Gradient Stamping Spring Celtic Knot Design

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.

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.

Swatch FUN Lacquer Cepheus Holographic Gradient

Swatch FUN Lacquer Cepheus Holographic Gradient

As I promised some time ago, I’ve got another FUN Lacquer swatch for you, also based on a constellation. Cepheus is a very old constellation which contains nebulae and remains of old stars. If you’ve got a few minutes to google image search, it’s well worth your time. Much like the constellation, FUN Lacquer Cepheus has so many colours in it. A grey-taupe jelly base, with holographic particles and multicoloured flakies, it’s a stunner.

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.

Nude and Gradient Neon French Tip Nail Art

The challenge on Nail Art Nation last week was French tips. I’m not normally a fan of this style, maybe because I find it a bit boring! But I’m not sure if my natural nails are best suited to it anyway. I chose to do a Nude and Neon French Tip with a soft gradient.

Holographic Lines (fun with striping tape)

Holographic Lines (fun with striping tape)

I’ve never been a big fan of striping tape, mostly because I never really got the hang of it.  It never leaves the clean lines I am hoping for, it’s really fiddly and forget about using the tape itself in a design.  I find it always lifts and peels off the nail, despite top coat. But, because Fabiana set it as a challenge on Nail Art Nation, it’s back for one time only. I paired it with pretty polishes to make myself feel better, aka Holographic Lines. Read More
