Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a nail design with that iconic Burberry pattern accent. This beautiful berry color is Raspberry by Barry M.

The Burberry accent I started on a base of opaque nude, my favorite Zoya Chantal. I added two thicker white lines using directly the nail polish brush. The black and raspberry lines I added using a thin brush. I must admit this design was quite a challenge as I am not the best in making straight lines. Anyway, I love the result and think the effort was well worth it :)

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a quick and easy nail art idea with striping tape. To get the look below simply paint your nails nude and your ring finger white. Then add three pieces of striping tape to your middle finger tip and paint it white.

Nail polishes I used are my favorite white Essie Blanc and the beautiful nude Zoya Chantal.

Hello nail art lovers!

I have already shared with you my love for gradient nail art designs along with my regret that I have not mastered making them yet… Today I have for you  some ideas how to repair your gradient nail art in case it did not turn out perfect on every nail or it has worn off on a nail or two :)

TIP 1: Add solid color + polka dots

For this design I thought adding a solid color in one of my gradient colors will fit the design. I added polka dost to make it cuter. For this design I used Essie, Models Own Pink Veneer and China Glaze At Vase value over a white base of Essie Blanc. I added a layer of China Glaze Fairy Dust to smooth the gradient out.

TIP 2: Use striping tape and full coverage

My next idea is to use some striping tape on some of your nails and cover your gradient completely with an opaque color. When you take the striping tape off, your gradient will still come through the full color. I chose to cover with white.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I want to show you this dark nail design with neon accent. I have seen similar designs around the internet and thought I might give this idea a try.

To get the design simply pain your nails a bright neon color and wait to dry. Then add striping tape and cover with black.

My top coat smudged a bit of black on my neon lines so I am not sure I would recommend adding a top coat unless you are 100% sure it won\t ruin details.

First, paint your base colors
For this navy nail design I have several colors on. OPI Honey Ryder on my little finger; Essie Blanc on my ring finger and thumb; China Glaze Petal to the Metal on my middle finger and CND Midnight Saphire on my fore finger.

Then, add some stripes to your ring finger and thumb
Use some striping tape to mark out several parallel lines on your nails. Using each color, paint your lines depending on how you like the color combination between them. When you remove the striping tape you will have your parallel stripes.

For this nail design I did not use a top coat because it would ruin the texture effect of Honey Ryder.

Hello nail art lovers!

I have a crazy neon detailed manicure for you today. Fast and easy to make, the only fuss about it being some striping tape for the ring finger stripes.

Here is how to make it.

First, paint your nails white
I painted all my nails white because neon colors pop best on a white base.

Then, add neon details
Dots I used two neon colors for this nail design – yellow and pink. Randomly add tiny neon dots to your white nails, leaving the ring fingers. Then add some black dots to fully match the color scheme of this design.

Stripes Roughly divide your ring fingers in two halves, painting one a yellow neon shade and the other a pink neon shade. Do not worry to make ot perfect, you will be covering them black all over :)

Add 4 parallel striping tape pieces to your ring fingers and paint them black. Remove the striping tape to reveal neon stripes

Voila! You have crazy neon nail design. Add some top coat of you wish but have in mind that it will make your neon look a bit less bright.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a marine nail design in the most classical navy color combination. I decorated it using striping tape and some gold studs. I like that those type of designs ca be recreated in many different ways depending on your mood and imagination. For this particular one I painted some of my nails coral using Essie Peach Daiquiri, white using Essie Blanc and blue using L.A. Girls 3D Brilliant Blue. I randomly attached striping tape and added a contrasting color to achieve clean stripes. to finish off the look, I attached a few gold studs using a top coat as adhesive.
