Hey guys, how was your Monday? Mine was long but I have a late start tomorrow, yaay!
Tonight I have another Halloween nail design to share with you using the vampire lips nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells. I painted all my nails with w7 Black and then applied the vinyls on the tips of the nails and used red acrylic paint to paint on the 'blood drips' on the accent nail before applying topcoat.
Hey everyone, how has your weekend been? Unfortunately my weekend has been pretty rubbish but tonight I have some spooky graveyard nails.
These look a lot more challenging to do than they really are which is what I love most about nail vinyls. I have a tutorial at the bottom of this post so click read more to see how to do these, they're so easy thanks to the nail vinyls so anyone can do them :)
I used 2 Barry M Gelly polishes for the night sky gradient, the lighter shade is Blue Grape and the darker one is Blackberry. The black base colour I used was w7 Black.
I hope you like it! Don't forget to see the whole post for the tutorial, enjoy! :)
These nails were really simple and easy to do, all I did was paint on two coats of OPI Push and Shove and once that was dry I used the spiderweb nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells and painted over the top using Angelica black nail polish* and peeled off the vinyl and ta da! I love spiderweb design but very rarely do them because they're time consuming and fiddly but these vinyls make it so easy and quick!
So I actually did these nails on my nubs but they never made it to the blog because I just didn't think they looked right! But I loved the design so recreated them on my longer nails!
To do these nails I did a black and dark blue gradient on all the nails using Angelica nails in Black* (I can't remember the name, sorry) and Nails Inc Motcomb Street at the tips. I then added one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust on all the nails to make the nails look like the night sky. For the feature nail I used a sponge and painted pink (Playboy Hot Violet*) in the middle and a circle of purple (OPI Funky Dunkey) around it, so kind of like a circular gradient, and sponged this onto the nail. and just to finish it off I added a silver lightning nail vinyl from She Sells Seashells which you can get here.
Hello everybody, how was your weekend? I'm sorry I didn't blog this week but I've had a really busy week at uni which also included seeing my first patient! So I've spent the weekend trying to catch up on sleep and just generally relax a bit.
Tonight though I have another Halloween nail art design to share with you, featuring some amazing bat nail vinyls from She Sell Seashells. I really wanted these bats to stand out and ended up deciding to do an orange circular gradient for a background.
I have done this circular (or bullseye) gradient before but I haven't got round to posting them here yet. For the gradient I used Barry M Gelly in Mustard for the inner bit and then Illamasqua Insanity for the outer part of the gradient and just to darker it up a touch I also used a little bit of China Glaze Stoked To Be Soaked.
I used these nail vinyls in 2 different ways to show you how easy they are to use and how to make these vinyls go a bit further. On the ring finger I used the vinyls as a stencil and then on the other fingers I used the little inner bits of the stencil as stickers and then added top coat.
I must say I'm quite proud of how these turned out I really love them!
