When Sally Hansen offered to sponsor a nail polish party for me and my girls I was like:
“So … you want to pay me to hang out with my friends? Um, YES!”
We created Color Block designs and had a blast.
I hit up Walgreens because they were having a huge sale on Sally Hansen
for Balance Reward card members (and we all know this mama loves a deal.)
There were also coupons – so each bottle was only $4/each!
I saved 30% off my supplies – now that’s a deal!
I set up a nail station at my dining room table (which is located in my living room)
I loved the rainbow of color!
Not only did I have a rainbow of nail polish, but I also had drinks and Gluten Free food.
The gift bags included a nail file, nail polish remover, and a bottle of nail polish.
Everyone had so much fun finding inspiration on Pinterest and Google from their phones.
And look at the amazing designs!
We simply taped our nails with regular Scotch Tape to create the designs.
My friend Kira was the most ambitious in her design, and it totally paid off, check this out:
We learned a few things:
1. You MUST let one coat be dry before you apply the tape for another coat or the tape will lift off the first coat.
2. To test if your nail polish is dry, gently tap two painted nails together – if they feel tacky, then wait longer.
3. If you have slight irregularities in the lines, simply use a nail pen to draw a line over it (outline) and it will appear straighter.
4. If you use the pens, use a top coat or the color will wear off completely within a few hours.
I had so much fun with my girls. I ate way too many sweets and tried new colors combos – coral and mustard (ha, my hubby saw it later and said, “You realize you made your nails look like Candy Corn, right?”). It was so much fun!
