I’m loving nail art at the moment, some I see and I’m just like. ‘Oh why, can’t I do that!’ I’m artistic, but I know I’d mess up something so small and intracate. Plus, how on earth do these people manage to do the same on their opposite hands is beyond me!
Nevertheless, I love looking at them, and so thought I’d do a post showing some galaxy/cosmic nail art. Maybe I will try it someday… enjoy! 😀
Actually, by looking at the step by step guide above, I don’t think these look too hard to re create. Just need to see if I have the right colours… mmmm. I might try these later! 🙂
* Note, non of the photos above are mine. I did not create or take credit for anything shown. cannot credit those who did the art, as I found these images on we heart it.com, upladed by random users.*
As some of you may have read a while ago, I bought some false oval shaped nails. So yesterday I decided to wear them and show you my NOTD. 🙂
And it’s no hidden secret that I ADORE Barry M nail paints… the colours I used were
Barry M “Bright purple”, and then their gorgeous pastel “Berry Ice cream” as an accent colour on just one nail. I really liked how it came out, and think the colours complement each other. I’m tempted to put gold glitter on them though, haha I think I love glitter too much 😛 shhhh!
I’m loving the whole, matte black nail varnish look at the moment. If anyone knows where I can find some (apart from the Chanel one) then please let me know. 🙂 For now enjoy these photos I found on, we heart it…
This is my nail of the day, a deep red base coat with a moc croc effect over the top, to give the impression of cracked leather.
The red underneath, is nail inc. in “Piccadilly circus”. It’s a gorgeous deep almost burgundy red, really vampy and great colour for autumn/winter. It glides on the nails so smoothly and easily, and dried relatively quick, which is great for people like me, who have little patience for nails to dry. 😉
The moc croc is Barry M’s nail effects varnish, in black “croc effects”. I love love LOVE this varnish, I just love the look and texture that it gives, again as with all Barry M nail varnishes it applies easy, smooth and even…the effects varnishes dry really quickly, which is great. This croc is my favourite varnish in my collection, it also goes with ever colour imaginable as it is in black. 😀
I just received my oval shape, false nails though the post. Yay. 😀
And now I’m looking for inspiration to do my own nail art on them… All photos below are neither my nail art nor my photography. All rights belong to their creators. No copyright intended. I found all the following photos on We Heart it.
I’m loving these studded nails!
Definitely going to try out doing some, ‘ombre/gradient’ nails. ❤ So pretty, and they – look so fun to do.
Hey puddings! I wanted to try out some nail art…I call this one ”Gold bar”. I used Barry M’s ‘Berry Ice cream’, as the base colour over my whole nail, to make the tips. I then used Barry M ”Bright pink” and made a horizontal line at the bottom of my nails. And Finally, I used Barry M ”gold foil” and applied a horizontal bar across the centre of my nails, to create a gold bar effect 🙂
I still need to clean up the edges, but I’m happy with the outcome, and think it would look really cute for summer!
Just wanted to show my nail of the day. Barry M gold foil, as the base – with Barry M, yellow topaz glitter (from their jewel glitter collection) over the top. 🙂
(So hard to photograph) The tones of the glitter bits constantly change when they reflect the light. It looks green/blue in my photos all the time. In real life, the sparkles of glitter are gold!
This is a gorgeous glitter, and still looks just as lovely if you just do one coat, much more subtle, but still sparkly. I did two coats on my nails. 🙂 Really need to get the others in the collection (pictured below)
