Saran Wrap Nails

  1. For Saran Wrap Nails you'll need a base coat(white),and I chose two other colors.I also applied a little bit of chap stick around the nail for easier cleanup.

  4. Then peel apart gently.
  5. Apply over your nail pulling the sides of the saran wrap downwards.
  6. Pull off gently,and you'll have lots of cleanup.Viola♥Saran Wrap Nails

Fetish Swatches

So here's a polish I've never heard of "Fetish"run for cover,and of course I threw out the package to this polish before I could get the name of the shade.I love this shade,it has a bit of a golden shimmer and a little bit of a greenish tint to it.The best part is I found these at the dollar store.Who Knew?

Again I don't have the shade for this one either,however it's kinda like a deep,dark brown with specks of golden glitter.Great shine,and didn't have to apply a clear coat.One coat covered kind of weird,and not sure if I would like it,however after applying 2 coats the shade is awesome.Love it!

Nail Striping Design

  1. First start off  with a base coat.I chose Spoiled "Distant Memory".Then apply a clear coat to only the base coat.
  2. Then place your striping on as shown.I also doubled up my striping to make the stripes thicker.
  3. Then apply the top coat over the stripes.I applied 2 heavy coats making sure to cover the stripes completely.If you'd like the indents bigger apply more than 2 coats.Then gently remove stripping.Viola♥Nail Striping Design.

Three more L.A.Colors Swatches

So I went out and purchased three more L.A.colors so here they are.All of these I did not have to apply a clear coat.
 Static Electricity
This color tended to be a bit runny compared to some other shades,however it covered with 2 heavy coats.Awesome shade.

I absolutely love the shade of this one.It's kinda in between a shimmery goldish/brown with a lots of shimmer You really only need one coat with this one,however I applied two.
Love it♥

This one is an awesome light shade of green.Covers nicely in 2 coats.Three coats will cover even better,however I prefer it to be a bit sheer.Love it♥

Yellow & Crackle Animal Print

  1. Start with a base coat.I chose rue beaute' in yellow
  2. Then apply a strip of white crackle down the middle.The white doesn't show as good so black crackle would most likely have a better crackling effect.
  3. Then using your art deco nail stripper in black,make your stripes on the sides.
  4. Then I applied a tad bit orange around the stripes.
  5. Then silver glitter over the crackle.Viola♥

Wow a little too much light!

Peacock Nails

So this is my first attempt at Peacock Nails so please no laughing!This is one nail design that I'm definitely not good at.
In this pic NYC Skyline Blue
I love this shade from Wet n Wild "Caribbean Frost"Oh and I did cheat just a little.I have a feather nail stamper that I used.
I'm not sure,but I believe I need a new camera because most of my pics either come out too dark or too light and/or blurry.It's like I snapped them in a cave or my closet.If anybody could let me know what type of camera they use or what settings are the best please comment.Thanks ;-] and by the way I use a Kodak AF 14 mega pixels.
Here's a different version I tried and failed miserably 
I also added a little bit of green because I thought it was just too plain.
and this one I liked the best
