Hello nail art lovers!

Today I want to share with you my Valentine’s day nail art idea. It is non-pink, easy to make and involves some stamping :) So if you would like to opt for a nail design out of the traditiona pink/red/romantic vibe, I suggest the one below.

The textured gold color is OPI Honey Ryder which I love and have shown you in several designs so far. On the white finger I have Bundle Monster stamping image from their Holiday collection image plates. This heart is the uppermost image on the BM-H16 image plate. I have Zoya Bar in the black nail base to add a glitter gold accent. I think these few glitters are the ingredient which binds the whole design together.

This look is super easy to achieve. I have 2 coats of Essie Mamba on. I added Zoya Bar to my tips and then lined the tips with gold striping tape.

I have shown you Essie Mamba before in this previous post: http://nailcentric.net/peachy-nude-essie-mamba-review-swatches/

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a flower nail design based on dots. I chose three of the colors from Zoya Naturel nail polish collection which I love. These are Zoya Normani (thumb), Zoya Brigitte (forefinger) and Zoya Chantal (pinkie). To get this nail design you need a dotting tool and some nail art studs/beads. On your middle and ring fingers paint 5 dots to form a flower. Then add micro beads in the center of each flower and finally ceal your design with a layer of top coat.

Hello lovelies!

I have this super cute panda nail design today. foodpanda contacted me with their idea to make a panda nail art post and I thought it would be a great :)

To get this look simply paint some of your nail white and some of them black. Add black spots on your white nails. Tip! To make your panda look fluffy, do not attempt for clear outlines. I added my furry details using a brush and just touched my nail surface with it repeatedly.

Hello lovelies!

Merry Christmas to all!

Today I have for you my New Year’s Eve nail art idea.

First, paint all your nails black
I chose black for the base color because it makes the best contrast between shiny and mat part of the nails. I guess you could try any color though.

Then, add a mat top coat

Then, run clear top coat through your nail tips
I added freehand French nail tip using a clear top coat. Do not worry if you do not get the perfect line, striping tape will go over your line later and conceal imperfections. You can make your shiny tips with your black base bu this way you risk getting some black onto your cuticles. Clear top coat is the safest option :)

Last, add gold striping tape
Add gold striping tape over the French tip base. Wait until your base is completely dry to avoid the risk of smudging it with the tape.

Hello lovelies!

Today I have for you another idea how to cheat the marble nail art and get the marble effect without water :)

To get these no water marble nails you will need 2 colors of your choice and a needle.

First, paint your base color
I chose white and salmon pink for my base colors. You need one thin layer of your base color. This technique works best with opaque formulas. After your first thin coat is dry, go ahead and apply a fat coat of the same color. Tip! Do one nail at a time to make sure your marble will blend beautifully.

Then, add a few drops of your second color while the base is still wet
I added the no water marble design for three of my nails. Spot large spots of your second color on your wet base. Do not attempt them to be perfect circles, it would not add to the final result.

Then, drag a needle across your nail while nail polish is still wet
I use the needle length to drag into the wet mixture of colors. This way it will not leave deep marks into your design. Tip! As nail polish dries, it becomes less flexible and your needle will start dragging some of the color with it, so be quick :)

Last, add a layer of top coat to smooth your marble even more
Adding a layer of top coat will also conceal any areas your needle left without enough color.

To finish off the design, I added micro beads to my little finger and thumb. I used a drop of clear  nail polish to attach them.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a mix&match Christmas nails idea. I love how it turned out, it reminds me of Christmas time wrap paper.

To get this look simply paint: your thumb and little fingers red; your ring finger white; your middle finger green; your forefinger gold. I added diagonal stripes and stars images to two of the nails and then some gold studs so that the whole composition would look like Christmas ornaments.

This was my mix&match Christmas nail art idea, I hope you enjoyed!
