I've been seeing fiberglass nails all over the internet lately and I couldn't resist trying them. Nail videos make things look so easy, but then when you try it, it's a big frustrating mess! (acrylic nails for example). I wanted to share my first impression of fiberglass nails, and show you how I applied them.
You can save so much money doing your own nails. I bet this design would cost at least $60 (maybe more) in a salon. It's cheap, easy and even a beginner can do it. Stop wasting your hard earned money and do it yourself in the comfort of your own home.
Now that winter is finally over, it's time for some colourful spring designs! It's easier than it looks and you can use whatever colour combination you want. I used the ombre technique, but you could use a solid colour or even glitter as a base and they'd still look stunning.

I remember how frustrating it was when I first started stamping. Next to acrylic nail extension this was the hardest nail art I've tried so far. There is definitely a learning curve.

I will save you the hassle and fill you in on what I learned from my many trials and errors. I will add my tips and tricks after the tutorial.

I tried Finger Paints gel polish for the first time and I've created a monster! Since fall is fast approaching I thought I'd pick a few fall colours, but I finally tried it and now I need it in every colour! With the first coat, I knew I was dumping Gelish and moving on. Sorry not sorry Gelish!
I am obsessed with ombre! I love how the colours blend seamlessly into one another like a colour tug of war on your nails. If you're new to ombre, I recommend starting with 2 colours.
Polish perfection takes time, and lots of practice! Especially learning to paint with your non dominant hand. I still make mistakes all the time so don't get discouraged. The good news is, most mistakes can be easily fixed with a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover.
