1. Simply reblog this post, and in your post, tell me an original idea for a winter nail design. make it good and make yours stand out!

2. i will look through all the notes on this post and pick my favorite idea. i will then do that idea and the winner will win this: (ps.. the ulta nail polishes are much cooler looking than in this picture.. my camera didn’t pick up all the sparkles that are in them)

Good luck and have fun! message me with any questions/anything i may have forgotten to say in this post! :) xo



so i need a favor from all of you, and in return i’m going to make it into a giveaway. (my followers outside of the USA.. feel free to complete the first two steps, i would love you forever, but for this one i am only shipping prizes to US. sorry!)

what to do:

1. go to http://www.facebook.com/avstv and "like" the page.

2. go to http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150688979405005&oid=65355690922&comments and "like" the comment posted by LADLY MASSEY.

3. message me here on tumblr and tell me your name so i can check to make sure you liked the comment.

4. the object is for ladly massey to get the most amount of “likes.” right now she’s losing by about 40. IF AND ONLY IF SHE WINS, i will pick 20 random people that completed all the steps correctly, and i will send those 20 people a small prize. possibly a nail art brush, nail polish, or nail jewels.. haven’t decided yet! if she doesn’t win, no prizes! 

you guys have until july 8th. GO GO GO!

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
