Hello all!

MissJenFabulous aka The Nail Art Thief (Video Edition).

Beauty: Green and blue gradient with striped accent nail.

So far my favorite manicure to do is gradient.  Such a simple technique for such a beautiful outcome.  For this manicure used Sinful Colors Mint Apple, China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le, China Glaze Fairy Dust, and Seche Vite top coat.

 

 

This picture is blurred to show the Fairy Dust do it’s magic 😉

Beauty: Nailspiration from my daughter’s room

Having a girl definitely has it’s perks. Her room is FULL of inspirations for nail art. Even though it doesn’t really come out the way it does in my head, it’s still fun practicing! 😀

This manicure came from  the paint on her walls.

Beauty: Striped Manicure

Ok, so two things I’m not too fond of when it comes to manicures so far.  Sheer polishes and striping tape.  I can put the tape on with no problem but once it’s on I look at it and go, “Yuck!’  The tape on this manicure used to be purple.  For some reason it changed to silver.  I tried with and without top coat and still it lost the purple color.  I guess Ebay is not the place to buy it huh?  Sheer polishes are a whole different rant!

The color on my nails are from my Ulta haul (post Here) OPI DS Opulence, China Glaze No Fair Lady, and Zoya Yasmeen.  I LOVE the OPI color,  unfortunately the pictures give it no justice. (I need practice taking pics).

Beauty: Pink Gradient Nails

I used the sponge technique for this manicure. It was pretty simple but I definitely need more practice. I love how the China Glaze Fairy dust just puts it all together!

Beauty: Sally Hansen Insta Dri Review

I absolutely loved doing this manicure for my friend! First, the brush.  The brush is oval in shape not the traditional squared.  It’s thick and so easy to manage.  It covers more nail width area when swiping the polish to the tip.  The polish goes on smooth and minimal mess on the cuticles.

Secondly, it does what it says.  It really did dry quickly.  I felt I had to hurry before the polish clumped.  When it did dry, it dried like an acrylic paint.  It was a thick polish but I still had to use two coats. Definitely buying more of the Sally Hansen polishes just to have more of those brushes!
