Digital Underground

I was really unhappy with the mani I'm sharing today so I ended up wearing it just for one day. However, people on Instagram liked it, so...

I used polish from The New Black and the motive was inspired by the collection name: Digital Underground. The set I used is called Heathered, plus I used two polishes from other sets.
I chose to paint circuit board, not sure if I was successful, you decide.

Triangle Trash

Hey! I have something really special for you today. I want to show you design inspired by our art class project. We had a task to make dress from unusual material, you know, the kind of dress you can expect from high school students attending art class.

We (my two friends and I) chose to make dress out of garbage bag and white wallpaper, inspired by Op-Art. I did a lot of thinking before I painted this design. I wasn't sure how to transfer the idea of the dress on my nails.

I have to warn you, this post is picture heavy and long, longer than usual, I think.
Keep reading too see my inspiration!

Floyd Colorblock (+tutorial)

What's with the title you ask? Floyd? Pink Floyd? Oh yes, but not the way you think. Floyd is the name of The New Black ombré pink polish set.

These polishes are perfect for colorblock, their small brushes make it quick and easy. They are two-coaters, some more opaque than others, the least opaque is the middle one (photo below), might even be a three coater. The one I loved most is second one from the right, pink cream with barely visible shimmer.

I wore this mani during Valentine's Day, it was ideal: I didn't want to have hearts and love stuff on my nails but I didn't want to ignore it entirely. This pink design made it.

Red Waterfall

And again, I needed a mani to match my dress. Red dress, this time. But (as you might have noticed) you can't see red designs here much and there is a reason: I don't know how to wear red nail art. Sure, I can go with roses, but this time I wanted something different. Well, it didn't end up very original, but at least classy, right?

I used two coats of NYC Base Coat, acrylic paint (red and white) and NYC Turbo Dry top coat. So yes, it is my naked nail under the red waterfall.

Tropical Tribal (+tutorial)

Hi! I'm in a rush right now, so I'll make this quick. Today's mani was inspired by Coewlesspolish's design from June 2013. My work in nowhere as neat as hers, but hopefully I'll get there one day.
plus these nails looked way neater in person, I swear :D

Oh yes, I chose pretty bright colours; I got bored of winter being dark and dull.

Tuto and more after the jump!
