    During my transition from long oval shape to short square shape, I decided to and play around with different shapes and sizes. As a result I came up with a very extreme nail design for Halloween.

  3. Blue and Green Ruffian Manicure

    Multicolour Magnetic Ruffian Nails

    This time I created a vibrant blue, green and lime Ruffian manicure (also known as reverse half-moon or reverse French). As a base for my nail design, I used metallic grey nail polish by W7. Although it may not be clearly seen in the pictures, the ‘smile’ at the beginning of each nail was made with the magnetic nail polish and a special magnet.

    Recently I have noticed the increasing popularity of the half French manicure. So here I have created a trendy half French mani (and classic French on some nails).

  5. 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.

  6. Pink Glitter and White French Tips

    To create his glamorous gradient from pale pink glitter to white, I used Beauty UK: Glam Nails — Pink Glitter No.74 as a glittery base for my manicure (I applied two coats). Then, using Madeline Poole’s technique I applied white nail varnish to my tips. It doesn’t really matter what nail polish to use, as soon as it’s pure white and opaque. But here I used W7 — 34 White.

  9. 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.
