Nail Art Tutorial – Pink Geometric Tribal Mix – Nail Art Stamping

20150903_000211cThe Nail Art:

Hi guys! ๐Ÿ™‚ I was in a stamping mood and created this fun pink geometric tribal-ish manicure. I really just grabbed a couple random plates plus a few polishes and challenged myself to come up with a design using some of the images. I kind of wish I picked something other than pink, but whatever I had fun with it :p. This look was really easy too! Check out the tutorial below. โค

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? ๐Ÿ™‚

Nail Art Tutorial – Grayscale Leoaprd Design – Hand Painted Nail Art

20150704_045717bThe Nail Art:

Hi guys! How was your 4th of July weekend? (to those whom celebrate it). Hope you had fun and stayed safe :). Today I bring you some matte grayscale leopard nails with an added pop of color…. Wait a minute, I just realized that this is like my 3rd nail design using this grey polish. They were all matte as well (there was the moon nails and the quilted skull nails). Haha well I guess for some reason I have just been into gray/grey; whichever way you choose to spell it. I personally switch between the two all of the time. Okay, I am getting off track now – back to the nail design! So for this matte gray design I opted for some leopard print and decided on a grayscale/monochrome/black and white look lol. I was originally just going to stamp on a leopard print to make it quick and easy but then I decided to hand paint it all because I really wanted the grey print to be only a few shades darker than the base. Since I didn’t have a nail polish that was within a few shades of the base color, I went ahead and mixed black and white acrylic paint to ensure the perfect tone. To add a little pop and pizazz ( I really wanted to say that for some reason – I’m so lame haha) I added a bright blue/aqua color in a base triangle with a stripe. And for the tip of the day: to get the perfect stripe I painted strips of striping tape (that was a bit f a tongue twister there lol) with the same blue polish and then applied them to my nails. So much easier than trying to get a nice clean line with a wonky striping brush :p. Here is the Tutorial:

Nail Art Tutorial – Diy Matte Skull Nails – Quilted Skull

20150621_220422aThe Nail Art: I wanted to keep today’s design simple because the heat here is really making me not want to do anything other than take a long cold shower. lol Recently I received this image plate for review so I thought this would be a great time to use it. I ended up just simply stamping it (had to test it anyways right? :p) and then I thought some little studs would be a nice addition. ๐Ÿ™‚ I ended up doing this design over 3 times because the stamped image wasn’t coming out very crisp. I had to fill in some of the design myself with paint but you can still see a lot of empty spaces and gaps in the image. Luckily the messed up stamping kind of adds to the grunge look of this design.

Nail Art Tutorial – DIY Galaxy Nail Design – Lunar Surface Nails

20150605_143307bThe Nail Art:

I had so much fun with these and they were so simple to create!

Here is what you will need:

hHow-to:

View the video tutorial here.

  • I started by applying 2 coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and allowed it to dry.
  • I then cut a small piece of a make-up sponge (or feel free to use a cotton swab) and dipped it into some Salon Perfect Carbon-Copy and randomly dabbed it all over my nails.
  • Next, I dabbed on a bit of Salon Perfect Nail Lac Haze in a small area of the nail and added a bit more of the light grey and some white. I continue to blend the colors, adding more as I went,
  • After sponging on the colors I applied a layer of matte top coat, and gave it a minute or 2 to dry (but not all of the way).
  • Next with a dotting tool (or an end of a bobby pin) I lightly patted random areas of the nails with the end to create little craters/indents. This will give dimension to the design and make it look more realistic.
  • Finally I just let the my nails dry fully and I was feeling out of this world. lol

Nail Art Stamping – Marsala

20150604_140953aThe Nail Art:

When I look at my nail polish stash there always seems to be at least one color that just catches my eye, every time. Yet for some reason I still end up not choosing it. This beautiful Marsala color called You Goji by Sinful Colors has been that color! I just couldn’t figure out what design I wanted to use it in… until now that is! I decided to just go for it and also picked out a couple random items including a second nail color as well as a stamping plate. Time to get creative!

Here is what you will need:

20140805_112743

How-to:

I started by applying 2 coats of Sinful Colors You Goji and allowed it to dry for a while.

Next, using Kleancolor Metallic Yellow I stamped on the bottom right image from Cici&Sisi plate 23 onto all of my nails.

I then sealed in the design with a matte top coat and added a gold square stud to the center of each nail for an extra touch. And there you have it; this quick and simple nail design is complete! ๐Ÿ™‚
