Since I'm so into 3d nail art I really needed to find a acrylic system that will work for me, so I decided to invest in some Young Nails acrylic. If anyone out there is curious about what I bought or is interested in acrylic or even gels for that matter, I can show you the stuff I have and what I got in my kit from school...just ask :)
So needless to say, when I got home today I was dying to play. I really wanted one stiletto pinkie nail, but I didn't want to be a danger to myself or my kids so I rounded the tip off quite a bit. I didn't know what I wanted to do on my nails, but I have been wanting to try embedded 3d nail art so I thought that was the way to go. Btw, this is my first attempt at a stiletto nail...
It looks different in person I think. No so rounded on the tip and slimmer looking. Weird. Oh well, you get the idea. So what I did was used a nail form to create the shape/extension using a clear acrylic powder mixed with white sparkles (from Martha Stewart). Then I did the 3d nail art as flat as I could using the YN xxx white powder and the pastel collection of acrylic colours. And encased the whole nail with a fast setting clear powder. Then I filed it and shaped it and used a uv gel top coat.
I like the idea of it, but I'm waiting for the moment I poke myself in the eye. Or it catches onto something and rips my entire nail off my finger. Eep!
Anywho, just a quick show for you guys...my hubby's giving me the stank eye cuz he wants to sit and have family time and I guess that includes me hey? Hope you guys enjoy your weekend :)
