Love Letter Nails

Hello all! It’s been a little while since I posted on the blog but I’ve been trying to get a bunch of nail art done… Check out my IG for a sneak peek!
For today I give you some carrier pigeon love letter nails! I used some nail tattoos from the nail art display at Walmart, check it out they have a whole line of Fing’rs heart 2 art nail art products. I painted a striped air mail ruffian around a few nails with some acrylic paint. Add some heart shaped “stamps” to finish it all off!


I have used these nail tattoos in the past and they are easy to use, just make sure to cut the tattoos down to size before applying them. These were a little more difficult to apply because all the images are separate and you really need to avoid slippage during the application process.
Anyone else use these? Let me know what you think of them!

For this look I used:
Fing’rs nail tattoos
Seche Vite Base Coat
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear red carpet
Maybelline Color Show porcelain party, shocking seas
Acrylic paint for the stripes
Seche Vite Top Coat
I also used some cute heart shaped rhinestones from cheeky beauty.

Next up I will be showing you some sunken treasure using seashells I ordered from Shop The Nail Room!

Ahoy Mates! Nautical Manicure

The 30 Day Nail Challenge has finally come to an end. While I enjoyed being guided by the challenge I now have to take the training wheels off and come up with my own manicure ideas. I bought a great looking red from Revlon called velvet rope, it’s a nice deep red with no sparkles or shimmer, a true blood red. I also scored a whole bunch of striping tape from Cheeky Beauty for an incredibly low price! I love the Cheeky Fairies, I’ve bought nail plates, rhinestones and, striping tape from them, they truly have amazing deals.
So enough talk here is my nautical look tape manicure.

The little red pearls I used were also from my giant order from Cheeky Beauty. They have a flat back and you apply them using a little bit of clear polish, I love the way they look but they bled a little when I applied my layer of Miracote Top Coat. I don’t think it would have been as noticeable on a darker base. I did the same thing with the star accents, I dabbed a little bit of clear polish on and pressed the star into place. Add a layer or two of topcoat and Bob is your uncle!

Have any of you tried adding rhinestones or gleequins to your manicures?

For this look I used:
Seche Vite Base Coat
Revlon velvet rope
Revlon spirit
Essence date in the moonlight
Miracote tip coat
Striping tape, stars and, pearl accents are available from Cheeky Beauty

Stay tuned
