  1. Black and White French Manicure

    Black and white French manicure

    There are a lot of examples on the Internet of the classic white tip French manicure with a line of black underneath. However I’ve never seen the reversed version of this manicure. This is why I decided to fill in this gap by creating the black tip French manicure with a small white line underneath.

  2. Pink French with Flower Pattern

    This time I was in the mood to do stamping. I have to admit that you should be patient enough to master stamping technique. Even I consider myself as a beginner in this subject.

    I picked the flower pattern from m73 stamping plate by Konad. This image is too small to cover the whole surface of my nails, that’s why I came up with the idea to paint my tips pink. I used W7 — 78 Fuchsia to create square french manicure with the straight tip line. However, I had to apply three coats to cover up the translucent black flower pattern.

  3. Silver Manicure with Black Dots and Floral Stamping

    Normally you won’t see me with short nails. Because I broke one, I had to cut them all. So I’m using the opportunity to do nail designs, that I wouldn’t try on long nails. Namely, I’m talking about stamping on the entire surface of the nail. Usually, either the design on the image plate is too small, or the stamper isn’t big enough to cover my nails. That’s why, one of the good things about having short nails is that you can do stamping as much as you want. (more…)


  4. Black Crackle on Green French Tips

    I made this mani because I wanted to try out my new nail polishes: Color Club — Twiggie, Color Club — Wild Cactus and W7 — Earthquake Black. Since my gradient from pale to emerald green came out not very good, I had to cover it with black crackle nail polish by W7. Crackles came out even and fine, that I liked a lot.

    Happy birthday to me, I just turned 21! Thus I had a very pretty black and gold dress for my birthday party. Of course, I couldn’t leave my nails without the suitable manicure. That’s why I came up with the reverse half-moon, also known as the Ruffian manicure. (more…)

    I’m officially obsessed with gradients! Moreover, I love the process of mixing nail polishes to achieve the right shade. It makes me feel so arty and creative. This time I combined two of my favourite techniques — Ombre and Stamping — to create simple and not boring nail art design. (more…)


  8. Flamy Ombre Nail Art

    Despite the fact that shades of orange, brown and yellow are my least favourite colours, today I was in the mood to create something fiery, flamy. Thus, I came up with the gradient, from the darkest shade of brown (almost black) to the lightest orange. (more…)
