Rock style nails with skulls

Looks like my 3D moulds crazyness continues 🙂 Since I tried them with acryl instead of gel I like them so much. I wanted to use mould with skulls, but I didn’t want to make nails looking too serious. My first thought was (as always) to put a lot of colourful rhinestones on the nails, but I changed my mind and I used holographic black nail polish as a base instead. It kept the dark feeling but also added some light and colours to the design. Then I added white acrylic skulls, sealed everything with top coat and put metal bullions imitating  glowing eyes.

Very easy and fast to make design. Next time I will probably not resist and I will add some glitter and maybe Hello Kitty bows in the top of the skulls:)

Glue-on nails painted with blue and white acrylic paint

I still enjoy wearing my purple gel nails, so I decided to leave them on, and instead decorated some glue-on nails.
I used blue and white acrylic paint.

I used a piece of sponge to apply the paint. The sponge technique gave the nails uneven surface so it looks like paint was splashed on a nail surface. When the paint was dry I painted the nails with top coat.

This is how it turned out.

Shiny zebra

I think zebra pattern is very nice idea for nail design. You can make it by painting black irregular zebra stripes on white nails, or you can also achieve this effect in faster and more easy way. Just try Konad stamps. Here I used Konad plate number m57. On the top of the nails I put big shiny crystal rhinestones. I put them straight on the wet nail polish but if you want to be sure that they will not fall off, you can glue them on with nail glue. Just remember to not cover the rhinestones with top coat becouse they will  loose shininess. Zebra pattern on plate m57 is for toe nails, it may not cover your nail completly if its too long. You can also make colorful zebra pattern with different colors than just black and white. Maybe in some neon colors?

Snow on nails

Christmas is coming soon and even if you cannot have snow outside your window you can always have it on your nails.
These toe nails are painted with transparent nail polish and than sprinkled with white ‘snow’ glitter. Depending on what effect you want you can put one layer of glitter, two or three. Just remember to press it into the nails for better adhensive. On these nails I put two layers. On the top of it I put shiny rhinestones. I put them on wet polish but if you think they may fall off you can use nail glue.’Snow’ glitter looks beautifuly in the sun! It shining like real deep frozen snow. It also looks great with gel nails. You can easily seal it in and obtain a smooth surface. Just remember if you put rhinestones on the top of the nails don’t paint them with transparent nail polish, becouse they will loose their shininess.
