Nubar Innocent Whispers Fauxnad

A while back I was raving about the Gelous base coat. Yes, it has worked wonders for me about consistent use. Before my nails break, I’ll have to do a few Funky French fauxnads! LOL

I love these lacey designs with white and soft shades. It’s fun but keeps the traditional French Mani theme!

Thanks for looking!

American Apparel Peacock Fauxnad

Lately I’ve been on a Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure kick. I’ve been trying to layering it over any color that I think might look good. That’s good and bad at the same time. Good: it’s beautiful. Bad: it’s very hard to find a ‘nad that won’t look to busy with it. Here’s a Funky French that worked out okay (though I think it looks way more busy in real life).

Sally Hansen Spectrum featuring Smart Nails

I’m back! So I figured I would come back with a non-‘nad post! I decided to pick up some Smart Nails stencils because there was particularly one of the patterns that really stood out for me. These waves are so cool!

How it works: Basically it’s like a patterned version of your favorite french tip nail guides. Stick it on your fully dried polished nail, paint, then peel it off. The consistency of the stickers are a lot like a thin, flexible version of clear contact paper.

Unfortunately, I had to use one sticker per nail (using the whole package for one mani) because the intricate curlies would get warped after I peeled it off. They were super easy to use (easier than ‘nadding!), and when you peeled of the sticker, there was little to no residue: leaving a super clean look! For the long run (at least for intricate designs like the wave), this is a lot more expensive if you’re doing nail art daily. At $2.99 per package,  it can cost  up to that much per mani. However, this is a lot easier than ‘nadding for those of you who want to spruce up your nails every now and then, this is the perfect option!

For those of you who like Creative Nail Design’s Effects collection, they just recently came out with the Sugar Sparkle (silver micro glitter). It’s simply stunning!

I just got Creative Nail Design’s new Candy Sparkle in the mail. The first thing I wanted to do was to layer it over a light color to see whether it will show up. This is awesome! It’s like mini silver flakies. Super unique and I think I’ll be layering this over all pastel colors! It’s so cool!

Sally Hansen Honeydew Konad

While I would love to think of a nice April Fool’s hoax, there’s nothing within reason that would be funny. So how about another Konad? It’s been a while since I’ve done a Funky French mani since my nails keep peeling when they get just a tad longer. What the heck? I’ll just ‘nad it on my nubs.

This is kind of my “let the Spring begin soon” mani for the New Year. Wishful thinking huh?
