Tutorial Tuesday – Putting Pictures on Nails

Last week I tried out putting Justin Bieber’s face on my sister’s nails. This time, I’ll show you how I did it! Putting a picture on your nail is actually very easy, much easier than I thought it would be. All you need is a picture (duh!), scissors, your polish of choice and a top coat.

Step 1

Gather your tools! I used Essie’s In the Cab-ana as my base color. It was a gift along with Smokin’ Hot, so expect to see real swatches of both colors soon 🙂 I also had my Essie All In One on hand.

I also grabbed an old Seventeen Magazine to find the picture I wanted on my nails. With the Justin Bieber nail art, we just printed out pictures using a color printer (more on that later), but magazine pictures work just as well!

100 Likes and Birthday Giveaway!

This past weekend we finally reached 100 “likes” on Facebook. The timing couldn’t have been better, as today is Audrey’s birthday! In celebration of your continued support and of Audrey’s special day, she picked out two gorgeous polishes for a giveaway that will open tomorrow!

The pretties up for grabs are:

Jade Galaxy

Jade Diamond – Galaxy

Jade Scarlet

Jade Diamond – Scarlet

The giveaway will run the same way as the last one, with two winners receiving one of the polishes. Unfortunately, it will also only be open to the US and is not an international giveaway. I will update this post with the link when it goes live tomorrow!

Thank you all for your support, and we’re looking forward to many more polish adventures with you!

 

UPDATE

The giveaway has gone live! You can enter via our Facebook page or using this link: http://bit.ly/10gIjKP

Good luck!

Surprises Revealed!

Thank you all for helping me reach 50 “likes” on Facebook! I know to some that number may seem small, but I’m really proud of each follower I gain.

Over the past few months I’ve struggled to provide you all with constant content, and because of this have spent the past couple of weeks thinking about the future of this blog. I would never want to give up, because I love the nail blogging community dearly, but I knew I couldn’t keep a constant stream of content on my own at this point in time.

On that note, I’ve decided to ask one of my wonderful friends to become a co-blogger!

Audrey was one of my first “converts” when I started this blog, and I have had so much fun sharing tips and tricks and seeing the awesome things she has done with her nails. If you’ve been paying close attention, you’d know that I’m a ballroom dancer and that I’ve even referenced some of the other girls on the team. Audrey is one of them and she is super excited to share her love of sparkles with you all! Her first post will be coming soon, so keep an eye out for it!

Surprise #2 is our first giveaway! 50 “likes” seemed like a good enough reason to celebrate, but now we have even more reason thanks to Audrey! In honor of our love of dance, I’ve found two Hits polishes named after two of our favorite dances 🙂

Hits Fox Trot

Good luck to all and thank you for supporting Many Manis!

 

*This is not an international giveaway. It is only open to US residents.

Planning My First Giveaway

I’ve just reached 30 “likes” on Facebook, and while that may pale in comparison to other more established nail bloggers, I’m so proud of each and every one! I’m so proud and happy, in fact, that I’ve decided to do a giveaway at 50 likes. All you need to do is help me get there! I’ll keep you updated on potential prizes (:

So, thank you. Thank you all for appreciating and supporting me. I absolutely love sharing my passion for pretty polishes with you!
