Nail of The Day ;0) Opening Presents

Hi Hi! 😀

I randomly impulse on one nail- the thumb!!!

I was thinking of a Christmas-y type of thing and decided on a little girl peeking inside the Christmas present box.

I started off with a red box shape in the middle of the tip of my nail.  Added some gold glitter for the ribbon. A flesh colour for the face along with green and black eyes and ginger hair with a little pink bow. I also outlined the box to make it pop out a bit more.

What to do:

First step is the basecoat. I used two coats of Barry Ms Basecoat, Topcoat and Nail Hardener.

Apply the black nail polish. I used Seventeen Gel Colour Black Cat.

Wait to dry!

I then painted the middle of the nail all the way to the tip leaving a black outline using a yellow nail polish but you can use a slightly yellowy green or a regular green nail polish. I used Etude House Juice Recipe in Banana (https://theheartofnails.wordpress.com/2017/09/26/etude-house-juice-recipe-nail-polish-banana) I applied two coats.  

Wait to dry!

I used a nail art tool and a green nail polish to make the stitching. I used Etude House Handmade Jam in Green Tea.(https://theheartofnails.wordpress.com/2016/11/22/etude-house-handmade-jam-nail-polish-review-green-tea) At this stage I also tidied up the black outline around the nail while waiting for it to dry then I applied the silver on top of the green stitching. I used Rita Ora’s Rimmel Pedal to the Metal.

Last step is the Matte top coat. I used Barry Ms Matte Topcoat,

Done!! 😀

My Nail Art: Metallic Diwali

Hi Hi! 😀

Diwali is on its way this week and so I decided to do another manicure for it but I decided to go a slightly different way.

What you need:metallic diwali

Basecoat

Topcoat

Silver colour nail polish

Gold colour nail polish

Dotting tool/toothpicks/Nail art pen

 

First step is the basecoat. I am using Barry Ms Basecoat, Topcoat and Nail Hardener. I used two coats.

Wait to dry!

Next paint your nails alternating between your gold and silver nail polishes.  I am using Seventeen Quicker Slicker Fury. Click the link to see review-https://theheartofnails.wordpress.com/2017/10/10/seventeen-quicker-slicker-nail-polish-fury-review and Rita Ora’s Rimmel Pedal to the Metal.

Wait to dry!

Next make the candle holder. Using the brush that comes with your nail polish just swipe an angle halfway down your nail from the left to the bottom right corner and then halfway down again from the right to the bottom left corner. If you get confused see photo. Also remember to use the gold on the silver and silver on the gold nail polish.

The last bit is to add the flame and you can use whatever nail art tool that works best to make a tear drop shape. You can then add a top coat if you wish I chose to keep it the way it looked.

A message to anyone celebrating HAPPY DIWALI AND A  VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 😀

First step apply 2coats of your basecoat. I am using Barry Ms Super Mani 7 in 1 Nail Treatment.

I chose to have the pointer and the ring finger as the green ones. I used China Glaze Flying Dragon please click link for review-https://theheartofnails.wordpress.com/2017/05/30/china-glaze-nail-polish-review-flying-dragon and Seventeen Colour Carnival Green Gold Shimmer.

Thumb of Fire ;op

Obviously with a dragon you got to have some fire so for the thumb I have done this mix of orange red. I have used Rita Ora’s Rimmel 60secs Super Shine Tangerine Tent please click link for review-https://theheartofnails.wordpress.com/2015/04/07/rimmel-60-seconds-super-shine-by-rita-ora-nail-polish-tangerine-tent-review and I used Etude House Berry Delicious Strawberrry Souffle Strawberry Jam https://theheartofnails.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/etude-house-nail-polish-review-berry-delicious-strawberry-souffle-strawberry-jam-8. The best way for me to create the fire effect was to wipe of the nail polish on the side of the bottle as much as possible and just randomly dab the two colours. You could also use a makeup sponge and dap the nail polish that way if you prefer.

The pointer and ring finger dragon scales. I used a green nail polish and randomly splotched it on the nails to create a slight two tone effect of the scales. I used Seventeen Colour Carnival Emerald Green please click the link for the review-https://theheartofnails.wordpress.com/2016/05/31/colour-carnival-by-seventeen-review-emerald-green

The last two nails are the dragon eyes. I first used the red nail polish and a nail art brush and tried to create some blood vessels in the eyes.

Wait to dry!

Using a nail art brush outline the shape of an almond for the pupil of the eye. Then fill in with a black nail polish. Lastly add a large white dot and a little dot slightly away from the first for a reflection and you are done :D:D

Apply your top coat and you have your dragon inspired manicure :D:D:D

Next using a thin brush and black nail polish make the feathers. I used Rimmel 60secs Super shine  Black Out.

The last bit is to add a small black dot in the middle of the dark blue dot.

Next for your hot dog using a brown nail polish make a slightly curved sausage shape in the middle of your nail from the cuticle to the tip of your nail. I used Ruby Wing’s Cupcakes and Champagne Cinnamon Buns. Two coats! (I really need to invest in a nice brown nail polish ;0P). 

Wait to dry!

Mustard and Tomato ketchup. You will need a small dotting tool and your red and yellow nail polish. All you need to do is start from the top and make a wavey line down your hot dog. As you can see in the pic I alternated the side each “sauce” was on each nail. I used Collection Work the Colour Lady in Red and Rimmel 60secs Chin up Buttercup.

My Nail Art!: Dark Valentine

Hi Hi! 😀dark valentine nails

What you need: 

Basecoat

Topcoat

Black nail polish

White nail polish

Striper/dotting tool/ nail art pen

What to do:

First step is to apply a base coat. I used two coats of Barry M Basecoat Top coat and Nail Hardener.

Wait to dry!

Apply your base colour which is the black nail polish. I used a coat of Rimmel 60secs Super Shine Black out.

Wait to dry!

Now for the hearts using a white nail polish with  a dotting tool or striper. I used Etude House Sweet Idea Bunny nails Dalmatian Bunny- white nail polish. What you need to do is imagine a heart that you are trying to fill with angled lines. I chose to free hand it but to make it easier you can use a cut out shaped heart using tape to fill in. I tried to fit in four or five lines angled to the right. I have two shorter lines on the left and three longer lines on the right (see pic if you are confused)

Last step is the top coat and you are done, a slightly different kind of Valentines manicure but its still pretty cute 😀

Happy Valentines Day! :D:D May you and your Loved ones enjoy this special day 😀
