This is another time where I wish nail art kits like this were around when I was a little girl because it would have sure beat that loom I received for Christmas one year…Sorry Mom & Dad. I was just never a loom kind of gal. Bonnie Marcus is THE stationary guru with her company “Where Fashion Meets Paper” carrying a collection of super stylish planners, pocket puzzles, journals, recipe books and now nail design books! The Bonnie Marcus Nail Design Kit ($12.99 USD) is for young girls wanting to learn some simple nail art techniques with fun illustrations and easy step-by-step instructions. There are even some pretty funky nail wraps inside for a quick mani or accent nails and girly pink nail file to shape those claws on the go!
The nail wraps are not made of real nail polish so they will not dry out. They are more like stickers so the wear time will be quite short unless they are sealed in with top coat. Since these nail wraps are for little girls, they might be a wee bit small for some with larger nail beds, but I found that almost all of the nail wraps fit me so if you’re a mom, you and your daughter can probably wear matching manis! Just like with regular nail wraps, use the file to file off the excess wrap at the tip.
Nail shapes! This is the kind of information we still see in fashion magazines so I found this section to be quite useful.
With designs ranging from classic and simple…
To ever slightly more challenging! Notice that a toothpick is used instead of a nail dotting tool as a toothpick is probably something everyone would have in their home already.
Final Verdict: I thought this book was so cute as I loved the illustrations and the use of “real hands” with “real nails”. I thought the nail art designs that were chosen were straightforward, youthful and things that every little girl would want to replicate on her nails if she hasn’t already with other implements. I remember drawing on my nails with pencil crayons, markers and even white out! If I were a parent, I would have no issues with my daughter creating these little works of art on her nails and of course mom can join right in! I have seen the Bonnie Marcus collection in stores before and her flavour and style is really what makes this book stand out and now I get to share this nail kit with TWO lucky readers and their daughters or little girls in their lives!
This giveaway will be for all of North America and will end on Oct.31st!
