My Nail Bling

So when it comes to nails I have no idea what the hell I’m doing. I can’t even do a basic paint job well. lol. I used to get my nails done religiously but with the 5-6 kids I have daily that’s not happening any more. Whaa!!!! So my nails look like crap. I don’t paint them because I wash dishes and my hands way too much and I’m yet to find a nail polish that can actually last a day with me. lol. I do paint my toes on the other hand. I’m not sayin they look great, but ay I tried.

So when I come across things at the store that I think will help me in this area I buy them. I have a few crackles, but somehow I still manage to f*##@ that up. I put too much crackle and it doesn’t really crackle. lol. Anyway I found some products that I like and wanted to share with you guys. First is the french manicure set I got. It’s by Broadway nails and called Real life brush-on gel kit. Honestly I wasnt expecting them to work that well, but they surprised me. So the kit comes with 48 white tips & clear tips. Guess which ones I chose? You guessed it, white tips( I’m not painting clear ones). It has a file, manicure stick, brush on gel, activator & cleaner. When I first opened it I was like great, there’s no way i’m gonna to be able to do this. But it actually was pretty easy, thanks to the instructions. I give it 4 out of 5 stars, I would have given it 5 if it lasted longer. They look professionally done. I really like it:) This is great for those of you who are moms and don’t have time to get your nails done or those of you who wanna save money. I got mine at walmart and I think they were $7-$8 .

here's the package

I got a lil of the gel on my fingers, but pretty good for my first time, right?!

Now back to my toes. I recently purchased the Sephora nail bling, $7 at Sephora. Instead of using it for my fingers I used it for my toes. Its pretty self explanatory. You take the sticker and cut it to the shape of your nail and slap it on. Then i filed it a little to get it semi perfect. I did my daughters too. That was a lil more difficult because she’s 2 and her toe nails are super tiny. I felt like a crackhead cuz I kept dropping the lil pieces in the carpet and was tweekin out lookin for them. lol. Good times..

These lasted about 2 weeks on me and about 4 days on her. I also have used the sally hansen nail stickers and those last forever on my toes. Literally months!! I like the hot pink and black zebra one from them. So here’s the pics of our toes using the Sephora nail bling.
