Experimenting with my Nails

I wanted to share with you guys some of the different styles of nails I’ve tried over the past few months!  I really love to paint my nails and my friends make fun of me sometimes because I will spend two hours trying out something new with my nails :)

Inspired by Aquí

Inspired by Mattieologie

Next on my list are this tutorial, this trend, and this tutorial.  Would you try any of these? Also, do share any nail tutorials you’ve tried that you love! =)

    How playful and fun you are with your nail art;-)
    I love the different nail colour styles. They are all very summery.
    Pink and orange make good companions, too. Hope you had a relaxing weekend.

    My favorite have to be the pink triangles. So mod. The lace design looks perfect. Are those the Sally Hansen strips?

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com Nnenna

      Thank you Christina and yes they are! :)

    Hi Nnenna! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comment! You have a really cute blog! Those lace nails are really cute – are they the Sally Hansen strips? I’m loving the “Mermaid Nails” tutorial you linked as well. I just bookmarked it and it is on my list to try too! :-)

    Have you seen this tutorial? http://pinterest.com/pin/17595155/

      Thank you very much Juli! Yes, they are the Sally Hansen strips- I love how easy they are to apply and all the various patterns/colors they have! Yay, glad I shared something you liked! And thanks for the pinterest link- I just joined yesterday so I’m still learning how to pin things to my boards! =)

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com Nnenna

      Thank you! You are so right- I always feel better when my nails are well manicured! :)

      Aww, thank you so much Jeanne! It’s something I really enjoy doing! :)

  • http://www.tipatipa.net Monique

    wow so much fun i love the black and white one!!! I’m a huge fan of nail painting especially since i stopped biting my nails…

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com Nnenna

      Thanks so Monique! My friend is exactly the same way- as soon as she stopped biting her nails, she started painting them all the time and she loves it! :)

  • http://tia-cherie.blogspot.com Imogen

    So many great designs here. I am also known as a person who takes a lot of time doing their nails among my friends too.

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com Nnenna

      Thank you so Imogen! Yay, I’m not the only one out there! :D

    I LOVE Salon Effects! I use them whenever I don’t have the time or patience for my polish to dry!

    I’ve been wanting to try the half-moon mani myself. One day!

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com Nnenna

      Agreed- they are such a quick way to spruce up your nails :) And the only thing that’s keeping me from the half-moon mani is that I don’t have those hole reinforcement stickers yet!

  • http://www.boulevarddelamadeleine.com Madeleiene Roberts

    All the styles areterrific. I wish I was that talented with my nails. I like the pink triangle effect. And I like the trio of colors: purple, pink, blue–I think I could achieve that look:)

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com Nnenna

      Thank you so much Madeleine! And you could totally do that look! :)

    I thing the geometric pattern is pretty cool, that looks like a lot of work but the outcome is neat.
