Lisa Frank nails

Hello. Today is the last of my Childhood Favorite things manis. I don't know about you but one of my FAVORITE things, even now, is to buy school supplies. Yes, I'm a nerd lol. One of my favorite things I had in the 5th grade was my Unicorn trapper keeper by Lisa Frank. I begged my Mom to buy it for me and being the spoiled rotten only child that I am, what Mama's baby wants, Mama's baby gets.

I loved all things Lisa Frank, truth be known, I still do. All of my nail art ideas are written in a Lisa Frank Composition book lol. I buy LF stuff for my daughter all the time too, it's just so fun and bright and cool. How could someone NOT like Lisa Frank????

So, here are my Lisa Frank inspired nails. They are pretty much the bomb if I do say so myself ;)





To do this Rainbow Gradient I used THIS tutorial by Plasmaspeedo on youtube. It's SO easy and is such an awesome effect. The Polishes used were China Glaze Pool Party, China Glaze Sunshine Pop, Sinful Colors Why Not and Julep Helena. The green was made during the sponging by the mix of yellow and blue polishes. If you love Rainbows you have GOT to try this technique. You're going to love it I promise. She says to sponge over the colors several times to get it brighter. I think i sponged over mine at least 5 times, maybe more, I forgot to keep up lol.

I will be leaving to go on vacation this morning with my family. I have several posts scheduled for next week though. If you email me or leave comments I promise to get back to you as soon as I can. Have a great weekend. I really hope you enjoyed my posts this week. XOXO

  6. This is awesome! I LOVED Lisa Frank. I has an art kit with like stationary and pencils and stuff. You should read about her on Wikipedia. It's kinda crazy, but really interesting. My cousin and I want to find the Lisa Frank office because of the Wikipedia description.
