Blue Stripes Nails

This design is a blue themed design with a striped detail.

I started by painting the index and little finger nails in 2 coats of a shimmery light blue polish.

On the remaining nails I used 2 coats of a dark blue polish.

I then used a dense blue fine glitter polish and a thin striping brush. On the thumbs I placed 1 line going down either side of the nail. On the other dark blue nails I just placed 1 stripe on 1 side.

To complete the design, I then used the same brush and a white polish to place 2 lines going down either side of the nail in the remaining space on the dark blue nails.

I then added a few lines at random angles in between these 2 lines.

Bronze Stripes Nails

This simple design is easy to create and works well with short nails.

I started by painting all nails in 2 coats of a bronze fine shimmer polish.

I then took a thin nail art brush and a white polish to paint a diagonal line across one for her at the base of the nail.

I then placed a second line next to this one.

I completed the design by repeating the same pattern of 2 stripes across each of the remaining nails.

Dotticure Rain Nails

This design is a blue themed dotticure design.

I started by painting all nails in 2 coats of a bright shimmery blue shade.

I then used a metallic blue polish and a dotting tool to place dots randomly onto each nail.

I placed the dots so that more were concentrated near the base of the nail. I also tried to make the dots smaller the closer they were to the tip of each nail.

I then repeated the same again, once with a metallic silver polish and then with a light blue polish.

Duochrome Dotticure

This week’s design is a simple dotticure over a duochrome base.

I started by painting all nails in 3 coats of a duochrome polish. This polish is red with hints of green.

I then took a medium sized dotting tool and a white polish to place 3 dots on each nail in a line coming from the base of the nail, but with gaps in between.

I then took a smaller dotting tool and a white polish to place 2 dots in the gaps I had left.

To complete the design I also placed a gold dot on either side of the dot at the base of the nail.

Duochrome Criss Cross Nails

This is a simple design that uses some freehand painted lines as an accent.

I started by painting all nails in 2 coats of a red duochrome polish that has hints of green in it.

On the thumb and ring finger nails I used a thin brush with a white polish to paint 4 diagonal lines down one side of the nail.

I then did exactly the same but down the opposite side of the nail, allowing the lines to cross over in the middle if needed.

I then completed the design with a layer of quick dry top coat.

Mixed Floral Stamped Nails

This week’s design used a few different floral nail stamping patterns across different nails.

I started by painting the little and index fingers in 2 coats of a light pink textured shade with gold and silver glitter in it.

On the remaining nails I used 2 coats of a metallic teal/turquoise shade.

I then took a gold polish and a floral nail stamping pattern to add onto the thumb nails.

I repeated this onto both the middle and ring finger nails, but using a different floral pattern on each type of nail.

Golden Butterfly Nails

This is a simple stamped butterfly nail design in summery yellow and gold.

I started by painting all nails except the little finger nails in 2 coats of a yellow polish.

On the little finger nails I used 2 coats of a dense gold glitter polish.

I then used a butterfly stamping pattern with a gold metallic polish.

I stamped this onto one of the bottom corners of each of the yellow nails.

Gold Shimmer Colour Block Nails

This week’s design is a colour block design where both polishes have gold shimmer in them.

I started by painting all nails in 2 coats of a nude pink shade.

This has a matte finish and gold shimmer in it.

I then used a bright orange red polish with gold shimmer and a textured effect finish to it.

I used just one coat of this polish to paint a diagonal colour blocked area at the tip end of each nail.

Hearts and Stars Nails

This week’s design is a stamped design using both heart and star stamping patterns.

I started by painting the thumb and ring finger nails in 2 coats of a peach polish.

On the remaining nails I used 2 coats of a orange red polish with gold glitter in it.

On the peach nails I used a rose gold polish and heart stamping patterns. A different pattern was used on the thumb and ring finger nails.

I then did the same with 2 different star stamping patterns and a gold polish onto the peach coloured nails as well.

Multi Coloured Striped Nails

This design is a simple one that has a busy accent nail.

I started by painting all nails, except the ring fingers with 2 coats of a textured polish that is a reddish orange colour with gold glitter.

On the ring fingers I used a plan white polish.

I then took a thin brush and a green polish to paint random stripes coming from either side of the ring finger nails.

I then repeated the same with a pink, red, blue and purple polish to build up the multicolored effect on the accent nails.
