For this one I blended a handfull of raspberries, 2 passion fruits and some cranberry juice together. You might need to add a bit of sugar as I found it a little on the tangy side.
This week’s design is a simple overlapping stripes look.
I started by painting all nails with two coats of my background colour. I went for a shimmery white silk effect polish.
Then using a long nail art brush, I added two randomly placed lines to each nail in a dark blue colour.
Once this was dry I added two more randomly placed lines to each nail overlapping the previous lines. This time I used a lighter glittery blue shade.
Overall I’m happy with how it turned out but I think using a thinner brush would have looked better as the lines look a bit too thick on some nails.
I would have to say my favourite kinds of smoothies are those that have mango in them. The only problem I have with mangoes is getting as much of the fruit as you can away from the seed part in the middle quickly and easily. For this one I took one mango and one banana. I blended it together with some mango juice.
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’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.
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.
