Black and Blue Stripes

I’ve been a bit slack with my nails lately but here are my nails from last week! I forgot to take a photo after I painted them so they’re a little chipped in this photo.
So to do this I just painted my nails blue (I used Rommel London 60second dry because I couldn’t be bothered waiting for them to dry ) and then I placed cup up strips of masking tape in a zig zag pattern over my nails once it was absolutely dry!! Then I painted over in black and once dry peeled it back and did a top coat! 😀 sorry if this seems rushed but I’m about to get on a plane to London! I’m soo excited and I even did my nails to celebrate! So the next post will be my European map nails! Hope you enjoy this design!

GLITTER!!!

GLITTER!!!

This is my glittery version of a french tip manicure. To do this I started with a natural toned nail polish that is still clear but with a pinky tinge to it. Then I got a course sponge and two different kinds of glitter in clear nail polish. One with small glitter and the other with larger glitters. I applied the smaller glittered polish directly onto the edge of the sponge and the dabbed it over the tip of my nail and continued to do this until the whole tip is covered. I also applied glitter to the middle section of my nails but not as much as at the tip so it has a gradient going into the tip.
Then over the top of that I added the larger glittered nail polish to give it some variety in size. Once all of it was dry I put a clear top coat to protect the glitter and prevent chipping. I really like this look, it’s very elegant looking. You could also do this same process but with a colour underneath. I think black with the silver glitter would look great!
