My first nail tutorial XD

Always remember to apply a base coat before your primary color. Not only will this help keep your nail art fresh longer but will also keep colors from staining your nails; I say this because the Sinful Colors Innocent stains my nails without a base coat :$ not good….

Anyways, apply your base coat and let it dry. Then apply your primary color and let that completley dry. Apply tape to the nail starting at the very edge and laying it flat across the nail. Make sure there are no bubbles or openings that the polish can run into. Apply your secondary color and let it completley dry. Remove the tape and use a qtip to clean around your nails. Apply a top coat and viola! Beautiful nails!!!

Lots of colors would be awesome for this look. I chose to use:

*Chi ceramic top and base coat
*Sinful Colors Innocent
*Ardene Purple
*Sally Hansen Flawless

Brown n Pink

This amazing look was done with Ardene Taupes Off and China Glaze Petal To The Metal and topped off with Chi Ceramic Top Coat.  I used a nail stamp kit from Essence for the flower on the pinky nail :).

Ardene Polish can be bought at any Ardene store for 2/$6

China Glaze I bought from Sally Hansen for $5 (BOGO Deal)

Essence Nail Art Supplies can be bought at Shopper Drug Mart for $0.99-$5.99 High-res

More Nail Art XD

I used CHI CERAMIC TOP AND BASE COAT as a base.  Then I applied a few layers of SINFUL COLORS EASY GOING.  When that dried, I applied ARDENE DISCOBALL to 4 of my nails at the top and SINFUL COLORS CHARMED on the bottom of my 5th nail.   Then to top it I added a coat of SALLY HANSEN DIAMOND STRENGTH NO CHIP in FLAWLESS and another coat of the CHI CERAMIC TOP AND BASE COAT XD High-res

Red and Green Nails done with Sinful Colors ($2 @ Target) “Innocent” and Joe Fresh ($4 @ Superstore) “Apple”. I loved the look and really like the Innocent color only downfall is that when I removed the polish, the green kind of stained my nail :/ High-res

So I’ve been on a nail polish craze these last few months!! My boyfriend hates it because the amount of time it takes my nails to dry haha dont get me wrong I wish it dried quicker too but the fast dry nailpolish cant always be used in designs. Some of my favorite brands are Loreal Paris; they have some incredible colors and can be purchased at Target for under $6 a polish! My fav color at this moment is thier “Not a Cloud in the Sky” shade! Another good brand is china glaze; I get these from Sally Beauty Supply and again, TONS of colors to choose from!!!!
