Nail Art and Pedicure Thread :)

Recommended Posts

I think it would be safe to say that many here are like me and like having nail art and pedicures done. Since it's summer time, let's show them off! Here's a recent one of mine. :)

hehe...it's fun, and you seem to be really good at it. :) I love that second picture, too. The colors are really pretty. How'd you do the little flowers?

I might re-do my toes later, since this blue is almost a week old. Any color suggestions? I'll post the result later.

Here are my finger nails right now. I was playing around with some glitter on my index finger. lol :D

Wow, Haley! Those are great! I especially like the 4th of July, Sunset, and watermelon ones! You must have steady hands. :)

Do you do designs on your toes too?

Thanks haha :P

Umm, not much simply because my last three toenails are really tiny, so it looks strange with just 2 designs then big globs of paint on the rest.

I'm looking at getting a nail tech degree through a 6 month program. That will be fairly cheap and will sustain me a job through school for my Child Life Study degree.

Okay, I redid my toes today. Did a nice red color. :)

Here they are before removing the blue:

Thought I'd put them up against the sun. :D

That's so awesome! I could probably learn a thing or two from you. :)

I'm going to make a water marble tutorial for my blog. As soon as it's up there, I'll post it here. It'll probably be a day or 2 though.

Love your designs.

I haven't tried water marbling, but it looks farrrrrrr to complicated for me.

I did a ombre mani for the first time a few weeks ago, so I might try that.

Im giving my nails a bit of a rest because they've gone a bit yellow from doing them without a base coat once :(

I don't know if you can find this where you are, but I have this AMAZING stuff that keeps your nails from turning yellow. It's a base coat, but it protects after you take it off. I'll post a picture in a few minutes. I have 2 more nail art pictures coming as soon as I do my nails :)

You can do your toes and post. With the designs you were able to do on your finger nails, I think you'd be able to do some amazing art on your toenails! :)
