Easy but Fun Mani

As a base color on my nail tips I used a pastel green polish-sry no name or number- but the brand is Claire's- came in a mini pastel polish set

I applied 2-3 coats...then on top of that i applied China Glaze pink crackle polish - Broken Hearted

and then with black acryli paint and a toothpick i added small dots across the smile line...and thats it..apply top coat and your done :)

I broke my pinky finger nail :( ..kind of an eye sore but thankfully it will grow back..and if you hadnt already noticed I cut all my nails to a shorted length

but anyways like i said its easy and the colors are fun!

what do you think??

Another phone case I designed-Girly Skull

I designed and decorated another case for my phone and I am in LOVE with this case...my other one i made was WAY over the top...i still like it but its not for everyone..not everyone into the over kill of rhinestones but this new one i made while it still has rhinestones its no wheres near as much.

I started off with sculpting a clay skull and baking it

Once it had cooled down..using acrylic paints and some rhinestones I gave it more details...then glazed it to seal everything in


As for the case this time i decided to paint it....I drew a series of lines..painted a purple and silver pattern.Once the purple was dried and got a clear glitter polish and paint over the purple..then for the silver sections...once dry i applied nail foil glue,once that dried and applied blue and silver holographic foil to it..I also used black striping tape normally used for nails but i thought it would look good on the case so i added lines to each of the silver sections...then seal it all in with a super glossy finish...once all dry i glues my skull in the center like so

then with black and clear rhinestones in different sizes...biggest being 3mm I arranged them around the skull and spread them out some what around the case

And thats pretty much it

Heres photos of the finished case

Have I told you that I LOVE this case?...lol

but what do you think???

Phone case decorating with clay and rhinestines

I got a new phone not to long ago and so i wanted to jazz it up.I bought a cheap clear hard case off Amazon so i could decorate it.
I got my polymer clay and sculpted out an Helly Kitty head and also made some flowers too

First time doing these so i was pretty happy with how they turned out..The one thing I learned about using this clay is that your work surface should be spotless esp when working with white as EVERY little speck of dirt will show in it...so after i baked it and let it cool off completely I then went over it with some white paint to cover up the spots of dirt and dust...look alot better..then once all was dry i then glazes them all to give them shine

So then what i did next was trace my phone case on a piece of paper and figured out what kind of design i wanted to go with

sorry pic isnt clearer...took it with my camera phone that auto focuses and well it did a poor job...but you can see well enough of how my design was going to look..So once i had figured that out i got my craft glue and started to decorate my case

when i was done this is what i had

Im pretty happy with how it turned out but I did learn a lesson through all this....you can never have to many rhinestones!!..there came a point where i thought i had used up all mine,but thankfully i was able to find some more!!

so what do you think??? it might be to "busy" for some people and not for everyone but its for fun and I like it

Nail Art Foil Haul

so for those of you who dont know what nail art foil is...basicialy you you apply a thin even layer of special glue to your nail,let it dry completely (will be tacky when dry-do not touch) then cut up a piece of foil of your choice,place on your nail,smooth it out then lift it off....whatever foil that was on the glue will remain on your nail !

sooo anyways these are what i bought from dollarnailart.com/ .  pretty much everything is a $1 ...so each foil i bought which is 5ft only cost $1 each..when you buy 6 foils i think it is...you get a free glue!!  I ended up buying a whole bunch of foils and got 2 foil glues which was very cool!

Ialso bought a few other items that arent foil

but anyways here are photos of my haul


And here are all the foils and glue I got

(click on photos for a closer look )

and this is the glue

Ive never used foils before so Imsuper excited to try these out and the colors look gorgeous!!

(let me add that no order under $25 will got through- you have spend a minimum of $25 on every order)
