Teal Stripes & White Dots

May 18, 2012

Experimenting with more tape manicures. I also tried a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen, which I really liked. I used the white pen for the dots and white stripes. Truth be told, I only did this on my left hand since I was just playing. I didn’t have time to attempt it on my right hand as well. Anyhow, it’s certainly fun! :)

      so I couldn’t get these colros off my mind and went ahead to get them for myself! such a good call I got the Dim Sum Plum but instead of the Lucky Lucky Lavender I got Panda-monium Pink which is similar but less purple. Keep the updates coming, I love em!

    I love the colors by Butter. I really want to try them but have yet to justify the price.

    Hey just a question I painted my nails with CND Sticky base coat and China Glaze and then SecheVIt on top. they didn’t even last a full 24 hours. they like just bubble and peel off in sheets from my nail. Any suggestions I should try or have you had this trouble?

    • kristina May 18, 2012 at 3:06 pm

      Are you applying the Seche Vite while the China Glaze is still wet? If not, try that. The Seche Vite needs to soak down into the polish and then sort of meld everything together.

      Also, were your hands in water a lot? I’ve noticed that if I paint my nails and then take a long bath (love those!) my polish practically just peels off. So, I’ve started making sure that I only do that right before I’m going to take my polish off. :)

    Hi Kristina! Just a question… I just tried stamping for the first time- I got the konad stamper and special polish. When I went to transfer/stamp the image on my nail it didn’t seem to want to transfer. I kept getting a half transfer or it would transfer but bits of it would be sticking up so that I would have to flatten back on my nail with a finger. You made it look so effortless so I was wondering if I was doing something wrong. Has this happened to you; do you have any tips?? Thanks so much!!

      Things to make sure you’re doing:

      – clean your plate and stamper with pure acetone between each stamping.
      – try to work as quickly as possible

      I get the little standing up bits, too. I just smooth them down. :)

    Love this! Glad the pen works well. I picked one up but have yet to try it.
