Sometimes my clients really surprise me with the ideas they come up with. I have to say it's my clients ideas that turn out to be some of the funnest and cutest nails! I couldn't keep up the creativity without all of you so thanks! This time I put the dots down into the pink and then added flowers on the ring fingers. The colored acrylic is called "flamingo"

This is black and white stripe ribbon. It's sooo easy to do. The hardest part about using ribbon on nails is simply finding ribbon that is small enough. If anyone out there finds some fabulous good quality tiny ribbon please let me know! Click on comment at the bottom of this blog to leave me a message. Thanks!

Fourth of July & Summer fun!

I went to a nail art class tonight and got some more inspiration for nail art. I hope to put what I learned to use and post some pictures that are different than what I've done before so check my blog in the next week or so....Oh yeah and don't forget to click on the Older Posts link at the bottom of this page to view several pages of my nail art.

More fourth of July nails!

These are little light green mylar flowers with yellow polka dots added. They are so holographic and bright that I had a hard time getting my camara to focus on them.

These nails are done with opi soak off gel. It is a brand new product made by opi. It is a gel nail polish that is cured under a uv light. It lasts for 2-3 weeks with no chipping! It is an amazing product. You can purchase the matching nail polish if any touch ups are needed between appointments.

These are some super fun nails that I did but the picture didn't turn out that great. The ring fingers have real dried flowers in pink and yellow that I overlapped. The pink and yellow dots are from the cina pro dots and rings kit.
