Holographic Lines (fun with striping tape)

Holographic Lines (fun with striping tape)

I’ve never been a big fan of striping tape, mostly because I never really got the hang of it.  It never leaves the clean lines I am hoping for, it’s really fiddly and forget about using the tape itself in a design.  I find it always lifts and peels off the nail, despite top coat. But, because Fabiana set it as a challenge on Nail Art Nation, it’s back for one time only. I paired it with pretty polishes to make myself feel better, aka Holographic Lines. Read More

Review: Micro Crystals

If you been in the nail art world recently, you’ll have heard of Swarovski Crystal Pixie. It’s a product of tiny gems or Micro Crystals you can use to encrust your nails for some full on bling. This product is very similar to that, but without the same high price tag. Born Pretty Store markets them as 1.2mm Zircon Micro Rhinestones. You get 300 in a pot for $1.99 and there are four colours available.  Read More
