Hello lovelies!

Valentine’s Day is approaching! I am always happy on Valentine’s day because it reminds me that no matter if your are single or taken, love is all around. You can find it in your dearest friendships, your adoring dog’s eyes, in the morning air, your spouse embrace, your sibling’s smile. Special day wishes are not my strongest side so I will just wish for you to love and be loved ♥

I chose black for my Valentine’s day manicure because I had chosen stones and pearls previously and I thought they would look great on a black canvas. And they do, needless to say much better in person than in pictures.

Valentine’s Day nail design with jewels

This design how to is pretty obvious, just paint your nails and embellish them with jewels to add luxury to your nail design. Jewels and stones on nails are a little difficult to wear as your nails will eventually start falling apart… I go t invited to take part in Brilliant Earth’s Create a Little Love campaign and creatively spell out the word LOVE so that was my additional inspiration to use stones. Tip! Do not use real diamonds on nails as you are most likely to lose them :)

Spread the love and thanks for reading!

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I am happy to share with you an embellished party manicure. It has pink and baby blue, it has stones, it is girly and perfect for going out and having some fun. I love how the various stones make this nail design somehow creatively messy, like a teenage girl room :)

How to make embellished girly nails?
This is a pretty straightforward nail art. Paint some of your nails pink and some of them blue. I chose pastel nail colors for the doll like vibe they bring and for how easy pastel colors are to combine together. Then add the stones :)

The key to this manicure are the stones you will use to embellish it. Chose different types and sizes to achieve the messy nail art look. You can use pearls, stones, little beads, you can play with colors and basically recycle your nail art stones leftovers. This is what I did with a bunch of embellishments I had not used in some previous nail designs but did not want to throw away.

It is not necessary to use some special glue to attach stones to your manicure. It is ok to add a tiny drop of clear nail polish and then press the embellishment onto your nail art. Tip! Nail art decorations with flat back will attach the easiest and will stay longer on your nails.

Hello lovelies!

I am happy to share with you another wedding nail art design. These are easy DIY bridal nails which still have that extra something to make them special enough for the big day. Read on to see how I created this wedding manicure.

Wedding nail art: romantic pink and luxury jewels

First, apply a pale pink shade to your nails.
I chose pale pink for this design as it is different from the classic natural wedding nail color but still very romantic and mild. Sometimes pale colors are not very pigmented so you may need to us an extra coat to get even and thick nail coverage. For this design I put 3 pink coats.

Last, add luxury :)
I decorated 3 nails with different sized crystals, pearls and silver studs. You do not need some special tools or glue to attach the embellishments. I use a toothpick and a tiny bit of clear polish to pick and stick the details. I believe randomly attached embellishments hold the charm of this design. Still, if you prefer you can attach them using the same pattern for each nail.

Jewels, pearls and studs can be taken from various places and you do not need to look for nail art supplies in particular. You can find tiny embellishments at the haberdashery counter, your local crafts store, even get phone decoration stickers from a dollar store and tear them apart to use the gems for wedding manicure :)

Hi everyone!

Welcome back to my Celebrity nails column to have a look at some stunning nail art creations. High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens shows off her divine embellished claws and knows how to make us nail art lovers jealous. Long and almond shaped, three dimensional and surrealistic, her manicure is for sure not practical, but nevertheless is 100% noticeable. Check out these nail designs created by nail artist Sara Nguyen which Vanessa often trusts for her manicure.

This white and gold manicure embellished with stones was created for a festival. Nail art is accompanied by henna tattoo on fingers. Long live festival spirit :)

Vanessa seems to love black and gold combination and I can understand why. These nail art creations say it clearly. Vanessa walked these black French tip with golden details on the red carpet.

I like how these nails have been created with so much detail and precision. Although I wouldn’t show them off personally, I still admire the work and imagination in the designs. Just to let you know, in case you were wondering, Vanessa sometimes prefers a classic plain red manicure :) Vanessa-Hudgens-Long-NailsInspiration:

Hello nail beauty lovers!

I am happy to share with you this mat blue crystal manicure. It is a rather different Christmas nail design inspired by dark blue and silver Christmas decoration.

To create it you will need a few crystals in addition to nail polish. Tip! You can get such sparkly stones in your local haberdashery or crafts supply store. They usually stock various shapes and colors you can use for your manicure projects as easy as special nail art supplies.

First, paint your nails dark blue, leaving your ring and middle fingers clear.
I chose a dark blue shade as I believe it beautifully complements silver color. Other fingers will be colored in different shades to add intrigue to this nail art :)

Then, paint your ring fingers white and your middle fingers silver.
For my middle fingers I chose a liquid sand formula. I love how it adds extra texture to this design making it look like stylish Christmas decoration. You may choose to use a silver glitter, a holograph, a metallic shade or any silver color you love, I think it will look great with these options too.

Then, add a mat top coat to all nails, except liquid sand ones.
Mattifying your nails will tone your nail design down a bit which is perfectly OK, as you will be adding some crystals and you do not want to overdo the sparkle. Tip! Plus, crystals will adhere better and will stay longer on a mat surface.

Last, add a line of crystals to your ring fingers
I used two different sizes of crystals to match my nail length. You can play with stones a little before you adhere them just to make sure they fit your nails. Tip! I do not use some special glue to stick details to my nails. Instead, I use a tiny drop of clear top coat and pres the crystal down. Hold for few seconds to make sure the clear polish has dried. This technique works great with all kinds of details and does not require specific supplies to do your nail art.

Silver: Rimmel London Space Dust collection, Shooting Star
