I Nailed It!

Every Friday night we of Purple Lipstick have a ritual of doing our nails. It may sound funny but it's probably one of our most girlish  habits lol. Whether we're trying out a random design, bright sparkles, looking for a solid neutral color or going for that dark, bloody red, we have realized that the possible combinations are basically endless.
We've learned that you don't have to go to the nail salon to achieve a "professional" look. There are a variety of nail kits for press-on nails that you can design and shape yourself. There are also stick on, or adhesive designs and patterns that go on your nails in a flash. The best this about doing your own nails is that the most basic thing can turn out to look amazing!


Just randomly doing my nails one day and this was the result



Press-on nails by Kiss: It's a great kit since it come with about 200 nails that come in different sizes.It lasts for a really long time and multiple people can use it. 


Kalila's nails were shaped into a more rounded triangle after they were glued on. I used  a random beauty supply store brand NK in "Taupe Extreme." Though this polish would be considered "cheap" I love it. It's a great color and it actually last longer without chipping than some of the other well-known brands. 


On Jode-Leigh is the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro in Lava Red. It claims to last up to 10 days, but from my experience, even with a top coat it lasts maybe about half of that time. Still, it's a beautiful color and I'd recommend it.
