Hello!  Well it looks like autumn is here and I thought I would share a little tutorial for some autumn themed nail art!

For this you will need:

  • White polish
  • Yellow, orange and red polishes for your gradient
  • Brown or black polish
  • Dotting tools
  • Orange stick
  • Glitter
  • Nail polish remover
  • Cotton buds/brush for clean up
  • Top coat

So to start, paint your nails a white base coat.  My go to base at the moment is Rimmel White Hot Love.

Use a damp make up sponge to apply your gradient.  For a full tutorial on gradients, check out my detailed tutorial here.

And then carefully clean up using a cotton bud/brush and nail polish remover.

Next, using a dotting tool and a dark brown polish, start to draw out some branches.

They don't need to be uniform or the same on each nail, whatever fits/suits.

Apply another branch at the base of your nail if you've got space.

Then use a dotting tool to add some red and yellow flowers to your branches.

Nicole Diary - Full Nail Water Decals

Wednesday, 28 September 2016

Hello!  I've got some lovely decals to show you today from a brand I've not tried before - Nicole Diary

These were really great quality and easy to use.  I painted my nails with a base coat of white, and then as the pattern comes on a sheet, I cut to size, and then soaked in water then applied to my nail.

Simply file off any lose edges then finish with a top coat.  One thing I sometimes struggle with is that my nails can be too long for full nail decals, but these still had about 0.5cm room for maneuver which was great!

Easy blingy nail art

Saturday, 24 September 2016

I've got completely obsessed with blingy nails at the moment...  I've been away quite a lot so it's meant that knowing I won't get the opportunity to change my nails as much as I like I needed a manicure that'd be fun but would also go nicely with the majority of what I was planning to wear.

I've gone for a few nude/neutrals and then just added some diamantes arranged in various patterns on my nails.  Seal them all in with a top coat and they'll last you a few days.
