Hawaiian nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you a pretty hawaiian manicure done with Konad m29 image plate.
I started with two coats of my peachy franken and then I applied
Illamasqua - Gamma and Konad - Pastel yellow using a sponge.
I stamped the palm trees and the Aloha sign on my ring finger. After that, using
a thin brush I made the birds and heap under the trees. On my ring finger I applied
some fimos and finally I applied a clear top coat.

Emily's Nail Files was my source of inspiration. What do you think?

Cherry nails TUTORIAL


Hi,
Today I'll show you a cute cherry manicure.
All you need for this is a dotting tool (I have this), a thin brush and some nail polish.
Here's the step by step:

After applying the base color, which for me was a light pink but you can chose any color
that you like (I think that a white, yellow or blue nail polish will suit perfectly), I made
some pairs of dots using Illamasqua Allarm.

Then, I took my Special Green from Konad and applied thin lines above the red dots for
creating the leaves.

I also made some "shiny shadows" with a thinner dotting tool. The nail polish used is
White Matt Dull polish from Born Pretty.

At the end, I applied the Sweet Color top coat.

What do you think?

LaROSA - Crackle Shatter

Hi,
Today I'll show you a cute crackle manicure.
I applied Catrice - Dirty Berry as a base color. Then I applied my mint franken from
the middle of the nail. On the tips, I applied Jesse's Girl - JulieG.
I used LaROSA- Crackle Shatter for getting the final effect. I noticed that the thicker
I apply the shatter, the big crackles I get. I like this one a lot. You can get it from NaildeRoyale.com
for $4.99. What do you think?

Navy manicure

Hi,
Today I'll show you a cute navy manicure.
I started with a white base color and painted over it Illamasqua-Allarm on
my ring finger and Pure Ice-French Kiss on the other nails. I didn't paint the hole
nail with blue or red because I created that half moon section on the top of my nails.
I stamped the dots from m79 image plate using Jolfin-Blanc.
Finally, I applied a clear top coat.
