Violet swirled french tip nails

Hello!
Today I have for you some swirled french tip nails.

The base colour is NYC In A New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nailpolish – Prince Street. It’s a really beautiful dark violet/purple. On the nails there are three coats. Unfortunately to get the stunning colour like in the bottle, three coats are needed. White swirled tips are made with acrylic paint.

Picture above is taken in warm artificial light when the polish releases tiny pink sparkles. I like this look a lot. It’s not a glittery look, just a little bit of extra shine.

Thank you for coming!

Christmas nails

Hello!
It is already this time of the year when all the nail blogers are posting their christmas nail designs. Everybody come up with their ideas, so do I. Here is my christmas nail design for this season – simple nail art with Holly.

As a base coat I used one of my favourite reds - H&M RED NAIL. Hollies are painted with acrylic paint with a green glitter sprinkled on them. After application of a top coat I added red rhinestones imitating red berries of the Holly shrub.

The leafs don’t need to be symetrical which makes this design fast and easy to make.
I took the pictures in different light to try to show the green glitter, but unfortunately it is not so easy to see it. I must work more on my taking the photos skills. Maybe it is a good New Year’s resolution? :)

Thank you for coming :)

Blue nails with rhinestones

Hello,
Today I have for you some simple design made on glue on nails.

As a base I used blue acrylic paint. Than made oval white shapes on each nail. When the white paint dried I noticed that it’s a bit transparent so white turned into very light blue. On the top of ovals I added tiny glitter – let it sparkle :)
When paint was dry I applied top coat and sticked blue rhinestones straight on the polish.

That’s it :) I hope you like this design.

Thank you for coming!
