Spring Peach Floral Nail Art

springpeachfloralnails

I know . . . another floral design, but they’re so easy to do! :) I’m never completely satisfied with how my petals turn out, but I didn’t have much difficulty with them this time around. The flowers are more abstract, which I like. I used Sinful Colors Cinderella, a light blue with pink shimmer, for the base color. That took about two coats, and it applied  thickly and unevenly. Even though I really like the color I don’t use it often because of the consistency. I’m not sure if it’s just my bottle or what – I’ll put some thinner in it and see what happens. Apart from white, I used  Sinful Colors Nail Art Take Me To Heaven for the leaves and Kiss Nail Art Soft Blue for the flower centers. The peach in the flowers is also from a Sinful Colors striper polish, but unfortunately the name was torn off when I bought it, so I don’t know what it’s called.

Spring Floral Nail Art

Sorry my posts have been a bit sporadic lately, but this past month has been hectic for me, so I’ve been trying to think of easy and quick designs to do. I only used the polish brushes for this nail art and a white striper for the outlines. To give the background a watercolor effect, I chose several colors of polish then wiped the brushes so only a little bit was left when I dabbed them on the nails.

I’ve recently started working on a new Neiru Challenge that I’m really excited about! It’s more involved than the last one I did, but I can’t wait to share the nails I’ve created :)

Easter 2015 Nail Art

I’m a bit late with this post, but I’ve been really busy and haven’t had much of a chance to upload my nails. For Easter nails I tend to do more pastel designs, but this time I wanted to do a design that was bright and more cartoon-ish. I think the bunny turned out super cute and I love the big egg on the middle nail. I kind of messed up on the yellow nail egg pattern and had to fix it with some white polish, which unfortunately looks really obvious, but I’m still proud of it!

Spring Yellow & Green Color Blocked Nails

I’m so glad the snow is finally melting where I live – it was nice for a while, but Spring can’t come soon enough. In anticipation of the warmer weather, I decided to break out my greens and yellows (colors I love but don’t use enough) for a more lively look.

I went with Sally Girl Canary and Ciaté Apple & Custard. The green applied well, but I had to do a couple extra coats of the yellow because my bottle is almost empty and half dried out. I got some slight bubbling and it took forever to dry, but I really like it. I free-handed the white lines with a striping polish.

Easter 2014 Nails

I really love this design! It didn’t take me that long to do both hands either, which is a plus. The base colors I used are: Sinful Colors Mauve (thumb), Sparitual Epiphany (index), Sinful Colors Unicorn (middle), Brucci Kathy’s Baby Blues (ring), and Sinful Colors Olympia (pinky). For the details, I used the Phantom Frights Nail Art Pens in Black and White. I love these so much and have been using them constantly! It’s so much quicker than using a brush.

Originally, I had applied black rhinestones for the eyes, but I didn’t like the look at all. So, I removed those and painted the eyes instead. I had a difficult time fixing the yellow base afterwards, so it looks a bit messy from up close.

Daisies & Fuzzy Nails

I noticed I’ve been doing a lot of floral designs lately, but they seem so perfect for Spring. This is my first time using flocking powder and I’m really happy with how it turned out. I just sprinkled it over a wet coat of Sinful Colors Most Sinful, the beautiful deep blue. I patted it down a little, but didn’t add any top coat, because it would ruin the effect. I was a bit skeptical at first about how long it would last, especially with hand washing, etc. But it only had slight wear on the second day, and I wasn’t being careful with it. I also have red flocking powder I’m excited to use as soon as I think of a design.

For the petals on the daisies, I used Art Club Nail Art White, painting them on with the brush it comes with. I then used Hurricane Nail Art Yellow and Sinful Colors Nail Art Time Off for the centers.

Spring Flowers Nail Art

I’m so glad Spring is finally here! For this design, I started with Sephora by OPI Dear Diary… a pretty semi-sheer pink. Then, I did the green french tip with Fresh Paint Honeydew and the stripes with Art Club White. For the flowers, I used Kiss Nail Art Soft Pink and Soft Purple, Hurricane Yellow, and Piggy Polish Blue-ming Romance. The leaves are a combination of Kiss Nail Art Bikini Green and Sinful Colors Nail Art Simple But Fun.
