Beautiful nails, as a symbol of status, can show one’s good manners and temperament. Nail art, also known as nail design, refers to the process in which one’s nails are sterilized, cleaned, cared, maintained, reshaped and eventually beautified according to one’s requirements; including the shape of one’s hands, nails, skin and the color of clothing. Nail art boasts diverse characteristics.

Gold ornament - printing nail foil


I have been studying new nail art technique these days. Unfortunately I didn't have the right UV painting gel for that purpose, so I tried with Black Pool Shellac ( gel polish). To be honest it doesn't work so well with it.
Lucky me, I found distributor for UK of this paint and ordered it and hopefully will get it delivered next week (not like with the delivery of my new builder gel - 2 weeks even that supplier is based here in UK).
Lets see now what I managed to create using gel polish.
Lets say first that these are my natural nails and I do not like applying any UV gels or gel polishes, therefore I used a mixed way of doing it.
I put base coat on the nails except on the accent ones. On them actually just on half nail. Then I buffed little part where I needed to apply black gel polish, because it sticks on rough or sticky surface.
I put two thin layers and cure each of the 2 mins. Then placed nail foil to print. After that I covered with gel top coat only that part with the foil and cured for 2 mins, cleaned with wipe off solution.

Then under the printed foil painted the nail in white or red. At the end covered the whole nail with Seche Vitte top coat.

Holograaphic Nail Polish

Good Evening,

I am practising  a new nail art technic, which I will show in my next post, but now will see another quick, but effective way to do your nails, especially when you are short of time

 I have used holographic nail polish from Perfect, applied in two coats. When you apply the second coat make sure the first one is well dry, otherwise it will shrink. On the accent nail just painted half of it and made lovely hand made black flower with silver glitter in the middle, and some white dots.
Then sealed it with Seche Vitte top coat.

St Valentines Nails

Happy St Valentines!

This post will be dedicated to two valentine designs I made yesterday.

 The first one is on artificial nails(extension). After the base coat, I sponged the red polish Barry M Hi - Jelly edition Blood Orange 322 onto the nails and then cover with glittery top coat. All the drawings are hand painted with acrylic paints.

The second mani you see here is on natural nails. Silver polish is 2 True Pro Sequins, applied in two coats and the until still wet placed heart glitters and sealed with Poshe top coat. On the ring nail and thumb I made V - shape French and drew a heart with the same colour polish, which is KIKO Laser Nail Lacquer 432 - again in two coats. Added some glitter on the smile line and sealed with |Poshe top coat.

Foil Flash & Flowers

In my second post will show how I used one of my new decals, which I got yesterday.
I applied Foil Flash 219 from Maybelline Colour Show in two coats, except two fingers on each hand, which I left to apply on flower decals.

 Its a lovely silver polish with brocades in it.

 I took a closer look picture to be able to see them.
And then finished my mani with Seche Vitte fast dry top coat.
And done.
Have fun.

Good Morning!

This is time will make nail polish review. This time is another one from OPI collection No Top Coat. It is a metallic chrome colour with reflective mirror finish. ITs name is Push And Shove NL G30.
To get the ultra chrome finish, be sure to start with Lay Down Base. Apply a thin coat and let it dry completely. Then apply two thin coats of Push and Shove. DO NOT USE TOP COAT. It is intended for One Night Only wear.

Hope you like that colour as much as I do, even that after one day will be ruin the effect.

Crystal nails


Wow new month started and I haven't made any post so far.
 Today I made crystal nails on one girl and cant wait to show them to you..
They have been made (by me) over acrylic set and then sealed the crystals in CND Shellac. So buff the nails well, apply two coast of desired colour and on the second coat without curing place the crystal and then cure. Then apply shellac top coat and cure again.  The black nails are just regular matte colour.
