Nails, Nails, Nails
I haven't painted my own nails in YEARS and I mean YEARS. I can't even remember the last time actually. Between my friends, Michelle and Rachael, and Pinterest I've really been wanting to do my nails. So I asked for some nail polish for Christmas.
..and Josh got me some!
It's a great little Essie Collection

Some of you probably seen my post of the great design Michelle did on my nails, Thursday night. I LOVED them, but me and acrylic don't last long together. So after losing one nail and her fixing it, I lost 3 more. =( Boo!
So I decided I'd paint them on my own.
I took off my acrylics and decided to use another of my Christmas gifts, which is perfect because we're going to a Pittsburgh Penguins game tomorrow night up in Pittsburgh. I'm SO excited.
I put 2 coats of the Cocktail Bling on which is like a gray. And did the little trick I learned from Rachael on her blog post to make them dry faster. Her trick? Run them under cold water for 20 seconds. It works. I swear. I was so impressed.
Then I took my tattoos and cut them to their smallest size so they would fit nicely on the nail. I was worried about them staying in place, but the "stickiness" of the nail polish allows it to stick without moving. Yay!
I used a small bowl of water and a washcloth to apply water to the tattoo for it to transfer. I did this for 30 seconds and they transferred perfectly.
So excited for the game!
