WOW, I just lost a bunch of weight using the OFFICIAL TUMBLR DIET!! Are u using it as well? check it out at TumblrHealthDiet[d0t]com
I couldn’t imagine losing weight with a Tumblr Diet.
I’d imagine it would consist of endless scrolling and eating.
I had this random idea that I think would be really cool. I’m always having dreams of a Nail Art Con or “meet and greet”, but I’ll spare you (again).
I was sitting here and thought of doing some sort of fundraiser! I’m not sure what could be done with it, whether it be selling nail art sets or organizing an event of breaking the Guinness world record of people simultaneously painting their nails, but the proceeds could go to a foundation (or multiple foundations) — for diseases, children, women, anything! I think it would be really cool.
What would be even better is if a bunch of nail artists came together to do this! It’d be an awesome way for those in the Nail Art community to collaborate and develop an even stronger bond with one another. It would be interactive and fun!
Just a simple and bright, wavy grid look!

Thank you! I've been wanting to try the foils for ages, but I was so afraid that the moment a top coat touched them, they would be ruined, and it would be money wasted.
You’re welcome! You know, people get a little uptight about the wrinkling and some can overemphasize it. To be honest, unless you can apply that foil PERFECTLY — no missed spots or anything — it’s not going to be a perfect mirror effect. Personally, I think the wrinkled effect can look nice, especially with foils such as Fuchsia Fantasy, Silver Crush, and Tie Dye Surprise (foils with a more randomized or intricate pattern). To me, it comes down to personal preference and trial and error. If you have any more questions about them at all, let me know! I’d be more than happy to help. :)

Hi! I saw your collection of Dollar Nail Art foils,and I was just wondering, how do you like them? I know about them wrinkling up with topcoats, but I just wanted to get another opinion before I considered buying them. Also, I was reading your FAQ, and Llarowe is a great store that offers nail polish from all over the world.
Hi there! I absolutely adore my foils. Dollar Nail Art has such a great selection with a variety of choices (and it’s inexpensive, yet high quality). I have yet to have a bad experience with the foils. So… Buy them!
As far as wrinkling, it’s going to happen with nail foils in general (I’m not talking about Minx; I don’t consider them foils). The one thing I’ve learned is that the foils will wrinkle a lot less if you use a cheap clear polish. Then you can put your shiny top coat over it. If you use the ‘fancy’ top coats directly on top of it, I’ve noticed that it wrinkles and crackles so much! However, you don’t want any wrinkles at all, there are top coats specifically made for nail foils. I can’t say whether or not they actually work, but you can search the Internet for them.
And you are a life saver. I’ve never heard of Llarowe before, but they have such a huge variety! Thank you!
Since I’ve been on Tumblr, I have witnessed fellow artists’ works being taken by others and not getting the proper credit they deserve. I, for one, have also been in that position, where people have taken my work and were given the credit and praise for the ‘hard work’ of copy and paste and editing watermarks.
A while back I touched on the subject, but this problem is progressively getting worse. Adding even more editors that aren’t doing things correctly is not solving the problem. Tumblr needs to look into the editors and find the ones that are featuring the wrong nail art. By wrong, I mean the ones that are incorrectly attributed. Or make editors out of the ones who know how to properly credit artists and will feature posts that do so (I have no idea if that’s possible, but, hey, it’s a good start).
This is something that has bothered me for so long. I need to save this for a nice, long rant, yes?
My hell is coming to a close. Just today and tomorrow, and I hope to start getting back into the game!
Thank you for still putting up with my absence!
Courteous anons in real life
‘Tis begun. Exams on exams on exams… And projects. All this week.
I can almost guarantee you that I won’t be posting any nail art this week, unless some miracle happens. However, I can still answer your questions like I’ve been doing all week, no matter how relevant or odd they are! ANONS, now’s your chance.
I hope to be back next week!
For those that send me messages asking, “Why did you abandon us?!” I’m not trying to! Here’s what’s going on:
I have had NO days off since last Sunday. I won’t get another day off until this Saturday.
Let’s throw in the fact that I still go to college.
One of my jobs “lost” my paycheck.
Of course, I go to get a second cup of coffee while my brothers were visiting from out of town and we get rear ended. Thankfully nobody else was hit or injured in any way!
Sorry for being so absent from here, there’s just a lot going on!
I finally got the prize together for the contest, so I should get that going soon!
Hope everyone’s had a great week! :)
