the nail files

Since I fell off the radar for a little bit, I have some great nail art that I did while I was MIA from blogland. Unfortunately, I don't have the polish names, but I do have photos! I tried 3 different techniques that I have never tried before, so they were definitely challenging, but they ended up being some of my favorites.

watercolor // This nail art if pretty fool proof. You choose a few different colors, blob them in random spots on your nail, and then use a brush dipped in nail polish remover to mix them together. Viola!

flower stippling// Ahh this one requires patience. All it requires is a few colors, a dotting tool, and a whole lotta time to make dots. Mr. Candiipants did it better than me.

water marble// this one is one of my favorite of all times, but it was very messy and time consuming. Everything has to be just right for it to come out. For this technique colors are dropped into a cup of water, swirled in a design to your liking and then sprayed with some type of mist that contains alcohol-perfume, antibacterial spray, etc. and then the nail is dipped
