Look Product Review 

Look Product Review 

Hello I’m here today with an honest Look product review! I wasn’t sent these to review, I won them on Instagram! Which I was super excited about! I got a gel-like topcoat and a manicure mat. The manicure mat is made of silicon so you can make decals with it, I thought the best way to test it was the ability to make decals, and the topcoat to see if it smudges my designs and works for decals. 


When you decide to make a decal with stamping you need to put some topcoat and let that dry. You need to do this so it has a place to stick to. This topcoat is wonderful for making decals, it makes it strong but not brittle strong. 


One nice thing about this mat is that one side is shiny, so it won’t slide around. 


I do recommend getting this mat and topcoat especially because of how well the topcoat works for decals. 

Here is the nail art I ended up doing! It’s a reverse stamp decal! 


These nails are very summery which I like, and I think the colors I used really pop!

 

I also used this topcoat as a topcoat too which works really well! 🙂 


I’m very happy to be used this products and I know I’ll be using this mat a lot! Thank you so much for reading and I’ll be posting soon! 

River Jade Inspired 

Hello! I’m sorry for the later post I just got time to write! Today I got to go to the river and it was lots of fun and I get to go again tomorrow! Also I’m upgrading my room with an accent wall and some newer furniture and I’ll post a before and after of all of it into its own blog! I hope that’ll be fun and work out! 

Well let’s get to the nail art! I started with a teal base color on my middle and ring finger and left the rest black. I’m trying to stay away from a white base color! Then with grey, black, and teal polish I did a distressed gradient, too bad the grey dulled the teal but that’s ok. The gradient is inspired by the river jade I was finding at the river and after I did the gradient a stamp sounded nice. 


I stamped the white design with some of bundle monster’s stamping polish! 

If you think my nails are shorter they are! Since I’m gonna be moving heavy furniture and such I don’t wanna tear or rip a nail off. I’d rather have short symmetrical nails then a ripped one! 


These are pretty cool, I really like having my middle finger and ring finger be accent nails. That’s my favorite! 

Thank you so much for reading and I’ll keep you updated on the upgrade of my room and post like normal! And please comment me some ideas! 

Gnome Nail Art!

Gnome Nail Art!

Hello I’m here today with some gnome nail art! Don’t hear that everyday do you? I happened to have a stamp of a gnome house and I free handed the gnome on a stamper and then cover it in topcoat and peeled it up and applied it to my nail! I used so many nail polishes it’s crazy! 


Also the stamper I used for the reverse stamper was the Pueen delux stamper because it has a refill pad with really helped. 


I started with a sky blue base and used a makeup sponge to dab on some white for clouds. Then I put on the little house and the gnome on and painted on grass. On my thumb I free handed a tree, I don’t know why but it seemed to fit! 🙂 


I like this fun themed look, do you guys have any suggestions for me? I’d really love if you did! I plan on buying some cheap clear stampers from Amazon and reviewing them, I don’t know if I’ll be able to order them or when they come in so it might be a while. Is there anything you might want me to review? Well thank you so much for reading!! 🙂 

Layered flower nail art 

Layered flower nail art 

Hello! I’m sorry I didn’t post Sunday, I didn’t have time to do my nails so I had to wait till today! But I’m glad I got to today! 

So yesterday I went to Sally’s Beauty store to look at some polish and I found this beautiful teal!!! It’s so pretty! This color has been my favorite for a while and I just had to have it! This is actually the first polish by Orly I have ever gotten! And it applies great, super consistent and super vibrant in color I really recommend! 


Let’s get to the nail art shall we! I used a born pretty plate, two bundle monster stamping plates, and bundle monster’s monocle stamper. 


First I stamped the silver and then the dark blue. I like this layered stamping and wanna try to do it more, it really adds to the print. What do you think about it? 

I really love this color, actually it looks like I’m gonna paint one of my walls this pretty color soon, would you want me to post about that? 

Thank you so much for reading and again I’m sorry I didn’t post Sunday! Please comment any suggestions for me! Bye! 🙂 

Nail Polish Nail Art! 

Nail Polish Nail Art! 

Hello! I’m here today with nail polish nail art, what a mouth full! I like the idea of these nails just the end result wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. I’m not the best with decals and need to get better, so maybe expect more nail art with decals! 


I started with a light blue base, I specifically chose to not use a white base! I know I use white too much! After you apply your base coat and base color you can use a silicon mat and apply some top coat and let that dry.  Then stamp your design on and color it in and apply topcoat over it and let it dry!! For a while long time! 


You can then peel it up and adhere it to your nails and top coat! I put two thick coats on just to keep it down.

Do you guys want me to post anything different? Add anything? Please comment below! Also! I’ve been actually trying to grow and maintain a Instagram account, would you please go check it out, it’s actually what I’ve been watermarking my nail art, @nails__by__belle is my account! 🙂 it would mean a lot of you checked it out! 

Thank you so much for reading! And that’s about it! Keep Calm And Polish On! 

Steam Punk Nail Art 

Steam Punk Nail Art 

Hello everyone! I’m here today with some cool steam punk nail art that I’ve been wanting to do lately! It’s super simple but has a cool pay off. 


I started with an all dark blue base. Finally not a white base! Then I stamped the gears, hot air ballon and the octopus on my nails! 


These are so simple and very easy to do, so there really isn’t much to talk about how I did it. 

I have some questions, what would you like to see on this blog? Do you want facts about me? Do you want something else? Or keep this up? Do you want crafts and baking? Please comment below what you’d like to see on this blog I’d really appreciate it!! Thank you for reading!!! 

 

Cool Design Nail Art 

Cool Design Nail Art 

Ummmmmm…what to call these……. I know they look cool though, like in an elegant way. Kinda remind me of moss? 

Well I attempted to do that marble look with water and hair spray and put your nail in and it leaves a marble pattern. It could have been the water, hairspray or even the polish, I’m not sure but it didn’t work out like expected. 


I started with a white base (gee how predictable) If you have seen tutorials of actually spraying in the hair spray to separate there is a lot less dark polish. Maybe I put too much in the water? 


I like my pointer and middle finger nail most, they look a lot cooler. Don’t you think? I still like them even though they are not what I expected. Do you guys like them? 

Please comment below what you think or what you think I did wrong! Thanks for reading! 🙂
