30 days nail art challenge day 19

Hi everyone,

Today I’m super excited to show you the galaxy nails I created for day 19 of the 30 days nail art challenge! I’ve always liked the galaxy nails, but they seemed so difficult to make, so I never came to creating them. When I saw today’s nail art is about galaxy nails I immediately started searching on YouTube for tutorials and inspiration. After seeing some great designs I started creating my own. As a base color I used nr. 59 Black is back from Essence. With a make-up sponge, I applied the colors nr. 580 Blues Brother Vol. II and nr. 620 Captain Sparrow’s Boat from Catrice on top of it. To add some glitter, I used the CO4 Shake It! Flake It! (LE Million Styles) from Catrice. After waiting for some time to allow everything to dry completely, I continued using my make-up sponge and the brand less white polish. With this, I created diagonal, horizontal and vertical ‘lines’ across my nails. On top of the white I applied yellow and pink, again with the make-up sponge. The nail polishes I used for this are nr. 95 Wanna be your sunshine by Essence and nr. 030 Meet Me At Coral Island by Catrice. Then I again applied the glitter top coat, followed by a layer of golden glitter top coat. To finish everything off, I applied a final regular top coat. I hope you like the design, and I’ll see you guys soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 18

Hi everyone,

Today I made a half-moon nail design, which belongs to day 18 of the 30 days nail art challenge. Like the ‘nail art’ I created yesterday, again I don’t think the half-moon nails can be classified as a real nail art. Therefore, this will again be a short post, because there’s just nothing much I can say about it. The half-moon design is a nice variation on the regular french manicure or plain nails with just one color, but furthermore it isn’t really anything special. Creating this is easy: I first applied two layers of my brand less white polish, and then started creating the half moons using my Essence striper. The main color used is nr. 880 No Snow Petrol from Catrice. After applying a top coat, the design was finished! Below is the other picture, and I’ll see you soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 17

Hi everyone,

Today the adventure of the 30 days nail art challenge continues with the nail art of day 17. The challenge for this day was to create glitter nails. To be honest, I don’t consider glitter nails as a real nail art. It is just a special top coat you apply on top of the normal polish, so actually nothing really special. Nonetheless, as the challenge contains a glitter nail art, I made glitter nails! As a base color I used the polish nr. 60 (or 09, I have no idea, haha) by SOHO, which is a dark, burgundy red. On the pictures the color doesn’t really show, in real life it is a lot darker. On top of this I applied the nail art special effect topper nr. 11 Disco Disco by Essence. The end result is a clean and simple nail design, which isn’t very difficult to create and therefore a good option when you are in a hurry but still want your nails to look good. Below is the second picture of the end design, and I will see you guys soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 16

Hi everyone,

Today  I will continue with the 30 days nail art challenge. As I’m back from Paris and in the middle of my autumn brake, I’m planning to do lots and lots of nail art these upcoming days! But for now, without any further ado I will go on to the nail art of day 16. The challenge for today was to make a tribal print nail art, and as you might know I did this before! In this post I showed you the orange tribal nails I created. This time I chose completely different colors: black, white and grey. I used the polish nr. 59 Black is back from Essence, my brand less white and a mixture of the two to create the grey. The overall nail art turned out to be quite dark, which is something I would probably change if I’d recreate this nail art. Furthermore I think it looks fine, and I hope you like it. Below is the second picture of the nail art, and I’ll see you soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 15

Hi everyone,

After not-blogging for quite some days, today I’m back with another nail art for you guys. Today’s nail art belongs to the nail art challenge day 15 and it is supposed to be a delicate print. I don’t know what about you guys, but I honestly didn’t know what to do with this days challenge. After searching on google for some inspiration, I discovered almost everyone used stamping plates for this nail art. To me, this is not a real form of nail art, so I decided to just try and create an abstract pattern on my nails. The colors I used are nr. 880 No Snow Petrol from Catrice as a base color, and a mixture of white and nr. 400 Blue Cara Ciao from Catrice to create the stripes. As a finishing touch I applied the color Sea Pearl from H&M on top of the stripes, to give them a subtle shimmer. The end result is shown above and below, I hope you like it and I will see you soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 14

Hi everyone,

Today I made the flower nail art from the 30 art nail art challenge, which means that I’m almost halfway through the challenge! I still enjoy thinking about the design and creating every nail  art. I’m also looking forward to the final ten days, when the challenges will get more and more difficult. But enough about the nail arts that still have to come, and back to the nail art of today; day 14. I first wanted to make sunflowers on my nails, but I couldn’t get them right and I ended up making a completely flowers. The base color I used is nr. CO4 Drama Queen (LE Welcome To Vegas) from Catrice. I didn’t use this color for a long time, but when I look at it now I wonder why! It is a gorgeous black color with shimmer in it, and especially in the sunlight it looks amazing. Continuing with the nail art, I then used my striper brush and the colors nr. 880 No Snow Petrol, nr. 400 Blue Cara Ciao, and nr. 580 Blues Brother Vol. II from Catrice to create the flowers. I made the white center with my brand less white polish. I hope you like the nail art, and I’ll see you soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 13

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while, but today I have another nail art for you guys! The challenge for day 13 was to create a nail art with animal print. I didn’t want to go for the standard leopard of zebra nails, so when a friend of mine came up with the idea of cow-nails I created them as soon as I got home from school. As a base color I used my brand less white polish (I know, I use it a lot haha) and then, using my dotting tool, I created the black spots. For the black spots I used nail polish nr. 59 Black is back from Essence. On my ring finger I used the polish nr. 480 Miss Piggy Reloaded from Catrice. The nail art didn’t take long to create and looks simple but cute. I hope you like it, and I’ll see you soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 12

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re enjoying your free Sunday, and that you’ll enjoy the nail art I made today! As you can see, the theme of today was stripes. I used the color 850 Aretha’s R-E-S-P-I-N-K from Catrice as a base color, and allowed it to dry completely. Then I applied nr. 59 Black is back from Essence on top of it. Using a toothpick, I drew the lines in the still wet black polish in such a way that the pink underneath it showed up. It’s quick, easy and fun, and can be combined with a lot of colors! Another fun idea is to first make a rainbow gradient as a base color and then to add the black and draw the lines in it. Below is the second picture of this nail art, and I hope to see you soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 11

Hi everyone,

As I did day 10 of the 30 days nail art challenge yesterday, today it’s time to go on to nail art number 11. This is, as you probably noticed on the first picture, a polka dot nail art! The base color is nr. 860 Browno Mars from Catrice, which is a gorgeous brown color with a lot of sparkles and shimmer. The dots are made with my brand less white polish, using my dotting tool. It is a really simple and quick nail art, but I think it looks really cute! Below is the other picture of the nail art, and I hope to see you soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 10

Hi everyone,

Today I will show you my last nail art from the ‘first part’ of the 30 days nail art challenge! The challenge for day 10 is making a gradient nail art. It is possible you’ve seen more gradients on my blog, because I already showed one in this and this article. This time I decided to make a green gradient, using the colors nr. 08 Did someone say nude? (LE Season of extremes) from Essence, and nr. 240 Sold Out For Ever, and 340 Run Forest Run! from Catrice. I also used the top coat CO4 Shake It! Flake It! (LE Million Styles) from Catrice. Below is the other picture of this nail art, I hope you liked it and I will see you guys soon!
