Lace nail art inspired with Wingz

Lace nail art inspired with Wingz

Something a bit different for you today! I was sent a pair of Wingz for review by Sarah, and I chose a lovely scalloped lace three-quarter length sleeve design.  I created some nails to match of course – lace nail art inspired with Wingz!

If you haven’t seen Wingz before, they are essentially sleeves that you can add to an outfit to give your a little more warmth or coverage.  This lace design has been great for me, particularly when the air con gets a bit too ferocious.

Graffiti Hearts stamping nail art

I’m still catching up on sleep after a busy few weeks, and whenever I’m short on time I turn to stamping to create detailed nail art designs quickly. For this Graffiti Hearts stamping nail art I was inspired by Miss Sock who did something similar over a watermarble base.

Monarch Butterfly nail art with stamping and freehand

I was a bit stumped for a design to try this week, and then I remembered that I'd bought a new plate with butterfly wing outlines on it that was so far untried. I decided to recreate some Monarch Butterfly nail art using some orange holo polishes.

Fire Obsidian nail art 

As part of my series inspired by semi-precious stones, I've been looking around for my next project. The photo (scroll down) really caught my eye, so I'm trying this Fire Obsidian nail art. It's an experiment in progress so I think I'll be coming back and trying this again.

Worker Bee nail art for Manchester stamping decals

The events in Manchester last week really shocked me. The audience for an Ariana Grande concert are young people and children, their parents, so it felt particularly callous to me.  It’s part of my job to react and deal publicly with these sort of things. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a serving police officer or anything, but I did spend the whole day working on reacting professionally to the bombing, so when I got home all the emotions got to me at once.   I decided to add a Worker Bee for Manchester to my nails, to show my respect and support in my own way.

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.

Stormy Swirly Nail Art Stamping Maniswap

Welcome back after a longer than anticipated break! I’ve been ill all through December, so I didn’t get to do anywhere near as many manis as I wanted. This design is part of the Maniswap Circle, based on an original design by Nancy. The prompt was black and white, and the finished product looks like a winter storm. Here’s my Stormy Swirly Nail Art Stamping.
