Hi lovelies, I have some Avon Nail Wraps to show you today.
As an Avon rep I get to try some of the items in a demo/selling capacity, so I got to try out the nail wraps a little early! I am certain I used the same type of thing from the Avon years ago and found them quite good then.
These are the Bows for You wraps. I found some nails wraps easier to apply than others; some seemed very fiddly to place on my nail, while others were perfect to place. The first one I did was my thumb and there are lots of creases at the tip due to my rubbish first attempt! My middle finger is a little off centre too!
I found the filing tricky at first because I filed the edge of my nail directly and found that I was filing the nail wrap away and you could see my nail tip! So I found I needed to file beneath the nail tip to just file the wrap away.
I love the fact that you put them on, and can get on with anything because there is no drying time. I also love that you can have instant nail art with no fiddly tools and no clean up. I wonder how long they will last….
Hello fellow nailoholics! I finally got around to trying the 3D flowers that I purchased from Born Pretty Store.
I chose to use one of my teal Nails Inc. polishes as my background. I used my nail art pens to draw a blossom design on my thumb and stuck my 3D flower on using clear nail polish.
I realise now that thinking clear polish would be enough to stick the flower to my nail was a big mistake! I picked up some papers at work today and a sheet slid between my flower and the nail and the 3D flower came clean off :( I have now invested in brush on nail glue (why I never had any in the first place is a mystery!) so I will post a new image of the next 3D experiment soon!
On another naily note, I did a safari manicure on my friend Sarah too.
I used Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in purple pulse for my base colour. I then put some random coloured splotches in the corner of my nail with silver, pink and white. Then I used the black to outline each colour.
I think a lighter base would have been better, the leopard print would have shown up better, but I love this!
Hi lovelies! As you can imagine, I have been dying to try out my nail goodies and I couldn’t wait to try my new Barry M nail art pens, courtesy of my lovely friend Sarah. I had read reviews about the brilliant ‘nib’ like applicator and how simple they were to use. I Googled some designs and found inspiration from Brit Nails Barry M Nail Art Pen review. I loved the jewel mostly and wanted to incorporate that into my mani. I also loved the animal print and wanted to see how easy the pens were to use by trying a few designs out.
This is what I came up with:
I started out with a Rimmel 60 second polish Shocker, and waited for it to dry completely. A coat of Sally Hansen’s insta-dri came in handy. When my polish was dry, I set to work drawing my designs. The pens are very simple to use and the design did not ‘drag’ when I had to colour over certain parts again. I added a glitter tip/gradient to my index and ring finger as this is the colour I recently had on my toes and I loved this as a gradient. I topped my designs off with a lovely shiny coat of Seche.
I love these pens, I’m itching to try even more designs out already!
