The rainbow toes are sooo cute! Thanks for sharing how you did it.

I like the little hearts too - they are really sweet.

Reverse french!! That looks really cool - I'm not sure I could do that detail on my right hand though??

They both look great! I like the hearts! Someone sent me some chunky glitter pieces but I haven't gotten around to using them yet!

thanks! I don't use much glitter either, but it seemed appropriate this time Smiley The only advice I have is that if you tend to pick at polish that doesn't feel perfectly smooth, use a LOT of top coat over the glitter. I didn't put any top coat over the pink nails and feeling the edges of the glitter drove me nuts. I have 2 or 3 coats of top coat over the hearts on the French mani to even out the edges. It's not totally even, but there's no 'rough edges' from the glitter.

Belladune - I like the reverse French, especially that grey-ish color.

Limeriot- do you have the little round stickers that go on 3-hole punch paper so it doesn't rip in the binders? After the light color polish is DRY, put one sticker on the bottom of the nail, and paint the rest. Peel off the sticker before the polish dries (this is a little tricky - if the polish is too wet, it'll smudge, if it's too dry it'll rip) and ta-da! perfect round edges Smiley

Mare Mare- thanks for the thread. I haven't done very much crafting because I've been getting my creative outlet through learning nail art.

Today I am sporting cheater nail art. I used part of a kids temporary tatoo and adhered it to   a white polish, added a top coat and a gemstone that was the same size and color as the flower center. To adhere the tatoo you dip it in water, it should curl when you pull it out, and place on the nail, holding it for a couple seconds. If you try to place it and dampen after it is on the nail it wont come out complete.
 I used coordinating colors for the other nails. I was going for a modified french nail with the tips mimicking the vine on the accent nail.



This is a messy mani using a nail tatoo kit.


I have been practicing with painting as well.


My favorite are the half moons though.


Another fun look is the stamping on a sheer glitter polish.
