Fun with Barbie Nail Designer

January 11, 2011 at 11:14 am 1 comment

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.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
