Rainbow Rose DIY Decal

0 comments
Today I did a simple rainbow rose over my fuse gelnamel manicure. I also added one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust under the rose. :) I did the rose as a DIY decal, where you use the plastic bag method of creating your own decal HOWEVER I used a stamper, the ones u use in stamping nail art. I find that the surface of the stamper makes it much easier to remove the decal from it than the bag, so less chances in you ripping your decal + the added bonus that you dont have to wait over night for it to be completely dry to pull it off. I waited maybe 20 minutes to remove my decal from the stamper with no issues. I sealed it all in with Seche Vite! My fuse gelnamel manicure is holding up really nicely by the way. I hope yall enjoy this design & have a great day.

SENSATIONAIL Gelnamel Fuse Kit

0 comments
 ok guys, for todays post I wanted to share these two products with you. I bought the sensationail gel strengthener base coat for my nails because I removed my gel overlay & theyre a bit thin & weak (lol) so I wanted to try this product & see how well it will work. I also bought the fuse gelnamel starter kit bc I needed the light mostly but I was curious about the product as well. I am uploading a video right now that will show you how to use these products & I will probably post it here tomorrow. I was very pleased with this product & I hope it holds up really well! It was very easy to use, & the easy to follow instructions. When you use the fuse kit you dont use a base coat but bc I bought the base coat specifically to strengthen my nails I did apply it under the gelnamel. I will be uploading an update video later this week to show how well it all help up. 
How to apply:
1. push back cuticles & LIGHTLY buff the nail.
2. Cleanse the nail to remove debris & natural oils.
3. apply a thin coat of base coat (or color) always cap your ends and cure for 30 seconds in the LED lamp. (this one automatically turns off) 
4. I applied two thin coats of gelnamel, curing for 30 seconds in between each coat.
5. then when youre finished cleanse the nail to remove the sticky inhibition layer.
& Make sure to add cuticle oil to rehydrate them!! mine are damaged so please ignore them in the following pictures! :)
hope yall enjoy this post have a great day.

ModCloth Nail Klub & Dresses Challenge

0 comments
Hey guys, I was contacted by Amy from ModCloth to join in their Nail Klub & Dresses Challenge. She sent me a link to a post they did giving examples of what they were looking for, you can find that post here & this was one of their examples:
So I took some time and looked through ALL of their dresses and finally found my favorite one! its this really adorable mint colored dress perfect for summer. In my design I used dots but on the dress theyre actually tiny diamonds but I wanted to make the design simple so that just about any one could recreate it! I started off with two coats of Wet n Wild I Need A Refresh-Mint & used Sally Hansen White On to make the big dots and then went in with a black to make the smaller dots. Then if you wanted to add something extra you could always do the collar like I did, which I love. I really hope yall enjoy my dress recreation & check out their website here, they have some really cute dresses! Im sure you could find one that you like :D

BPS Review #27: Display Practice Nails

0 comments
Hey guys, I have a review today for yall on a great product for beginners from Born Pretty Store, these practice nails. You can find them here & dont forget to use my coupon code HEL91 for 10% off :) I think these are great for beginners or even some one who works at a salon because you can practice on them easily or you can do some designs on them and post them up in your salon so your clients can see what kind of designs they can choose from. You can also swatch your polishes on these which is another nice thing as well for yourself or clients. The nails surround this little flower design so it makes it really cute to put up in a salon. I did a simple little butterfly wing to show you me using it (video up soon) its really easy to hold & use, much easier that a little single fake nail. It comes in a pack of 10 with 12 nails on each display, 120 designs is a good bit to start off with for your clients to browse through lol I hope yall enjoy this review & have a great day :D

Disney Tag Team Mani: Cinderella

0 comments
Hey guys, as you can see from the title todays Disney Tag Team Mani revolves around Cinderella, @pursuingpolishedperfection did Jaques & Gus, the cute mice that help "Cinderelly" & I did Lucifer, the evil step mothers cat. Im loving how our designs are coming out, hers are soo adorable :D I started mine with a black base that has silver glitter in it from LA Colors on four fingers, and then used Sally Hansen Pumping Iron to do a reverse french tip & added little lines on the side to mimic his fur on his chest. Then used Color Mates Groovy Green on the ring finger because he has green eyes & used my black & silver for him as well to make him a pretty kitty lol I really hope yall are enjoyin this tag team heroes vs villians :D have a great day.
