Easy Nail art using Water colors

I know this technique has been done before by others,however this is my first time using water colors on my nails,and I think it came out pretty cute
  • First I started with the basic white nail
  • Then I purchased a water color palette.You can find these right in the craft section,or even in the Dollar Tree.
  • You'll have to place a few drops of water onto the colors you choose.The colors will be darker if you let the water dry up a little.I chose Black,Purple & Brown
  • Then using a cue tip or a small nail brush place small dabs of paint in any random place.I found it easier to use a cue tip due to the fact it will hold the paint better.
  • Repeat on every nail.
  • Let it dry completely and apply a clear top coat.Viola♥Water color Nails

L.A Girl Magnetic Nail Polish Review

So this is my first ever "Magnetic Polish" use,and I can say I really like it!
"Magnetic Force"almost like a charcoal grey
 I'm not a big fan of the magnet that comes inserted into the top of the polish.As you can see the magnet is fairly small,about the size of a dime which makes it a little difficult to hover over the nail.
 This shows what design it will create on your nail if held in the shown direction,however I didn't realize this until after I was done.

After trying several times to get it to work I found it worked best if you set the edge of the magnet onto the top of your cuticle at the back of your nail and slowly lower it to your nail.,and hold in place for about 15-20 seconds.

The downside is that you need a fairly steady hands...brain surgeon. steady.So if you've loaded up on caffeine ,and your hands are jittery then don't attempt because you will touch the magnet to your nail.Therefore having to start all over.
....End Result....
not too bad for my first time.
Basically I moved the magnet around my nail till I got the desired affect.

 I also applied random spots of polish towards the tip of my nails and held the magnet there again.
 Although it didn't come out perfectly I still loved it!
