What's Red, Black and Silver? by KatieAlves What's Red, Black and Silver? by KatieAlves
My nails!
I recently bought one of those fine tip nail pens and a fine tip nail brush, so I thought I'd try them out!

My old high school had the same colours, but it was a "rebel" mascot.

I love this
simple yet pretty
i do a lot of nail art at home and i found if you use masking tape your lines come out much better and cleaner

if your in to nails, there's something you should really try. my daughter and i do it all the time. marbling your nails. its really easy and it looks amazing. i think with what you do with the eyes that marbling will be a piece of cake for you. there is a you tube vid that shows you how. it really is simple.

where did you get silver nail polish?
Trying to find one, kind of hard to find a good one here in Norway..

It's Sally Hansen Chrome! I love that stuff! It's probably the only stuff that only takes one coat! I believe there is a chrome pen now too!

The nail pens wouldn't happen to be Sally Hansen brand would they? I saw them recently in a store and I was wondering if it was worth while to buy them. Do they work and show up well?
Reply
:iconkatiealves:
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
Yup! It is! It works pretty good, but I did zebra stripes and it kind of broke up when I put top coat on. For dots, it works really well, for big stuff, it's kind of flaky.

I'm left handed, so that IS my screwed up hand! haha I was surprised, usually I'm awful with my right hand, but it didn't turn out too badly!

Use nail polish remover on a Q-tip after I'm finished to clean it up! Otherwise it'd be all over the place! XD

SAmaryllis Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh gosh, it's as simple as something like that? XD;;; Unfortunately I don't have any remover since I've never been too hardcore about doing my nails. I only remove polish from my nails by wiping off new polish on it when they start chipping haha!

You can even buy nail polish remover pens!

I look at these and I can't help but thinking "A-team nails". It's the red stripe dividing the black and gray that does it!
Anyway, I like it. It's amazing what some people can create on such a small curved surface.

yeaaahhhh i got some of those 2. apparently theres 2 different kind, "nail polish in a pen" type, where the tip is this stiff thick brush, and the "detail pen" where the tip is a felt tip. i had no probs with the nail polish in a pen type, though the brush did get pretty stiff and hard to use after the first use. it caused streaks in the polish being applied. over all, id still like to use regular polish (especially for the price). the detail pens however, i quite enjoy, and my only problem with that was it rubbed off super easy and absolutely needs a top coat. normally not a problem, but for someone who just bought their first nailpolish, i own no topcoat. XD

Yeah when I first bought the pen, I didn't have a top coat. I just recently bought the top coat, so now I don't have a problem with that! :D
