This one was fun. Though gradients tend to be a tad messy.
I saw this idea on Pinterest and I really took a shine to it. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.
I used the glue technique to keep my fingers from getting all messy. It worked really well. Plus I get the added fun of pulling glue off my fingers. Always liked doing that as kid.

Did you know I have two different whites? I can’t tell the difference.
Color Club is called “French Tip ” and Nina is called “French White”.
Day 7 – Black & White
I went through several designs before choosing these overlays. I was given these as a gift and I’ve used the other style a couple times. I decided to use up one.
My mother taught me to not “save” things for that “one day”, but to make every day special. So I’m trying to use things I’ve put off.
Some friends of mine are having a black and white themed party this weekend. So I thought I’d use another of the Jamberry samples. Turned out pretty well.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismay, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10
I know I write a nail blog, but it’s been a difficult week and My Father is with me and I wanted to share The Comforter with you. Now the nails.
Today I was babysitting and we did nails. It was…interesting. You paint the nails of 3 four year olds (and a 10 yr old) and see how you do. Each of them chose some form of sparkle and one had me do a heart on each nail. Each in a different color. But they also repeatedly said they loved it. 🙂
For me, it’s on to Day 3- Yellow. The Pinspiration I found has polka dots which are so easy and yet so pretty.
I will not list all the colors I used on the girls. Not only because it’s an exhaustive list, but because there were so many I can’t remember.
Here are mine:
Yellow: China Glaze, “Happy Go Lucky”
Black: Wet ‘n Wild, “Black Creme”.
My sister’s bridal shower was Saturday. I spent all week getting stuff for the decorations. It turned out reaaly well, she was very happy. The theme was Chanel, so this vase was one of our centerpieces and these are the nails I did.
Happy New Year everyone. Hope everyone was safe last night as they celebrated.
These were my nails for new years. I saw the pattern on Pinterest and it turned out pretty good. My bows are a little messy. I can’t find some of my tools. Anyway, I like it.
So these are last weeks nails. I am so behind!
First we have a turquoise with a gold accent on the ring finger. I had several people ask me if the gold “ring” finger was significant. Sadly, no.
New Bohemian – Color Club; Seashell – L.A. Colors
Next we have a pre-Valintine Day pink gradient. Very fun (and easy) and I got several compliments.
Sinful Colors – Easy Going
Wet ‘n Wild – Tickled Pink
China Glaze – Pool Party
Sinful Colors – Timbleberry
China Glaze – Caribbean Temptation
And these are my little piggies for this past week. The ink sparkle didn’t spread as much as I thought it would; it sort of clumped and you can’t see as much of the black as I’d like. But it still looks nice.
Wet ‘n Wild – Black Creme and Sparked
