Today I have another nail art inspired by a post on Pinterest! This is super easy (even for beginners!) and I hope you try this out! It’s a simple pale manicure with some glitter and silver gems for a glamorous touch. Let’s get started!

First, paint your nails a pale, pink color until opaque. This may take two or three coats! After the polish had dried, take a striper and some gold glitter polish. Create curved lines coming from the top of your nail, ending at the bottom! Mine turned out more straight, so feel free to experiment and make funky, curved glittery lines! Next, apply some silver nail art gems anywhere on the gold glitter line. Place the gem near the top or bottom or even in the middle of the line! Apply a shining top coat and you’re finished!

I think this is a really easy and elegant look and the gems add a glamorous touch! I love this nail art and it’s really pretty ! 🙂

Let me know if you recreate these nails and be sure to share it on your blog!

Aside from the nail art, I haven’t been blogging these past few days and I’m really sorry! I’m planning to upload on the weekends, like Friday and Sunday, when I have time to blog! Another reason I haven’t been blogging as often is because I’m short of things to blog about! Grrr! I know! Please give me some blogging ideas in the comments below!:)

Thanks for reading and Jasper says hi! ❤

Vintage/Color Block Nail Art

Yesterday  I tried some interesting nail art inspired by a pin on Pinterest. I’m not quite sure what it is – vintage? Color block? The pin specified that it was vintage, so let’s just call it vintage for now! It look relatively easy, but it’s harder than it looks! My nail art is definitely far from perfect, but it was a fun design to try!Image

You Will Need:

  • white polish
  • pink polish
  • tape
  • top coat

I first painted my nails with two coats of the white polish. After letting the polish completely dry, I cut some tape and applied it on the top half of the nail, and other strip on the lower half of the nail. Make sure the tape is firmly pressed down so the pink polish won’t accidently run into the white. After you’ve taped your nails, take your pink polish and paint the remaining space of your nail where there isn’t tape. Try not to paint the tape, only the middle section of your nail. (Does this make sense? Lol. If you have any questions, just leave a comment and I will try to answer it.) Slowly remove the tape immediatly after painting the pink shade. Feel free to touch up your nails too. After the polish has dried, finish it up with a top coat!

I like wearing this on my nails!  I do need to get better at it though! Make sure to take your time and wait until the white nail polish is completely dry before applying the tape. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below! If you want me to do any specific nail art, let me know and I will get to it!

Do you think you will be trying these vintage/color block nails?
