Anonymous asked: Hi! I've been following you on Instagram for awhile and just found your tumblr! I had a question about using acrylic paint. When I tried to recreate your Hawaiian flowers the paint just faded into the black background. How do you get your to pop? Do you use nailpolish as your back ground or paint as well? Thanks so much and love love love your blog
Yay! You rock! But you don’t have to be on anon!
I totally understand your problem though. It could be the paint or it could just be that you need a few coats of paint. Sometimes I put a coat of white paint under the colors I’m using just to make it look better but other times I do paint multiple coats of the colors. And yes I use nail polish as the base, always! :)
Thanks again! and feel free to come off anon if you have any more questions.
Anonymous asked: hey! I love your account so much! it really has inspired me and now I love to paint my nails! if you dont mind me asking what do you use for your videos and photos? I made my own nail tutorial accout on instagram, and I really want my account to look as professional and amazing as yours! thanks so much! its okay if you won't be able to answer this! I know you're very busy! thanks again!:)
Thank you so much! You really don’t have to be anon though, I would love to see your work!
For both pictures and videos I use my iPhone 5. Nothing special really. To edit my photos I use PicMonkey.com, it’s super easy to use and free. To edit my videos I use the app called “Splice” and then another app called PicPlayPost to make them into a collage.
Feel free to message me for more questions! I’m here to help!
Anonymous asked: can you post a new tutorial (gif style)? i really like those (: xxx
well I’m not sure if you mean the type I’ve made with a collage of videos? if so, I made one of those on “how to gradient” so that should be up soon.

Anonymous asked: What are your favorite nail blogs to follow and how do you get your inspirations? :)
I know this message has been sitting in my inbox for a while and it’s not that I’ve been avoiding it, rather I wanted to have time to sit down and answer it. BUUUUUT. This is too much to think about right now. I love everyone!! I’m actually making a list of blogs I love and that should be up soon.
Oh & most of my inspiration comes from other nail artists. Ideas that come from my own brain aren’t always the best so I prefer to look at the work of others for ideas.
Anonymous asked: Ok so what type of fake nails do you use? I know you paint onto a clear nail but like where do you get them. Would amazon have them?
I’m assuming you’re talking about my nail wheel I use for tutorials? I’m not sure if these are the exact ones I bought but here are some. They’re super cheap and you have like a zillion nails to paint on.
Anonymous asked: Congratulation on your new job! If you don't mind me asking what type of job is it ? And will you still keep uploading pictures of your nail art because your nail art is beautiful !(:
Thank you so much! I work for an after school program in elementary schools. It’s so much fun, I love it already. & I’ll try my very best to keep uploading. It might be a bit spread out but I’ll try to make it work.
