Here are my Valentine’s day nails! I have to admit that I’m really lacking in any inspiration for Valentines nail art this year, so this is a rather obvious choice of pink and hearts! 😀
The polishes I used for the gradient are A England Camelot, Color Club Foil Me Once and another Color Club polish called Hot Like Lava. The little hearts are Camelot as the base and Foil Me Once over the top.
Because the hearts where quite pronounced I ended up adding two coats of Seche Vite to flatten it out.
one thing creating this mani has made me realise is, I own way more pink nail polish than I thought… And I should probably use them more often!
Hello everyone! 🙂
Spring Flower Nail Art
Today I have some really easy Spring Flower Nails to show you all! I was going to post this cute mani on Friday, but I ended up not having the time!
The polishes I used are
- Illamasqua – Omen
- Barry M – Shocking Pink
- Color Club – Hot Like Lava
- Sinful Colors – Snow Me White
- Barry M Nail Art Pen – Silver
Omen, Shocking Pink, Hot Like Lava and Snow Me White
This is the first time I have tried Omen, it’s amazing! So green and sparkly! it dries really quickly to a lovely satin finish too!
For the flowers I used a medium and small dotting tool starting with Snow Me White, I used the medium size dotting tool and placed five dots in a circle, then with the small dotting tool i added the Shocking Pink and a final dot of Hot Like Lava in the middle.
Not that you can really see from the pictures, I added leaves and swirly patterns with a silver nail art pen… But as soon as I added the topcoat it all vanished! 😦
I don’t think I have ever experienced vanishing nail art before lol. But I still like this even without the silver!
I have wanted to do some sugar skull nails for ages! And I have finally got the chance to do them 😀
I started with two coats of Poke from Illamasqua. Poke has to be one of my favorite purple varnishes! It’s so vibrant 😀 for the skulls I made decals using this technique here! I used Ivory Skull from Sally Hansen and Hot Like Lava from Color Club along with Konad special polish in black for the stamping!
I used plate BM-413 from the Bundle Monster CYO set. I found that the large skull image was fine for my thumb nail but it was a little bit wide for my ring finger. it took a bit of repositioning the decal before it looked right.
on my other fingers I used one coat of Black Magic from Revlon topped with Chit Chat Pink Glitter!
Sugar Skull nails
I am definitely going to be doing something like this around Halloween! 😀
