My Nail Obsession

I am not a professional nail tech.  I am just someone that likes to sit at home and do her nails.  Sometimes they turn out really well, and other times…let’s just say that it’s a good thing the nail polish remover was near by.

Recently, I placed an order on Amazon for all kinds of nail art stuff.  It is trickling in, and I am stoked. I mean, I have jewels, real dried flowers, new stamping plates, and more!

I would love to post some thoughts on these products as I use them.  I recently had a mini nail polish haul too.  I went to Target and found tons on clearance for under a dollar, same at Ulta (and they were brands like OPI, China Glaze, etc.) and Sally’s.  I love, love, love a deal!  It is extremely rare that I will pay full price for nail polish (or anything really) because it feels so good to me to feel like I snagged something on the cheap.

Here are a few photos of nails I have done for myself in the past.

Caviar Mani

Microbead Manicure

Here is a pic of a caviar manicure I did.  (Remember how I posted that disclaimer about not being a nail tech?  Well, I’m not a photographer either.)

Water Marbled Nails

Water Marbling

Here is a pic from my very first attempt at water marbling.  I still needed to go back and clean up the edges.

Ombre Sponging

Sunset Sponge

Here was some ombre sponging, with a little glitter on top.

Fourth of July Pedi

Patriotic Piggies

Fourth of July toes.  (I really should wait to snap the pics until I clean up the edges, huh?)

Fimo Fruit Nails

Fimo Fruit Slices

Fimo fruit nails, with some glitter on the others.

Rhinestone Flower

Teardrop and Round Rhinestones

Rhinestone toes…

Heart Rhinestones and Glitter

Heart Rhinestone and Glitter Pieces

…with rhinestone and glitter piece nails.

I do everything on my natural nails.  I do not go to a salon.  All of this was done at home.  I think the little flaws make it homey.  🙂

Let me know what you think!  I can’t wait to get more up here!
