Floral Line Nails

Hi everyone! I wanted to do something simple but summery so this is what I got! The flowers were supposed to be in a thick line going down the middle of the nail but it didn’t really turn out like that..

IMG_20170723_165248_256

Start off by applying a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”

Apply a base color of your choice, I used Jenna Hipp’s “Tres Parfait.”

With a darker shade of the base color, place flowers in a line vertically down the center of the nail. Paint five dots in a circle to create the flowers. I used an XS dotting tool and Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “Pep-Plum.”

IMG_4520IMG_4521IMG_4522

With the same dotting tool and a metallic color, place a dot in the center of each flower. I used Ulta’s “Twinkling.”

Using a detail brush and a green color or two, place leaves around the flowers, I used Red Carpet’s “Detail Brush” and Jordana’s “Key Lime.”

Seashell Nails | Inspired by @kirakiranial and @nailove2807 on Instagram

Hi everyone! I saw @kirakirnail and @nailove2807 posts on Instagram and I just had to recreate this look! It is completely inspired by them both! All supplies used are listed below as always! I hope you all enjoy!

IMG_20170716_191056_255

Start off by applying a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”

IMG_4477

Apply a couple coats of a sheer pink polish as the base. I used Forever 21’s “Rose Petal.”

IMG_4479

To create the seashell, start off by painting a horizontal line where you wish for it to start on the nail. I Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and Love My Nails’ “White.”

IMG_4481

Then, paint a vertical line coming from the middle of that horizontal line, this should get wider towards the tip.

IMG_4482IMG_4483IMG_4484

Simply create similar lines on both sides of this vertical line until you reach the horizontal line. The lines should slightly slant more and more towards the horizontal line.

IMG_4485IMG_4486IMG_4487

To apply the pearl in the center of the shell, apply a blob of top coat/gel/nail glue, it is your choice but I went with top coat. Then simply pick up the pearl with a toothpick dipped in top coat or whatever you’re using. I used Pandahall’s “1 Box White Mixed Sizes Flat Back Pearl Cabochon” from Amazon.

IMG_4489

Do the same with the rhinestones except place one on each side of the pearl. I used Born Pretty Store’s rhinestone wheel.

Lastly, apply a generous amount of top coat to prolong the wear of the rhinestones and pearl. I used China Glaze’s “No Chip Top Coat.”

American Flag/Fourth of July Nails

Hi everyone! This is the nail design I decided on for this fourth of July season since I live in the United States. It is way simpler than it looks, especially if you do the dots instead of the stars. I thought it was a great, simple and patriotic nail look. I hope you all enjoy!

IMG_20170702_235452_855

Start off with a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”

IMG_4248

Apply a red polish as the base color, I used Kleancolor’s “Red Alert.”

IMG_4250

With a striper brush and a white color, paint stripe going vertically on the nail. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush, Apple Barrel’s “White” and “Bright Red” (for clean up) acrylic paints.

IMG_4252

Using a blue color, paint a rectangle in one corner of the nail. I used Apple Barrel’s “Cobalt Blue” acrylic paint.

IMG_4254

In the blue rectangle you can paint white dots, starts or even just one star. I decided on the dots just to make it simpler and because I feel like I have done stars a lot recently. I used an XS dotting tool to do this.

IMG_4256

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used China Glaze’s “No Chip Top Coat.”

Pink Stripe Pattern Nails

Hi everyone! This tutorial is for these somewhat simple pink stripe pattern nails! You can easily do this with just nail polish brushes but the lines look better when using a striper brush. You can also use whatever colors you would like as always. I hope you all enjoy! All products used are listed below!

IMG_20170604_173538_061

Start off by applying a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”

With the medium shade, apply a thick strip going horizontally across the middle of the nail. You can fix this up with a striper brush if needed. I used Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails in “Heart of Stone.”

With the darkest shade and a striper brush, apply a stripe in the center of the thick stripe just created and a stripe at the top and bottom of the nail. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and Max Studio’s “Pink Craze.”

fullsizeoutput_71aIMG_4144

Geode Nails

Hi everyone! Today I created my version of the oh so popular geode nails! I think they turned out pretty well, let me know what you think! These are super easy and you really don’t need anything but the nail polish brushes. They are perfect for beginner since one of the beautiful things about geodes is how imperfect they are, so there is no need to worry about the shapes. I hope you all enjoy!

IMG_20170529_154952_660

Start off by applying a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”

IMG_4104

Apply a neutral color as the base polish, I used Revlon’s Colorstay Gel Envy in “Well Suited.”

IMG_4106

With different shades of one color, I chose purple, apply big blobs or circular like shapes on the nail. Starting with the lightest as the largest on the bottom and the darkest in the center or top with a glitter. I used (in order) Kokie’s “Heavenly”, Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “No Hard Feelings”, Jenna Hipp’s “Tres Parfait”, Max Studio’s “Royal Affair” and Wet n Wild’s megalast in “Sparkle and Grey.”

IMG_4108fullsizeoutput_70dfullsizeoutput_70efullsizeoutput_70ffullsizeoutput_710

To add some more sparkle you can outline the entire nail with a metallic color. I used Winstonia’s “Fine Line” brush and Emori’s “Silver.”
