Hey everyone! I’m changing the name of my blog from “REW Does Nails” to “RachBeth Nails.” That’s it, I’ll hopefully start posting more really soon, but I’m still around haha.
Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been away for a while! I had my first day of work on Monday, and it’s going well so far! I’ve finished all of my online training already (yay!) and I’ve had a few in-person training sessions (and many more to go haha). I also started shadowing people on Friday and that will continue for a while as well. I’m still trying to get settled and figure everything out, so I probably won’t be posting much this week as well.
Today’s nails are representing Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I started with a coat of Orly Nail Defense. I then applied two coats of Julep – Lilou. I then applied a piece of striping tape down the center of my nails and then used hole punch reinforcers and Julep – Monaco to create the stripe and the top part of the dress. I then used a striping brush and Julep – Margot to line the blue part of the dress and the line up the center. I then applied a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat over my entire nail. Thanks for reading, have a great week!
Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been away again. I graduated on the 17th of May and then my parents and sister were here for the following week. And we looked for apartments because I got I job! I had a job offer from a job fair that I went to in April, but I was officially hired on Tuesday and I start on Monday! It’s my first real job and it’s in my field. I’m really excited/nervous to start. I’m also excited to move into my new apartment (the lease at the house I’m living at now is up in July and I’m moving to my new apartment in June). Because of my job and moving, I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to do/post nails, but once I figure out my schedule, I’ll let you know.
Today’s princess nails are representing Jasmine from Aladdin. I was aiming to recreate Jasmine’s costume (specifically, her pants). I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied three coats of Julep – Jeanne on the lower area. I then applied a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat. The colors aren’t quite right, but the general idea is there. Thanks for reading, have a great weekend!
Hey everyone! Sorry for taking yet another break, but I graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Family Studies and Human Development on Saturday!! My parents, sister, grandpa, and Louis got into Tucson on Thursday after driving all day from Sacramento (I didn’t get to see them until Friday though because I had a final that I was working on when they got in and I was too tired to drive to my grandparent’s house to see them after my final). On Friday, there was a little get-together at my grandparent’s house and then my sister and I stayed the night at my house so we could get up in the morning and she could do my hair without being rushed. I had two graduations on Saturday (my college graduation and then the big university-wide commencement). All of Saturday is kind of a blur and the only part I really remember is the fireworks from the end of the big ceremony haha. I’m staying at my grandparents’ house while my family is here (until Friday or Saturday morning), so I won’t be able to post Disney Princess Nails until sometime next week. Here are some pictures from graduation:
My nails for graduation matched my cap that I decorated. I used a coat of Orly Nail Defense for my base coat. I then applied two coats of OPI – I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw for my base color. Once that dried, I applied striping tape diagonally and then applied two coats of Zoya – Chyna. I then applied a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat. Thanks for reading!
Hey everyone! I hope you’ve had a good week so far! I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday, this week has been going by so slowly (although that may be because I’m looking forward to graduation on Saturday). I’m going to start really studying for my final today and continue tomorrow and then I’m completely done with my undergraduate career.
Today’s nails are representing Tiana from The Princess and the Frog. I don’t really like how they turned out (the colors aren’t quite right, but they were the closest I had), but I think they’re okay. I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied two coats of Zoya – Josie, I then applied a coat of China Glaze – Fairy Dust. I then applied hole punch reinforcers like I did in my Cinderella nails and applied a coat of Julep – Courteney. I then used painter’s tape to create a triangle at the tip of my nails and applied Julep – Lilou. I then applied a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast top coat. Thanks for reading, have a great day! 🙂
Hey everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was pretty good! I found a dress for graduation (in the first store we looked at! yay!). I can’t believe I graduate on Saturday! I’m excited for that and that my parents, sister, and grandpa will be here on Thursday or Friday (and they’re bringing Louis too [my chihuahua]). I still have nothing important to do until Thursday night, so I have more Netflix and nails in my future haha.
Today’s nails are representing Belle from Beauty and the Beast, specifically the dress she wore in the ballroom dancing scene. I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied three coats of OPI – OY – Another Polish Joke. I then used a hole reinforcer and Julep – Lilou for the top part of the half moon design. I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast top coat. Thanks for reading, have a great day!
Hey everyone! I hope you had a good week! I’ve finished almost all my course work (I just have 1 final left on Thursday)! Now I have nothing to do during the day (well, nothing that I have to do anyway). I guess I can use this time to watch Netflix and paint my nails distraction-free haha. I’m going shopping with my grandma to (hopefully) find a dress to wear for graduation next Saturday. I’m not really a fan of shopping, so hopefully I’ll be able to find something I like.
Today’s nails are representing Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. I chose to represent the parts of the film where Flora and Merryweather are changing the color of Aurora’s dress from pink to blue (making the dress, ending).
For my nails, I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I applied two coats each of OPI – Kiss Me I’m Brazilian (pink) and OPI – Can’t Find my Czechbook (blue) on alternating fingers. I then used the splatter technique (blowing nail polish from a straw) with the color opposite to the base color. I topped each nail with a coat of China Glaze – Fairy Dust and then a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast top coat. Thanks for reading, have a great weekend! 🙂
