Ooh La La (Lacquers!)

13 Jul

Next Friday I have my first show as a vendor…I am selling some of my hand made nail lacquer that I make and sell online.  (The name of the line is LaLa Lacquers and is found on http://etsy.com/shop/LaLaLacquers  ) . I managed to get in the “lab” this week and produce a good amount of polishes to bring along.  Here are some (not so great) photos of a few of the color samples, all of which will be made available for sale on Etsy:

 

 

Studded Nails

29 May

Here’s a trend that I absolutely love and adds an extra oomph to any set of nails…Studs!

You can find them in beauty stores, nail salons, drug stores, on line, and many other places.  They are inexpensive and are easily applied with nail art glue.

These studded nails caught my eye:

What do you think? Would you try these out?

 

A different design for each nail…

I love variety when it comes to nail art…especially because I get bored quickly and I am constantly changing my nail polish designs!  I love the idea of creating a different mini work of art on each individual nail, yet keeping a theme that ties them all together and keeps it cohesive.  It’s pretty simple to do…just pick a theme and go from there…make sure to use similar colors/add-ons on each nail ( you don’t want to mix a neon green with a matte oxblood color, ick!)

What do you think of this? Pink and Black are my favorite colors 😉

I saw this one and thought it was cool too:

Organizing your nail polish!

30 Apr

I am a nail polish junkie.  In case you didn’t already know.

That said, I have a larger collection of nail polish than most nail salons…and am always looking for new ways to contain and organize my stash.  Nail polish racks can be expensive sometimes, so I’ve found a bunch of different inexpensive ways to store polish, whether you have a few bottles or a complete store full…

Hanging plastic organizers

Moon Mani

14 Apr

So I’ve noticed a nail trend that caught my eye and has spread pretty quickly: the moon mani.  It’s actually been around for a while but I think it’s making a comeback with a few new twists.  These are a couple that I thought were really cool:

Dreaming of Summer! Is it here yet?

Playing around with ombré nail designs..I figured maybe a Summer sunset? Unfortunately my black nail polish was a little gooey and kinda messed up the design…but you get the idea. Might be cool a second time around! The great part is I used scented nail polish so my nails smell of oranges and lemons..yummy!
