  1. Negative Space Hearts Manicure

    Valentine's Day nails with negative space hearts

    The Valentine’s Day is coming! This is probably the best time of the year for a lovely heart nail design. The negative space design is a popular nail art trend today. In addition, it is easy to make and some of the ideas can be very creative and original. To create this manicure, I used heart-shaped gold metal flakes, pastel nail polish 415 Instyle Coral by Rimmel 60 Seconds and the nail brush with acetone to create the negative space effect.

  2. Half Moon Lime and Brown Manicure

    Reverse french lime brown nails

    For this extremely unusual version of the half-moon manicure (also known as ‘reversed french mani’) I applied two coats of lime nail polish Barbara Daly — Zest. Then I carefully painted two coats of pastel brown lacquer by OPI — NL S46 Java Mauve-A, leaving the half-moons unpainted. It’s absolutely up to you which method do you prefer to achieve this effect. Since I find stickers kind of unreliable, I used a thin nail art brush to outline my half-moon curves, and then with an ordinary nail polish brush I painted my nails upwards from the outlines.

  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. Geometric Green and Pink Design

    One of my favourite things about the Web is that this is the place where the inspiration comes from. Every time I surf the Internet, I discover more and more talented nail bloggers, but Madeline Poole is one of my favourite ones at all times. She specializes in simple shapes, geometric designs and gradients. Thus, today’s nail design was inspired by one of her most famous manicures. (more…)


  5. Glitter Jelly Sandwich: First Tryout

    Glitter jelly sandwich

    Glitter Jelly Sandwich technique dulls the glitter to create a more subtle and delicate look. In other words, your manicure will be glossy and shiny, but not too sparkling.

    This is my first tryout of the glitter sandwich technique. I can’t say that this attempt was successful, but not a disaster either. Anyways, we always need something to start from. A good thing about this mani is that I managed to achieve the effect of depth, which means that some glitter sparkle more, and some glitter “sank” deeper into the nail. (more…)

  7. Classic French Ombre

    Classic white french manicure

    I don’t do classic nail designs often. Most of them seem to me a little bit boring and dull. Than’t why, even if I’m in a classy mood, I make something that is more interesting than pink base and white tips. That’s how I came up with this classic french ombre nail design. (more…)


  8. New Year’s Eve Nails

    Red nails with glitter

    We girls always know in advance what are we going to wear for a party. Because I knew, that I’m wearing a red dress for the New Year’s Eve, I started to think about my manicure in advance. I wanted something, that looks like Christmas, but not too complicated to create. So I created red French nail design with chunky silver glitter from Primark Beauty. (more…)
