French toe nails with fruits

Hello!

This time I made very simple nail art on my toe nails.
I painted them with baby pink nail polish and made red french tips. The whole design looked a little bit boring so I added some konad stamps. On one toe nail I stamped apple and on another strawberry. Both stamps you can find on plate number m55.
Here are my nails:

How do you paint french tips? I am using nail art pens. It’s very easy. Just one quick move and you have nice thin line.

Have a nice day everybody :)

Baby shower nails

Hello everybody :)

One of my best friends is expecting a baby! Isn’t it sweet?

I thought it would be nice to make special nails for The Baby Shower. But not for my friend, she would never wear fake nails, especially now when she is pregnant. Nails will be for me or another friend who will celebrate this happy moments :)

So I started with a base nail polish. I don’t know if she will have a Girl or a Boy so I chose baby yellow colour.

I don’t use this nail polish so often becouse it doesn’t really goes with my outfits. It’s Essence Naughty but nice. This colour was available in limited edition called Cute as Hell. I think it’s not available anymore.

On the picture you can also see brush which I used to paint the patterns. It’s tiny. I have smaller also, but I cannot find it :)

I was thinking that it would be nice to paint just one pattern on every nail. So here they are:

When I was painting stroller I left too much of empty space in the beginning of the nail, so I added some lace on the edge.

To make patterns I used acrylic paint. On the dark blue elements I added some glittery transparent colour to make it more baby style. On the top of everything I added one layer of top coat to add some shininess.

I am so bad photographer so I couldn’t catch this sparkles from glitter. Maybe on the photo below this effect is stronger. Can you see sparkles?

I cannot wait to show my new nails to my pregnant friend. I think she will appreciate it that I made them for her baby party!

Have a nice day everybody!

French nails with a dark blue cracked ice glitter flakes

Hello everybody!

This time I wanted to use cracked ice glitter flakes. It’s a foil cut into small irregular pieces. The one I used is dark blue, transparent and gives some green and orange reflections.

In a jar it looks like this

I used it to make french nails with flakes added on a smile line. To make the nails more colourful I used also a golden pearl gel. This is how the nails look

In a daylight this gel gives silver shimmer effect with a little bit of warm gold reflections.

In an artificial light it looks gold. I really like this effect!

Unfortunately I cannot take a good picture which shows how exactly this foil shines in the light. I hope you can see the effect.

Have a nice weekend!
