Homage to Eman from Nail Polish Distraction. :) She’s another sweet person here on Tumblr. A very talented one, I may add. She always has the cutest themes to her nail art. One of my favorite things about her creations is that she usually does mix manis. :) I love everything she does, and on this particular day, I was feeling girly, so I decided to recreate her “girly nails”. Hope she likes them. <3

I have SOOOOO many more homage manis to do, but just don’t have enough time.. :( This will turn into homage month(s) for me!! :)

Little diamond & stripes..

Little diamond &amp; stripes..

Lately my polish has been chipping like crazy.. :( It doesn’t let me enjoy my designs for more than a day!! It’s really frustrating! I don’t understand because I haven’t changed anything.. :(

This is my routine:
-Remove old polish/oils from the nails
-File & shape
-Lightly buff
-Apply cuticle cream & push back cuticles
-Rinse with warm water & pat dry
-Apply thin coat of base coat (Sally Hansen or Nail Envy) Let dry
-Apply thin coat of desired polish color
-Apply a second thin coat if necessary
-When nails are semi-dry I do my art (or just leave color)
-Apply top coat (Seche Vite, Out the Door, or CG Fast Forward)

I let them dry completely without doing anything (I usually watch a show while I let them dry)

The following day I notice slight chips & throughout the day, my nail polish peels off completely!!
I thought it might be specific products but that’s not the case because I’ve tested out different base coats & top coats & I still get the same results! :(

Any tips/suggestions/feedback? I’d appreciate it! :) Thanks!
