Born Pretty Store Nail Art Studs Review, Nail Art Design & Video Tutorial

Hey guys! I hope all is well! As most of you probably know, nail studs have been all the rage lately so I decided to review Born Pretty Store's 350 piece 2mm nail art stud wheel for you! I really like this wheel because it has an assortment of nail studs; it includes both round & square studs in both silver & gold! The studs were easy to apply & lasted until I removed my mani (one week). And I just love how these studs looked on my nails. They are a wonderful & easy way to edge up your mani for a fierce look! I can't wait to do more designs with these!!! This specific wheel retails for $6.99 at www.bornprettystore.com at the time of this post. They also sell this wheel for size 3mm studs or you can browse their 3D nail art supplies because they sell tons of other nail studs aswell as other great nail art products & they offer free shipping worldwide! Use coupon code: TJL91 for 10% off your Born Pretty Store purchase (excludes sale items)! Check out my video nail art tutorial below to learn how to apply these studs & achieve this look! : )

BEST WAY TO REPAIR A CRACKED SPLIT NAIL - DIY VIDEO TUTORIAL

Hey everyone! I hope all is well! Today I wanted to share with you a great way to fix a cracked/split nail. All you need is a tea bag & some nail glue! If you don't have nail glue you can use a clear base coat, though I think you get better, longer lasting results with nail glue. I like my nails on the longer side, but experience occasional splits on the side of my nail, usually right where the distal edge begins. I really hate when that happens because the split is so deep down that I either can't cut the nail at that point cause its too low & if I can cut it I don't want to cause then I'm left with a stub, which is not very pretty! So I like to try to save the nail, at least until it grows out to a decent length. I have tried different methods to fix a split nail & this is my personal favorite. I use this method before applying my nail polish or nail art design & the nail usually stays intact until I remove my mani (about a week). I like to repair the nail fresh before each new mani. So when when I remove my manicure, I will also remove the tea bag piece & nail glue from the broken nail with acetone nail polish remover, then I will repair it with a fresh tea bag piece & glue and then do my new mani. I prepared this video tutorial to show you how I personally repair my cracked/split nails. In this video, BOTH of my thumb nails were split! I repaired both of my nails using this technique & they both stayed intact until I removed my mani which was about a week & a half later! I hope you find this helpful! Please "Like" & Subcribe to my youtube channel! Thanks! http://youtube.com/deriniti

NEW Sally Hansen 2013 Insta-Dri Fall Collection Swatches, Stamp Swatches, Review and Nail Art Designs

Hey everyone! I have a review for you today of most of the new Sally Hansen 2013 Insta-Dri Fall Collection! I reviewed 2 for you guys a couple weeks ago & I have gotten some more to show you today. I also included the two I previously reviewed in this review aswell so that they will all be together, just makes it easier for those interested in learning about this collection. I was so excited to hear about this Fall Collection because the Insta-Dri line has a great formula, they're quick drying and the majority of them work wonderful with nail stamping so I just had to test out these new ones! As I stated in my previous review for Chop Chop Copper & Quick Jean-ius, the new line uses the same flat style brush as the regular Insta-Dris which makes for an easy, smooth application, but you may need to wipe the brush before application as it does tend to pick up a lot of polish. Also, just like the main collection, these polishes are the Big 5 Free (DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor). They come in the same triangular shaped bottles as the original Insta-Dris and you can find them at drugstores such as Walgreens and CVS, though I believe these are only Limited Edition so I suggest you hurry if you're interesting in getting them!

Jet Set Jade - Although this polish is very dark, it takes two coats to make opaque. It's a very deep jade/forest green shade and it does stamp, but it's a little thinner than most of the insta-dri polishes.

Sally Hansen Jet Set Jade
Red-io Active - This is a beautiful candy red polish with lots of shine! This one was a little hard to photograph because in the pics it looks like a cream polish, but it's actually shimmery. The shade reminds me of cherry flavored hard candy & stamps beautifully!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Red-io Active
No S-pear Time - This is a rich olive green tone with tons of shimmer. It took one coat to make opaque & has a beautiful foil like finish. This polish is excellent for stamping on both light & dark bases!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri No S-pear time
Pink Fast - This polish is like the pink version of No S-pear Time. What I mean by that is it has that same shimmery foil like finish & is opaque in just one coat. It's a beautiful shiny fuchsia shade with very fine silver flecks throughout it & it stamps beautifully.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Pink Fast
Quick Jeanius - This is a shimmery deep navy blue, very rich in color! It was opaque in just one coat and took about a minute to dry! And when it comes to nail stamping, this polish did not disappoint!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Quick Jeanius
Chop Chop Copper - The is a beautiful copper shade with tons of shimmer. It's fine micro glittery finish emits tons of sparkle. Unlike many of the other Sally Hansen Insta-Dris, this polish applies somewhat sheer and took about 3-4 coats to make opaque. This is a great shade for autumn but for all my stamping addicts out there, this is not one to stamp with.

As you can see, the majority of this collection stamps beautifully which I really love! And even if you aren't into nail art stamping, they are beautiful polishes to wear & are quick drying, which is great! What do you think of the collection?

Hey everyone! I hope all is well! Today I wanted to share with you this simple cancer awareness nail stamping design I did. There are so many illnesses & cancers out there so I really like this stamping pattern from bundle monster that features awareness ribbons. It makes it so much easier to create awareness nail art designs for different causes & I really like to do designs like these. For this design, I used a couple of the new Sally Hansen Fall Collection Insta-Dri polishes to stamp with. I will be publishing a full review for this collection, including swatches & stamp swatches, sometime within the next week. I did pink ribbons since it's breast cancer awareness month & then decided to switch it up with some jade ribbons for liver cancer awareness. I hope you like & my prayers go out to all those affected by cancer. God Bless!

Five Below Polish Haul - Funky Fingers. Fresh Paint & Salon Express

Hey everyone! So I had put myself on a "no buy" for nail polishes, but recently I saw some cool nail polishes from Five Below that I just had to check out! I was trying to resist but I had gotten some good news recently so I was encouraged to celebrate so I headed on over to Five Below & picked me up some new polishes! I know I was supposed to be on a "no buy" BUT since I'm celebrating this doesn't really count, right? Lol...Anyways, I was really looking for Ruby Wings Color Changing Polish but my Five Below didn't have any!!! But I still managed to get my nail polish fix, lol. I know Fall is here (waah, I don't want Summer to go) but bright colors were still calling my name as you can see! I picked up a few bright Fresh Paint polishes (3 for $5!) and 2 Funky Fingers Polishes (one of which is solar changing polish). I have never tried Fresh Paints before but the polishes look beautiful & I can't wait to try them! I also got a Salon Express Nail Art Stamping Polish Set, I never tried their stamping polishes before but the set was only $2 and includes 2 Stamping Polishes (one white, one black) so I couldn't resist! All together my order came out to less than $13, not bad! Have you tried any of these polishes, which is your favorite?

New Sally Hansen Sugar Coats Swatches and Review

Hey everyone! Since textured polish seems to be all the rage lately, I decided to review some Sally Hansen Sugar Coats for you today! These polishes apply like regular polish but leave you with a textured sandy like finish. According to Sally Hansen, these polishes are "Candy for your nails!" They are a special effect nail polish that leave you with a sugary 3D effect. I actually liked them more than I thought I would. I was afraid they would just look like I applied old clumpy thick nail polish, lol, but they're not like that at all. I have two to show you today, one matte and one shimmer, so that you can see the difference in finishes.

First up is Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Sour Apple: This is a minty green cream shade with a textured matte finish. It took 2 coats to make opaque. It's a lovely shade & the textured effect does not go unnoticed.



Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Royal Icing: This is a sheer sky blue shade with a very shimmery textured finish. I love the pearlescent sparkle that this polish radiates & the textured effect adds another dimension to it's glittery appearance. The downside is it takes over 4 coats to make opaque. I suggest layering this shade over a colored base for a gorgeous effect. In my swatches I used a matching sky blue polish first over my index, middle & ring nails & then applied 2 coats of Royal Icing over it. For my pinky nail I only applied Royal Icing, 4 coats, so you can see the difference. I prefer how it looks over a polished base and I actually like that it's sheer because I can use it as a shimmery textured "topcoat" to layer over other polishes, it's pretty cool!



Overall I am pleased with these polishes! They are easy to apply, dry quickly and give off a beautiful texture. They come from a trusted brand, Sally Hansen, and you can usually find them at drugstores such as Walgreens, CVS, Walmart and more. I will warn you, they are a little difficult to remove, kind of like glitter polish. I usually prefer to remove my nail polish with non acetone polish remover but for these polishes I had to use acetone polish remover. To find more information about Sally Hansen products, check out www.sallyhansen.com or check out their facebook page: http://facebook.com/sallyhansen. What do you think about textured polishes? And which is your favorite?

Hey everyone! Autumn is in the air and did you know that Sally Hansen has come out with a new Fall 2013 Inst-Dri Collection!?! I was so excited to hear this as I love the Insta-Dri line because they have a great formula, they're quick drying and the majority of them work wonderful with nail stamping! I was very curious to check out these new shades and also see how well they work with nail stamping so I have two that I will be reviewing for you today, Quick Jeanius & Chop Chop Copper. The new line uses the same flat style brush as the regular Insta-Dris which makes for an easy, smooth application, but you may need to wipe the brush before application as it does tend to pick up a lot of polish. Also, just like the main collection, these polishes are the Big 5 Free (DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor).

Quick Jeanius - This is a shimmery deep navy blue, very rich in color! It was opaque in just one coat and took about a minute to dry! And when it comes to nail stamping, this polish did not disappoint! It is perfect for nail art stamping as you can see in the featured nail art design!

This is the entire 2013 Fall Collection. Although I only have the two right now, I hope to get more to show you because it is a beautiful collection and seeing Quick Jeanius's stamping abilities make me curious about the rest of the line!

Photo obtained from http://nouveaucheap.blogspot.com (cropped)
Here is a design I did featuring both Quick Jeanius and Chop Chop Copper! As you can see, the shades work very well together & the rich sparkling foil like shades have Autumn written all over them! I stamped my middle and ring nails using Quick Jeanius and as you can see it stamps beautifully!
