I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Over the weekend, I practiced more with acrylic on my nails and my mom's nails.  It's such fun!  My mom is also an excellent volunteer.  She comes to me and asks when I'm going to do her nails lol.  

 

Here are a couple of pictures of mom's nails.  She wanted French white tips with an ocean blue stripe.

I think this nail came out the best of the bunch.

 

 

I went with natural shade tips, but I need to work on getting them look the same length.

I decided to apply some polish.  Sally Girl in Pink It Up and Atomic Polish in Bowie in Space.

You're getting better & better at this! I love the blue stripe on your mom's nails. I had acrylic's in HS & then tried doing my own in college to save money... it was a distaster. I should have known better since I suck at paining my nails. Then I switched to pink & white gels since they are better for your nails, but that got really expensive. Now I have an LED light at home and do my own gel polish. I still miss the pink & whites, but I rather spend that money at Sephora :smileyhappy:

Thanks, dannyc!!  I can't recall the exact shade name, but the blue is one of the StripeRite polishes from Sally's.  I really like the brush on them, especially for nail art "flicks."  

 

I think I'm one of the few people on the planet who has not tried gel polish lol.

Thank you!!  I've thought about getting one of the practice hands or fingers from Sally's so I can work on practicing more.  My mom was a step ahead and read the reviews on them, and some people said they aren't really worth it.  I don't know if that was from the perspective or a cosmetology student or what.
