okay...here it goes! Please feel free to add your own and swatches, it's really hard to find photos of polish on brown hands and in the nail blog community we are such a small population.

Um yeah, I already stalk this one right here honey!!!  HeartHeartHeartHeart

I feel so guilty for not taking photos when I wear different colors people are stalking.  I have to get my nails right and then maybe I won't be so lazy.   

I love what you did with the white on that last one.   White can look crazy but with the right design it is stunning like this!

More!!LOL

I can't do round and/or pointy.  Its like straight legged pants to me.  Everything I did/wore when I was in my twenties.   I do love seeing  y'all re-rock our old styles though.   Just not for me like been there wrote a song about itLOL

I used to hate stamping...a lot. it took forever and a day, the images wouldn't transfer...then I found this!



it's squishy and...everything! it picks up images, it's big so covers all of your nail, because it's so soft it wraps around your nail so you don't have to roll it, and because it's soft you don't need to wait forever for your polish to dry so you can stamp.

That stamper right there is the TRUTH!!!   I have two and I found a light purple one that I'm stashing because I don't want my sister to find it when she comes over to paint her nailsLOL

Yes it literally took stamping from "pain in the ass" to AWESOME.

I love these. Rumor has it you can do water marble with a stamper (dip in the stamper instead of nail) and stamp it on. I haven't tried yet though.

I saw that Slay and I can't understand it for some reason.  Like a mental block.  But apparently you can actually draw on the stamper and it will still transfer.  Maybe with that squishy stamper I believe it.   I saw a girl on Youtube transfer a stamp onto saran wrap, add a bunch of colors and press it on.  The things people come up with!  It was pretty.

I want to do the black matte with super shiny black stamp on top and maybe an opposite nail for two.  I love that.  I bought some Cucci leather looking polish that I want to use too.

I can definitely recommend Kleancolors textured once they are thinned out.  Boss Lady is gorgeous and the Jordana textured glitter line has almost the same colors as the Mariah Carey Christmas release.

that first one with the fading three colors/lines is very cute.. 

its annoying cus they can only do so much with shellac.. i just found a place that can do matte shellac. 

theres one place in SF that is very artsy and can do a lot of cool things.. but it be like 90 for the manicure.. 
i once got a simple gradient.. (white nails that looked like it faded into another color with glitter) and that was 70..

This is a pretty ombre.  I finally did Pinterest when I realized I needed nail inspiration.   I couldn't figure out what to use it for before.

trandesign.com.   That site is dead now though.  The new one is http://www.nailsupplies.us/" rel="nofollow - http://www.nailsupplies.us/

And while we're talking about this nail polish should not cost an arm and leg.   I only really buy from a couple of places.  The one above and these two.  I just wish they sold OPI but I got the hookup with my friend's cosmo license.   She takes me to the wholesale and I rack up for $3.99 on OPIHeart

Holy Grail right hereClap

ETA:  A lot of those liquid sand polishes go from stunning to out of this world once you add topcoat.  The texture underneath just adds this crazy dimension that is hard to describe.

OMG.  WTH is going on with the voice-overLOLLOL

I'm the same way with Konad as I am with MAC.  I'm not paying extra for your regular quality stuff.  I WILL find an alternative that is worth the actual price. 

I do have white, red and black Konad stamping polish though.  Its crazy thick and stamps okay but I like to use the Kleancolors black and white better.  They work fine.

For glitter polish removal the foil method is helpful. Put remover on cotton, then place on nail and wrap in foil for a few minutes, and slide off. Using a good topcoat helps level out and smooth glitter. I use Seche Vite.

I've been taking some Target brand multi vitamins gummies and my nails are a hellava lot stronger. They can grow long, but never too strong. I'm enjoying nail colors now, but I'm a bore. I stick to neutral and jazz up only one nail on each hand lol. I buy 100% pure acetone from CVS in a similar bottle, it takes everything off as well with little effort. Milani polishes are my fave.

I watched this vid last summer and ive been doing my nails like she does and my manis last 2 weeks before they start chipping. At the time I was searching for gel kit vids coz i was planning buying the gel kit but saw this vid and tried this method first so dont need the gel anymore:



I bought Nail Envy the Original, its like $15 at Ulta and Amazon has it for $10:


I buff my nails then apply 1 coat of nail envy, then 2 coats of your regular nail polish (i have a ton of $1 polishes, so it doesnt have to be expensive), then 1 more coat of nail envy and finally top coat (i use seche vite-$10 @ Ulta- bcoz when it dries it looks like glass).

The idea is to sandwich your nail polish with the nail envy. Minimum 2 weeks on nails and on toes I go at least a month before i need to work on my cuticles, or if I just want to change color


Nail Envy doesn't work on my nails. I use this:



best strengthener i've ever used and it keeps my nails strong because I haven't used it in the last month or so and i'm still not suffering breaks.

But I change my polish so frequently that i'm not worried about keeping a manicure longer than 2-3 days tops.

Duh.  I thought you said if photographed "well".  In the 2nd to last photo you can see the coral but it does look red.  I bet this looked really nice in person though.   Can't remember the name of the dupe of this but its a Zoya polish I think.

tuh! 
i was just talking.. i know its not likely...
growing your nails isn't that hard (no shade jonesy) but i can't just become artsy… 

so many things go into nails.. shape.. evenness.. and all types of stuff. it will be all crooked and a mess.. 

i can't even get a cat eye to look the same on both eyes.. having to do that to 10 nails…? 
idk…. 

i need to look more into that stamper thing.

I'm in for the nail challenge. How do you guy get you nails to stop splitting on the sides. Ohh that irks my nerves. When I go to the nail place I always tell them to paint the whole nail all the way to the edges. They never listen.


Posted By: kfoxx1998
Date Posted: Feb 18 2014 at 11:44am
I have that same problem suga.   I try to wrap the sides with polish and top coat but they are hard to get to.  And the breakage is usually way down the side.Angry

I'm going to try the Duri Slay recommended.  Her nails look amazing and all I need is to get rid of the breakage and mine can get there I hope.

do you guys eat healthy? 

i really notice a difference in my nails depending on the way i eat, if I'm sick, and just how my body is doing overall..

I notice a big difference when I drink milk. My nails grow extremely fast anyway, but When I break one and need it to grow out faster, I add more milk. I can get a visible nail from nothing in about 5 days (usually takes about 2 weeks)  I think it may be placebo though, because I read that milk does nothing for nails. But it seems to work for me.

I do eat very healthy in general now ; but even when I was younger and didn't eat healthy, milk was my go to for quick nails. I used it once to get nice nails for my sister's wedding in 4 weeks . I didn't want to wear tips.
