Hi! Three weeks ago I placed an order on Born Pretty Store and my nail art goodies have finally arrived! It was nerve-racking waiting for the parcel to arrive because although I ordered a small amount of items, they are all items that I will be trying out for the first time. I am super excited to try the nail art decals and then all the little rubber flowers are super cute! I will write individual posts on each set of items, but I was too excited not to share :). Here is a little sneak peek at what I’ll be enjoying nail art wise in the next couple of weeks.

Hi! This design looks amazing as the colors bleed into each other and create a watercolor effect. The best part about this design is no tools are required and it is super easy to do. Any color combination is game and it will still look super cool.

Hi! Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. The saddest thing about them is that they don’t bloom long enough. When I was visiting home earlier in spring, one of my mom’s pink peonies was blooming for the first time. The flower was a sight to see for it was 27 cm in diameter and utterly gorgeous. I documented it all and came across the pictures I took this week. Instantly, I felt inspired to create a peony floral nail art design.

Hi! Fun, bright and summery is what I was going for when creating this nail art design. First I wanted to do filled in triangle shapes, but as soon as I started doing my nails, I noticed how great empty outlines looked. That is why I chose to fill in only pink triangles and leave the rest as empty ones. I wanted to do something fun for my accent nail and thought of drawing a small diamond shape. Since it is made out of tiny triangles and would go along with the theme.

If you have a nail art pens, you’ll have an advantage creating this design, but just like in my last nail art design I am using gel pens as nail art pens and they work just as fine. I am thinking of writing up a post the topic of nail art pen alternatives, please, len me know if that is something you would be interested in.

Nail Polish used: essence base coat 24/7, Maybelline MiniColorama nail polish, gel pens as nail art pens, Gabriella Salvete top coat

Hi! This week I haven’t got around to doing any nail art, but I have drawn a few new nail art designs for a later date. I thought it might be fun to write up a little post on how I create my nail art designs.

1. I carry a little scribble book with me most of the time and if I don’t have it with me I use old bus tickets and drawn the design on them. You can get inspired at any time and as soon as you have an idea you should write it down or draw an outline of what it is you want to create later. It is really important that you do this, I know it saves me a lot of head ache when I can’t for the life of me remember what I came up with. Another tip is to jot down the color scheme you had in mind.
