NAIL ART TUTORIAL: HOLIDAY CONFETTI

HOLIDAY3

We are slowly starting to ease into the holiday spirit & we didn’t want to bombard you with reindeer & snowflakes (…just yet). Today we took a simple nail art design and gave it a bit of a holiday feel. For this nail art tutorial, we used American Apparel nail lacquer, it’s thick, creamy formula … Continue reading

NAIL ART TUTORIAL: DOWN BY THE BAY

DBTB4

…where the watermelons grow. Even though it’s almost November, the weather here has been all over the place & we couldn’t help but take advantage and squeeze out one more summery nail art tutorial. Fruit nails are one of our favourites, and can really be worn year round but most gravitate towards darker clothes for the colder … Continue reading

NAIL ART TUTORIAL: WITH A CHERRY ON TOP!

WACOT4

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice-cream…nails! There are different variations of ice-cream nails, but we like to stick to what tastes best – chocolate sundaes. This rarely happens, but all 3 polishes used are from OPI’s Texas Collection – the 3 colours look so great together, we are trying to come up with another … Continue reading

NAIL ART TUTORIAL: A CUT ABOVE

CUTABOVE5

Pretty in pink,…or lavender in this case. The “lazer manicure” is good for the person trying to do something a little different looking with their nails, so we gave it a try and found a way to add glitter (of course). The technique to this nail art is fairly easy, the only drawback is the time it takes – because … Continue reading

NAIL ART TUTORIAL: SEEING SPOTS

spots4

There are so many different ways to do leopard print nails, but we only like one way best - BRIGHT! Leopard print is a classic nail art design, it surfaces time after time and we never get bored with seeing it. It’s all about the colours combined with the thick black eye-catching pattern.  We love Essie nail polish … Continue reading

NAIL ART TUTORIAL: POLKA-DOT PERIDOT

PERIDOT4

Almost all Chanel nail polishes become the ‘must-have’ nail polishes of the season. We’ve found ourselves searching different cities and different department stores for their latest it colour (ie. Jade, Perplex, Riva, Mimosa, etc) Chanel’s Peridot is a creamy gold/green multichrome with hints of blue, teal and deep purple. The polish was a great consistency, it covered … Continue reading

NAIL ART TUTORIAL: WHAT A STUD

STUD4

On a recent trip to Sally’s we found nail sprinkles aka. nail studs, cue music  ‘All You Need is Love’, why haven’t we seen these before? we LOVE studs. If you follow any form of fashion, you’ll understand why, but this picture sort of sums it up. Add studs to anything wearable & it instantly goes from plain … Continue reading

NAIL ART TUTORIAL: BIRDS OF A FEATHER

BIRDS4f

Our attraction to feathers is getting a little out of hand – feather earrings, feathered vest, feather hair extensions, it’s not too surprising they would end up on our nails. You can find bagged feathers anywhere from the Dollar Store to the black hole of craft stores aka. Micheal’s (for real, if we get out … Continue reading

NAIL ART TUTORIAL: CROSS POLISH-NATION

CROSS3

Don’t you wish you were one of those people who could fly through the morning crossword puzzle? We try and try, but we can never fully complete one (even when we cheat a little). We wanted to create our own version of the newspaper nail (which has been floating around the internet) using crossword puzzles. Instead of using a white base, … Continue reading

NAIL ART TUTORIAL: ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD

GOLDGLITTER5

SO MUCH glitter - almost every single brand of nail polish has glitter in their current line up. Our favourite right now is OPI’s Muppet Collection – filled with big hexagonal glitter (our weakness) & bright eye-catching colours, they are a perfect way to dress up any boring mani. Alexa Chung tweeted these green glitter ombres & we figured with all this glitter … Continue reading
