I Simply Must Have It - Nail Strips

 Ahhh, there's nothing like Spring (and a great tax refund) to inspire us to update our wardrobe. It certainly inspires me to create something fun and light. I'm inspired by all sorts of things!

Pulling together the perfect look just isn't complete without slamming nails! The newest trend these days are nail strips or nail wraps. I guess they go by several names. I, personally, haven't had a chance to try them. But I think I'll give it a go.

I had seen them a few time in my favorite magazine, Lucky, but I never said to myself, "Oh, let me run out and get me some of those!" This isn't a product review because, let's face it. I sew for a living and my nails take a beating. But that doesn't mean I can't enjoy looking at them or waste my hard earned money buying a set that I'll probably never have time to use. And it sure isn't a good reason why I can't share with you some of those that I found out there when I went a searching for a place to waste said hard earned money.



You all have probably seen these by Sally Hansen. Booty Camp! $10. What woman wouldn't love pink camo!?!

With "native" becoming all the rage, these are a perfect look to seal the deal. From Nail Fraud $8.00

Ethnic Print

 Here are a few wild ones from Nail Rock. There were so many unique looks I just couldn't choose! I love them all!

All of these are beautiful and the choices are endless. But the one that intrigued me this tutorial on nail marbling on Youtube.


Anyone can do it. It looks like fun and I can't wait to try it out. There's several techniques on Youtube so here's a chance to learn something new and really be creative without breaking your budget.

If any of you get the chance to try this out, please let me know how you felt about it!!!!

I have the nail strips in the leopard pattern and really like them but, for some reason, I never seem to wear them that much.

I think they are more for special occasions unless you're someone who doesn't work with their hands all day and night like I do.
