Dreamcatcher Nails

I finally got myself some acrylic paints for nail art.  I wanted to be able to paint thinner lines because nail polish can get so goopy and it’s hard to control at times. For my first acrylic paintscapade I went for black dreamcatchers and feathers.  Do you love dreamcatchers as much as me?  I have them hanging in my car, over my bed, in the guest room, pretty much anywhere I can get away with.

ILNP Indie Go Swatch

ILNP Indie Go Swatch

I Love Nail Polish had a sale last month and I picked up a few soon-to-be discontinued holos on clearance. Here’s a swatch of two coats of Indie Go. It’s a beautiful merging of blue and purple and I can definitely see me wanting to wear this one a lot. No staining either. What’s not to love about this indie?

Nailtiques Review – with before and after pics

I just love doing ten day reviews of nail strengtheners! I have already done OPI Nail Envy, Duri Rejuvacote, and today I’m showing you Nailtiques #2.  Do not confuse Nailtiques with Nailtek! Nailtek is a totally different product which does not work well for me at all!  But Nailtiques has been on my list of fave strengtheners for a few yrs now.  I ran out of it a while ago and my nail health went…
