Nail Designs Yaaaay! I got the polishes from the Essence Metallics collection! OMG, OMG!! Why are they so special? Four of them are magnetic! The only thing I have to criticize is the Essence magnet :/ It’s sucks! I’ve done all the swaches of the magnetic polishes with Alessandro magnet Copper Rulez! Iron Goddess: here you can see the difference between Alessandro and the Essence magnet. Metal Battle: this is the only polish in the collection that is not magnetic. Nothing Else Metals: is some kind of washed out golden olive color with silver highlights when you apply the magnet pattern. Steel Me: this polish is a lot thicker than the others in the collection. My boyfriend had a suggestion to try with these polishes – the Buckyballs (little magnets). It looks like some kind of grid or snake/alligator skin. In the Metallics collection there are also lipsticks and jumbo eye pencils. And here are the swaches of the jumbo eye pencils: What do you think about this collection? Have a nice time!

fuck yeah nail art! I created this tumblr because I always end up browsing for hours before I do a new manicure, and I wanted the world's best nail art available in one place. I'm not into the average art you can get at any corner nail salon, I like the new, crazy, interesting nail art. It's the 21st century, your nails shouldn't look like the 90s! Most of the nails posted are not mine. All nails have links back to their original sources. If you're new to tumblr, you should know that the "fuck yeah" in this blog's title is not meant to offend--fuck yeah blogs are a tumblr phenomenon intended to indicate that the blog is solely dedicated to that single subject.

I don’t know what it’s called either so I haven’t researched it and/or found any other tutorials for it …thus, this is my version of it, and I’ve dubbed it the Partial French Braid w/ Cascading Hair. The photos I’ve seen online show the braid a little more straight across the back of the head and mine sort of braids at an angle, similar to my side/low french braid up-do. I’m sure this is 100% easier to do on someone else’s hair than your own but it goes pretty quickly once you get the hang of it …I mean, it’s my shortest hair video tutorial to date. That’s gotta mean something, right Enjoy. Note: Apologies in advance for the yelling of “NOOOO” towards the end, where I momentarily fear I’m going to lose my entire braid and have to start over.

Iso-Tones - About Since 2008 my vision has been to provide people all over the world with quality brainwave entrainment sessions free-of-charge. Any of these tones can be listened to on your computer, Smartphone, MP3 player or CD player. You do not need headphones for these to work, but I have found them to be useful at blocking out surrounding noise. All isochronic tones are made with Neuro Programmer 2 and for many of the earlier tones I used the guide from as a reference, in addition to studies available through PubMed and Transparent Corporation. Brainwave entrainment allows me to combine my interests in physics, neuroscience, psychology, music, spiritualism and art. In making each session I aim for a balance between effective entrainment and an experience that is aesthetically pleasing. If you would like to ask me a question, share an experience or provide feedback on my work please email meThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Feather Manicure I bought these feathers a few weeks ago and I knew they'd make a gorgeous mani. Here's how to recreate the look. It'll cost you waaaay less than what you'd pay in the salon! You will need: A base color. I chose Essie's Glamour Purse. Two top coats. Before you start, prepare all of the feathers you plan to use by cutting off the ends. Paint on your base color, let it dry, then add a coat of your thick clear top coat. While the clear coat is still tacky, carefully place the feather on to your nail. When that's completely dry, apply a few coats of your fast drying top coat. Once that's dry, use scissors or cuticle clippers to trim off most of the excess feather hanging off the end of your nail. You can remove what's left with a nail file which also leaves you with a nice smooth edge. I like to clean up around my cuticles with pure acetone and a small paintbrush, especially after piling on all that top coat! And here's the result... What do you think of this manicure idea?

Nail Art How To, Images and Designs - Nail Art 101 How To: DIY Leopard Print Nails | Flipping through the September issues of the magazines this year, a feeling of déjà vu has been creeping over me. Hot as the hob of hell for Autumn/Winter 2010 fashion: kitten heels. Pointy toed shoes. Capes. Flared – or at the very least, bootcut – trousers. Anyway, one of the other key trends of the season is Bet Lynch’s favourite print, and since even YSL has tipped the nod to a bit of nail art with Manucure Couture, it looks like AW10′s the time to work a bit of animal magic on your fingertips. No special brushes or pens or other nail art accoutrements? three bottles of nail varnish (a base colour, at least one contrasting colour for the centre of the leopard spots, and a black polish to define their edges);a bit of time; anda reasonably steady hand. Simples! Begin prepping your nails by removing any old nail varnish and filing them into your desired shape. Daub on your spots! It’s time to define the edges with your black nail varnish. Bet Lynch, eat your heart out!

The Founder of FedEx Once Saved the Company by Taking Its Last $5,000 and Turning It Into $32,000 by Gambling in Vegas Today I Found Out the founder of FedEx once saved the company by taking its last $5,000 and turning it into $32,000 by gambling in Las Vegas. The man is Frederick W. Smith who is the founder and current CEO of FedEx. In 1971, Smith took his personal fortune of around $4 million and raised around an additional $90 million to found a delivery company structured such that it could potentially deliver packages overnight to anywhere in the world. This is something that, at that time, had never been done. Smith had first outlined how such a company would operate in a 1962 paper he wrote while at Yale University. Unfortunately, three years after the company began, thanks largely to rapidly rising fuel costs, Federal Express was on the verge of bankruptcy, losing over $1 million a month, with no one willing to give them any additional loans nor any investors interested in contributing capital. It turns out, a few days more was all he needed. Bonus Facts: Expand for References:

Cheetah Printed Nails photos + post by Kristin Ess Cheetah print nails have been around for some time now but we’ve never actually done a tutorial on them. We got a lot of requests after last week’s Mani Monday heart tutorial, so we’re going for it! TOOLS: 2 toothpicks, black nail polish (American Apparel “Hassid”), gold nail polish (American Apparel “Gold Flash”), clear coat. PREP: Use any color your want on the base of your nails. Take your toothpick and tap it on the table or counter a few times to flatten out the tip. Nail strips are great in cheetah print as well, but so often the stores run out of that pattern.

TIPPED OUT - all photos: Kristin Ess + post designed by kristin ess Lots of emails this week asking for a tutorial on Lauren’s temporary bright colors. Here I’ve replicated the process for you in 7 steps on an extension. While I never recommend bleaching out the ends of your hair at home, if you want to do the fun colors yourself, maybe get the tips bleached out by a pro + then play with the temporary colors on your own. TOOLS: highlighting comb, clips, foils, color brush, hair bleach with the appropriate volume (always seek a professional when using bleach), light pink color, dark pink color, light blue, dark blue, clear gloss. Step 1 Highlight the tips of the hair using hair bleach with the correct volume. Step 2 Fold up your foil and let it process until it reaches a pale blonde. Step 3 Shampoo and lightly condition bleach out of the hair. Step 4 Blow hair completely dry. Step 5 Place the hair on a foil. XX Kristin Ess Related posts:
