My 13 year old cousin showed me how to do this so we did one another's nails while I was visiting. I always do her nails when I visit, but today she did mine! I love how they came out. Very cute. I've gotten a few compliments already. It's pretty easy too.
So these are my Double Bubble craft scissors. I love these little things and they make for very cute funky french. I have a box of twelve so there will be more upcoming. The next post will be a showcase the set. Anyways, so I used Essie in "Jamaica Me Crazy" as my base color. It's a bright deep Magenta with a pack load of lighter magenta shimmers. It dried with a little bit of a satin finish. Top coat is definitely a must. Then I used blue masking tape for the tips. I found that the scissors don't cut through regular scotch tape very well. They either get caught or don't cut through. The tips are Wet n Wild in "Ebony Hates Chris", which is an opaque quick dry. Quick dry is always a win for me.
Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Numbskull... Yes, I know I jacked this manicure up (check the ring finger). I had a bit of excess after I filed the tips off and I decided to pull it... Mistake! It snagged and pulled, but it's not so terrible. I think these are really adorable. A lot cuter on then in the box. I'll have some more Halloween Salon Effects in the next couple of days<3
I used the Sally Hansen pen for this. I don't know if using a thin tip brush would gave been better. I think it be smoother, but I don't think I'd be able to achieve the same curvature... Especially on myself. Have any if you tried the mummy manicure? I like it, but trying to do my own right hand was ridiculous, lol.
So this my first Halloween mani of many to come. Started with an orange and black tipped Funky French. Then I used Bundle Monster Plate 13 for the Spider Web and the additional spider. I took the second photo in the back of my ambulance (before my tour). I figured the Warning sticker added to my theme. I hope you guys like it and I'll be adding some more as soon as I change my mani.
And no... my nails did not magically grow. I got acrylic extensions. I'm tired of having short peely nails and not being able to fit my nice nail designs on my own nails! I've tried several cuticle oils, calcium builders, fortifying top coats, excerta excetra! So at the end of the day I got my nail extentions and I'm very excited to do some nail designs on nails that are a length deserving to be designed upon. I know they're "bad" for you, but if you take care of your nails and don't pop them off and take care of your cuticles and remove them properly then acryli extentions really shouldn't do that much damage. I've done tehm in the past and only had damage to the nails that I bit or pryed off. So wish me luck<3
