About Keely's Nails

I don’t leave the house without a manicure! I do it all myself because I enjoy it, and I've been learning how to create my own nail art and designs.

Purple Mojave Turquoise water spotted nail art

I had been feeling like I’d really lost my inspiration and motivation lately. After joining in on a Bloggeration Chat on Sunday morning I had a look through my Pinterest board, and found some Purple Mojave Turquoise that I found really beautiful. I put my mind to recreating it as nail art, and I’m so happy with the results.

Glitter Mermaid Tail Nail Art Mint Green

Yes, I know this is another green manicure. I’ve honestly been trying to do something different, but this isn’t really my fault. This Mermaid Tail Nail Art is part of this month’s Maniswap challenge, and the prompt was mint green.

I based it on a design from Jane, who is known as Foxxy Nails on Instagram and has a YouTube channel too.

Danger High Voltage Electric Nail Art with Superchic Lacquer Pheromone

Superchic Lacquer is a new brand to Rainbow Connection (where Annette helpfully enables my polish addiction) and Pheromone is a stand out colour for me. It’s a very bright, chartreuse-leaning yellow holographic.   I decided to create some Electric Nail Art to match the bright colour.

Amethyst Crystal Nail Art Smoosh Technique

In a very exciting departure, I’m writing about nail art that isn’t green!! I’ve been on a bit of a theme lately, so here’s something different.  Along with opal nails, trying to recreate nails that look like semi-precious stones has been a challenge. This Amethyst Crystal Nail Art uses a smooshing technique which worked really well to create the layers and stripes you see in this type of stone.

Gradient Stamping Spring Celtic Knot Design

I feel like I’ve really lost my nail art mojo lately. My full-time job is taking a lot out of me at the moment and I think there’s no space left for creativity.  Or energy left at the end of the day. I came up with this gradient stamping design because I wanted something with a little more interest than a straightforward stamped mani, which has kind of been my default lately.

It’s still quite simple and quick, and the gold flakes in the base colour show through delightfully.

Chanel Spring 2017 swatches Emblematique Washed Denim Androgyne

I’m finally back with some new Chanel Spring 2017 swatches  and these posts are always really popular content here.  I thought that the colours they chose were more autumnal than spring-like, but Chanel have a new-ish creative director, so maybe that’s why.  The last few collections, like Summer 2016, were kind of unexpected shades, unlike some of the candy-inspired colours you expect at this time of year.

Easy stamping holographic St Patrick’s Day nail art

I am really feeling all the green shades at the moment, so I didn’t really need the excuse of St Patrick’s Day for this design. I was reminded about this super bright green holo polish I had, and added a little stamping to make this St Patrick’s Day nail art.

Double Stamping Leafy Green Nail Art

Who’s ready for spring? I certainly am, I can’t wait to leave the cold weather and never-ending rain behind.  This design brings all the colours of spring together, with its double-stamped leaf pattern.  I was so happy with how this turned out, and I took so many photos… This is a really image-heavy post, but be patient so you can see all the gorgeousness of this Leafy Green Nail Art.
