Grr, I'm a Tiger!

I have these awesome Sally Hanson Nail Pens in a few different colors but I was really drawn to the black one today also, I was drawn to my orange nail polish, so why not put them together! Today we are doing TIGER NAILS/claws!

You will need: Orange nail polish and a Black nail pen!

Step 1: Paint all of your nails with the orange

Step 2: Using your nail pen, make short and tall, thin triangles on your nails..
It will look something like this!

Do the same thing to the rest of your nails, and your done!!

This is my Tiger =)

Earth Day!

Today is Earth Day! So I'm going to show you an Earth Day nail tutorial!

You will need: blue, green and yellow (optional) nail varnish, and a dotting tool

Step 1: Using the blue polish, paint a small circle in the center of your thumb nail.

Step 2: Using the green polish and a small dotting tool, create small pieces of land on your globe!

*OPTIONAL: Using the yellow, paint on a little sun!*
*ALSO OPTIONAL: Alternating with the blue and green, create french tips on the rest of your nails*


If you could go to one place anywhere on earth, where would you go?
I'd go to Ireland!

An Apple a Day!

I love apples, and I'm going to show you all an apple nail design! (Comment me a little note or smiley face if you like apples too!)

You will need: Two colors of your choice for the apples (yellow, red, green etc.. depending on what kind of apple you want) also, a lighter green, and white for the inside of the apples!

You will also need: A pink (optional) for the worm, and brown for the stems.

A dotting tool...

And of course: An apple for inspiration!
(Can you tell I'm a Twilight nerd?)

Step 1: Paint your index and ring finger with both of your apple colors, leaving a small triangle-like shape at the top.

Step 2: Using the same two colors, carefuly paint a small apple shape on your middle and pinky fingers. *IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE PERFECT!! Honestly, have you EVER seen an absolutely PERFECT apple?* The shape I made on my pinky looks kind of like lungs.. haha! 

Step 2.5 *OPTIONAL* Using the dotting tool, make a little wavy line with the pink color, underneath that fill in with light green. Then, give it a pair of eyes and a mouth =]

Step 3: Leaving a small outline of your apple color around, fill in the apple half (or lungs depending on how great your apple painting was) with white

Step 4: Add the stems and seeds with the brown and your done!!!!

Thank you SO much for reading my blog!

Keep Your Nails Healthy!

I've recently been doing some research on nail health and I thought I'd share some "Nail Knowlage" with you =)

To keep your nails healthy here are a few things you can do:

1. Keep your nails clean and dry.
2. Avoid nail biting and/or picking.
3. File your nails in one direction and round the tip rather than filing to a point.
4. Stay away from nail polish removers with Acetone and Formaldehyde.

Also here are some vitamins and some foods that are good to eat that are high in those vitamins:

Zinc: Prevents Yellowing, Deformed nails and Hangnails which are my worst enemy =P
Vitamin A: Helps increase skin cell health- healthier cuticals means faster nail growth!
Calcium: Helps nail growth and strength.

Foods high in Zinc: Shrimp, Crab, Chicken, Beef , Dark Chocolate, Cocoa Powder, Lamb, and Peanuts! (Fun Fact about peanuts: they are one of the ingridients in TNT)

Foods high in Calcium: Skim and Whole Milk, Plain low fat yogurt, Feta Cheese, Broccoli, Okra, Orange, and canned Sardines!

Foods high in Vitamin A: Cheese, Eggs, Raw carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Spinach, Mangoes, and Apricots!


I hope you enjoyed some "nail knowlage"

New Stuff!

I went shopping with my Mom today and got two cool nail things I wanted to share with you!

It looks kinda light blue in the picture but, I got a really pretty turquoise nail polish by Sinful Colors called Rise and Shine! I love it and can't wait to use it! I got a Sally Hanson nail art pen in Black, these are super cool because you use it just like you would a real pen, but it's on your nails instead of paper =P

Also I painted my nails! But I can't show you a tutorial because it wasn't my idea, but click *here*  to see how!
I did take pictures of how they came out though!

 It's a Converse shoe!!! I love these so I just had to paint my nails like this!

Please check out the tutorial!
