Nail Art Tutorial – Seamless Black – Simple Negative Space Design

20150828_223510a

Hi guys, I’m back with new nail art! 🙂 Did you miss me? Even just a little? :p I also worked on a new logo and placement (again) and this time I think I finally got something that I like and will stick with for a while. So let’s get to the design:20150828_230510aThe Nail Art:

For today;s look I wanted to create something super basic but also edgy so I made a simple negative space design that will also work as a background for any extra design details. I was originally going to paint some roses/flowers over it but as you can tell, I ended up changing my mind and went with some studs! I love how edgy it turned out I didn’t film a tutorial for the stud arrangements as it was a last minute change but the tutorial for the first look can be found below. 🙂

False Nail Set – Yellow Leopard

https://www.etsy.com/shop/BaroquenNails DSC_0219Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week so far! Today’s nail set is a recreation of a mani I posted a while back (with the same name) see it here to see what I am talking about. :p They are exactly the same design, even though I like to change the design up sometimes when I recreate it but I didn’t do that this time. Anyways, this set and many others are available on Etsy. I also have some other fun nail art stuff listed now like custom made embellishment sets, blank nail sets, and I also do custom orders if you ever want something hand designed just for you. 🙂 Wear them, frame them, or give them as gifts! haha

Nail Art Tutorial – Sea Love Using Nail Decals

20150726_012139b

The Nail Art:

Hello! 🙂 I have some more nail decals to show you today. They are gold sea life themed decals from BornPrettyStore. For this design I wanted to keep the color combination simple and opted for a white and tan gradient with a gold accent nail. I also ended up making a second variation that includes a little cameo over the accent nail. I am not sure which I prefer… I love me some 3d nail art but I actually like the subtly of the first design better. :p Which is your favorite?

The Tutorial for the first design can be found below, or you can watch it here. ❤

The Review:

The brand of these decals is ‘Magico’ and it includes one sheet that is decently sized (bigger than the lace sheet from Friday’s design). They are very pretty and there are a lot of individual designs to choose from. There are different types of seashells, mermaids, coral, starfish, etc; there are even a few Little Mermaid themed ones on there! However, the gold is like a foil material and it may bleed or crack with certain top coats. I found that only one of the decals bled and and cracked but it was barely noticeable, overall they are much better than other gold foil stickers I have tried. However, they are a bit pricey for what you actually get (as far as my budget is concerned). If you want to check these nail decals out more click here. Also if you decide that you want to purchase anything from their store, feel free to save 10% with code QUENW10.

False Nail Set – Mermaid Fin

20140720_164459Hi everyone! Sorry for my no post on Monday. My life has just been feeling a bit more hectic than usual and I have been finding it hard to keep up with nail art lately. I really hope to get back on track here soon though 🙂 In the meantime please enjoy this bit of a throwback (for me anyways) of a custom mermaid nail set that I did way back when. I didn’t post it earlier due to always wanting to post my newer/more relevant sets. lol But it is has been pushed to the side for too long now, time for its debut :p hehe

Nail Art Tutorial – Pink And Gray Floral Half Moon Manicure – Nail Art Stamping

20150715_205728The Nail Art:

Happy Friday everyone! Today I have some pink and gray floral nails for you. I ended up making two variations of this design: 1 plain and simple and 1 with some fun 3d embellishments.

Since I have been making nail tutorial videos I have learned many things: The first thing being that they are not as easy as I assumed they would be lol – they are also very time consuming. Secondly, I understand that many people do not have much nail art supplies or the means of getting them, so it it is much easier for them to follow my tutorials with out all of that crazy stuff :p. At the same time I don’t want to stray away from my typical nail art style (which includes lot’s of embellishments hehe) so to hopefully help with that I thought it would make things a bit easier to include multiple versions.

So here is the second version with the added embellishments. It has been a while since I have used chain; doesn’t it change the style of this design? It added a bit of edge and flare. Which one do you prefer? 🙂
