It’s a green kind of day

Hi everyone,

Today’s nailart is a combination of stripes and a gradient. I used various shades of green over a white base, to make the colours pop and be able to add the neat white lines between the colours. I created these lines by using striping tape and placing it horizontally on my nails. The different shades of green I used are ‘Stylenomics’ by Essie, ‘Run Forest Run’ by Catrice, ‘Wasabi hint’ by L’oreal, ‘Sold out forever’ by Catrice, and ‘Did someone say nude?’ by Essence, from the limited edition collection ‘Season of Extremes’.

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!

30 days nail art challenge day 5

Hi everyone,

Today I have the blue nail art challenge for you guys, which belongs to day five. I decided to make a skyline nail art, inspired by cutepolish. I first made a gradient on my nail with the colors nr. 400 Blue Cara Ciao and nr. 580 Blues Brother Vol. II from Catrice. I then made the buildings with my black nail polish Nero from Gosh. The windows are made with the color nr. 865 Yellow Sub-Mandarin from Catrice. I then used my white Essence striper to create the stars and the moon. I had a lot of fun making this design and I love the way it turned out. I hope you guys like it to! If you are also doing the 30 days nail art challenge, then link your blog in the comments, so I can watch your creations. Below is a second picture of my design, and I hope to see you guys soon!

NOTD; coral gradient

 

Hi everyone,

Today I have another gradient nail. At the moment this is really my favorite, easy ‘nail thing’. I like the fact that it can be made with all different colors, and that it looks really good with only a little afford. On the picture you can see a little rough texture on my nails, which is caused by the make up sponge I used to apply the nail polish with. I also made an other article about gradient nails, which is a little more elaborate about how to get this manicure. So be sure to check that out! I hope you liked this real quick Nails Of The Day, and I will see you guys soon!

Blue gradient nails

Hi everyone,

Today I want to show you my favorite nails of the moment. I make gradient nails when I don’t have time to make a full nail art or when I’m not in the mood for something difficult. A gradient is classy, beautiful and fairly easy. This time, I used three colors from Catrice: nr. 400 Blue Cara Ciao, nr. 410 Pool Party At Night and nr. 580 Blues Brother Vol. II. I will quickly explain to you how I made this gradient;
 The equipment consists of nothing special: a base coat, preferably three different shades of the same color nail polish, a make-up sponge, and finally a top coat. First apply the base coat on your nails, let it dry and then apply the first color to your entire nail. It is useful to start with the lightest color, then the other colors wont need more layers to cover. Let this dry to and then drip some nail polish on a piece paper. Dip the make-up sponge in it and pad the nail polish on your nail. Cover a approximately 2/3 of your nail. Make sure you create a nice overflow of the two colours. If needed you can even apply the first color with the make-up sponge on the ‘border’ of the two colours to make sure it looks good. The next step is to apply another layer of the second color if needed, but when this isn’t necessary you can just continue with the third color. Pad this color on approximately 1/3 of your nail, and make sure you make a smooth overflow again. To finish it of, you can apply some glitter on the top colour, but of course you don’t have to. End with a top coat and your gradient nails are done!
