Nail Designs

Nail art/designs have been blowing up lately, so I've been cautiously dabbling. There are some lots of great blogs out there (Something Polished is a fave) that I've been taking inspiration from. Don't fret if you don't have all the OPI's, or Essies that are showcased in blogs, or youtube channels. They are pretty expensive, and you can achieve the same looks with some cheaper polish alternatives.

Here are some of the nails I've been sporting over the last couple of weeks.

(Above) Glamour nail on the ring finger. Here I just took a pink glittery polish (Sally Hansen Xtreme wear, in Strobe Light), and layered it with a black crackle/shatter finish (Avon's Mosaic Effects)
(Above) This was inspired by a video from Lisa Eldridge's Youtube Channel. Modern French Nail, using Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Steel Grey as the base, and OPI's William Tell Me About OPI on the tips.

(Above) Essie's Pink Diamond as the base. A white polish on the ring finger, and I made the dots using the Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen, in Black.
