Blood of My Blood

I mentioned in my last post how I've been using a lot of nail wraps recently.  One of my favorite brands is Espionage Cosmetics and their nerd manicures.  The one I am currently wearing came from their Nexus Literary subscription and is called Blood of My Blood featuring a design based on Outlander.  This wrap did not win the battle, but it is available for a limited time in this bundle.

I'm Back...and Now with Bella Hoot

I know it has been a while since you heard from me (two years to be exact), but a lot has happened in those two years.  I changed jobs, and more importantly, had a baby.  With a now-toddler running around, I don't have time to do my nails like I used to, so I have been relying heavily on nail strips and wraps.  If you have never tried nail strips/wraps before, they are a great way to add great designs to your nails in just minutes, with no dry time!  There are a couple brands I have been using lately, but a brand new company is launching today and I have signed up as an affiliate.  Bella Hoot is the newest name in the nail wrap game, and they have some adorable prints at unbeatable prices.  Check out my AFFILIATE LINK HERE.  Look for some great nail pics in the weeks to come!

Midnight Snake

Inspiration: Color

Products: Rainbow Honey My Midnight Garden, Essie Sleek Stick Sneek-e

Thoughts: I needed something to go with a navy and silver dress for a special event, and these nail wraps layered over My Midnight Garden where perfect.  These went on pretty well, and definitely have staying power.

Edgy Electromagnetism

Inspiration: Edgy Electromagnetism on page 47 of the March/April 2016 issue of Nail It!

Products: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Wedding Glitters, Art Club Nail Art Duo Black, Solar Tides foil

Thoughts: Used a different foil glue this time and it worked perfectly!  I even had the exact foil the tutorial called for.  Not the biggest fan of the black border, but I think it helps keep the foil from chipping and pulling up.

Half Magic

Inspiration: Half Magic on page 44 of the March/April 2016 issue of Nail It!

Products: Julep Nicolette, Art Club Nail Art Duo Silver Glitter, It's So Easy Foil 'Em Kit

Thoughts: I think my foil glue was getting old because it was not working as well as it used to.  Also, instead of using striping tape like in the tutorial, I did a strip of silver glitter because a.) I didn't have enough silver striping tape and b.) I am horrible at applying striping tape.
