Nail Wardrobe by sugarspicestyle featuring Custom Nail Decals
I'm so excited to present this collection of nail goodies! The DIY Nails custom nail decals are the crown jewels of this compilation! DIY Nails will turn (almost) any picture or words you send her into your own custom nail decals. Send her a picture of your pet (or Karl Lagerfeld's, Choupette), your favorite logo, anything you can think of, and get ready to rock it on your tips! Although DIY Nails is in the UK, she offers worldwide shipping. The kitty decals pictured above are also available for purchase.
I've included two mini nail polish sets, one by Deborah Lippmann and one by Essie. These are perfect for gifting! (And, yes, of course you can gift yourself!) Have the world in the palm of your hands with this DL Run the World (Girls) set of mini brights, available at Bloomingdale's for $45. Deborah Lippmann is much loved since her products are not tested on animals and are non-toxic; the polishes are 3-free, which means they are free of the chemicals toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP. (Bloomingdale's is offering a $5 beauty gift with any beauty purchase over $100).
The Essie 4 pack features the minis of several of the Summer 2012 shades: Bikini So Teeny (sparkling blue), Mojito Madness (green), Fear or Desire (orange), and Off the Shoulder (pink). This set is $17 and is available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, both of which have free shipping (use code JULYFS at checkout if buying from NM). Essie polishes are also 3-free and are not tested on animals (however, Essie's parent company, L'Oreal, does perform animal testing).
Face Stockholm teamed up with J.Crew for a limited edition collection of polishes for summer. This shade, Tulle Time, is a no-fail, year-round classic. Face Stockholm is a Swedish brand, and their stores are fabulous! Although their products are available throughout the U.S., there are only three Face Stockholm stores in the States--all in NYC. Face Stockholm does not test on animals, and they are also 3-free (but identify their 3-free as excluding DPT instead of DBP).
Urban Outfitters sells the above pictured nail stencils by Nail Fraud to make creating shapes for nail art way easier than relying on one's free-hand abilities. These stencils include 8 shapes: butterflies, hearts, crosses, birds, stars, lightening bolts, flowers, and skulls & cross bones. Alphabet stencils are also available, making lettering on your nails a cinch! Unfortunately, I have not tried these adhesive stencils and there are no product reviews, so these might be a bit of a gamble for $10, but they could definitely be worth it!
