i just got duri rejuvacote nail growth system for my nails today! a friend told me about it so i thought i’d try, cause i can never get my nails longer than what you see in the pictures! has anyone ever used it before?
i think i’m gonna do a “sweets” theme for my nails tonight, that’ll be up in a few hours.
I love your posts!
But question: Do you naturally have a steady hand or did you have to work at it? Cause mine is really shaky!!
thank you!! they’re actually pretty naturally steady. sometimes if they’re shaky it means your blood sugar is low, so eat something and then try again! haha or you can rest your wrist against the table you’re working on! good luck! :) xoxo
Just started following!! Looovvee your tumblr. I have a mani with the OPI black shatter (check it out on my blog!) and once I remove it in the next couple of days, I'm definitely gonna try one of your looks. Have you ever done a "paint splatter" look? I'm super excited just learning & observing on your pg. Totally inspired. Ok I wrote enough lol. Keep it up!!
ahhhh yayyy thank you so much your comment made me so excited!! just looked, love it, i need to get some shatter polishes! that’s def on my list! i’ve attempted a paint splatter once.. it didn’t come out good so i took it off and never posted it.. but i’ve been wanting to try again!! if you try one of my designs, send me a pic, i’d love to see it!!! thank you again! xoxox
I LOVE YOUR BLOG! I was on a big nail polish obsession and found your blog and its gotten me so obsessed! Every time I wanna do my nails I come here for inspiration ! Im doing your/jordins leopard nails (well trying..:P) I have a question, did you get so good by lots of practice or did it all come naturally ? Are you good at doing other peoples nails ?:) I'm your opinion what's the best nail polish?
Sorry to ask so many questions !:P
And can I request a st Patricks day or Irish nails going to Ireland In march and I wanna be festive !
thank you sosososoooo much!!! i just had the biggest smile on my face while reading that! to answer your questions… my mom would always paint my nails when i was younger and it got me into painting them myself (i was still young so i didnt do designs) but i guess that kind of gave me a steady hand early on. i started doing more intricate designs a little over a year ago and started out with sharpies cause it’s easier with markers!! hahaha! but lots of practice is definitely key! yes, i do my friends nails occasionally. i love doing it but it can take a while when i have like 5 friends at once that want their nails painted!! lol! right now my two favorites are sally hansen xtreme wear and color club-both are on the cheaper side and have lots of colors to choose from :) and i just added your request to my list!! thank you so much! :D :D xoxox
congratulations to dorie (doriethefishstik) and alyssa (americasnexttopanga)!!! thank you all for entering, i enjoyed reading all of your emails! i’ll have another giveaway soon, maybe when i hit 1000?! :D
totally depends. a lot of the time i get distracted by random things like the computer or tv so it ends up taking me a lot longer than it should. a more simple design could take a half hour and more complicated ones like sesame street could take (if i get distracted) like 5 hours haha. i have a lot of patience i guess! lol :) xoxo
thefivestars asked:Hey, what do you use to do nail art? because the details seem very small so I’m wondering asloverstryst asked:I love what you do! It’s incredible & I hope to learn how to do it just as well. I was wondering though, what brushes do you use? How do you recommend cleaning them? etc. Thanks!
i use tiny tiny craft brushes that you can get at any craft store (ac moore, michaels, etc) i love regular nail art brushes that you can get at any beauty supply store but i find that for some of my designs the brush is too big! so it’s much easier to find the smallest brush you can at a craft store and use that! :) i clean them with nail polish remover! thank you both for your questions! :) xo
Hey, I was just wondering what you do to keep your nails long and healthy? Painting my nails weakens them and they break.
Also... when does the contest end? Because it's now 11pm Eastern time February 9th. I was wondering if you posted the wrong time or something?
oops! my bad about the contest! i fixed it, it’s feb. 13th :) thanks! and actually, having nail polish on my nails makes them stronger. my nails are really weak and soft and they tear easily so having a couple layers of polish on them makes them stronger. maybe invest in a better top coat? seche vite is really nice and thick and makes my nails REALLY hard! hope this helps! :) xo
for those of you that sent requests to my ask box, i’ve added them all to my list! minicookieee, paigealmighty, as-time-goes-by, and deepseadaughter. also, if you replied to my last post about requests, i got them all too! i obviously can’t do them all but i’m going to try and do as many as i can cause you all have such awesome ideas! thank you!!
so close to 500 followers, so look out for a giveaway within the next couple days! love you all! :D xo
absolutely lovee your blog and tutorials :)
how long did it take you before you started doing intricate designs like the sesame street one (which looked awesome btw)
thank you!! :) hmm.. that’s a good question! it took me a while to even realize all the things i can do on my nails.. i bought a small konad kit last year, and after getting tired of all those designs and not wanting to buy more plates i just started to try to draw things myself with toothpicks and even sharpies!! then from there i bought paint brushes. i’ve always loved nail art, and i’ve always done simple designs and crazy colors and everything, but it’s been in the past year or so that i’ve really started to get really into it!
