asian silk fabric nail art…

I didn’t really mean to make this look asian-y but it does remind me of asian silk fabric that has flowers embroidered on it.  The tiny flowers are fimo canes thinly sliced and adhered with clear polish.

Other hand is the opposite colour way, I think it turned out quite well!

Limey lime lime lime.  I bought my first slices of fimo decorations for my nails at the Richmond Summer Night Market!  Cute little lime guys that I just stuck on with clear nail polish.  Made the other nails a little different too and I really liked this fresh summery manicure!

This reminded me of old 1980’s floral curtains in the country.  I don’t usually do the whole floral thing but this one wasn’t too girlie 🙂

leopard and tiger print nail art

I am not really an animal print kind of gal, there’s always a sense of tacky to me even though I’ve seen it done very well in some instances.  I gave a go at animal print on my nails since it seems to be very popular in the nail art world.  Turns out it wasn’t as difficult as I thought and tigers and leopards can exist on my fingers at the same time!

I tried to do a wallpaper slash wrapping paper design that I ended up really liking.  Tiny brushes for the swirls and a pen dipped in nail polish for the flower applied as dots.

nail art green fade

Gradients and fades are little harder to achieve with nailpolish but can be done by applying the colour with a makeup sponge.  I kinda like how you don’t have to be perfect like a french manicure but it ends up still looking pretty cool!
