Bye bye Smudges

Product Review: Nicole by OPI 'Drying Drops'

Why I love it? I can apply my polish and continue with my regular routine without having to wait.

Why it works? I wasn't able to find the main ingredients, as to why it dries so rapidly. But the way it

Why you'll love it? If your a girl on the go like me, you can now D.I.Y your nails in between tasks.

Where you can purchase it? At any retail store like Target, Walgreen, Vons or online Amazon

 Are you tired of having to wait for your nail polish to dry? I know i was until i found a great product that cuts half of the drying time and allows me to continue with my day. 

Nicole by OPI 'Drying Drops' works like a charm. You do your regular polish application wait a minute or two till the top coat has adhere to the polish and apply 1-2 drops. Your nail polish will be completely dry in about 5 minutes. You won't have to worry about going to sleep right after and waking up with sheet marks.

I will admit that I've had this product for quite a long time and had never put it to the test. Until last night when I wanted to polish my tips but also wanted to go sleep right after. Tried it a minute after my top coat waited about 10 minutes and i woke up with amazing nails. 

Several brands carry drying drops and I'm sure most of them have the same ingredients but the Nicole by OPI is supper cute and comes in travel size. Bought mine at Target for about $15+

Don't take my word for it, give it a try.

the begining of Acrylic nail designs

I'm back I've been m.i.a for quite some time. Just started a great new job in which I'm extremely happy. Haven't had time to do that many designs. Anyway if you follow me on my facebook nail page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Karla-Nail-Design/193176844050046 Karla Nail Design you will know that i just purchased my first Organic Nails collection 'African'.

A little about Organic Nails from what my friend and former class mate Jackie Lopez taught me.Organic Nails is an acrylic system i believe its a well known Mexican brand. Pricey but very good quality the color pigments are very concentrated and always have true colors. I hadn't been able to purchase any but i finally did.. I bought the 'African' Organic Collection which is exactly like the name. Its these gorgeous wild, intense and very fierce colors.

My 'African' Organic Collection

Another friend of mine Saki loves long stiletto nails and forward me a picture of Anna Del Rey strutting these awesome nails.

I will be doing them on Saki really soon but wanted to freshen up my skills and came out with my version.

I must say for being my first time there not that bad

I used the Red 'Canoe' from the 'African' Collection of Organic Nails 

On the index finger i did a 3D design and encapsulated it.

 Final product came out gorgeous
