Yummy! Fruit cup!

This is soooo not nail polish/art related..  But yesterday I blogged about how I painted my nails at Denny's and got a fruit cup.  This isn't the exact fruit cup I got yesterday, but it was from a week or so ago.  Yum!

Pretty Pastels....

I've been wanting to get some nice pastel polishes.  Ones that don't require a white polish first, or ones that aren't too sheer. 
 I was browsing through my local Walgreen's and saw these polishes from Wet n Wild.  Inexpensive, and usually you can't go wrong with WnW. 
So, I bought 3 @ 1.99. Afterwards, I headed to Denny's to grab a fruit cup. 
The fruit cup is literally a cappuccino glass, filled with fruit. 
Today it was mandarin oranges, strawberries, and bananas.  We (my  mom and I) usually get a side of hot fudge and whipped cream.  Yum! 
Anyway...  I couldn't wait to use the polishes.  I wanted to make sure they were real sheer, and I wanted to see if I would have to use a white nail polish underneath. So there, sitting at Denny's I painted my nails.
  I was sooooo happy!  Neither was the case!  Honestly... I couldn't imagine returning a nail polish, but I think I would have done it today.  Here are the colors in the bottles....And then on my nails, with a yellow by Sally Hansen and an orange by L.A. Colors.

Groovy man...

I used a white base coat and then used a neon purple, neon yellow, neon green, neon blue, and neon pink! I just made some curvy like stripes and while they all were still wet, I dragged a needle through to make the lines.  You probably could use a toothpick, but I wasn't to sure if that would be to thick.  And of course I finished it off with a top coat!

Flippin' flakies!!!

These were quite easy to do...  I used an old, and when I say old, I mean it could be called a fossil, nail polish from Sally Hansen called Garnet Chrome.  I then used a black striper and created the designs.  On my ring finger, I found what are called 'flakies' and pretty much poured them onto my nail where there was tacky polish.  And then finished it up with a top coat!

Palm Tree

This was the first design I did when I received my nail art brushes.  Funny thing is, I don't really use the brushes too much.  Dotting tools, yes.  Brushes, not so much.  I think I need to invest in getting some acrylic paints so I can start doing better designs.
