Purple Water Marble Nails

I have practiced water marble nails a few times, and they are quite hard. This was probably the third or fourth time I did them, and they turned out much better!

What you do for this style of nails is take a small glass of cold water, 3-4 colors of nail polish, some sort of tooth pick, and tape. You first start by taping off your finger with clear scotch tape so only the nail is open. You then quickly start dripping a drip of nail polish into the cup, and follow it with the other colors of your choice in a bulls eye fashion. After you put as much nail polish in the cup you then dip your nail into the water slowly and use a toothpick to wipe away the extra nail polish in the cup.

After you take the tape off your fingers there may be some nail polish that got in the tape and on your skin. If that happens simply wipe it off with a bit of nail polish remover on a cotton ball.

The final result should look like this! :)

Yellow French Tip Daisy Nails

For these nails I started off with a simple yellow french tip...

I then used my dotting tools to add the white daisy flowers!

I think this is a perfect spring nail design and can be done with any bright spring colors! :) What do you think?!

Princess Nails

I call these nails princess nails because the pink and silver glitter together remind me of a princess! All I did was use a simple light pink color and put this lovely glitter art polish on my ring finger of each hand to really make it pop! :)

I really love the fun flirtyness to these nails, and they are so simple and easy to do!

You can do it with any solid color and glitter!

Colorful Background Nails

Today my little sister wanted me to try this cool colorful look that one of my friends found! You can do this background colorful look in many different ways, but she wanted it on two fingers per hand, and with zebra print on top.

What I did was put blobs of about 4-5 different colors randomly over white nailpolish, and topped it with black zebra stripes! I really liked the way it turned out!

If you wanted to try something different you could add black leopard over it, or even do some nails with leopard, and some with zebra!

Flower Acrylic Nails

My sister Laura wanted me to do acrylic nails for her. This is only the third time I have done acrylics and they turn out better each time! I really like how her's turned out!
She said she wanted some kind of design on them, so she chose this half flower and I put a gem on it for the center.

This is another picture with the color pink I used for the flowers!

Valentine's Day Nails

In honor of Valentine's Day I painted my nails for the fun holiday!

I used my dotting tools to make the polka dots on the tips of my nails, and I hand painted the hearts using the nail polish brush and the dotting tools.
Hope you like! :)

Palm Tree Nails

A few days ago I repainted on my acrylics this purple color. I then wanted to add a design, so I went on my pinterest nails board to see what would go good with the purple, and I found these palm trees!

I know it's not summer yet, but I was loving it so I had to try it!
I think the palm trees turned out way better than I thought they would and everyone seemed to love them! They actually weren't as hard as I thought they would be!

I will definitely be doing these again when summer time comes around! :)
