Pink, Purple and Blue Marbles!!

29 Apr

HaPpY MoNdAy!!!! This morning I decided to get up and do another marble nail manicure. I used Avon Cotton Candy as my base color and L.A. Colors Purple Delight and Wet “n” Wild Blue Moon for my accent colors. I think these turned out a little better than my first try at this. I used a lighter base color which made the designs show up better. Hope you all like!!

NAIL FIX: Nail Band-Aid

24 Apr

Hey everyone! I’ve had a lot of people asking about it, and so I  wanted to do a recap of one of my favorite nail tips:

The Tea Bag Band- Aid

Besides chipped and smudged polish, my other pet peeve with my nails would have to be…a broken or chipped nail. This hurts for me most because growing my nails out is a project! I’ve found 2 ways to that really do fix this problem: UV/LED gel polish and a tea bag.

Today I want to tell you all how to fix a broken nail with a tea bag. What you will need: nail polish remover, nail glue, a small piece of a tea bag to fit over the tear in the nail.

1.Clean your nail from any polish or oils with nail polish remover/acetone and warm water

2.Buff your nail a little to help the tea bag stick better

3. Apply some nail glue around the area of the break then put the piece of the teabag on top of the glue

4. Put more nail glue on the top of the tea bag

5.After letting the fingernail COMPLETELY dry, gently buff the area so that the nail is smooth

6. If necessary, wash hands and apply another layer of nail glue, dry, buff, and wash

7. Apply base coat and polish as usual

Because I don’t have any broken nails right now (surprisingly) I’m not able to show you pictures doing this myself. So here’s an illustration from Honeymunchkin.com that shows you what it should look like. She used a this piece of fabric which might also work as well.
