Valentine’s Day Nail Art

Oops should have posted these sooner.

I was going to do 1-2 other designs but I ended up liking these and didn’t want to take them off so quickly.

Polka Dots & Hearts

Hearts & Dots Nail Art

 

Mosaic Hearts

These were a little hard and didn’t come out as clean but I still like them. I also didn’t even attempt my other hand and just did small hearts on my other hand lol. Looks like 2 different peoples hands haha

Did you do any nail art for Valentine’s Day?

 

Fun Nail Art

I used to post my nails often, I do mostly on instagram . I was feeling uninspired so haven’t really been doing many designs. I thought I’d share some that I’ve done .

I have a few designs I will be sharing for Valentine’s Day 🙂

Dotticure nail art

I love this purple color from SinfulColors. Its Dusty Rose & the dots are Gossip Boss.

nailartessiedotticure

I did this for Christmas time but this would be great for Valentine’s Day as well. I use Essie Life of the Party and a gold ( no name/brand) .

Nail Art

I used SinfulColors Calypso , Accent Nail is Milani Gold Glitz , gold details, no brand/name polish

newspapernails

I did this when I furst got into nail art. Paid your nails white. Take pieces of newspaper ( comics work too!) Dip your nail in rubbing alcohol ( vodka also works) Carefully place newspaper piece on your nail, make sure not to move it. Press down, peel off. Put on a top coat 🙂

pinkblacknails

I used Opi Precisely Pink & Wet N Wild Black . Paint bottom half pink. Take a dotting tool and place dots at the top. I am so bad a straight lines so this helps if your lines aren’t even the dots hide it. Then start in the middle and then the sides.

tropical nails

I did this in the Summer. I loved it and learned a new trick to make colors pop on dark nails. First apply white polish , then your colors.

tribal nail art

Another fun Summer design.

 

Valentine’s Day nail art + new tools

I recently received a nail art kit to review. I couldn’t wait for it to arrive so I could play with it.

It comes with 15 brushes, 5 dotting pens in different sizes , 12 different color gemstones, studs in different shapes ( stars, squares, rectangles, tear drop, circle, diamond, hearts) in silver & gold.

You can grab a set for $10.99 on Amazon from Ruimio

These have made nail art so much easier. No more crooked lines, more precision, easier to do designs.

The gemstones & studs come in a spin wheel case. You just spin the top of it to what color or shape you want and grab them out. No need to worry about them all spilling out.

On my set, I did have a problem with the brushes coming off the handle. Its easy to fix with super glue. Other than that I am very happy with this set.

Since Valentine’s Day is this weekend I decide to do some V-day inspired nail art.

My favorite one I did:ValentineNailArtxoheartsign

and a couple of others:

Easy nail art + DIY matte nail

Glitter Nails

This is super easy & is perfect for everyday , holidays, or party.

Take a nude color ( I’m using Poparazzi Lifes a Beach ) Wait until its dry

Take a makeup sponge, apply the glitter to the sponge and tap on the tips of the nail ( Using Milani Glitter Glitz)

MatteNailsDots

Love a color but want it in matte? Using baking powder you can get the look. Pour some nail polish out and mix a small amount of baking powder into the polish. Mix & apply quickly because it get dry fast. I added dots on top of mine.

anglescolorblock

Im still working on getting lines straight but happy with this angled color blocking design.

Summer nail art part 2

Pop art , color blocking , flamingo

I received some goodies from PinchMe which included a pretty pink nail polish from SinfulColors.

I decided to try a flamingo , I was happy with the results.

Today I received my purchase from modnique
I posted a deal a week and a half ago where you can get a $20 credit which expired.
I bought 3 CULT nail polishes for $.99 ( originally $15)
A lot of items that day were sold out because of the great deal. I really wanted this cute sunflower box for jewelry but was too late.
