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 πŸ™‚

Dotticure nail art

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

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 πŸ™‚

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.

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:

Valentines Day Nail Art

I was still deciding if I should add the lines to my thumb which is why its blank in this photo.

I saw this on pinterest, thought it was a cute and different idea than just doing hearts.

I had to mix Rimmels Pink Punk withΒ  Wet ‘n’ Wilds white to get a lighter pink. The red heart didn’t show up.

For the heart I used Rimmels London Speed Dating and the lines Black Satin.

I used a bobby pin and pen with no ink to draw πŸ™‚
