Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a textured French look I made super easy and loved wearing. It is fast too as this nail design requires only two coats of nail polish.

First, paint your nails silver.
For the silver color I used a single coat of Essie No Place Like Chrome. I have swatched it in my Silver and blue dots nail art tutorial.

Then, add some pink texture.
Outline your a part of your nails with French nails stripes to make sure you will get a beautiful oval shape when you remove them. Tip! before applying the stripes, touch your skin with them a few times to prevent glue from sticking too hard to your base color.

For my textured color I used China Glaze Unrefined which you have seen featured in my Pink tiger stamped nail tutorial.

Hello nail art lovers!

First, paint your nails white
Start by painting your nails an opaque white color. I love white for brides + I find it very easy to decorate. For this bridal nail design I used 3 coats of my favorite Essie Blanc.

Then, add silver striping tape
Silver striping tape will make these wedding nails look exquisite and elegant. Cut 10 pieces of self adhesive nail art striping tape. Adjust stripes to your nails as it they will indicate where a French tip would start. Cut the excess edges with scissors. Tip! Paint your base color the day before you will add striping tape in order to avoid any smudges and be able to play with it with no risk to ruin your flawless base.

Last, add top coat
Add a good layer of high shine top coat to make sure your striping tape stays in place. Tip! Pay special attention to cover all nail edges so that tape won’t start peeling off.

This was my super easy wedding nails idea, I hope you enjoyed!

Hello nail art lovers!

I found that each time I lack inspiration for doing my nails, cute dots save the day! I have a light and dark blue dotty nail design for you today. I combined dots with the magnificent and shiny Essie No Place Like Chrome which you can see swatched below before you get a peek at the nail art :) I love it much for its maximum impact and true silver shine, I am also OK to pass by the fact that it tends to intensify nail bumps and lumps more than any other formula out there…

Blue dots nail design tutorial
So here is my dotty nail art I promised to show you. It basically is large dots accompanied by smaller dots. To get it, paint some of your nails a silver color and some of them baby blue. The base colors I used are Essie No Place Like Chrome for my silver and Flormar 423 for my blue. I must admit I am surprised how well they go together.

Dot it!
After your base is set ad dry, add large dots diagonally to your nail base. Then, add small dots into your large ones. On some nails I added another diagonal line of smaller dots only. This creates a slightly different pattern and makes the design more interesting. If you think, however that this way your nail art will turn out too busy, you can choose one of the patterns.

For my larger dots used a pin head and for my small dots I used my BPS dotting tool.

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.
