Lol the title for this one is a bit cheesy I know. But there’s triangular shapes involved and groups of 3 so I couldn’t help myself.
I started by painting all nails in 2 coats of a coral colour.
Then I made the coral into a triangle shape with the point going towards the tips by painting 2 silver triangles at the sides of each nail.
Next I added 3 rhinestones to each nail. I added them on top of the coral colour.
I used 3 differing sized rhinestones, with the largest near the base and the smallest towards the middle of the nail.
The pretty thing about these rhinestones is that they have a subtle multi tonal/multi coloured finish to them.
I think this is probably one of my favourite smoothie combinations. I like to only add a little juice to this one so that it stays nice and thick in consistency. I used one whole mango, one papaya and a little mango juice. I then blended everything together.
I’m not really sure what I wanted to achieve with this design other than I wanted to use the colours black and red, but I did not want the tips to be the standard boring ‘straight’ tip like you would do for a French manicure. The problem was that I was short on time.
Therefore I ended up with these squiggly line kind of tips. The final result reminded me a little of flames hence the title of this post. I love how the above image reflects my camera in it lol (which is also red by the way).
I painted all nails black, except for the ring fingers, which I did in red. I used a bright red that had a little shimmer to it.
On the ring fingers I then added a line of 3 black rhinestones.
On the tips of the rest of the nails, I used a smaller nail brush to add the squiggles/flicks in the red colour. I think i should have used a even thinner brush though to make it look better.
This has given me the idea to try and do some proper flame nails in the future sometime using shades of yellow, orange and red.
This one is a lot better than last week’s milkshake for the simple fact that it has Nutella in it lol. I simply blended 5 strawberries with milk, 1 heaped teaspoon of Nutella and one heaped desert spoon of vanilla ice cream.
I’m really pleased with how this one came out and it wasn’t much effort to achieve either.
I painted all nails except the ring finger in a bright shimmery pink shade. On the ring fingers I used a metallic nail polish that was kind of between a gold and bronze colour.
On the ring fingers I then used a flakie glitter over the top. This was made up of goldish and light pink flakes.
Over this I then added a few nail art gems in pink shades. A heart one in the middle and then normal round ones to the sides.
On the pink nails I sponged on the metallic shade, starting from the tip and working up to the middle of the nail.
I then added the same flakie glitter polish over the top of the metallic gradient area for a bit of extra glam.
For this I used 5 strawberries and 1 passion fruit, which I blended with milk. If you feel the taste is lacking a bit, then I suggest adding 1 teaspoon of sugar. Alternatively you could add a big dessert spoon of vanilla ice cream, which I personally prefer to do.
So for this one my plans were to have a multicoloured background underneath the crackle. However I think the colours I chose were too dark and similar for them to show through once the crackle was applied. Either way I thought I would still share it with you as overall it still looks pretty.
I painted all nails in 2 coats of a dark blue.
Then I used both a dark purple and green shade and made sure to remove most of the excess on the brush. I placed random streaks of each colour on each of the nails.
At this point you could see the differences in colour. However I then added a white crackle over the top of everything and soon realised that the colours I had used were too close to each other to really see much difference.
In the photos, it is not visible at all really, but when I looked close in reality you could see some colour differences in places. I definatley want to have another go at this one.
For this one I used half a cantaloupe melon, 10 strawberries and then blended it all with some cherry juice. I find melon blends very well and so is good for smoothies.
For this design I used 3 colours from Barry M’s Silk Nail Effects range, but it would work great with a mixture of colours and finishes. I was after a subtle design this time, but a mix of light, dark and bold colours would look great also.
I first painted all nails in 2 coats a lilac shade called heather and let this dry very well.
Then I used striping tape to tape off a triangle shape from the top of the nail and having the point of the triangle land around 90% of the way down the nail. I did this on all nails and filled it in with a white shade called pearl before removing the tape.
I again gave this plenty of time to dry. Then I used striping tape again, but this time to make a triangle of a smaller size starting from the bottom of the nail and going upwards. I did this across all nails.
This time I used a brownish shade called truffle before removing the striping tape and adding top coat. I was left with a design where the triangles overlapped each other in the middle.
For this one I used one whole mango, 2 passion fruits and then blended it all with some cherry juice. I love how the colour turned out in this one thanks to the cherry juice.
