Since I’ve been doing a lot of green nail art lately, I needed some outside colour inspiration. One of my Instagram friends Tanya suggested navy blue, one of her favourite colours. For some quick and easy nail art matte navy blue is really chic, and very work appropriate.
In case you missed it, here’s a round up of the Chanel Nail Polish Holiday 2016 Swatches I posted a couple of weeks ago. You will have to be quick if you want one, since these are limited edition polishes! I’ve linked through to my full reviews of each one if you’d like to know more.
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…
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.
The last of three swatches from this Holiday collection is Chanel Liquid Mirror 540. It’s a classic silver chrome polish, but does it offer anything different to the chrome polishes we’ve seen before? Is it special enough to make you buy it? There are lots of photos here to help you decide!
One of the best things about summer in the UK is that, occasionally, you get brilliant sunshine. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does it’s the right time to bring out your holo polishes. Well, in my opinion it’s always the right time for holo, but don’t miss out seeing these polishes in actual bright, direct, natural light. If, like me, you can’t get enough of it, try this Holographic Stamping on holo for some ultimate summer nails.
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!
