Fun Nails..

I love having my nails done. However (as all you beaders know) having nails can really get in the way, and can also be hard to keep when you work with your hands all day.

So I am going to attempt to commit to taking time once a week to do my nails in an attempt to keep them from breaking (crossing my fingers).

For any of you who haven't checked out the nail isle lately it has changed dramatically! Now you simple find the nails you want, and press them on. No, not the press on tips. Press on nail polish. So far my experience has been the more expensive they are, the worst they are. I know, doesn't make sense to me either. But I have tried three different types of the more upscale expensive brands, and they never stay on, my nails look terrible with in a day. If you can get them to stick on at all that is.

So I've went with the cheapest brand I can find, and I love them! They stick better, they last longer, and I like the selection more.

So here is this weeks! Although I did spend a little extra time with these. I polished my nails with a shimmery blue, and cut out the flowers. Still even with taking the extra time, I still finished my nails in less then 20 minutes including drying time.  and now when I bead I get to look at fun nails versus broken chipped ones!

Okay.. enough rambling... here are this weeks nails (3 days after doing them) The blue polish didn't turn out as nice as I would have liked, especially for the brand it is, but other then that, I like them very much.

Very interesting! I have recently decided to try acrylic or gel nails. We have an over abundance of nail salons here and I thought I would give it a try. Yours look great!

OH I'm so jealous! They are adorable. Since moving into my house, my nails have taken a beating. I look at them and can't even believe they're mine :(
