Fun with Barbie Nail Designer
Even with a few technological glitches the Barbie Nail Design printer program has (use your search engine for reviews), this program is a lot of fun for girl time once you get it going. My daughter and I have dolled up, and we’ve given my Mom a manicure.
You have to choose your designs carefully. Getting it to print 100% centered on your nail is pretty impossible. Pick designs where it doesn’t matter if it’s “exact” and have fun with it!
If you want to have tips like a french manicure, I recommend letting the printer print your base pattern, then adding the tips with Wal*Mart nail pens. You can always have ‘someone do your dominant hand for you…I did mine, but they were a bit shaky, but not too bad.
Price: It was my daughter’s “big” entertainment gift this year, otherwise priced too high in my personal opinion (around $180). But, a lot of fun and we’ve used it about every week since Christmas. At 12 years old, we were running thin on gift ideas and she really wanted this. It’s stirred a lot of conversation and interest and she’d loved playing with it…probably more than any gift we’ve gotten them, with exception of their iPod Touches.
Base nail polish: The ink shows up best with white, pearl, or silver nail base. I’d like to try a lime green, but haven’t yet. I’ll add more pics as we try new things.
