HaPpY BiRtHdAy!

One of the things that happens when you paint your nails a lot.... People notice. And they sometimes ask if you will paint their nails. And sometimes I do it! :D Graduations, prom, homecoming, senior pictures.... I have 3 teenagers, and that means I know a lot of teens. heehee

But that is not what happened here. Ms. Kaitlyn, my gorgeous young friend and neighbor, does her own nails. And nail art. Detailed nail art is her thing. Once in awhile, she needs help on some detail on her right hand. You know how it is when you are right handed, and get the left hand sooooooo perfect, and can't quite duplicate it with the non-dominant hand?? Frustrating! 

Anyway..... Once in awhile she calls me to help with that kind of detail. Like yesterday. When she came over with THIS fantastically beautiful, sort of botanical mani... and asked  me to mirror it. And it was TOUGH! 

So here is Kaitlyn's mani! That's the hand she did...isn't she talented? 
AND it's her birthday, AND she is 14 today! 
HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!

Hey all! I know many of you are getting SNOWED ON... or shall I say DUMPED ON!! I get spring fever this time of year, I like to pretend the green grass will pop up any time! Even though I pretty much wish for spring from December on, I still enjoy a pretty winter mani!! Light, airy, shimmer, shimmer, shimmer...
So.. with that being said I want to introduce to you 2 of my "wintery" polishes. Nude Frosty, and Snow Poke. We cant change the weather, right?!... So why not celebrate it! :)
Drum Roll Please
Nude Frosty
Nude Frosty is a white holographic polish, with a holo base, and a few larger holo silver glitters. I LOVE this polish!! Its so pretty! This color will be offered only on Etsy and will be released along with Snow Poke on March 1st

                                                                         Snow Poke
Snow Poke is a really fun polish. It has a very simple blue shimmer/somewhat holographic base! In addition there are a few other holo glitters in a variety of colors, and some matte white to add depth! BUT... my favorite part of this polish is the snow flake glitters! (they are dispersed lightly throughout)
Just a Heads up, you will need to shake this one... those snow flakes are pretty heavy and like to sink! A good shake is all you need though!

I hope you enjoyed this preview!! Stay warm out there! Oh and don't forget these will be released on March 1st on my etsy shop (they wont be carried by 3rd party distributors) in the NEW bottles with the NEW labels!!!!!
Have a wonderful day! AND be prepared because Spring has Sprung, and the Spring has Sprung swatches are on the way!!! :) <3

Playing with Gel Polish

Ever play with gel polish?  I mean really play?

Not just buy a color, "bake" it on LED is the way to go! , and be happy for a week or more... PLAY with it! How about french tips? Nail art?

Gel polish bottles are not very photogenic... and also I forgot to take pics along the way. Ha. Rookie mistake.

The lip gloss just happened to match and looked good in the photo....
I did not use lip gloss at all in the mani. 

 I'll describe as best I can:
1) Prep nails
2) Prime/ Bake That LED light again
3) 1st coat of color... Taupe, applied only to the tips/ Bake
4) 2nd coat of color... Taupe again/ Bake
5) Red gel color, applied by putting 2 dots side by side and dragging the dots together in a point to make a heart. Or a bunch of hearts. In a line. Whatever floats your boat. :D
This is an awesome little pic-tutorial I found on Pinterest... Simple, easy, quick. 

6) Final top coat/ Bake...  

And Viola!! You got an aesthetically pleasing configuration....

 Little Mermaid reference? No? Ahem. 

I usually like to change my nails frequently... almost daily. And I have a favorite technique for that. To share another day.
Sometimes I need a more durable look, that won't chip or show wear for several days. Gel is good for that. But gel has it's limitations. Fewer colors. Almost no glitter. Boring. I say play with it, jazz it up a bit... have some fun! What do you do with gel? Any thoughts? Love it? Hate it? Come on people, chat it up! :)

Lovin' This!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Our gift to you today is a look at two more new Nail D'It colors!
Let us introduce you to "Aurora's Grape Escape".

This polish is a deep purple/ grape holographic jelly. It has So. Much. Dimension! I love how the holos shift from purple to blue to silver. Pretty! So so pretty! Purple+Sparkly= my favorite!

Next up is "Bleeding Love", a fuchsia jelly with a variety of glitters in matte, holographic and metallic. This bottle has so many glitter shapes, including: hearts, bars, squares and hex of all sizes! 

Although  you won't be able to wear this on Valentine's Day, you will be able to order soon through
Llarowe- in the new pretty bottles, with the new amazing logo!

And as the song says, you can "keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love."

And here they are together:

Both colors have 2 coats for full coverage here. The first coat was dabbed on, the second coat brushed on. I finished with a top coat to smooth things out.

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  Photography note  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

This photo shoot was before we figured out some details... like how the camera picks up details we don't always notice when we (Heather) are excited to try a pretty new polish that we (Andrea) have created. Let us know what you think!  Like the "Bleeding Love" around my cuticles, because I was in such a hurry to try out the "Aurora's Grape Escape".  *wink wink* I'll work on that.

Hope you get some chocolate out of this holiday!

Old Love, New Love

If you've been a fan of Naild'It Unique polish for awhile, you may remember when "Give Hope" was released in honor of breast cancer awareness. 

This pretty pink polish is one of my many personal favorites. "Give Hope" is a mild pink shimmer holographic base with a splattering of larger silver holo glitters. 2 coats are generally enough for this polish to reach opacity. And it happens to be perfect for this Valentine french mani!

Of course, We had to add a pop of something new (well kinda, this pretty red was once called Rudolph Knows)..... So here is your sneak peek at "All-Red"! A pretty red jelly, with almost too many sizes and shapes of sparkly red  and fuschia glitters to name! 2-3 coats reach maximum impact!

You see 2 coats of each color here. To set off the color in this French tip manicure, I've added a shimmery white stripe with a nail art polish. The kind with the long skinny brush...

More new colors are planned for tomorrow! Are you as excited as we are?

Happy Broken Hearts

I started with a base of Avon Suede in Fuchsia.

 I like it because is dries quickly, has good coverage, and is pretty with it's own matte finish or with a shiny topcoat. You can see on  my index finger I applied some Nailene Artist Fx Sparkle coat.
 Have you seen this stuff? I got the whole sparkly set for my birthday last summer! 

Using my little scissors and some blue painter's tape, I made my own little templates. I kept the little hearts, and the borders because I couldn't decide which piece to use.
There's that sparkle coat on the right! Oh, and the teeny tiny hearts on the left?
 Didn't use those yet.... wink wink. 

Then I got busy with the taping and the crackling. Sally Hanson Crackle TopCoat in silver and black. My white was not very.... crackle-y. Maybe it was pouting about not being used for so long? Or perhaps I needed to shake it more.... 
I decided to go ahead and topcoat. Sparkly makes me happy! :)

You like?

So let's talk about your cuticles...

So let’s talk about your cuticles.
Fascinating, I know.

But honestly, what’s the point of having lovely, sparkly, beautifully painted nails, with cracked, ragged, rough and otherwise ugly cuticles surrounding them?

I don’t know about the winter weather where you are, but in the dry, cold area I live in my hands need extra TLC about now.

My routine cuticle care comes down to a few simple steps, and today we are starting with...

Step One: Get the dead skin out of there (Ewww, gross, I know)

So, how do I get the nasty skin off? Well, they make really sharp, really expensive tools for that.
They scare me.  
Cheaper versions tend to be dull from the beginning, or dull quickly. If they are not sharp enough, they tend to tear the skin. It’s probably not the WORST thing in the world to have a torn cuticle, but it’s pretty terrible. Particularly painful if you are like me and wash your hands about 50 times a day.

So say you have a really nice expensive pair. And you haven’t misplaced them. (Who, me?) And that your kids didn't try to use them as guinea pig nail trimmers. (Not  my kids!) But if you have them, and they are not lost, and they are nice and sharp…. it is still really easy to cut too deep. And there will be blood. And it is also painful.

So if you go there (and I usually don’t go there) ….For heaven's sake, be very careful!

What I typically do is start with  this:

 (I usually buy it at WalMart, but you can get it here)

Just put it on, rub it around, and wait. Two minutes is usually good. Then I scrape along the sides of my nails with a very cheap and easily available tool. My thumbnail.  High tech, baby. Rinse off and dry. Ta-daa! Repeat as needed. I use it about once a week.

If  you find that your cuticles need a little more work (When it’s cold or I’ve been gardening, or I’ve been a slacker and waited too long between manicures for the green stuff to do its job… ya.) then I have a little secret I'll let you in on.... I use these (Grab them wherever… Walmart, Target, Sally’s, Family Dollar). 
Yes. On. My. Cuticles. 
Everyone has these, right? 
**Public Safety Announcement**
It works better if your hands are dry. Not wet. Not damp. And especially NOT right after the green stuff. Got that?
  Dry. Skin. Only. 
Like using this: 

Have you ever seen the aftermath when someone used one of those babies on wet feet? 
No bueno.
Don't do it.
 It's like torture-by-cheese-grater! I'm pretty sure it violates the Geneva Convention.

And that's it! My next post will be on maintaining that pretty new baby-soft skin.
In the meantime, I think Andrea has some sneak  peek stuff planned. 

We are also working on the whole water-mark thingy... then you will see lots and LOTS of actual photos of our actual nails. Promise! 

Questions? Comments? Bring it on!!
