Soft and Girly nail design

Hi everyone!
Today I am posting a soft and feminine design that still has a little wild side to it! :)


China Glaze Something Sweet
This color is too perfect. Does anyone ever realize that soft pinks make your hands look either red or really weirdly colored? For this one, at least on my skin tone, it didn't! Consider buying this if you are looking for a soft pink!


This is a super simple nail design to do! It barely takes any time. All you have to do is apply a small amount of nail glue onto the spot where you are putting the rhinestone. Then pick up the rhinestone with a toothpick. (Its best to coat the top of the toothpick with a clear nail polish, that way the rhinestone will easily stick to it) Place a different colored rhinestone curving around the bottom of your nail as you can see in the picture. Do this to as many nails as you would like! You can do it on every other nail, only one, whatever you want to do!

Please comment me with suggestions or just what you think of the design or blog! Thanks so much for reading :)

Criss Cross Nail Art

Hi everyone!
Today I am going to go through the steps of a super simple nail design. Anyone can do it and it barely takes any time!



To begin with, make sure you have three different colors. It can be any colors you want, so the possibilities are endless! I used Sally Hansen Going Green, China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, and Sally Hansen Blue it. (In that order)



Sally Hansen Going Green

For the first step, just paint your nails the color you want as the base. Apply as many coats as you need, but let each coat dry before you add the next.


Next, apply another color and sweep the brush diagonally across the nail. Apply two coats for this, just to make sure the polish doesn't look streaky. (You can stop here if you want, but if you want it to be more intricate, go on to the next step)




Now, take the last of your three colors and sweep it diagonally across your nail from the opposite direction. Wasn't that easy?


Please comment, follow, and send me suggestions!
