Mermaid nail art

Hi,
Today I'll show you my fish scale manicure which I easily created using the mermaid stencils from What's up nail art store. I started with a coat of Glitter Gal - Serpent black and then applied a coat of clear nail polish and let it dry. After placing the sencils, I applied Gosh - 540 Ocean and Shimmer Polish - Tracy using a sponge. Then, I removed the stencils and applied clear top coat. On my index and ring fingers, I applied some pearls and shell studs from Born Pretty store. I only fixed them on the nail using clear top coat. What do you think?

By the way, don't forget to use my 10% discount code MKAK31 with any order on Born Pretty store.

Happy nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you another old manicure that I never got to post. For this one, I started with a coat of white nail polish on each nail and then created the colourful gradient. I applied pink, yellow and green polish on a sponge and then transferred them on the nails. After that, I stamped the happy faces design from Bundle Monster's BM-304 image plate and finished with clear top coat. What do you think?

Moroccan nail art

Hi,
Today I'll show you my Moroccan manicure which I easily created using What's Up Nails stencils. I started with two coats of Rimmel - Tangerine Tent on all nails and then applied clear top coat. After letting it dry, I stuck a stencil on each nail and then applied No7 - Totally Teal and Golden Rose - Holiday #58 using a sponge, so as to create a beautiful gradient. After that, I unstuck the stencils and applied clear top coat. You can find the Moroccan stencils here on their website. On my ring finger, I applied a green rhinestone and then applied some small golden studs around it. What do you think?

Turquoise animal print nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you an old manicure I never got the chance to post. This is a really easy to do mix and match. The dark blue polish is Rimmel - Adam n Eve it and the turquoise one is China Glaze - Too Yacht to Handle. On my middle finger, I applied the two nail polishes over a white base, using a sponge. The animal print on my ring finger was created freehand, using a thin brush. At the end, I applied clear top coat to seal in everything.

I'd also like to show you a manicure I did on a friend's nails a while ago. All was painted freehand. The nude nail polish is Rimmel - Let's get nude. What do you think?

Kiwi nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you another easy to do freehand nail art. I started with two coats of Golden Rose #18 as a base colour for my manicure and then created a white dot in the middle of each nail. After that, using a thin brush I created some white radial lines and then added the small black dots to represent the seeds. Finally, I sealed in everything using clear top coat. 

I'd also like to show you a manicure created on a friend's nails. I stamped the palm tree design from MoYou London's 12 plate. What do you think?

Summer polka-dot nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you another colourful dotticure. I started with two coats of Sinful Colors - Innocent on half of my middle and ring finger's nails and Rimmel - Tangerine Tent on the rest of my nails. Then, I created the dots using a dotting tool and white nail polish at first, so that the yellow polish I applied next appeared brighter and the contrast was more powerful. The yellow polish used was Avon - Inspire. On the green nails, I applied gold chain which I got from Born Pretty store. I finished with clear top coat on all nails. What do you think?

Roses nail art

Hi,
Today I'll show you a new stamped manicure which I created using one of Born Pretty's new image plates. I started with two coats of Avon - Iceberg white on all nails and then I transferred the roses design on the stamper using black stamping polish. The image plate used for this nail art was BP-73. After that, I filled it in using China Glaze - Too Yacht to Handle and China Glase - Sun of A Peach and added a coat of clear nail polish so as to unstick it all at once and transfer it on the nail. You can see more details about the procedure in the picture below. I finished with clear top coat on all nails. What do you think?

The stamper I used for this manicure was Born Pretty's rectangular stamper.

I finished with clear top coat and added a 3D ribbon decoration from Born Pretty store on my accent nail. The ribbon is part of a 3D decoations box which you can now find on sale, for only $3.59. So don't hesitate and order it right away!
