Toe Nail Design with NYC – In A New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nailpolish – East Village

Today I have for you some toe nail design and swatches of a nail polish I used to make it.
So here are the toe nails

I used black nail polish under NYC – In A New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nailpolish – East Village.

On some of the nails I added shiny dazzlings and painted swirls with white acrylic paint.

Over the white paint I added tiny glitter, but unfortunately I cannot see it on the photos.

And now the swatches of the NYC – In A New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nailpolish – East Village.
In the bottle it has amazing colour, but when I first time painted my nails with it I was totally dissapointed. To get the colour similar to the one you see in the bottle you need to apply 3 or 4 coats. It is also difficult to get even coverage because of the thick formula. But if you paint it over the black base you get something amazing! Only one coat of East Village gives the iridescent effect like on the peacock feathers. Depending on the angle of view colour is changing from blue to beautiful glowing green.

1 – one coat of East Village over the black base
2 – two coats of East Village over the black base.
3 – three coats of East Village without colour base.

Thank you for coming!

Lavender nails


Do you like lavender? I love the colour of these flowers so I made lavender nails.

The background and the flowers are painted with acrylic paint. To add a glossy finish to the nails I painted them with top coat.

Nails with tulips

Hello everybody!

Here are my new nails with tulips.

For this nail design I used only acrylic paint. I didn’t use any shiny top coat so the nails are matte (except a little bit of gloss on the petals).

I wanted to paint them with top coat but I was afraid that the tulip petals will loose this tiny grooves made by the brush.

Thank you for coming and have a nice weekend!

Hibiscus nails

Today I am posting my Hibiscus Nails. Do you like these flowers? I think they are adorable. I think that hibiscus nail art is quite popular right now. I saw stamps, nail stickers and fimo with hibiscus pattern.
These ones are free hand painted.

The flowers are made with acrylic paint, the background is made with a regular nail polish. When the paint was dry I added two coats of top coat.

Painting hibiscus flowers was great fun for me so I guess I will make some more nails with this pattern.

Thank you for coming 🙂
