Nail Art - Starting a New Trend!

Okay so a lot of you have been asking how I did my nails so here is a tutorial!
I'm not gonna lie this is pretty tricky for some and it may take you a few several tries

What you'll need
1. A cup or a bowl
2. Filtered room temperature water
3. Toothpicks
4. Tape
5. Nail polish
6. Nail polish remover
7. Q-tips
8. Scissors
9. News paper or paper towels
Lets get started!!

Start by laying out some newspaper or paper towels, this will get messy! Paint all of your fingernails one color. White is a good "canvas" to work with because the colors will come out as their true color. I used black here because I wanted a darker effect....plus I just love black!
Let your nails dry completely! Don't rush it. After your nails have dried pick the colors for your design. Next you'll want to tape off you finger. Place tape around your cuticles as closely as possible without covering your nail. This will help keep the color off of your skin and make for an easy clean up.
After you colors are selected unscrew all of the caps and get ready to work fast! Quickly drop your colors one by one forming a "bulls-eye" in your water. Remember to work quickly because the polish will dry in the water.
Take your toothpick now and drag it through the color to form your designs.
Pick the area of the design you want to use on your finger and slowly lower your taped finger into the water.
Keep your finger under the water for a few seconds and then, with your finger still under the water, use a toothpick to clean up the polish around your finger. Just twist the toothpick around till there is no polish left in the water and then lift your finger out of the water.
Your finger will look something like this. Leave the tape on for a few minutes so the polish can dry. After a few minutes use your scissors to cut off the tape. Carefully peel off the tape. Now take your q-tip, dip it in polish remover, and clean up the nail polish around your cuticles or any polish on your skin.

Let you nail art dry and apply a clear coat of polish.

Voila! You very own nail art!

This might will require patience! Lots of it! It's not a quick craft by any means you just have to keep practicing!! Have fun ya'll and leave me a comment, let me know how yours turn out!!

  8. Hi, a quick tip here to make things a bit easier, removing the need for tape and all the cleaning up around the nail, when it's dry. Spread Vaseline (petroleum jelly) wherever you don't want varnish. As with the tape, there will be varnish all over the place but, when your nails are dry, all you need to do is wipe of the Vaseline and you have perfect nails AND your fingers have had a moisturizing treat. Win-Win!

  9. You should be ready to spend considerable time for doing a thorough research about the various brands that are available in the market before choosing the right products that will produce the desired results on your finger nails. why does my nail polish bubble

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
