Multi Nails Inc. Watercolour/Animal Print

Hi all, boy have I impressed myself with this nail design!

I saw Jacqui’s Watercolour Nail Art Tutorial over on her blog Crafty Nail and decided to give it a go.

I followed Jacqui’s tutorial and chose 6 Nails Inc. colours for my watercolours.

20130525-012635.jpg I also wanted to do a little design with my Barry M nail art pen over the top of my watercolour.

As Jacqui says, this method is easy peasy lemon squeezy! You literally paint a white base coat, wait for it to dry, then put your coloured blobs on your nail in any position. The next step is to lay your plastic bag over your nail and press lightly to spread the colours out.
This was a few of my plastic bags after I had laid them on top of my polish blobs.

When you remove the bag, the effect reminds me of water marbling but it is a quicker and easier method!

Once I had my watercolour toes, I wanted to add a little something and it had pained me to remove my animal print pedi, so I decided to do a similar design as last time but over the top of my multi watercolour nails. So I did a mixture of leopard and tiger stripes over the top. This is how they turned out:

I am so impressed with the overall result! I absolutely love this design! It’s so bright, summery and unique; every nail is different. This is a new favourite technique of mine – thanks Jacqui!

Rainbow Mani

In the 30 day challenge, I did a sponge gradient for the rainbow day, which I hated as it went all wrong! Because the sun is shining beautifully here in the UK I decided to try my hand at a rainbow mani again. But this time, I did it ruffian style so it looked rainbow shaped.

I used all of my Nails Inc collection to make the rainbow, but Barry M – Blueberry on all my other nails. I could have chosen a better purple, but apart from that it isn’t too bad! To improve this, I would choose a better purple and put clouds and a sun on my other nails.

Nail Challenge Day 22: Neon

Hi beauties, Monday again! It is day 22 in Julie’s 30 day challenge and the theme is neon.

These are my little neon polishes from Primark that I wrote about in an earlier post.. I liked the colours a lot but I wanted something extra so I added the crack effect top coat. From the picture it looks like I used a glossy top coat, but I actually used my matte top coat. I had no idea that it wouldn’t work…how strange! My favourite out of the bunch is the green on my pinky finger.

Nail Challenge Day 3: Yellow

Hi all, welcome to day 3 in Short and Sweet’s 30 day nail challenge ! Today the theme is yellow.

I used Avon 30 second dry ‘suddenly sunny’ polish and used a dotting pen to create the trail of a bumble bee. I then painted a cute little bumble bee on my thumb!

I quite like this mani, the sunny colour is perfect for spring!
