You guys won’t hear from me this weekend SORRY but I will be having fun on a mini vacation have a great weekend!
If you haven’t noticed that’s really close to my page name! I played World of Warcraft for YEARS…gave it up earlier this year. Went cold turkey on it – I know those that don’t game don’t fully understand but those that do…well you totally get it. Since then I’ve been picking up hobbies – making jewelry, lots of photo shopping – both of which I still do but this is the one that’s really just taking over. Not that it’s a bad thing I really enjoy doing my nails and ideas on things to do.
I did a couple of nails on wow themes. I have both the alliance and horde flags – horde looks better than the alliance but maybe because that’s what I prefer. I also have me two murloc’s one is like the shirt’s that are sold for kids, real cute! So attached are the pictures – and I have NO idea how to explain how I did them I should try to make a video on it. That’s another battle for another day.
So did I…and I did NOT like it. I’ve worked hard on not breaking them and keeping them all the same shape and length. Then BAM I tore one -_- not happy.
I am happy that I found a way to “fix” it and still keep the length.
To fix this I used super glue and a tea bag. I cut off a piece of the tea bag (just one ply) to cover the tear. I put some glue on the tear just to “hold” it. Before the glue dried I put the part of the tea bag over the glue. I used tweezers to get it there and on and an orange stick to push the tea bag down so there were no air pockets. Be quick on that step or you’ll glue your tweezers or orange stick to your nail – I don’t think you want to do that.
Once the glue dried I used a fine emery board to buff it smooth so that it wasn’t to noticeable under nail polish. This fixed my nail and now I don’t have to cut them all off. Hope this fix works for you too!
Soooo what looks like an easy process by watching others do it on youtube – not so much…
I love the looks you can get from doing it, but if you are easily frustrated (or sitting under a fan or vent…) don’t try this one! However – if you like a challenge give this one a go!!
This is much messier than I thought it would be – even with taping off my fingers. It took me literally all afternoon just to do my 10 finger tips. I would drip my nail polish in the water and get me about four drips (two of each color) before my colors would set. Can’t swirl if your colors set. Took me four or five times of this happening before I realized the dang AC was on and blowing right on my bowl…Yup making sure it dried right up before I could swirl things around. If your water’s to cold that will happen to you too.
After taking a two-hour break I went at it again – this time with better success. I made sure the fan was off and the AC. I had all new patience! I believe that’s what turned the tide for me, a small break got me going anew. Only took about an hour to finish my last 7 nails – where it took that long or longer to do my first 3 nails. Below are some pictures of during and after. Was a lot of fun and I’m going to do it again – just not yet I really enjoy the way these turned out!
****Coming soon World of Warcraft Nails!!****
All taped up and base coat ready.
All finished with a glittery coat and some stars for embellishment.
So looking at my toes – they were all chipped off and neglected. I SO need a pedicure but until then a pretty new polish will work (especially since it’s winter and my feet are almost always in socks for the next few months).
Anyway – my base coat is Blew You Away with some Time Off stripes. I thought they were bright and fun. Enjoy!
So I woke up this morning and my black was really chipped, on not one but TWO nails… So I knew it was time for a new paint job. I wanted to get pictures up of my candy corn nails and decided what a better time than NOW to do them. So here is my version of candy corn nails.
I use a sponge so my lines aren’t crisp and kind of blend between each level – like real candy corn Enjoy – if you have any questions feel free to ask!
Fun nail designs below.
First Vegas Style - Bright pink base color with black “fanning”. My fanning has silver accents and glow in the dark.
These toes are really easy to do. I used a nail art pen (can get from Walgreens/CVS and probably Wal-Mart too) for the pink. If you try it – you’ll have to go over the pink a couple of times to get it dark enough to show.
