Young Nails Caption Art Screens–The Escape Collection

I picked up the Young Nails Caption Conversion Kit with Caption Art Screens at the Beauty supply store the other day and LOVE them!

My kit included The Escape Artist Collection Art Screens and here are all the patterns that come with these plates.

Thanks to polished_by_christina on Instagram for putting this swatch sample together!

The kit also comes with a squishy stamper and scraping card. The Young Nails stamper is amazing and transfers almost perfectly! I’ve been using Caption Polish for stamping and love the black, white, gold, pink, …

Christmas Nail Art with Gel Polish

My friend Trish came in to get her nails done yesterday and told me just to do something “Christmasy”. Her only stipulation was she wanted gel polish, so here is Trish’s gel polish Christmas nail art mani. It’s kind of eclectic but I think it turned out cute!

We started with a red, white, green, and silver base…

I used Gelish All Tied Up With A Bow, Gelish Just What I Wanted, OPI GelColor Alpine Snow, and Gelish Little Miss Sparkle. I knew I wanted to do a peppermint candy nail but …

Sculpted Acrylic Nails

I began forming Katie’s nail beds out with a short coffin shaped sculpted acrylic nail with Creative Nail Design Retention Acrylic. I need to get better at applying my forms and working with a dryer bead…but I love sculpting more so than using tips these days. Tips take so long to glue on and then you have to go back and file and shape and it’s just so messy and takes so much longer than simply attaching a form and applying the acrylic right away! It takes …

Christmas Nail Art! And a recap of my first week back to work!

Oh my goodness do I love Christmas nails! I’m sad I didn’t go back to work sooner just so I could do more Christmas nail art. I keep debating about ordering some cute Christmas art supplies but by the time it gets here I feel like Christmas is going to be over. πŸ™ Thank goodness for Amazon Prime right!?!?

50 Shades of Grey Nails and Nailart

Yes, I’ve read the books. I’m not ashamed. I liked them too! By the third one I was skipping past all the naughty parts because I reached a point where I was more interested in the story, which didn’t reel me in like a really well written book does but I thought it was entertaining! And I think it would be fun to do a themed mani so I put together a few ideas for you…

I love this collection from OPI–a few grey’s, a sparkly grey, and of course a …

Orly GelFX Liquid Vinyl with Edgy Fall Nailart

I popped into Sally Beauty the other day while my son and niece were running around the Halloween store next door and was DELIGHTED to find they are now selling Orly GelFX! I’ve been wanting to try this product forever but just hadn’t gotten around to ordering any AND the price is amazing–$8.00ish with a PROCard!

Just a little info, Sally seems to carry the largest selection of gel polish out of all the beauty suppliers in town and has the largest nail art section too. I saw China Glaze Gelaze, …

5 Pro Tips For Easy Nail Art

I went in to Paul Mitchell the School for a pedicure Thursday night…a MUCH needed pedicure…and got to visit with my friend Ashley. It was soooo much fun! I could talk to her for hours! πŸ™‚ Ashley’s attending the full Cosmetology Program so when she is graduated she will be licensed in hair, nails, and skin. It’s a long road, especially for a mom with three kids, but I’m really excited for her and know she will be amazing!

Ashley loves doing nails and she’s really good at it. The problem …
