Beaded Half Moon Nails

For this design I wanted it to be quite subtle but a little bit bold at the same time.

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

This one is from Barry M’s frosted cupcakes collection, which has subtle flecks of silver glitter in it as well to add depth.

Once this was dry I used a thin brush and a red glittery nail polish to paint half moons on both the ring and thumb nails.

Finally I placed a line of gold coloured nail beads to cover the edge line of the half moons to neaten everything up.

Simple Dotty Outline Nails

This was a nice simple quite plain design that you could wear for any occasion.

I started by painting all nails in ‘Marshmallow’ from Barry M’s ‘Frosted Cupcakes’ collection. I had to use 3 coats to get the coverage I wanted. This is an off white shade with tiny flecks of silver flakes. They don’t show up too well but it does add more texture to the look of things.

I then added my dots in a bronze shade. I started by placing a larger dot in the centre of the base of each nail.

Then on either side of this dot, I added two more dots (making 4 in total) in a slightly smaller sized dotting tool. On the thumbs I added 3 dots on either side.

I then finished off the design by adding 2 more dots in the same colour on either side, underneath the previous ones in an even more slightly smaller sized dotting tool.
