Galaxy nails 2.0

Hi everyone,

Today I want to share with you these galaxy nails I created. When thinking of possible nail arts I could create, I remembered this technique I used a long time ago. I searched back for it on my blog and found it; over a year ago, I wrote this post about my galaxy nails. Today I decided to use the same method and the results can be seen below! I also included a comparison of the previous galaxy nail art I made and this one, to show the difference. The two left pictures are from the design I made a year ago, the two right pictures are from this week. Looking back at it like this, I think it is fun to see the progress I made with painting my nails!

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 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 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 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!

Roses nail art

Hi everyone,

Today I have another nail art for you guys, and this time it is with roses! I have made this nail art before with different colour combinations; a black background with red/white roses, a green background with coral/white roses and a couple of different variations. For now, I liked these colors because they are happy and bright. The nail art itself isn’t really difficult to make, so I will give you guys a quick how-to. As always, you start with a base coat, and two layers of the base colour. The colour I used is 240 Sold Out For Ever from Catrice. Next I used my dotting tool to make four dots with nail polish; two coral ones opposite of each other and two white ones opposite of each other. In the end I got a square of four nail polish dots. To make these dots I used the colors 030 Meet Me At Coral Island from Catrice and 01 Ahoy! from the 50’s girls reloaded LE from Essence. I used a thin wooden stick to swirl through the colours and in this way make the roses. I also made a white dot in the middle as the ‘heart’ of the rose. To finish it, I used the color 340 Run Forest Run from Catrice to make the leaves of the roses. At the end I applied a top coat and the design was finished! I hope you like it, and I will see you guys soon!
