This is the first nail art I’ve done that I actually like lately. Everything else I’ve tried in the last few weeks just hasn’t seemed worthy enough. But this one? This one I’m loving the hell out of right now! When I do it again, though, I’m going to use two different colours, because these two aren’t bright enough for me :D
The Olympics are coming to a close so I took my flags off this morning (*sob*). Didn’t want naked fingernails, so I played around and came up with this. Loosely inspired by Madeline Poole’s nails for American Apparel.
Flying The Flag (AKA GO TEAM GB!)
You would not believe how long it’s taken me to do these! I had the idea for this on the day of the Opening Ceremony, but I messed it up and had to re-start. Then the white when all crappy and.. Urgh. ANYWAY, here’s the finished product! \o/
Had nails done again, so we’re back to shorties :) Wanted to do something simple and pretty!
Colours: Maybelline Forever Strong Pro 630 “Dark Denim” and 130 “Rose Poudre”
I’m going to see Queen + Adam Lambert in London on Thursday (I AM EXCITE, YO) and I needed something that would go with my outfit. So I rummaged around in my Box of Tricks(TM) and found two colours that matched my jeans and my top; the turquiose colour is Rimmel’s 825 “Sky High” and the purple is Barry M’s 303 “Bright Purple”
Then I found s-lacquer’s tutorial on Interlocking Dots on my dashboard and I knew exactly what to do! And this is the result! Next time I’ll be more careful with the size of the dots, but I was working quickly tonight so they came out all sizes.
I saw this post by polished-mi and I loved it so much that I just had to try it out myself. Have to say, don’t think I did too badly, considering I had to line it free hand and I’m not that great at freehand things yet. And it’s definitely no-where near as good as the original, but as a first try? I’d say it’s pretty damn sweet :P
In honor of the Queen’s Jubilee. Honestly didn’t expect them to turn out so good!
After many attempts at using nail striping tape, this is one of the designs that I’m actually proud of. It’s still a little rough around the edges, but hopefully with practice I’ll get it perfect :)
Colours: “Navy” by Barry M, “White Out” by Orly.
Colours: “It’s Up To Blue” by Orly, “Blackout” by Rimmel
First post! Trying to figure out how to use this, so you’ll have to bear with me.
This one was created from a tutorial by linda165 on YouTube. Vid is here.
