Nail polish

I got some e-mails from readers asking what kinds of nail polish and what nail brands I like to use.

I recently discovered (a few months ago) Sinful Colors nail polish at Walgreens. They have a beautiful line of colors with cute names, and it's $1.99 per bottle. My only problem with it is that it's a bit sheer, so you need a few coats if you like it dark.

I don't live in a big town, so I have no access to OPI, Essie (although I have a gift set that I received for Christmas), or China Glaze, but I heard they were very good brands and worth the money.

Here's a picture of part of my nail collection from sometime last month (It has expanded since then)

Thanks for reading :D I'll be (attempting) giving up nail painting for Lent, so this blog will be taking a short hiatus~


Hello! This is a blog that I am setting up to keep all of my nail art pictures. I first got into nail art about a year ago. I'm definitely not professional or anything, so a lot of my pictures and designs will be amateur-ish, but I hope you'll all grow along with me.

Now, here's a few samples of my work:

(Sorry for the blurry image) This was done for my high school's homecoming week last winter. As you can see, it's not extraordinarily done (I was rushed). I go to a private school, so I attempted to follow my school plaid onto my nails. :D

These were my nails for the homecoming dance. I used Sinful Colors Tokyo Pearl, and Sinful Colors Bali Mist, because my dress was a light purple and white. :D

My first ever nail art. Simple white with black polka dots. I used a bobby pin for the dots. :] Some of the 'compliments' I got were comparing it to a cow, and a dalmation.

Tata for now~
