Cosmoprof Sneak Peek – Art Club Glam

Coming soon from Color Club/Art Club are these nail decals, called Glam, that are along the lines of Minx but way cooler.  The designs are on a clear background so you can apply them over polish and have the color show through. 

According to the rep I spoke with, you simply apply them and add a top coat.  They last until you take them off with remover.  The plaid and metallic animals prints have me intrigued.  I’m normally not a nail art girl but this looks easy enough that even a klutz like me could do it.

What do you think? Is this something you would try, I’ll update you with launch info as soon as I have it.

GingerKittyDesigns In Nails Magazine

gingerkittydesigns-nails-magazine Congratulations to my pal Tracey from GingerKittyDesigns whose Etsy shop was featured in the August issue of Nails Magazine!

Nails did a feature on Etsy stores that sell nail related crafts, perfect for resale in salons or as a gift for the nail tech/fanatic in your life.  If you click on the article (left) you can read the full size version with Tracey’s jewelry pictured on the side.

The other stores that made the list are Sweetheartville, SavDesigns by Vrjinika, The Bohemian Gypsy, Claychicks Boutique and Scentful Indulgence Bath & Body Boutique.

I actually bought a nail themed business card holder from The Bohemian Gypsy and it arrived today.  So cute!

Last year I shared Tracey’s unique line of nail polish jewelry and I’m so happy to see getting the attention it so deserves.  Tracey brilliantly came up with the idea of encapsulating nail polish in a pendant and since then she has expanded into rings and earrings and started incorporating trends like water marbling into her craft.


A fellow nail polish fanatic and collector, Tracey has amassed quite a selection of colors to choose from and can customize any of her designs to your liking. If you haven’t stopped by her shop and picked up a piece for yourself or the Fanatic in your life, it’s time you do so!
