KK Nails: How To Make Your Own Nail Polish Rings!

Aaaaaaaaah! I haven't blogged in almost 2 weeks! D: Sorry.... life gets super busy sometimes... :'(
But.. Today I'm gonna show you have to make your own nail polish rings!

What you're gonna need are accent gems; I got these from Dollar Tree for a dollar a bag. They come in different sizes and different colors.
 And you're also gonna need some ring bases. You can get these from Hobby Lobby; I'm not sure what the price is though... :(
 First, paint your design on the gem with polish. Then take a really strong glue, like Super Glue, and dab some under the gem.
 Then place the ring's base on the center of the gem and let it dry for a few minutes.
 Now you have your own nail polish ring!
 Now I'm gonna share some of my designs. These are crackle and double crackle designs. (Double crackle is when you use two different crackle polishes on your design).
 And here's some flakies and glitters.
 Now some close-ups of my favorite ones!

Here is a flakie design. I used Finger Paints-Twisted and Wet N Wild- Black Creme. This design is suuuper simple to do!
 Doesn't this design look like a cupcake?!? I used several different craft glitters and placed them on with tweezers. Then I finished with a white background.

 Here's a color-shifting design. I love this one! The pictures are kindof blurry so that it could show more of the different colors. :)
 Thanks for reading!
Don't forget to join my Jamberry Nails giveaway here. It ends 02/28/12.

Jamberry Nails Giveway and Review! **GIVEAWAY OVER**

Hello Everyone! Today I have a very exciting review of Jamberry Nails: Nail Shields!

Jamberry Nails are nail art shields that are SUPER easy to put on! They are high quality and do not chip! They are super glossy and shiny and last for up to 2 weeks.
The awesome Jamberry Nails conslutant, T.J, generously sent me the "Color Swirl" nail shields to review. Jamberry nail shields apply with heat and pressure; so you have to use a hair-dryer to put these on.
To view a video on how to apply these, click here.
You do not have to apply base coat or topcoat with these but you can seal the free edge with nail glue to add some extra protection. This is a very easy and quick way to get some great nail art on your nails.
They cost $15 per sheet but the sheet can do 2-3 applications.
Look at how awesome this is?!?!
Pro's:
Quick and easy nail art.

High shine. It looks like there's already topcoat on them!

Last up to 2 weeks on fingers and 6 weeks on toes.

Do not chip like regular nail polish.

Con's:
I had a little, hard time finding the perfect fit for my nails; my fingers are quite small, so none of the shields fitted my pinky finger. I had to cut one of the shields with scissors to fit my pinky finger just right, but cutting the shields is definitely worth the work!

The shields started lifting a little on the second day of wear but that's probably because I didn't put enough heat and pressure but nail glue sealed at the edge will solve this problem.

Right now, Jamberry Nails is having a special offer, buy 3 and 1 free!
You can order your own set of nail shields here. When you're at the checkout, click on the KK Nails Party.

After reading this review, you probably would like a set of nail shields.... Well, today's your lucky day! You have a chance to win YOUR CHOICE of Jamberry Nail Shields!

Online Nail Bar Stamping Plate Review

Hello Everyone! Today I was kindly asked to do a review of one of Online Nail Bar's stamping plates!
They sent me plate m10 which has cute little creatures (I'm not sure what to call them :P), little pawprints, and a flower image.
 I used Wet N Wild Black Creme for the stamping polish and I stamped over one of my frankens.
Here's the plate.
 Overall, the plate is great! The images are nicely scraped in so there's no problem with picking up the image. I have to admit that I'm not the world's best stamper, so the fact that I did a decent job is pretty awesome!
 I definitely recommend these plates! If you'd like to order plates order here. Online Nail Bar also has crackle polish, nail art stickers, rhinestones, and much more!
These plates are being sold for £10 for 10 plates! What a deal! Order now, here.
Thank you for reading my review!
*The products in these post were sent to me for review for my honest opinions*

Robbee Polish: Holo Topcoat

Yay! I'm finally posting again! I've been making some holo topcoat!
If you don't know what holo topcoat is... Holo Topcoat is is a clear base with rainbow holographic particles (I used Spectraflair for the holo powder). This holographic glitter can be seen in direct light the best and you can definitely see maximum holo power in the sun!
 And I am also now selling this polish. You can find how to buy Holo Topcoat on one of my pages at the top of my blog labeled "Robbee Polishes".
 And now I will spam you with holo pictures!

Julep- Leah

Hello Everyone! Today I have a swatch of my first Julep polish.... Leah!
 Leah is a grass green with a hint of shimmer.

I'm sorry about the color accuracy; My camera does NOT like taking pictures of greens. Leah is more of a neon green than in these pictures.
I don't know if I got a bad bottle but I wasn't all that impressed by the application..... Leah is probably a sheer-jelly-creme. Leah took 2-3 coats for opacity and then the polish got a little gloopy on my ring finger. D:
 Leah is a very unique color, I don't think I have one like it in my collection! This color reminds me of green frogs and green peas.
The best way to apply this color is to start with a thin coat, wait for it to dry. Then put your second coat.
Overall, I think Leah is a really pretty color but you might need some patience in applying it.

Watch out for some Julep swatches. ;)
