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.

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.

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.

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.

Grey and Silver Chevron nail art for Maniswap Circle

Ages ago (this post has been sat in draft for way too long) I created this maniswap for the circle.  The colour prompt was grey and silver, and I chose this chevron design from sweetnailsbycandi. The pale grey and holo silver stamping created this chic and speedy design.  I always fall back on triangles and chevrons , they just call to me somehow…  On to my Chevron nail art

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
