I LOVE to do my nails!! I normally just have french tips on them. Which apparently EVERYONE knows. This is the exchange a good friend of mine had with her daughter the other day.
"I was asking her different questions about different shapes. I asked her to think of something that was a small square. She said, "I can think of something small and square-ish that is the same size as your two front teeth, Momma." OK, what Lauren? "Amanda's fingernails, when they're long with white on the top." This girl doesn't miss ANYTHING!!! :)"
HA! So basically my nails are famous. Using the above as my pinspiration (stole this term from my buddy Jen) I decided to do orange glitter tips. Consider it a stay-at-home mom's idea of bling :)
glitter frames. I filed my nails, then applied polish just to the tips and sprinkled on the glitter. Do this one at a time, paint tip, sprinkle glitter, paint tip, sprinkle glitter and so on. This way your tip is wet enough with polish to really grab the glitter. And you'll want to do it over some paper so you can gently tap off the excess. Let them dry, which actually for me didn't take that long. Then I took a small eye shadow brush (a small paint brush would probably work too) and gently brushed off my nail and finger that still had glitter lingering.
