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! :)

Skittle Nails

My Mom bought me a ton of new colorful spring time nail polishes the other day, so when I came home from school this weekend I had to come up with something colorful to paint on my sisters nails!
I saw the idea to do M&M's, but my sister wanted skittle nails instead, so that's what I did! :)

I think they turned out so cute, and I just love all the bright colors!

Thanks for the nail polish Mom! <3

Hearts, Hearts, Hearts

I love hearts! I saw this super cute nail idea also on Pinterest! I love the colors grey and pink together and the white stripes just add a little bit more fun to the nails! For some reason this is one of my favorites that I have done, and I think it is the color combo!

After doing those I decided to try another heart stripe combination!

I hope you love it as much as I do! :)

Hello Kitty Nails

So my boyfriends sister is in LOVE with Hello Kitty! She has been wanting me to paint her nails, so I found a way to do Hello Kitty nails on Pinterest! I tested it out on her and she LOVED it! :)

The yellow nose is a bit hard to see in this picture, but its there!
Overall I think these turned out really cute and can be done in red or any shade of pink!

Yesterday was my first attempt at doing acrylic nails. I decided to try them because my Mom was asked by a friend if I do acrylics. I said I've never done them, but I'm sure I could figure it out. So I went to rite aid and found a Kiss Salon Style Acrylics package for $18 and decided to try it! I have gotten my nails done in a salon a few times before, so just by watching them I kind of figured out how to do it. I called my cousin up to see if she wanted me to try it on her and she did! I ended up doing white tips on her, and clear natural ones on mine so I can paint over them! :)
Here is a picture of the french tip ones that I did! (I think they turned out pretty good for my first time ever doing them!)

The only thing that could have been better was more practice on how much powder to use for each nail so that it come out nice and smooth. Other than a few uneven ridges I think it turned out REALLY good! :)
Here's mine... (Haven't painted over them yet)

Since I did mine after Eileen's mine turned out a little smoother I think. I just need to paint them and they are all set to go! :)

This is what my acrylics looked like after I painted them! :)
Hope you like!

Zebra Nails

        I saw on pinterest this awesome design for my nails so I HAD to try it! :)

I started by doing my nails half white, I then added half bright hot pink to the other side. I added the black stripes to each nail, and topped it off with a silver glitter streak down the middle!

You could do this with any color to take the place of the pink. I was also thinking it would look really cool if I did it only on my ring fingers, and had the rest of my nails pink! Just some thoughts...

My little sister also made me a zebra print hair bow, so when I had my nails done like this I decided to add a little bit of my own pink duck tape on the bow to match my nails! Here's a picture...
