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.
After my brief sojourn back to summer with my Miami-themed Sunset Palms design, I’m into the Halloween designs now. This is actually a #maniswapcircle design, reproduced in orange and black for the season. If you’d like some unique Halloween Nail Art, these are perfect.
Fabiana set this art-inspired challenge on NailArtNation this week, and she definitely had me in mind! His artwork is a mixture of colour and monochrome pieces, and I loved the monochrome line work, which had an almost op-art quality about it. I’d like to present my Frank Stella nail art!
I am a bit of a sucker for Picture Polish shades, and this is one I bought earlier this year. Picture Polish Merge is a beige creme with scatter holo particles. That means all the individual pieces make their own rainbow, rather than one big one across the nail. I started with a swatch, then added some nail art (of course) and then had to go a bit crazy with the hand positions to capture the art!
I’ve seen photos of this design a few times and I think Bracelet Nails are going to be the next big trend in nail art. It involves a sheer or nude base, with thin, roughly horizontal lines near the tip, loaded with nail jewellery like a charm bracelet. This is my take on it!
