We were recently asked to host a HUGE #IHeartMyNailArt Girls Night featuring Sally Hansen fingernail polish & featuring the fun Color Blocking fingernail painting technique! Hang tight I’ll be sharing a Color Blocking tutorial in just a bit. ;) Since I have a tween daughter we decided to turn it into a fun Tween Fingernail Polish Party, & boy was it a HIT! It was so much fun….so keep reading for all the fun details. :)

Sally Hansen products at Walgreens

Before you can have a par-tay you’ve got to run to the store to grab some supplies, right? So I headed to Walgreens with my daughter to pick up everything we needed for our HUGE party! You can check out our entire shopping trip over on google+. I love that Walgreens has the Balance Rewards card program.  I saved almost $30 bucks…cha-ching! That’s awesome! :)

The next day while my daughter was in school I got ready for our party! I had found this cute cupcake stand for a $1 at a party store, & it worked perfect for holding all of our Sally Hansen fingernail polish. I also worked on the goody boxes for our guest.

Inside each box was a color blocking kit for each of our  guest to take home! It included two nail polishes, some washi tape, chevron fingernail vinyl I cut with my Silhouette & some chocolate just for fun. :)

If you’ve never heard of color blocking your nails don’t worry! I’ve got a quick tutorial on two ways your can color block your nails! It is so much fun!  Basically color blocking is using two or more colors of fingernail polish on your nails in a geometric pattern.

Chevron Nails with Vinyl:
1. Paint your nails. Let them dry for at least 20 minutes. (You don’t want the vinyl to pull off your nail polish!)
2. Then apply the chevron vinyl to your nails.  I had to trim it down. My nails aren’t that long! ha!
3. Then paint your second color of fingernail polish over the top. Carefully remove the vinyl…now you’ve got a fun chevron print on your nail. I heart nail art! :)

Two ways to color block your nails #IHeartMyNailArt

Two Color Nails with Washi Tape:
1. Paint your nails.  Just like above…let them dry for 20 minutes.
2. Use a strip of washi tape to block half of your nail, & then you’ll paint on the second color.
3. Carefully remove the washi tape. You’re done! :) Now you have some sweet stripes on your nails. You can purchase Walgreen nail items online by clicking through that link! ^^^ :)

OK…now that we’ve got the tutorial out of the way…it’s time for our Par-Tay!  We really couldn’t have our party at night time…it was a school night! ha! So we ended up having our party right after school.  When the girls got there I had cookies & milk from Walgreens all ready for them. Since it was right after school it was the perfect choice of refreshments for our party.

Taping the paper straws to the milk with washi tape was the perfect touch. So cute!

The girls had so much fun painting their nails & trying out all the colorful Sally Hansen nail polish. They caught on to the color blocking technique pretty quick. They also had fun with the Sally Hansen Nail Polish Pens & other products, too.

After the girls finished their fancy nails they had fun in our “photo booth”. I just hung a table cloth to the side of our house with duck tape. I had a basket of fun accessories for them to use as props. It was a HIT, and the girls loved it! :)
