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.

Frank Stella nail art Monochrome Lines

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!

The fortnightly challenge is run by Angela and Natasha on Instagram. This time I was recreating Andrea’s plaid design. I know she didn’t like it that much, but the fox is so cute! It was based on a Kate Spade design, and I think it is perfect for Maniswap Circle in Lilac. Read More

Picture Polish Merge

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!

Bracelet Nails

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! Read More
