Fimo Nail Art and a Gradient

Hello all!

So today I have a mani that I did last week. I actually had some time on my hands so I decided to play with some of the Fimo canes a friend from work gave me. I will need a lot more practice cutting the canes to the proper thickness. lol. My mani came out super chunky and the flowers didn't even last five hours! But I also just stuck them on with seche vite top coat. After a little research I found that nail glue is a more approprate adhesive.
For the gradient I used Sinful Colors Savage and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Lacey Lilac. I just dabbed some of both onto a piece of tin foil and then used a clean triange makeup sponge to sponge them onto the nail. Please forgive the lack of clean-up. I was headed into the shower after and planned to use the hot water to get most of the excess off. I usually use a small angled make-up brush with nail polish remover on it.

I promise to get better at clean up so that the pics I post ook better.
Today though, my nails are still naked and -- just throwing this out there... I hate packing. :(

See you soon!

Revlon Blushed with nail art and First Post!


So I am new to the blog-o-sphere but I have developed a passion and it is one I have been dying to share.

Nail polish.

Sounds crazy right? But for the past year this hobby has become something of a >slight< obsession of mine. Or maybe a little more... An addiction? Anyway, let's not label it too harshly.

Nail polish, nail art and scouring the web for swatches and the latest designs have kept me busy and have only fueled the fire for this addiction. Not to mention finding the best sales then blowing some money on 9 bottles of polish at a time. Lol. Atleast I have a budget system in place now. :)

So on to the Blog!

I am hoping to make this a weekly blog where I can post all of my NOTD (Nails of the Day) or nail art that I come up with. Currently, I have naked nails because the bf and I are packing for a move. But I have some older art that I can show you today to kick off the site!

This is Revlon Blushed with Sinful Colors Black on Black. The paw prints were made using a dotting tool. Simple but cute.

Ok, this picture thing is going to take some time to work out. But this will get us started!

See you soon!
