  1. 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.

  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. 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.

    This week my manicure is classic: white tip french with some glitter that divides the nail and its tip and stamping on the ring fingers. Classic and at the same time not too boring. (more…)


  6. 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…)


  7. 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…)
