White and blue nail art for Maniswap Circle

White and blue nail art for Maniswap Circle

It’s time to reveal what nearly 200 nail artists have been working on for our Maniswap Circle! This month we’ve focused on white and blue nail art designs in memory of Liam Kowal again. As a result, all our designs are blue and white, and some include a ribbon too.

This time I was recreating the work of Meredith from Merely Nails. I chose a stamped geometric pattern, which left me space to add a freehand ribbon.

Coral Ombré for Maniswap Circle

To match the hot weather we’ve been having lately, I think this Coral Ombré design is perfect. It’s got a sunbleached look to it, that with the neon makes a perfect summer holiday manicure.

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.

Gothic Nail Art with lace stamping freehand roses

This week’s challenge on Nail Art Nation was set by me and is Gothic-inspired nail art.  Deep, dark and mysterious! I chose to do Gothic Nail Art with lace and roses, and a thermal peek-a-boo black topcoat, which has just the right amount of glitter. I love this design, because the thermal top coat gives it such a changeable look. Read More
