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.

They are really coming along nicely. Your doing a great job Kimmi! Keep it up!! Smiley Happy

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles 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.

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

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 Smiley Happy 

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

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.

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Wow, you've learned so quickly!  I really enjoy watching the progression of your adventures in acrylics!

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Thank you!  I've been worried that I may be annoying people with my nails posts lol.

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Too cute!

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Thank you!

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Oh no don't do it!! They kinda really suck. I has many Nail Tech friends in school and they all had practice hands but used their own hands all the time. Those practice hands are horrible. They don't bend and don't have an actual nail so you don't really get the real hand experience, they are completely different

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Kimmi----I LOVE looking at your nail pix! I think I'm getting more into nailpolish because of you, I've been doing my nails at least 2-3 times a week lately. I keep mine pretty short so they don't look as nice as yours do. I actually quite like the milani nailpolishes and topcoat! They don't cost an arm and a leg and work really well. They dry pretty quickly and I love their range of bright and pastel colors Smiley Very Happy

 

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Sephoramusthave, thank you!  It sounds like your nail polish collection is beginning!! lol.  I haven't tried the Milani polishes, but I've seen pictures of them on Instagram and they're beautiful!  Especially the glitters!

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Thank you so much for the head ups!  I'll put the money that I would have used to buy a hand and put it towards other acrylic supplies or nail polish.  You just helped my wallet! lol.

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

I love looking at them too she's so good at it!

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

You should post a design after you do it again and have BT decide on a name for it. like a voting name contest .  

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

That's a cool idea!

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

Great job! Love the blue strip. I cant do acrylic to save my life. I just make a huge mess! 

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

I love watching your improvement and progress, Kimmi!

 

Keep it coming!!! Smiley Very Happy

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

I really love the red with stars Smiley Happy It would be a good look for prom or the fourth of July Smiley Happy

Re: I'm Running Out of Acrylic Topic Titles Lol.

I'm not much of a person who does anything with their nails, but I was browsing the what's new at sephora page and I found this! Ciate Chalkboard Manicure. I thought it would be a really fun idea for fourth of july/summer!
