Polymer Clay Nail Art?

I had never heard of polymer clay nail art, until a few days ago, when it was written about on Polymer Clay CraftGossip. It is so interesting and quite pretty! You have to check it out. I also googled "polymer clay nail art", and found an interesting blog post from The Polymer Clay Tutor on the subject. Here is another post from the Polymer Clay Tutor on how to make the teeny tiny canes used in nail art.

C.A. Therien has a great selection of nail art canes and slices on her website. She also explains how to apply them.
Very, very interesting!

Wow, I've never heard of that either. They look fun, though. Your blog is great, too!

Thanks!

...and if you buy the pre-sliced canes, it doesn't seem that hard to do either!

Ok, girl! I just spent 30 minutes lost in Flicker land because of you! LOL! Your polymer clay creations are so sweet! I have all the supplies and none of the talent:) How long does un-opened clay last? Do you want all my stuff? I've got the pasta machine and clay and rollers and clay and molds and clay. It is so much fun, but my foray in to clay art was pretty sad. I have a blog post about it. I think it's called "Bad Art" or something like that! LOL!! Let me know about the supplies. You are welcome to them if you want them. Just email me at askarteology@yahoo.com

Love, Jamie

This whole nailart phenomenon is something, isn't it?! It's pretty fun coming up with cane designs that will shrink down that tiny. Funny thing is since I'm the type to make things with my hands I personally don't get many opportunities to wear such fancy nails. Love to make them for someone else though!

Thanks for mentioning my blog threemoonbabies! ~Cindy Lietz

The content you have provided is pretty interesting and useful.

Today while I was surfing the Internet, I read about Gel Nails being the latest trend now in the nail fashion industry. After
reading about gel nails, I think it’s a great way to dress up your nails giving them a trendy look.

I thought this information might be useful for anyone looking for genuine nail decoration stuff and may not know where to buy
them from.

The content you have provided is pretty interesting and useful and I will surely take note of the point you have made in the blog.

Today while I was browsing the Internet and looking out for something sporty and trendy to decorate my nails with, I came across this site Gel-nails and found so many interesting nail products for decorating my nails. The best part is that this site has so much variety and also the prices are very reasonable for the quantity offered.
