Valentines day nails with bullion beads

Hello,
Today I want to show you my new Valentines Day Nail Design.
Recently I saw a lot of Caviar Nails so I bought some bullion beads for nail art.

bullion beads for nail art

Some of them are opaque other are transparent. I was really happy with them until I noticed that some colours of the beads are bleeding out after contact with my top coat. It happened when I was adding them onto the nails I made last time. I wanted to upgrade my old design and then the disaster came…

Bleeding out bullion beads

I put purple bullion beads straight onto the wet top coat. When I started to shape the heart in the middle I noticed that purple bullion beads are bleeding out. I was so unhappy because there was no good way to fix this.

Well, the ruined nails are of course not the end of the world. It is a good reason to make new ones ๐Ÿ™‚ So I made this

For the base and the hearts I used acrylic paint. These paint has some tiny lumps in it so the nail surface is a bit uneven. I actually like it because it gives the rustic finish (it reminds me ofย oil paintings on canvas). Than I painted the nails with top coat and put bullion beads (not bleeding ones) on the edges of the hearts.

Nail caviar

To keep bullion beads in place I dropped small amount of polish inside the heart area. This sealed the edges of the bullion beads heart. I was very careful not to pour the polish outside the hearts or over the bullion beads and also to secure every little bead. Then the drying time was sooo long, so I was happy that I made this design on glue on nails not on my natural ๐Ÿ™‚

The one more thing which I don’t like about the bullion beads I bought is that the beads are not equal size. I guess if you are making caviar nails fully covered with bullion beads the difference in beads size is not so important (maybe it is?), but if I make lines with beads I want them equal othervise lines look wavy and not so nice. You can see it on the heart made on index finger nail.

Do you use bullion beads for the nail art? I know that it takes forever to work with them, but I think that the end effect is so lovely!

Thank you for coming!

Valentine’s Day Nails with Hearts

Hello,
I know that it’s middle of January, but I am already thinking about nail designs for Valentine’s Day.
Here is my first one for that day – hearts on nails.

I was thinking that there should not be hearts becouse Valentine’s Day is already full of them, but they keep coming back… so design with hearts it is ๐Ÿ™‚

I think the good idea is to add something more to this nail desing. It looks kind of flat especially on the middle finger nail.

Did you already think about your Valentine’s Day nail design?
Thank you for coming!

St. Valentine’s Day toe nail art

The 14 of February is comming soon so I already made my St. Valentine’s Day nail art design on my toe nails. Here they are.

I used magenta gel. I decided that I must use some kind of pink or red colour. On the big toe nails I embedded in gel violet fimo hearts. They were too big to put them on every nail, so on two of a smaller nails I added little round dazzlings reflecting light.

So what do you think about my simple IN LOVE nails?

I wish you all lovely St. Valentine’s Day!

Almost kawaii glue-on nails

The more I look at kawaii nails the more I like them. They are cute, shiny and always with a lot of things happening on them.

These two nails are not so advanced (and not so cute as proper kawaii nails), just some simple design which everybody can make at home.
The first nail is pained with pink nailpolish and then I added some rhinestones on the top. The second nail is painted with green nailpolish. Then I put an yellow metallic heart on the nail and then glued plastic pearls arround it. To add some more things I put pearly ribbon under the heart. And thats it. Almost kawaii ๐Ÿ™‚
