Chevron Nails

Hi, today I have Chevron nails using a technique I saw on YouTube.  I can barely draw a straight line but with this little trick you can have this look or anything else.

First you get some scotch tape.  In the space between where you cut and the tape meets the roll there is a space in that space you use your nail polish to paint that area.

  I painted it white.  Once the first coat dries then you add a second coat and wait for that to dry.
Ok,  once that dries you can cut the tape past the painted part of the tape.  I went to Michaels and bought three designed shears.  Cut the polished tape with the shears.

I cut the first piece.
Tape on the finger and trim the ends to make sure it is even with the nail.
Cut a piece of another color.  I had Yellow.
So, I lined it up next to the first piece of tape but you can leave space in between if you want.

The Yellow did not stick so I had to change to a teal piece. I placed the teal where the yellow was.
Then I cut another piece.

Then I taped the last piece onto the nail.  It was not flush with the end of the nail.  So since it was not flush I gently filed it down and there is the design.


  You can use any colors you can put them on vertically,  diagonally,   use your imagination.  This is what I came up with. 




Pretty neat and easy.  Top with a top coat.  This was totally my first trial so I am sure the next one will come out better but I am pleased even with this design.
So, is this something you will try?  If you like this tutorial let me know and I can do more of these.

Ciao for now,

Found This Last Night. The Easiest blk/wth Manicure

Katy Perry has been sporting this manicure. I saw it about a month ago when she was on the cover of Elle magazine and when I saw it I immediately came home and did it photographed it and put something else on. It lay there in my new folder and I noticed it and thought why has it taken me so long to post this.




This is so easy all I did was paint my nails white wait till they dry then you can use a striper pen or just the brush of your black nail polish and make the curve let that dry and do two dots.  It is easy but I got a little impatient and smudged the black dot on the index finger.  It is easy and it really looks nice.  So, when you want something fast and easy try this, it is fun and looks like you put some effort into it.

Kimber's 31 Day Challenge Black and White

When I saw black and white I knew exactly what I was going to do espcieally since I had just gotten my new plate from Llarowe it is the B plate.  I really like it and might get the A plate too.  So what I did was painted two nails white my ring and middle finger and my thumb, index and pinky are black.  I stamped the white ones with black and the black ones with white.  I like the way they came out and it was an easy manicure.




So, do you like black and white manicures or do you think they are boring?

Kelly Challenge-Dots

Ok, I am going to be honest. Dots are not my specialty. Almost anything freehand is not my specialty. I can't draw very well but I do my best. So, this is my best try on dots. I realize I need to practice more.




So, there is my attempt at dots.  I'll work on it more and that is all I have to say.
Ciao, bellas,

Beatlemania Blackbird

I wanted to do some nails based on the songs of the Beatles.  The reason I picked these two patterns was because the song says, " blackbird singing in the dead of night".  So, I found an image with birds and then the other image of course are music notes.  When we went to Vegas we got to see the Love Show (it is from cirque de soleil and plays nothing but the songs of the Beatles).   I've seen alot of great shows.  This was the BEST!!!!!  Everyone watching the show was singing  and having a great time.  I was mesmerized the performers actually fly right at you.  There is so many cool things going on, it is great.  If you love the Beatles and are planning a trip to Vegas you must see this show.  It is playing at Cesar's and it doesn't matter where you sit.  We had nosebleed seats and bought them because the person selling us the tickets said that is the best place to sit because the performers fly so closely over you.  If I go to Vegas again.  I will go see it again.  So I hope you like this. 
I'd really like some feedback or comments.  There is a box at the bottom of this post and all you have to do is check a box.  I know sometimes righting comments can be a drag but checking a box is pretty easy.  I need some feedback from those who read the posts or just look at the pictures it will help me either keep on doing what I am doing or change my format somehow.  So, please just check a box.  It would mean a lot to me.

Ciao for now bellas,
