Colourful Lines Nails

This week’s design is a simple design with colourful stripes on top of a nude background. I painted the stripes freehand with a striping brush, as you can probably tell, as my lines aren’t exactly the neatest lol. I always both admire and envy nail art videos where the nail artist has such perfect brush control and can paint such perfect neat straight lines.

I started by painting all nails in a light cream/nude shade. I used 2 coats to get an even base colour. All colours that I used are from Barry M’s Coconut Infusion range.

I then took a striping brush and my first chosen shade for the stripes. I went with a sort of mint green colour. I painted the stripes so that they were at a different angle on each nail, but so that each hand matched.

I then took a light blue shade and the same size striping brush and placed a stripe directly to the side of the previous line.

I then repeated the same with my final colour which was a pink shade. I placed these stripes on the opposite side of the green line. However I think it would have been better to have the pink line in the middle as the green gets a bit camouflaged in with the blue.

Pastel Candy – Lost nail art pictures

This one reminded me a little of those humbug mint boiled sweets, but a colourful version. I firstly painted all nails in a white.

Then using a striping brush I painted pastel lilac and peach coloured lines going down lengthways on each nail.

Sparkle and Squiggle Nails

I had cut down one of my old nail art brushes to see if it would help me achieve a thinner line. This was just a quick design I came up with in order to test it out.

Firstly I painted all of my nails with 2 coats of my base colour. I went for a purple shade.

Then using a silver colour and a thin nail art brush, I added some curved lines to each nail.

Then I repeated this, but with a multicoloured glitter nail paint. I added the lines in between the silver lines.

I then finished everything off with a top coat.

Blue Ribbon Nails

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.
