Today we have Alisha from Coily Locks She and I met last year at Type A Parent conference, and after realizing that we are both fun sized (under 5’5″) we clicked! She often features great nail art on her blog, and while she says that she is not a professional, she always gives great advice on how to get a great at home manicure without having to break the bank. Welcome her to our Houseful, and let her know how much you love her nails! After that, go and pick up some polish, and treat yourself to this Mother’s Day Nail Tutorial.
It’s that time of year where we as Mothers are celebrated for all we do! I personally would love a day where I have the house to myself and I can just sit and watch Netflix all day and sip on wine. That’s the perfect Mother’s Day for me! LOL Since I don’t live in that fantasy world, I’ll just have to daydream about making that vision come true.
Now if that’s not possible and you still want to treat yourself to something special why not give yourself a mani/pedi right at home. It saves money and its fun! I love doing nail art but my skills are lacking and it ends up looking like my 5yo attempted to do my nails. Well that’s just not cute and we can’t have that.
The best part of this type of nail art is that it is super easy and only takes a few minutes. As moms our time is precious so any time we can take a shortcut you better believe I snatch it up and run with it.
The products that I used for this are China Glaze polish in Feel the Breeze and Jamberry wrap in Serendipity. I painted 2 coats of the pink color and made sure to keep my nail art finger free of polish. Remember to use a good base coat as well as a fast drying top coat. There’s nothing worse than spending that time painting your nails perfectly only for them to smudge. For the nail that would have the Jamberry wrap applied I made sure that nail was free of any polish and just followed the manufacturer’s instructions. Now I have a great looking manicure and flowers that won’t die and will last up to 10 days. Win win all around! Now if you don’t have any nail wraps you can also use a dotting tool or toothpick and make flowers as well. Place a few drops of polish in a circular motion with a different color for the center and PRESTO you’ve got flowers.
