Hello all and happy new year! I haven’t been online much over the Christmas period so a few festive nail designs left to upload, it is still winter after all… I started off these ones as just tasteful stripes but then I couldn’t resist adding the snowflakes on top. My flatmate thinks it looks like wrapping paper which is OK by me! More on the blog as usual.
Can you tell I bought some nail art supplies recently? These nails are done using gold and silver foils, which I bought from Born Pretty Store. I painted on my base colours (Urban Outfitters Cocktail and Crowded) and cut my foils (which come in little folded sheets and are very, very thin and light) into smaller squares. Then nail by nail I painted another coat and pressed the foil onto the nail varnish while it was still sticky. I used a wet cotton bud to smooth out the foil and then pulled off/trimmed the edges, before sealing with a topcoat. I think it looks pretty cool and I’ll definitely try more colour and design combinations. I imagine nails that were completely foiled would look good as well!
