smART Nails Bouquet Stencils P048

Another floral mani using Bouquet Nail Stencils - Item Reference P048 from  smART Nails.  10 stencils per pack, 2 stencils with 3 flowers and 8 stencils with 2 flowers in different sizes.  Over a blue shimmer base I applied the stencils and painted different colours for each flower.  Some of the colours have run into each other and I quite like that little mistake!  I applied top coat once the stencilled patterns were completely dry to avoid smearing of the design.  I'm really pleased with the way they turned out and I only used 2 of the 10 stencils per hand.  Stencils are a great way to create nail art.   Simply peel off the stencil from the backing paper.  The stencil is transparent so you can see exactly where to place it on the nail.  Press onto your dry nail and make sure there are no air bubbles.  To reuse the stencil I put the painted stencil on the plastic packaging the stencils came in, wiped the polish off with nail polish remover and it was good to use again.
I highly recommend these stencils because they are easy, effective, fun, inexpensive and a great way to decorate you nails.

Knitted Effect Nail Foil from Charlies Nail Art

An argyle pattern is made of diamonds and most layouts contain layers of overlapping motifs, adding a sense of three-dimensionality, movement, and texture. Typically, there is an overlay of intercrossing diagonal lines on solid diamonds.  The argyle pattern is derived from the tartan of Clan Campbell, of Argyll in western Scotland.  Argyle knitwear became fashionable in Great Britain and then the USA after the first world war.  And now you can wear an argyle knittered pattern on your nails with clever Knitted Effect nail foil from Charlies Nail Art.
It's a full coverage foil with cream, burgundy and red knitted stocking stitch argyle pattern.  The two manis I've created look quite similar but if you take a close look you'll see the stitches run in different directions.
If you've not tried nail foils before they are a doddle to use.  Apply a special nail foil adhesive over your mani and wait for the glue to become transparent.  Then place the foil on top of your nail and gently rub with your finger, hoof stick or cotton bud and in seconds the design is transferred to your nail.  Apply top coat to seal and you're done!

The Knitted Effect Nail Foil currently cost £0.39 and will easily cover 10 nails.  Available at Charlies Nail Art who have an huge range of nail art items.

MoYou Nail Plate 308

September is flying by and soon it'll be October which means.....Halloween!!!   So today's mani has a spooky feel using stamping plate 308 from MoYou Nails.  I'd describe it as a grown up plate rather than a jokey/fun plate with its Celtic crosses, Ankh cross, spiders, skull, bats et al.  I used an orange and red block base and stamped with MoYou Nails black stamping polish.
MoYou Nails plate 308 is from their '4 Seasons' collection and is currently £4.99 and the MoYou Nails stamping polishes are £4.99 each with great offers on sets of 3, 5, 6 & 10 bottles.

Tropical Fish Nail Stickers from Charlies Nail Art

I've discovered spotted water marbling and I was so excited by my first attempt at doing it I knew exactly how I was going to use it - with Tropical Fish nail stickers from Charlies Nail Art.  So here are two manis I've created using the stickers.  The first one is with a brown, dark & light blue gradient (sand & sea) and the second with a light green base and a dark green spotted water marble for a tropical turquoise sea theme.  I'm really pleased with how they turned out and to have little fishes swimming on my nails.  Nails don't have to be boring, they can be fun & creative and using the stickers are simple enough.  There's an assortment of 22 fishes per pack and also includes star fish & seaweed.  What game do fish like playing the most? Name that tuna! Where do fishes work? The Offish!  Oh silly me!
