I'm still loving the waterfall design and how versatile it is. This contrasting color scheme is by far one of my most daring yet! I mixed my waterfall design with a color gradient nail to soften up the overall look.
I used Nailz Craze stamping plates from Etsy to create this swirly nail art. This particular design is from plate NC02. The coolest part is that it comes with an inverted version which is perfect for an accent nail. Start stamping!
Water decals are one of my favorite things to use when creating manicures! They’re so user friendly, budget conscious, and almost polish free. You can purchase these exact decals from BornPrettyStore.
Half-moon manicures have been around since the roaring '20s and is still a favorite in the fashion world. Celebs, bloggers, and nail lovers everywhere are rocking this tone-on-tone look. Learn how to easily create the half-moon mani look with your favorite nail polish colors!
Pastels have been one of my favorites all spring and summer, but this waterfall design is so versatile that it can be used for any season! Take this design into fall with a mix of darker colors. The green studs I added are from Born Pretty Store and you can now get them in a wheel with a range of colors and square ones in the mix too.
If you're looking for a way to shine, these out-of-this-world galaxy-print nails are just what you need! This nail design is easier to achieve then it looks! Grab a sponge, some polish, and visit The Nailasaurus for the full post and tutorial.
Monochrome was all over the catwalks for Autumn/Winter 2012, and it’s a trend that’s carried over to Spring/Summer 2013. Marc Jacob's SS13 collection, the catalyst for the monochrome craze, had me head over heels inspired! This nail art design may seem intimidating but once you discover striping tape, it's so easy!
This waterfall nail design is one I'm loving. There are so many possibilities for this design! You'll need a base color and a selection of other coordinating polishes for the waterfall. You can use a rainbow of colors, but shoot for four to six different shades. If you want to try it yourself, find the tutorial for the look here.
When the finalists for this year’s CDFA/Vogue Fashion Fund were announced, I found myself captivated by Musha Nonoo’s Resort 2014 lookbook. Here’s a nail art look that was inspired by one of her pieces.
Neon nail colors are a big trend for summer, although it’s perhaps not the most wearable nail trend we’ve seen in recent years. Full-fledged neon nails are daring and not always suitable for work but there are ways to wear the neon look while still keeping it low-key. Add a hint of neon to the tips of nude polished nails for a funky french manicure.
This drip nail art design is incredibly versatile. Add soft colors for spring, blues for winter, blood red for Halloween, or glitter for an all-around funky look. For this drip design you'll need a base coat color, a drip color, and a small nail art brush.
Independence Day is a serious time to celebrate and really show off your patriotic spirit! I can never resist creating a themed manicure whenever a national holiday rolls around. If you’re the same, look and see how I created this 4th of July nail art design.
The nails created for the Nicole Miller SS14 runway show at NYFW were a gorgeous gradient of shimmery champagne and black glitter. Taking my cue from Butter London’s Katie Jane Hughes, I created an easy tutorial for the look.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I created this nail art in the hopes of spreading awareness. Different shades of pink on each finger and a simple ribbon design make for a unique way to honor those touched by breast cancer.
Sometimes less is more and the simplest nail art can become extraordinary with a nice color combination! This very simple manicure features Picture Polish Whimsy and China Glaze When Stars Collide.
I always find it hard to match colors with coral so I had to experiment with a few before I decided on a couple of shades of purple. I’m really digging this new accent design which is somewhere between framed nails and the classic Ruffian.
