Gradient Glitter Green

This is an elegant, easy and a super quick nail art which comes handy when you want a fresh look in little time. For this nail art, start by applying a base coat. Then paint your nails a solid green color. I used a solid green from ULTA. You can use whichever green shade you have handy in your collection. Matte works out the best with this manicure. Let the green dry out completely and then paint the entire nail with holographic silver micro glitter. Next, reapply the same glitter over the top half of your nail. Lastly I used a glitter nail polish with small holographic hexes on the tip of my nails. Seal the look with a fast drying top coat.

Outlined Pearl

This nail art was inspired by the latest M.A.C Cosmetics banner that I caught a glimpse of at the mall. “Outlined Pearl” is a simple manicure with a pearl white base which is then bordered with a black striper. Start by applying a base coat. The paint all your nails a pearl white. I used REVLON’s Pure Pearl (#020). Let it dry. Using a black striper, border your nails from all sides. Finish the look with a top coat. I used the fast drying top coat by Seche Vite. You can also try this nail art with a matte white instead of a pearl white.

This manicure gives a jelly sandwich look. This indie nailpolish is so tempting, it looks like a cupcake decorated with colored sprinkles. I used my favorite top coat to seal the look: Seche Vite.

Free Hand Design

Since the time i was little i have loved art, color and paintings. I love decorating my nails with even the simplest of design. Today, I decided to paint my nails with a pattern that came to my mind at that very instance. So I grabbed a couple of my polishes 1. Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen and 2. A beautiful purple color by finger nails and ended up with a free hand design with the use of some nail art brushes and a white and a silver striper. Don’t you love this manicure?

I started off with my OPI base coat and then painted all my nails 3 coats of purple. Wait between coats for each of them to dry. Then use a white and a silver striper and draw vertical parallel lines on the right of the nail. Then with Mint Sorbet, draw some leaves on the left of the lines. Top it off with a fast drying top coat. I used Seche Vite.

A Starry Sky

A Starry Sky it a blue shaded ombre, gradient nail art design. Start with a lighter shade of blue on the base and then work with more darker shades with a makeup sponge. Base: Lighter shade of blue, Next: One shade darker blue. Third gradient color i used is purple and the last one on and around the tip of the nail is a navy shimmery blue. I then coated the tip with holo glitter to get the starry effect. I used seche vite fast drying top coat. I highly recommend using that top coat if you are not already using it. It dries in less then a minute and thus prevents any smudging from impatience.
