Nails, tips, etc.

Post by Riley on Sat Aug 13, 2011 2:13 pm

I've noticed that people have been talking about having nail-biting issues, weak nails, etc., so I decided that I should make a topic completely about nails.
We can talk about nail polishes you use, nail hardeners, tips and tricks you use to fix your nails, stuff like that.

Also, feel free to post interesting nail polishing tutorials you have found on YouTube. Recently, I have been very into painting my nails and making them cute. I used to have a huge nail biting problem, but it has mostly subsided since I've started wearing nail polish because I remind myself that it's bad for me. Anyway, I have found interest in bubzbeauty, a YouTube user who does hair, DIY projects, makeup, and sometimes nails.

So, I used her Cupcake Nail tutorial, so I decided, I'd share it with you. :3




If I take pictures, I'll probably post a picture of my nails.

I use this pink and blue nail polish called essie.It's pretty good. It comes in like all kinds of dark colours to bright ones,





you can buy it at wal-mart and drug stores I've seen.It's under 10 bucks.

I need nail ideas... I took my cupcake nails off cos I had a better idea, and then I realized I didn't have all the colors I needed, but that was after I removed my polish. So, any ideas? Smile

My nails used to be really weak, they never lasted more than a week Rolling Eyes
so i started taking pills to make my hair, skin and nails stronger.
and it really works, my nails are finally long again (A)

I used to want long nails cuz one friend (boy) of mine had long nails and it was soo cute haha Smile Then again i got oral fixation and if i don't have anything else to bite then it's my nails so i cant really keep them in good shape for a long time. I like BRIGHT nail polishes and usually when i wear them i don't either bite.

I could put stickers on them, but I prefer drawing designs on my nails. Razz

@MaryCourage hmm, that sounds cool. I don't have weak nails or anything, though.

@Eetu that sounds adorable...! :3

The only problem is if you don't protect your skin it takes forever to get the excess polish off. :/

^ Maybe it wouldn't stick too much if you put moisturizer or Vaseline on the skin before water marbling? Nail polish (or any other paint, really) doesn't stick very well on oily surfaces. Like skin, if crumbles off pretty quickly.
But if you're in a hurry, I've used a q-tip tipped in nail polish remover to take off the polish from skin. I always paint my nails rather messily :D

Water marbling is a bit scary. I tried it once and it dried before I even had time to put my nails in the water ...

Lol yeah you have to be really quick, Beffy.

Forace, yeah, I just use a cotton ball or a q-tip to remove it, it's very simple, but still messy. :/

Well, you can always use tape around your nails. Also, they say you can use Vaseline or lotion because it will make your skin oily so the nail polish won't stick.

Video for taping your nails off:





Hope that helps!! ^^

I remembered another good tip for nails. A good nail file! I recommend glass nail files, because they are so fine you can file in any direction (with normal, course files you always file towards the tip of your nail, never "backwards"), they are hygienic because you can wash them, and they last for years! Also, a filing with a fine nail file causes the oils in your nail to come out, which works as glue between the layers of your nail. This might help if your nails usually break in layers.

^ I thought so too! I'm glad she hadn't, because broken nails are disgusting to me :X Just eww. *shudders*
(Btw, also check out Klaire's sister's channel, she has handcrafts videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/NickyDeLys)

I'll mention this tip here as well: sinking your nails in olive oil makes them stronger! Rubbing them with the olive oil helps, too.

And I just remembered this awesome nail blog: http://pienikynsiblogi.blogspot.com/
Don't be afraid of the Finnish title, the blog is also written in English :)
