Kiss Nail Dress Stickers

Hello beautiful ladies! Awhile back I reviewed these stickers and I loved them. Kiss was kind enough to send me another box of these! I really do love these stickers and they are way easier than the Sally Hansen Salon Effects.

Funky Fingers: Pixy Dust

Hello everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! For today's post I have another swatch of a polish I picked up at Five Below. This polish is so hard to describe so I'll try my best.

Pixy Dust is a sheer green jelly base PACKED with very small "foil flakies" (if that makes sense) that change from green, turquoise, gold, and silver. The formula is thin but very easy to work with. Below is 2 coats (no topcoat).

These picture really don't do this polish justice. I hate when that happens because this polish is so pretty in person. I rubbed some polish on my finger so you guys can see what I'm talking about when I say foil flakies. I tried my best to show you the different colors but it wouldn't show up on the pictures.

Rainbow Gradient

Hey everyone! For today, I chose to do an animal print with a rainbow gradient! I'm not sure whether I like it, i feel like the pink/orange gradient doesn't go well with the other colors.

I'm really liking gradients right now! They are super easy and i love using as many colors as I can in a mani! Enjoy!

Funky Fingers: Taffy Town

Hey lovely ladies! I have a gorgeous polish to share with you all today! I was at Five Below and picked up 3 beautiful polishes since they were 3 for $5. I would have picked up a lot more but my mom was there and gave me a "you better not buy anymore" stare lol.

The first polish is by a brand called Funky Fingers. Taffy Town is a lovely neon coral with gold shimmer. It is opaque in 3 coats and dries matte. I am in LOVE with this polish. It is soooo perfect for summer and will definitely be going on my toes!

*I will have the other 2 polishes swatched in a couple of days!

Tattoo Mani Tutorial

Hey lovely ladies! A couple days ago I did a tattoo mani! Some of you requested a tutorial so here it is! Enjoy!

*I hope you all decide to try this!

1. Find some temporary tattoos that are small enough to fit your nails. I got mine in the clearance isle at Wal-Mart for $1.

2. Paint your nails with 2 coats of a white polish. Let those completely dry. (You can try using a different base color but I like white better because it hides  the clear/white edges that tattoos have)

3. While waiting for you nails to dry, get some cotton pads and a glass of cold or room temperate water

4. Select 5 tattoos and cut them so they fit your nails. Next, remove the plastic cover on them and press the tattoo onto your nail. It's best to work on one finger at a time.

5. Next, moisten the cotton pad with water and press it onto your nail. Hold the cotton pad on your nail for 45 seconds making sure not to move a lot. Remove the cotton pad and the tattoo should have transferred onto your nail. Remove excess tattoo on your cuticle using some nail polish remover.

6. Let the tattoos completely dry on your nails and apply  a top coat!

My New Blog: A Beauty Addict's Diary

Hey everyone! So a week or so ago I had a contest to change my blog and everyone agreed that Lydia's entry was an excellent name! However, I wanted this blog to be mostly about nails. So I decided to make a separate blog about beauty and health!

Feel free to check out my new blog: A Beauty Addict's Diary

*To see what's to come on that blog: Coming Soon 

A special thanks to Lydia for her suggestion! I love it :)
