Distressed Wood

Hi!
I needed something subtle and classy for a formal event. I was thinking black and white, but I ended up with these, wood with ikat-ish chevron.

Flourish

Hey!
Sun is back! Or at least here it is :). So today I'm posting a fresh spring-ish mani I did a while ago and almost forgot to post.
It was inspired by vector flourish pictures and nature. I originally wanted to add there some flowers too, but I liked it as simple as it was just with the green swirls.

Retro Chic (+tutorial)

Hey guys!
I have a tutorial for you today :). I was looking forward to posting this but I didn't get to do it until now. This design was somehow inspired by Boom Nails, who did several similar designs earlier. I took pictures during the process so I have a tutorial for you below and a short review of the base polish: Nubar InstaChic.

Sugar & Cream

Hey!
Todays design was inspired by something I was seeing around this winter, simple sweather-ish pattern. The base is Cuccio polish Sugar & Cream, a colour I would probably never buy myself, but I got the chance to try it for a review. It didn't really go well with my skin tone I think, but I surprisingly like it now, looking at the pictures.

Melting Stripes (+tutorial)

Hello!
I have a tutorial for you today! I haven't done any in a long time so I was definitely up for doing this one when I was asked for it on the Instagram after a posted a picture of this design. The design was partly inspired by Try My Hand, talented nail blogger who stopped posting about a year ago.
Besides the tutorial I'll be doing a short review of the Nubar #loveit polish you can see below, Polycolor acrylic paint and Platinum nail art brush.


Tutorial and my tools after the jump.

Midnight Tribal

Hey!
I hope you're all having lovely holidays.
I did today's mani few weeks ago, it was supposed to be Christmas themed, but it turned out other way. Still you can see little trees and tiny fish that I painted to get it at least a little bit christmasy.
The day after I painted this I left to Germany for the whole week and I didn't get to take photos with my normal camera. I had to go with my cell phone and as I didn't really have time to play around with nails, my photos are rather bad. Forgive me this time, please.

Brocade Nails

Hi!
Do you remember my baroque nails? I even made a tutorial for them! And today I'm showing you a new version of my baroque design. I used it just as an accent nail, it was a busy week but I still wanted special nails.

Limited Stripes

Hello!
I had no idea what to call this design. I did it a while ago for a mani swap with talented Swiftpolish (picture of the swap at the end of this post) and I got a lot of positive reactions - and I also liked it very much myself.

Tribal Chevron

Hey!
Today's mani was inspired by Very Emily, one of my favourite nail artists. It's all freehand and all Rimmel and acrylics. I loved this surprising colour combo and I knew I would recreate the mani the moment I saw it. For the tribal-ish design, I started with white base, made teal and violet chevron stripes and finished it with black tribal details.
