As seen on Pinterest....

I love Pinterest. So many recipes. And mason jars. And recycled wood projects. And nails. I contribute to 2 group boards, in addition to my own little private *Nail Obsession* board. Check out "Nails and Polish" and "Expensive Nails". Fun fun stuff.

I was thinking of doing a regular or semi-regular "as seen on Pinterest" post. My own little spin on the cool stuff found online. What do you think? I will link back to the original site where possible. And link to the pin if the link I have doesn't work. Make sense? Sound good? Anyone interested? Or should I say... Pinterested?? hehee

As seen on Pinterest

I got a bigger set of dotting tools, the other day, and then I saw a dotting Pin, and thought, "Well, This is cool!"


My version in pastel. 

 Starting with a light, pretty pastel blue base coat, I followed the technique above on my accent nails... ring fingers and thumbs today. I'm kind of random about accent nails. Sometimes pointer fingers. Sometimes rings. Sometimes thumbs. Occasionally just pinkies. Or any combination of the above. Now that I list those out, I see I only avoid the middle finger. So far. *evil laugh*

So I didn't line up the dots, but staggered them. I like the original version better in that regard. I love that this is so much simpler to execute than it looks. 

Here is my thumb up close. My dots at the transition look kinda funky. Weird. 

I'm a Barbie Girl

It's been a crazy-busy week around here... 

Well, a crazy 2 weeks.

 Er, really, all month... 

Oh for crying out loud. You get the idea. 

Oh! But not naked-nails busy. Never THAT busy! 
Because that would be bad. Very very bad.  

So I have a few quick manicure ideas that I only had time to snap mediocre quick phone pics of. Great nails, terrible photos. And not always great cuticles, as I've been helping my parents with a bathroom remodel project. That would be one of the reasons I have been so busy.... hehee

Snarky Barbie
So this was a neutral pink base, a black diagonal swipe on the left tip, a silver diagonal swipe on the right tip. A nail art pen fuchsia stripe accent, and then...

I've Got Funshine... On a Cloudy Day!

It was kind of cloudy and windy earlier in the week... and my Grey-beige (Greige?) gradient fit the mood. Wintry.

Only a 3 color gradient, until I added the Naild'It Newspaper Nude. I really need a macro shot of all the pretty glitters hidden in here... Let's see. Something like..... 


There... You see? Large hexes in black, white, and yellow. Small squares in blues, pinks, golds, blacks and whites. Micro black and blue....

So much sparkly happiness in that creamy, crelly grey! This one was definitely a surprise! You can buy it from Llarowe here. Go for it! You know you want to. 

If you are still living in winter.... this polish is perfect!

But later in the week... it got warm! And we got some actual sunshine! 

I had to go with Naild'It Walking on Funshine! You can buy it at 
Mei Mei's Signatures here! You know you want to. Again.

I started this mani with a silver base. I like the Avon Suede collection. It dries fast, and looks so cool with both matte and shiny topcoats. The downside is that you really can't see how cool the matte is on camera! With my camera skills, anyway. Perhaps Andrea can do it?

Anyway: I topped 5 nails (2 on the left hand and 3 on the right, if you keep score) with some Walking on Funshine!  Many, many matte and neon glitters in a lightly tinted base.  I *pink puffy heart* love it.

Well... then... ya know... the other 5 nails looked sad and lonely. So I grabbed some of these!

Dot. Dot. Dot. Dot. 
Dotted up some lines and flowers.
Lime flowers with blue centers, and a few extra pink dots
All the dotted fingers got matte topcoat. 
I was a bit random with matte/ shiny on the glitter nails.
Because I couldn't decide which was cooler. 
Because they both were kind of amazing!

A Pot O' Gold for SIX cents!

This little guy on my right hand is
almost grown out. Lucky me!
Have you seen products for sale out there like nail tattoos,
transfers, and even the newsprint kit I saw in the mall? Tutorials and products on blogs and Pinterest had me curious! I did a lot of "window shopping" comparing techniques, results, and prices.

I like the tattoo and transfer products and the look of the newsprint transfers, as well.  Even though those are backward when you transfer them, and that tends to make me twitch.... 

But I find the selection to be somewhat limited. I kept thinking it would be cool to design my own! It turns out that you can transfer color ink from laser copiers with rubbing alcohol!

 I started thinking. And scheming. And rubbing my hands together like the evil genius in a movie...*insert evil chuckle here*

 So... would you like to design your own nail transfers? I'll walk you through the basics...

How to make your own transfers:
Pot o' Gold on my
 Big ol' Thumb!
1) Pick a theme! Superhero, Holiday, Flowers, Camo, emoticons, your Zodiac sign. Whatever floats your boat. 

2) Find some clip art! or Google some images. For print you'll use a tiny font... 7-9 pt range. my pot of gold image was about a 1/4" square. The rainbows were 3/4"x 1 1/2". Keep in mind my thumbnail is huge. You may want to go smaller. 

3) I manipulated my images in Word, because that's what I have. The first time I squished as many on there as possible. Leaving no room for holding the paper to position it. Round Two, I left margins for that reason. 

4) Check out your print settings, looking for a mirror option, a setting for iron on transfers will flip the image. If you can't do it on your own printer, no worries. Print it normally. 

5) If you have a laser printer and were able to flip the image you are good to go! Otherwise, take your page to your copy center. Ask them to reverse your print if you didn't do it. You are looking at a whopping price tag of about 6-12 cents (US). You can easily print enough images and words for several manicures on one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11" paper. For. Six. Cents. 

I found MY pot of gold!
How to transfer: 
1) Cut out your designs, leaving a small tab to hold on to for positioning. See the spacing on my lucky lucky lucky index finger and you will understand the need for a tab. 

2) Apply a base coat. I did 2 coats of a creamy white, for full opacity. Let dry completely.

3) Soak your first nail in rubbing alcohol for about 15 seconds.

4) Carefully place your tiny picture or little word. If the paper doesn't look completely wet, dab on a drop of alcohol with another finger. Press it firmly in place, being careful not to move it around. 

5) Wait about 15 seconds. Peek. See if you need to re-wet the paper and press again. 

6) Repeat on as many nails as you'd like!

7) Make sure you topcoat for durability! maybe like this?
