Easter Scene Nails

IMG_20170409_220930_181.jpg

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

IMG_3780

Apply  a blue polish as a base color for the sky, I used Revlon’s Colorstay Gel Envy in “Lovestruck.”

IMG_3782

With two different shades of green, paint wisps on the tip of the nails for the grass. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush and Craft Smart’s “Crisp Green” and “Light Green” acrylic paint.

IMG_3784IMG_3786

Using different pastel colors, paint some egg/oval shapes towards the tips of the grass. I used Craft Smart’s “Rich Lilac”, “Blue Sky”, “Soft Butter”, “Rosemarie”, and “Tangerine” acrylic paints.

Add some lines and dots to these eggs for decoration.

To create the bunny, add a white line on top of the grass for the feet. Add a half oval shape on top of that for the body and then an oval turned on its side on top of that for the head. On the top of the head and the opposite side of the feet, add two lines for ears. I used Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint.

Using an extra small dotting tool, paint multiple dots in a cluster towards the back of the bunny for the tail. With a pink color, place a dot towards the front of the head for the nose and slightly farther back place a black dot for an eye. I used Apple Barrel’s “Black” acrylic paint.

IMG_3792

Repeat the same steps for the grass so that it looks like the eggs and bunnies are in the grass and not on top of it.

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

Foil Nails

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

IMG_3628.JPG

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

IMG_3630.JPG

Next, apply some of the glue that will come with a foil kit, like the Ciate London foil kit I am using, apply as much or as little as you want. I used Ciate’s “Foil Fix.”

IMG_3632

Then, place the foil on the nail, dull side down, and gently press it into the nail. I used the silver foil that was in the kit.

IMG_3634IMG_3635

Repeat those steps with as many foils as you’d like. I only added one more foil and it was the pink one that was in the kit.

IMG_3637IMG_3639

IMG_3640

You can go back in and add more foil if needed. I went back and added some more to the edges of the nails so it looked more complete.

Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”

IMG_3601

Apply a base color of your choice, I used Essie’s “Fashion Playground.”

With one of the colors for your roses and a medium dotting tool place blobs all over the nails to start the roses. I used Ulta’s “Sugar Cookie.”

IMG_3607

With different shades of your chosen colors add details to the roses. To add dimension, place a dot on the roses and add some lines surrounding that, it is kind of hard to explain so I hope the pictures do a good job of explaining it. I used Red Carpet’s “Detail Brush”, Jenna Hipp’s “Rose Tart” and Sinful Colors’ “Soul Mate” and “Pink Forever.”

IMG_3609fullsizeoutput_6b7IMG_3613fullsizeoutput_6b8

St. Patrick’s Day Nails

IMG_20170312_213223_454.jpg

Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”

IMG_3568.JPG

Then apply a base color of your choice, I chose a green to stick with the St. Patrick’s Day theme. I used Sally Girl’s “Doup-812044.”

IMG_3570

With all of the colors of the rainbow and a thin detail brush, paint thin curved lines on the nail so that it looks like a rainbow is going across three of your nails. Try to make it look like it connects so have the next nail pick up where the last one left off. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush and Apple Barrel’s “Bright Red”, “Pumpkin Orange”, “Yellow”, “Christmas Green”, “Cobalt Blue”, and “Concord Grape” (all acrylic paints).

IMG_3572IMG_3574IMG_3576IMG_3578IMG_3580IMG_3582At the end of one of the rainbows (see how the one on my pointer finger is shorter) create a black bowl like shape for the pot. I used the same detail brush and Apple Barrel’s “Black” acrylic paint.

IMG_3584

With a gold color and a small dotting tool add some gold to this pot. I used DecoArt’s “Glorious Gold” acrylic paint.

IMG_3586

On my thumb a pinky finger I created a leprechauns uniform. I first used Winstonia’s “Medium” striper brush to create a thick black line going across the nail horizontally and closer towards the tip of the nail.

IMG_3588

I then used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush to create an outline of a square in the center of this line.

IMG_3590

Lastly, apply a top coat. I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”

Three Leaf Clover Nails

 

IMG_20170305_205854_956.jpg

Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”

IMG_3550.JPG

Apply a base color of your choice, I chose a green color for St. Patrick’s Day. I used a Sally Girl with no name #812165.

img_3552

To start the three leaf clovers place three sets of dots, one set horizontally towards the tip and the other two sets on each side vertically. I used a medium sized dotting tool and Sinful Colors’ “Happy Ending.”

fullsizeoutput_6b6img_3555

With a smaller dotting tool turn these dots into heart shapes by adding a triangle shape on the one end on each set of dots.

img_3556img_3557

With a dotting tool create a curved line similar to a “j” for the steams of the clovers.

img_3559

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”

Heart String Nails

img_20170226_230044_334

Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”

IMG_3524.JPG

Apply a base color of your choice, I used Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in “Lavender Clouds.”

IMG_3526.JPG

With a striper brush and red polish, create loops of string on the nails. In the end you want it to look as if the string was draped across the nails and connected. So if on one nail the line ends towards the tip of the nail, have the next line start towards the tip of the nail on the next one. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and Express’ “Naughty.” Start off by creating a curved line coming on from one side, then make an oval shape towards the tip of that and finish the curved line coming from the other side.

fullsizeoutput_6a6.jpeg

fullsizeoutput_6a7.jpeg

fullsizeoutput_6a8.jpeg

On one of the nails, create a heart that looks like it was made out of string. Do one half at a time and you want the middle pointy area to not be connected so it looks like string. This is basically just painting two very curved lines that intersect at the correct spots to make a heart shape.

IMG_3529.JPG

fullsizeoutput_6a5.jpeg

Go back and fix any lines with a detail brush and the two colors used. I used Red Carpet’s “Detail Brush.”

IMG_3536.JPG

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”
