The Nail Files 4/20/12 - You get TWO designs! ;)

The Nail Files 

It has been a couple weeks since I've done this link-up, so I have two designs to share with you today. I have Easter's (which I really love) and this weeks, which was puppies. The puppies were super cute too but now it is Friday, which is official "pick off your nail polish because it's chipping and driving you a little crazy" day. lol

First Easter, Bunnies and abstract egg designs! Of course I found the bunny tutorial on you-tube, for the "eggs" with the stripes I used a pink stripper that I have and the green "egg" was all glittery (with both green glitter and a regular glitter). Afterall, you have to have at least one glittery egg on Easter! ;)

Next is this weeks design. Puppies and little paw prints. This is another you-tube copycat. One of these days I'll have to come up with something really original. But until then everyone on you-tube has got such cute ideas! ;)

There was one thing with this design that I had trouble with and that is that the white paw-prints wouldn't stay white. You can't tell in the picture but the green from the base color actually seeped through and made the paw prints a little off-white. Anyone have any tricks on how to stop that when you put white over a base color? 

Here are the tutorials so you can try these out for yourself:

  1. Aww how stinkin cute! :) I love these designs and KNOW you can come up with awesome ones on your own too. ;)

  2. Oh wow you're really great at nail art - putting mine to shame!

  3. You are so talented! Do you let the polish dry enough before doing the nail art?

    1. I thought I was letting it dry enough but maybe not. I'll try letting it dry longer before adding the white to it :) Good catch

  4. Those are adorable!!!! Love it

  5. sooo cute
    can't wait to check out the deets on the vid

  6. Thanks Ladies!! Nail art is my therapy - heck just painting my nails is therapy. lol
