  1. sally hansen salon effects?

  2. It kind of looks like she may have used fabric or paper, cut it to the nail size, and adhered it with some clear polish. it’s a pretty simple concept in theory but so hard to do by oneself, trust me!

  3. I love these, but wish that these posts had a bit more info to them. Hopefully when people are submitting they say “oh I used the nail stickers from this line” or “this is a nail stamp with these colors” etc. Even if it’s not a tutorial, a little more info would be nice to have.

  4. I wanted to say it’s probably a stamping job with a konad stamper and then a plate that has that design on it. It looks like the bird on a tree is one stamp and the leafs are another.

    Then I looked closer at the bits that go past her cuticle and those don’t look like polish marks they look like those nail appliques.

    Bit of a bummer, but if you aren’t really into nail polish it may be hard for some to tell it’s just an applique, not actually a free handed,or even a stamping job. It took awhile because she has the polish residue around her finger – but if you look at the pointer the entire design goes way past the cuticle giving away that it’s an applique. Usually stamp jobs don’t look like that because they’re hard enough to get on the nail as it is.

    Hopefully the nail art I submitted is featured on the page. I worked hard on it, and they’re awesome. Who doesn’t like storm troopers?

  5. HOW did she do that? I’d give you snaps and claps and hugs for a DIY tutorial. Those nails are AMAZING.

  6. I agree that the free handed nail art should be featured more often instead of the ones that just use the new nail foils.

  7. I want them done like this!

  8. ok really this is literally impossible unless your an artist

  9. How do I get these nails?!?

  10. All of the recent nails are nice, but their all that “nail foil” stuff.
    I love these, but I think that more free handed nail art should be shown. :) xxx

  11. HOW???
