Water Marble Prototypes!

Hey guys! I’ve got some water marbles on deck! I absolutely love water marbling. It can be a little messy, but once you’re able to get your designs down, it’s so rewarding!

For my marbling, I use a small cup filled with room temperature  filtered water. I make sure to use polish that hasn’t thickened also(the thicker the polish, the less it will spread on the water). 

Here’s what I came up with: 

 

Water marbling works really great for short and long nails. Give it a shot! Good luck!

Nail CareTip: Ladies…Buff Your Nails!

Hey guys! 

I bought a basic nail buffer from Sally Beauty to help smooth my natural nails. I’ve used buffers many times before, and they generally give a good smoothness and shine. In the past I’ve purchased the cheaper ones at Wal-Mart, and they were just alright…

But then…

I used the buffer from Sally’s and this happened: 

That’s not a clear coat of polish , guys! That’s my nail, and the fabulous nail buffer I used! 

Once I used it, polishing my nails was very easy as they were very, very smooth. As you can see, the shine is incredible. 

So Buff Your Nails! You can do this between manicures to give your nails a break to prevent yellowing. 

Stay tuned for more tips !
