This is the Claires mood changing nail polish and I did a design over it. I used Claires mood changing nail polish in calm/wild. Santee nail art in dark blue and a white strip rite. In the bottom there is a dot of blue glitter Santee emerald but its not a green glitter so im not sure why its called emerald but whatever so then if you look at the top paper I put a star witch is from a Kleancolor nail lacquer in aurora. In the bottom its not there because I took the picture bofore I put it but you can see it in the top picture. But I only put the star on my ring finger and thumbs.
This is Claires mood changing nail polish in wild/calm. Wild is the pink color and the purple is the calm color. When it on your nail and if you have a free edge it does like a fading effect. The pinker color is when your warmer and the purple color is when its color. This is $5.00 at Claires and I got mine but 1 thing get it half off so I got 2 for about $8.50 you save $2.50 I think it was worth it I really like this nail polish! I also have the orange/peachy color 2 a really light orange-ish color thats the bored/excited. This was 2 coats and it was good the first coat was stricky but the 2ns one was good. I hope this helps!
Heather did her nails! She used Sally Hansen Insta-dri in flashy fuchsia a black and white strip rite. She is really proud of them and im really proud of her! We both like these nails a Lot they are cute! Today she put some glitter on them it the Sally Hansen in diamonds. Now I like them even better. =)

Evey month one Friday a month I will be making a post for Scrappy Gifts blog where she will link me in her side bar thing. I will be telling you how to do a design on your nails. So today I did this its a pink back round and this design coming out of the upper left and bottom right. What I did was did 3 black lines in those corners. Then I did 3 more blue lines in between the black line. Then 3 white line over all that where every it would look good. When you do the lines kinda flick it at the end. I also added some silver glitter in spots. Over all of that is fine glitter. Oh I also put big round glitters in the right and left upper and lower corners. I used 1 coat of Revlon sweet tart then 1 coat over that of China glaze pink voltage (neon). Now the strippers I used was a black stripe rite 2 Art decos in white and aqua and a 2 way nail art pen and brush thats silver glitter. The big round glitters are a Cover girl in disco dazzle. Over all that is Sally hansen diamonds. So go check out Scrappy Gifts she has amazing scrap books and other cute things!! http://www.scrappy-gifts.com/ =)

In the first picture I half pink zebra print half black then on the black side I made a thick line with a flower in the middle. I didnt like it and on all my nails it was messy looking so today I redid then and got whats in my 3rd picture. Not that different but its not as messy and I like it better. In the last picture is where I got the idea from it is my spanish notebook. In the 2nd picture the colors are Sinful colors snow me white a black Stripe rite and Essence nail art in pink !. For the flower I used Sinful colors snow me white again and NYC polyester pink for the middle dot. See so sometimes you dont always get the design you want the first time so just try again!

Yesterday I painted my nails these I used Pure ice electric! a silver Stripe rite for the big circle glitters I used Cover girls disco dazzle. On my ring finger and thumb I put the star and the glitters going around my cuticle in the left corner and in the middle or the star i put 1 glitter but you cant see it. On my other fingers I put the glitters around my left cuticle and and around the right corner I put the glitters. To make the star I started like you would make a triangle but when you get to the bottom put a diagonal line up to both sides the connect them across fill it in then it you need to make a better point you can. That how I got my star hope it helps.
This is Pure ice in electric! its a sparkly/shimmery black. When its on your nails you cant really see the sparkles in it but in the light you can. I like it and if you wanted a little bit more shimmers you could just put a glittery nail polish over it.

These are my nail art brushes I only use them in acrylic paint except for the one with the green handle. The ones I use for acrylic paint are very easy to clean all you have to do if run it under water and once no color it coming off of it its clean so dry it off then it good for the next time you use it. The one for nail polish I clean the color off with nail polish remover then I let it soak in hot water so the bristles dont get hard. Once its been about 3 hours I take it out then dry it and run my finger back and fourth and its also good for next time. You can find these at Sallys beauty supply I got mine from Micheals and Walmart.
If you cant do designs on your nails you can do this! All you need it a nail polish in a color, clear and a plastic bag. I used 2 colors that are Avon golden rose and NYC 203A fast-dry nail enamel theres no name and Sinful colors nail hardener. It doesnt have to be a nail hardener thats just what I used. What you do is make any type of design on the bag with your nail polish and let that dry when its dry put a thick coat of clear over that. When thats dry you peal it of and you have a little sticker type thing. I put clear then stick it onto my nails. You could put them on your toe nails or finger nails.

~1st one is Sinful colors-Frenzy~
~2nd one is Wet&Wild-Sparked~
If I didnt take this off this nail polish it would of took for EVER to dry! All I did is put 3 coats and then I put a really big blob of nail polish over the 3 coats then I spread it out all over my nail. I originally wasnt going to put these pictures up but I decided to when I was looking at my pictures. Both of these are just glitters in clear nail polish so it you wanted it to look like that It would take a lot of coats.
This is the crystal nail file I have I saw the crystal and glass ones are the best ones for your nails so I got this one from Sallys Beauty supply for about $4.00. Its double sided and in the middle is just glass. This one is the brand ASP I dont know what that stands for. I got this file about a month ago and my nails look and feel the same as they did when I was using my other nail file so im not sure what this is supposed to do for your nails. I do think it takes length off easily and and if you brook part of your nail and need to file it this one works really good for that and to just file you nail. I do like this nail file at first it felt like it wasnt good for your nails but then i got used to it so now I like it.

I did my nail today I call them neon nails because the pink and yellow are neons. The yellow is China glaze yellow polka dot bikini. The pink is Sinful colors pink. The white for for petals is Sinful colors snow me white. Then for the dot in the middle is the China glaze yellow. For these flowers I didnt drag the petals witch is what I normally do because I didnt have a toothpick I have the small dotting tool I could use but I liked it without the line today. The gold glitter is Art deco gold glitter.

This is a nail dryer/buffer/cuticle pusher/fake nailness lol I dont know what the other things do. Out of these things I only use the nail dryer witch is barley ever and the buffer with the brush after I buff then. The buffer makes your nail smooth but you could just use a buffing block. the buffer id the white circle its feel kinda like felt. This is a one that needs to be charged and its kinda hard to put the charger back in here it has like a really little space this nail dryer does help to dry your nails faster but you could always hold your nails in front of a fan lol. this is from Homedics. I dont know where this one is from of how much it coasts because my parents gave it to me. Unless you do fake nails you dont need this.hope it helped!
On top there are nail art stickers I got from Walmart I think for about $5.00 and on bottom I have a mini rhinestone weal from target for $1.00 is the 1 dollar section so you probably cant find them there anymore but you can find them at a lot of different places. I use the sticker on my toes and I dont really use the rhinestones because I pick them off my fingers but im going to try to use them I dont mind it on my toe nails. On some on the stickers there are rhinestones so thats fine im not sure I just pick it off my nails. In this weal there are flowers, stars, hearts, tear drop and a circle. Its all different colors clear, red, pink, green, blue and purple. The stickers are good if you cant do nail art but it still looks like you did a lot of work and the rhinestones are good it you want to add some shine and its just cute. So I hope this helps.
This is the Essence nail art stampy set. It comes with a stamper, scraper and an image plate. I dont think you can buy any other image plates like the Konad stamping. I dont have the Konad stamping stuff and dont plan on getting it because I know I wont use it because I dont us this except on my toes. Another thing that is different about the Essence stamper and the Konda is that Konad has there spacial polish (I think its thicker than regular nail polish) and with the Essence one you can use any nail polish. You do have to work quick with this so before you start practice a couple of times. With this is you mess up you could just take your other nail and scrap it off witch is a good and bad thing I guess. Sometimes the image you are putting on your nails doesnt go on your nail or the stamper all the way so you have to start over. I got this at Ulta for about $3.00 I think that a good deal! lol hope this helps
This is the Avon liquid freeze and Sally Hansen Insta-dri speed dry drops. These are good if you r in a rush but other wise I dont really use them I like then a lot. All they do is freeze the top of your nail polish so if you hit or run into something it is still going to make a make a mark on your nail. So that makes it a little harder to tell when its dry. I like the drops better than the spray because the spray gets all over your finger. That is good for your cuticle but its a weird texture. The drops dont really get all over so I like that better. I dont know how much these 2 things are im guessing the Avon around 7 dollars maybe and the drops maybe around 10 dollars but I could be way off I dont know sorry. Hope that helped.
This is the other buffing block I have. I only use this when my nails are stained/dyed for the nail polish I wore. When you have no nail polish on just go back and fourth your nail kinda fast and it should look better than it did. It works good if you wore a yellow nail polish and then your nails are dyed/stained then buff it out and your good. hope this helps.

This is Sally Hansen Insta-dri nail polish going left to right is is presto pink 15 flashy fuchsia 14 lively lilac 26. I really like these nail polishes because the brush is big and in only need 1 coat but I still put 2. The only problem is that it gets thick once you get to the amount of about the word dri is. But you can still wear it its not thick like it never drys. This nail polish drys really fast to! So I really like these nail polishes. If you have a chance to get these I think you should. hope this is helpful!
I did my nails 1 day ago I did a french tip manicure. My nails a really weird the white of my nail starts farther down on some of my nails then others so I have to cover it up. I used Avon sheer french pink (3coats) then over that I used Sinful colors social ladder. For the white on my tips I used Sinful colors snow me white. Then over all that I used Sally Hansen diamond strength in diamonds. So after all the time that took to dry I guess it was worth it.... on my pointer finger you can kinda see what im talking about. But once you put all that you cant see the tip of your nail so with a stripe rite I outlined my tip then filled it in with the white nail polish. Hope this helped!

This is the Rimmel london french tip pro. Sorry about the 2nd pic it looks kinda pink because I forgot to take a picture of the bottle when I took the picture of the brush. The color is just how it looks in the 1st picture. the brush is skinny and a little longer than the Essence nail art 1. I like this brush better though. It says it lasts up to 10 days but im not sure if it does that because I havent tried doing a french tip with it yet. This was $3.99 at Ulta. There was a loy in the bottle so I just got it. Hope this helps.
These are the 2 was nail art pen and brush I have 24 colors for like $8.00 on E-bay. But i got 2 of that green glitter in the top right hand corner. So i really have 23 colors. The brush is like The sinful colors one just a little thicker not by much though. These are hard to open so dont close then that hard because you will have problems opening it. The pens gets clogged easily to. But it comes with a unclogger pin type thing. Over all I think its ok not the best but not terrible. The pin tip looks the same as any other so I though there was no point in a picture. So I guess for $8.00 its good. and I would probably buy more if I wanted/needed more colors but right now I dont. I hope this is helpful.
These are my Stripe rites they dont have names but I have a black, white. metallic-ish silver, blue, kinda shimmery purple and a pink. These are acrylic paint based so its not that liquidy. Some people dont like these but I like them a LOT. I think its worth the $3.99 but that is a little expensive but they last a good amount of time. I got those really messy but whatever I dont really care. I am running out of the black, white, pink and blue one and I messed up the brush of the pink and purple one by putting it in regular nail polish so dont do that. I kinda fixed the pink one but not really. I can still use them it just annoys me. So I hope this helped.
This is the Sinful colors nail art going left to right I have me first 1622, morning breath 1623 and lagoon 1650. This brush is kinda like the Art deco 1 just this on is a little shorter. These are $1.99 at Walgreens. I like these I would buy more but they dont have very many colors. So I think these are good and thats about it. I hope this helped!
