Geometric Triangle Nail Art with Tutorial

Happy Friday evening! I hope you're all having a great start to your weekend so far. This nail art has been stuck in my computer for a while, but I'm finally letting it free. I decided to push it out of the computer nest and out into internet land. A couple months ago my boyfriend got me a super cute and comfy dress from American Eagle and I thought that it would be an awesome design to make into nail art. The dress has an awesome triangle print on it. It's triangles upon triangles upon triangles. I love it. If you want to see the dress make sure to check out my video tutorial below!

I started this design with a base of China Glaze Man Hunt. It's easily one of my favorite blue polishes from China Glaze. It's such a rich dark blue and it's application is almost perfection. For the triangle pattern I used white acrylic paint from Apple Barrel and a small #000 brush from Winstonia

If you want to see how I created this design on my nails and if you want to give it a try yourself, then check out the video tutorial below!

Simple Mermaid Inspired Nail Art

Hello everyone! How are you all doing today? Today I have a simple mermaid inspired nail art design. I recently broke one of my nails all the way down to the skin (OUCH!) and I had to cut it completely off along with the rest of my nails so they were all even. I've been getting a few requests for nail art for beginners with really short nails. Using glitter and simple gradients is a great way for beginners to dive into the nail art world. So for all you beginners out there... Give something like this a try! It doesn't have to be mermaid colors either. You can choose any of your favorite colors and put them together.

The polishes I used for the gradient nails are Motives Cosmetics Wedding Dress and China Glaze Tart-y For The Party. The gold glitter nail was done with China Glaze Angel Wings. The green nails were done using a combination of two different polishes. I was just going to use China Glaze Flour Leaf Clover, but then I remembered that I had China Glaze Atlantis and immediately had to break it out and use it because I absolutely LOVE, I repeat, LOVE that polish. It's kind of hard to find so I like to use it sparingly. I also used silver holographic hex glitters that are from Born Pretty Store on the gradient nails and placed them along the free edge of my nail and up the side of my nail. To seal everything in I used the Lasting Finish Pro top coat by Rimmel.

As always, here is the video tutorial so you can give it a try! Have a great day everybody!

Stripes and Floral. Serene Sketch Artist Nail Art

Hey everyone! For this post I have a nail art design that was inspired by a dress from ModCloth! I was contacted by them and was asked if I'd like to create a design inspired by one of their dresses and I said of course! Making nail art that is based off of fashion is one of my favorite things to do because there are so many patterns and designs available to use as inspiration. The dress below is what I used for my inspiration. You can find it HERE. I love everything black and white, floral, and striped. Looks like this dress is a perfect match! The dress isn't available quite yet, but it says that it's coming soon! While you're waiting for this dress to be available, you can check out a ton of other super cute and fun summer dress at:

I used Motives Wedding Dress as the base color and for the rest of the design I used black acrylic paint.
