Rainbow Flakies

If you follow me on Instagram you might have already seen this one, since I couldn't resist posting it early. I used one coat of Wet N Wild - Black Creme as by base color and then added two flakie top coats over the nails. First is Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Black and second is Sinful Colors - Green Ocean. If you're a long-time follower you saw this exact combination in June 2012! :)

Floral / Cherry Blossom Nail Art inspired by H&M

This design was inspired by a bikini I saw at H&M. I used H&M - U Must Have This as my base color (including stained nails!) and then painted the flowers on top with acrylic paint. On top is one coat of Essence BTGN High Gloss.

OPI - You Are So Outta Lime - Halfmoon Lime Nail Art

Today's design is something I wanted to do for a while now: a half moon manicure with tiny limes. Since I got some lovely mint green colors I decided to go for it! As my base color I used OPI - You Are So Outta Lime (PR Sample) from their 2014 Neon collection. This one is not the classic neon green but it does have a hint of neon, which makes it look very different on camera. It's more of a light green and not the mint color you are looking at. I applied two coats over one coat of white. For the little lime halfmoons I used Maybelline - Chic Chartreuse and then painted the rest of the design with acrylic paint. On top is one coat of Essence - BTGN High Gloss. 

This is a scheduled post. I will be scheduling posts for the next few Sundays, but I'm trying to keep up with your feedback! You can follow me on Instagram, where I might post some nails during my vacations. Have a beautiful summer :)

Spring/Summer Splatter Nails

I haven't done splatter nails in a while and I thought I could include one of my new neons from the Maybelline Bleached Neons collection in a cute spring and summer neon splatter design. You can find out more about how I create splatter nails in my tutorial for DIY Decals. For this one I used Flormar - 400 as my base and then added Maybelline - Chic Chartreuse, Essie - Shake Your $$ Makers, Essie - Lights and Flormar - N006. The first pictures shows the design with a shiny top coat and in the second I'm wearing one coat of Essie - Matte About You on top.

Maybelline Acid Wash Effect - Mint-Acid-Ittude

I picked up one of the colors from the new Maybelline Acid Wash Effect limited edition. I chose the mint color called Mint-Acid-Ittude, but it was quite difficult to pick only one since they all look awesome. I love the effect and the fact that drugstore brands are catching up with the glitter sandwich trend! For these pictures I used three coats. Drying time was alright and the formula as well, but the glitter does need a bit of placing here and there. I used two coats of Essence BTGN High Gloss on top for an even surface (and some air bubbles).
