These are some butterfly nails I did a while ago. Instead of the usual monarch colors, I used a more blue/purple gradient underneath the black outlines. Using Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac and Wet n Wild Putting on Airs, I created a gradient, added a topcoat, then used black and white acrylic paint to create the wings.
I’ve seen countless nails using this design, so I’m not sure where it originated, but credit to whoever did – It’s a really cute design!
For this prompt, I decided to copy this arrow pattern I found online. Using a multitude of colors, this took a while, but I was pretty satisfied with the results.
I applied one coat of Zoya Purity, then I made a gradient using Zoya Purity and Zoya Charlotte, with Purity near the base of my nail and Charlotte at the tip. After adding a topcoat, I used striping tape to create the arrow shapes. I added yet another gradient, this time using, from the base of the nail to the tip, Zoya Sia, Wet n Wild Putting on Airs, Revlon Eclectic, and Sinful Colors Let’s Meet. I put on one last topcoat and that’s it! This took a longer time than usual, as I had to (impatiently ) wait for it to dry before adding the tape.
Anyway, that’s it for this post! See you soon!
First off, what is up with this name? Red Red, that’s strange.
This is a pretty cheap brand of polish, so I was pretty impressed. Red Red is a bright red, leaning pink, that needed two coats for full coverage, no topcoat below. It definitely lives up to the Wildshine brand expectations. However the formula was a little thin and hard to control, which can become an issue since reds tend to stain easily. Taking this polish off was a pain, it left pink stains on my cuticles which took a few days to come off.
Anyway, this polish lives up to expectations and I’m happy with it.
Happy New Year everyone!
*I did touch up these photos around my middle finger’s cuticle. I had a slightly red and swollen part because of a hangnail.*
This is kind of reminiscent of summer, I miss it already!!!!! So I have some basic palm tree nail art. I used Wet n Wild Putting on Airs, Zoya Mosheen on my thumb, pointer and pinkie fingers, and some white acrylic paint. It took a couple of tries for my palm tree on my ring finger; I kept wiping off the paint with a damp paper towel- why I love acrylic paint.
So for the stripes prompt I did a kind of stripe gradient, as you can see, starting with one stripe on my thumb and ending with five on my pinkie. I used three coats of Wet n Wild Blazed; it has a very squishy appearance. So I laid some nail tape down and used one coat of Sally Hansen Big Smoky Topcoat. Even though it happens to be a bit streaky I really like it. instead of just finding two colors that match, I just grab this.
