My Nail Routine

Hey guys,

Today I show you my nail routine. Enjoy, and I hope you'll learn something, haha :)

First of all: NEVER CUT YOUR CUTICLES! You can still buy them, they miserable cuticle ruiners. Cuticle scissors. Sometimes their on a cuticle pusher! :( Tough I'll ask you, PLEASE don't use them.

A nail routine is all about taking care of your nails. It's not just paint your nails and go on with your life (whooh it sounds like a drug addict hahaah), and if you do: your nails won't thank you for that.

This is what I use:

- Cotton pad & Cotton swab
- Cuticle oil
- Nail file
- Hand Cream
- Base Coat that protects your nails, and make them healthy and unbreakable - yay! :D

Step 1
Get rid of you old nail polish. Use a aceton free remover.

Step 2
Rub Cuticle Oil into your cuticles (if you don't own any, use olive oil) and push back your cuticle. I use a cotton swab dipped in cuticle oil. Find out what works the best for you! :D If there's some oil on you nails, remove this with nail polish remover on a cotton pad.

Step 3
Give your nail a perfect shape - I usually shape my nails square or squoval.You can also use a buff file to make your nails smooth and shiny.

Step 4
Apply a base coat or a nail hardener to protect and strengthen your nails. I like to use my selfmade garlic base coat. After this you can paint your nails in the color whatever your want :D! End with a good sealing quick dry blablablabla top coat.

Step 5
Moisturize your hands and nails with a soft nice-smelling hand cream :). Look at my zen zen zen hand cream, haha. Use the one you like the most. Mine smells delicious! :D

Hope you learnt something - maybe you discovered a mistake in your usually manicure routine. Hey but remember, it's never too late too stop! ;)

Wipe out Flower Tutorial!!!

Hey ppl,

Today I'm going to show you how to create a beautiful flower on your nails without konad. I inspired this tutorial on an accident that I had with making a little cute flower on the top of my nail after that I wiped out one of the leafs I decided to do it on all of them and here is the result. The tutorial is divided in 8 steps for you without giving base- and topcoat a step because thats just a habitat. I painted this tutorial on the nails from my friend Iris, because my nails were still full of the Lacy Roses =P. Okay well let's start the tutorial!

Step 1:

Paint your nails with a ivory coloured nailpolish (I used (735) Pearly Pink by Max Factor). You just need one layer because the background doesn't need to catch attention.

Step 2 & 3:

First create five drups of purple nailpolish(I used The One And Only by Essence Multi colour dimension) in the form of a circle. Don't use a dottingtool because you need the drups to be thick. Now you have to create one white drup (I used (02) White Secret by Essence) in the center of the five purple drups. Again don't use a dottingtool. Don't let the drups dry when you start with the fourth step

Step 4:

With a toothpicker you have to go from the center of the white dot to the top of the upper purple drup, then go with the toothpicker from the center of the rests of the white dot to the end of the left purple drup and continue like this through the last three dots. When you have to less white you can add a very little drup. If it looks like my flowerlike wipe out on the left you can continue with step number 5.

Step 5:

Now use your toothpicker again and to stripe the mess next to the leafs into the center so you get the effect from the picture on the left.

 Step 6 & Step 7

First you have to make silver lines (I used Kiss Nailart Paint (SPA10) Glitter by Mac) out of the spaces between the leafs of the flowers to the bottom of your nails. Next you make dots at the left side of all the lines by using a dottingtool and some white nailpolish or a nailart pen (I used(02) White Secret by Essence)

Step 8

At last you make a little purple nailpolish (I used (541) Gasoline) dot by using a dotting tool in the center of the flower. Now (after drying) all you need is a topcoat and your nails are done!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial (and I hope you subscibe =))

Hi guys,

This tutorial is inspired by a little gift I got from someone. I thought it was a great nail art design and made a tutorial for you^^. I have divided this tutorial in six steps, so you can easily keep up (I haven't photographed my nails with base- and topcoat but you do need them in this tutorial).

                     Step 1:

(After putting up your basecoat) paint your nails a cute light pink colour (I used (286)OysterPink by Rimmel London) and let it dry. When you have it all dried and egally spread over your nails, usually your second coat because light pink is mostly a very sheer colour, you can continue with step number two.

                     Step 2:

Paint a stripe of white nailpolish (I used (02)White Secret by Essence) in the center of your nail, then by using a dottingtool make the stripe a little ''lacylike''.

                     Step 3

Make some bows with a nail dottingtool or a nailpolish pen (I used French Manicure & Pedicure Pen by essence)

                     Step 4

Make 3 little red dots using a dottingtool or just a little drup of nailpolish (I used (11) So Glamourous by Essence) at the top of your nail.

                    Step 5

Make 3 little dots of white nailpolish on every red dot (I used (02)White Secret by Essence) and by using a toothstick mix the red with white.

                   Step 6

Make little with golden/green nailpolish and a dottingtool  ''sidewayshartslikeleafs'' =P next to every rose (I used Shade No. 26 by 2true). When it has dried you can use a topcoat.

Hope you enjoyed (and hoping for comments),
