These nail designs are inspired by valentines day as its coming up I thought if share this design with you!

First what you’ll need is :

20130122-152632.jpg

– red nail polish (my polish is BYS rebel red N29)
– silver glitter nail art lacquer ( BYS 011 silver glitter)
– black nail diamenties
– larger silver diamentie
– a wheel of nail decoration hearts ( silver)
– a dotting tool
– clear nail polish
– white nail lacquer

HINT- the love nail is for the ring finger only on both hands


INSTRUCTIONS

-Start off by painting your nails red, really red so do a couple of coats.

– Once dry get your white nail lacquer and start in the corner of your nail sweeping in a upwards position while flicking towards the end, so you achieve the faded look

– Do 4 lines per nail, and do this to all but your ring fingers.

– Followed up by doing the same step but with the silver glitter nail lacquer.

– In the corner at the bottom of your nail where the lines join add a larger silver diamentie!

– Add clear coat of nail polish .

pretty simple !

NOW for the love nail !

– These should be done on the decorative fingers

– Using your dotting tool pick up the black diamenties and one by one start writing the letter L
– continue this with the rest of the letters OVE

– I decided to write love in capitals as it was easier to fit on the nail

– Add two little silver hearts one on top of the V and one on the bottom of the O

– finish off with clear nail polish !

Acrylic nails

Hi all,
So today I decided to do my acrylic nails and I decided on blue tips! I absolutely love doing acrylic nails, iv only being doing them for about 2 and half years now !

Here’s only a quarter of what I have :
(When I first started doing nails )

20130116-172302.jpg

I’m always asked what I think the essentials are to doing nails..

> first off I think having great quality nail supply’s is most important, if you have cheap products it really shows.

> a good High powered nail drill with different settings to customize which speed is best, also good nail filers ones that arnt to harsh or to soft, this applies for buffers aswell ! Acrylic nails are all about the drilling and filing so anything that goes in that category I think should be high quality!

> The right size acrylic or gel nail brushes, trust me having a nail brush that’s to large for someone’s nail or to small doesn’t cut it like the correct sizing in a brush.

> DO not get cheap powders or liquid ! The better the products you buy the better the quality nails will be!

> also a thick clear UV nail polish to finish the nails off!

I do get all my supply’s from over seas but there great quality and haven’t had a problem just yet with any products !

I’m in the process of learning 3D nail art, as its becoming very popular, it’s very tricky to get the hang on but practice makes perfect

This is a picture with what 3D nail art looks like :
(Mine definitely don’t look like that just yet lol)

I’m not a big fan on the whole 3D look I would think the nails would get caught on a lot of things ! but everyone’s different .

I have herd about the big debate of round or square nails going around ! Like I said before everyone’s different and everyone has different styles and opinions , most of the people I do nails for have square, square nails have been the in thing for so long, but round nails look like there coming on top lately ! I like the square shape but who knows I might be converted soon 🙂 !

I have herd the horror story’s about nail infections aswell, I always wash my products that I can after using on each person, and never reuse my nail filers to much ! I soak my brushes after every use for half n hour and wash my nail towl atleast 2-3 times a week, I HAVNT had any problems so far! Hygiene in nails is important !!!


Anyway thanks for reading !
