La La La La...Elmo Nails (DIY)

Pin It

My daughter has been a BIG HUGE fan of Elmo since she was tiny. Here's a picture of when she turned two. (Notice she had no hair but that didn't stop me from decorating her head!) ha

That year she had a Girly Elmo Party! It was such a fun theme. And these pics were BB & BP..before blogging & before pinterest...:)

When I recently "Pinned" some Elmo inspired nails on Pinterest via Pretty Polishes, she immediately saw it and squealed happily. Then for about 5 days straight asked if we could do Elmo Nails. So here it is..What we used for these sweet nails: red, black,orange, and white polish. Plus a black nail striper polish, and a large & small nail dotting tool.

I recently found a great inexpensive way to buy nail supplies! I simply asked my local nail salon where they buy and they told me. So I found two local nail supply stores called Sunlight Nail Supply, and Hollywood Beauty Supply in Chandler, AZ and love what I found at both shops.

I picked up a pack of nail dotters for $5.00 and a large dotter for $3.50. Plus they sell nail stripers for $2.00, OPI polish for $5, China Glaze $3.00, and nail art stickers fro 1$. I also found nail sticker polish for 1$. The Sally Hansen ones I love are $8.00 at drug stores!

If you're looking for red nail polish, check here with coupons for Overstock.

After your nails are painted red here are the easy dotting steps...

Everyone at my little girl's school went nuts over these yesterday. She was proudly telling everyone "My mommy made Elmo Nails!"....serious cuteness!

How cute would these be at an Elmo party?!..

And now for your Friday funny....You've gotta dance along with Elmo on a Sesame Street spoof of that LMFAO song that seems to be everywhere these days...It's cute..my kids LOVE,,

I'm Elmo and I know it!!!! I make art! Tickle Tickle Tickle Tickle..Ya.

Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful weekend! xo

I'm visiting your blog from the Along for the Ride blog hop. That party is just adorable! It can be kind of hard to make character parties look original and cute, but you did such a great job!
I hope you'll stop by my blog Cupcakes and Candy Canes, sometime!
