I’m really enjoying trying out new (to me) nail art techniques, I realized that by only doing nail stamping I was missing out on loads of other fun nail art stuff! So here is another first for me, Waterfall nails!
Silver Waterfall Nails
I used, Deborah Lippmann – Modern Love, Deborah Lippmann – Hit Me With Your Best shot, Sinfulcolors – Time Off, Illamasqua – Snap, Nails Inc – Old Bond Street, Barielle Shades – Night Moves and China glaze – Cosmic Dust.
I started with a base colour of Modern Love from Deborah Lippmann, starting with the darkest colour using a fine brush, I painted on the stripes, making sure that each colour has stripes of different lengths.
It took quite a while to finish but I really love how this turned out! and I’m going to be trying this again with different colours! 😀
Here is another first for me! Galaxy Nails! 😀
I used loads of nail polishes for this, I started with a base of Vamp Polish From Eyeko, then using a tiny bit of sponge I added a little bit of Blackened Bleu from Barielle shades and Alias from color club. Blackened Bleu is a lovely black jelly with dark blue and turquoise glitter, Alias is a dark blue jelly with purple duo-chrome glitter, it’s really pretty!
At this point it looked like a patchy gradient, after it had dried I added Gorgeous from sinfulcolors this polish is a bright turquoise metallic with a light gold sheen and secret agent from color club which is a light purple metallic polish. I put a drop of each polish next to each other onto an old plate and picked up both colours with my trusty bit of makeup sponge, and added a tiny bit to each nail.
when it was all dry I used Night Moves from Barielle shades for the stars, and the fine holo glitter is Sparkling silver from no.7
I finished it with a coat of fast dry topcoat from color club.
This is my first attempt at braided nails! And I’m really pleased with the result! 😀
For this I used Vamp Polish From Eyeko, Steel of the Night from Color Club and Night Moves from Barielle.
I did have a few issues with the brushes being different sizes, so next time I try this I’ll stick with one brand of polish!
Behold! My spooky spider Halloween nails! 😀
I started off with a couple of coats of Happy Ending from Sinfulcolors which is a bright green with gold shimmer, when it was dry I used the cling film technique with Emerald City Which is a sparkly Matte polish from Revlon, I followed that with a coat of Seche Vite.
The spiderweb image is from Moyou from the Pro Collection XL 05 I used Night Moves from Barielle Shades, I find that It’s a really good silver polish for stamping, then another coat of Seche Vite.
For the spiders I used Konad special polish in black and my unbranded Halloween plated that I picked up on ebay, they are not the best quality but I like the images 🙂 And then, yes you have guessed it, another coat of SV. I like to use SV in between each layer of stamping in case I mess up the next image, this way I can carefully take off the offending bit of polish with a cotton bud dipped in acetone with out having to start again 🙂
Green Halloween Spider
Continuing with my little challenge of using some of the stamping images that I haven’t used yet here is another image from the Moyou XL Suki Collection 06 plate.
Moyou Suki Collection Plate 06
This is a really lovely image, it was really easy to transfer onto my nails 🙂 It’s one my favorite images from this plate and I’m glad I got to use it for this 🙂
The silver foil polish is Night moves from Barielle Shades, for the stamping I used Konad Special stamping polish in black (I really have to buy some more) and a coat of Seche Vite.
Silver and Black Half Moon Nails
For this I used three polishes, Coalest Day of the year and Night Moves Both from Barielle Shades and Black on Black from sinfulcolors (I really need to get another bottle soon)
I started with two coats of Night Moves which is a lovely bright silver foil. after waiting for it to dry, I used my trusty Ring binder hole reinforcements to create the half moon shape.
Then using Black on Black, Coalist Day and a bit more of the night moves I sponged on the gradient. this took three thin coats. while the polish was still wet I carefully removed the hole reinforcements with tweezers, then applied a coat of Seche Vite!
