  1. Ciaté Nail Taxi Set

    Grey Red Ruffian Manicure

    I created this ‘so Tumblr’ look using the nail polishes from Ciaté’s Nail Taxi polish set. I really like how the red stripes used together with blue-grey polish and dark glitter accomplish the look.

  2. Royal French Manicure with Gold Glitter and Rhinestones

    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). The design is spiced up with a thin line of fine gold glitter, 2mm green and yellow rhinestones, butterfly metal flakes and small gold beads.

  3. 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.

  4. Blue Glitter Manicure with Gold Rhinestones

    This manicure turned out cool and unusual. I never did anything like this before. Manicure summary: orange rhinestones, tiny gold beads and gold square studs over deep blue glitter that was applied to natural nails.

    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. Glitter Jelly Sandwich: First Tryout

    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. 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…)

  8. Flamy Ombre Nail Art

    Flamy orange red ombre nails

    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…)
