Hi everyone! So something rather exciting happened, I got to be a guest blogger for Paper Thin Nails (amazing)! These are the seasonal nails I’ve been wanting to show you all and an edit of the post I did:
As its coming up to Easter I thought I would do some Easter inspired nails. Nail art is still a bit of a challenge for me but I spent some extra time deciding what to feature on my nails and planned out the colour family.
Here is a selection (yes, I used a couple others too!) of the nail varnishes I used to create the look and is undoubtedly the most nail varnishes I have used in one manicure. I also used hair pins as dotting tools and a piece of foil to blend some of the colours to get the right pastel shades.
The little finger used a custom blend with H&M Dusty Rose as a base. Please try to ignore the sad bow on Ciate lol, the bow came undone and I can’t re-tie it for the life of me – blame it on the nails! For the little chickie I used No.7 Nude, Claires *Black* for the eye and H&M *Coral Rose* for the chick’s beak. *Dorian Grey* by Sally Hansen was used for the middle finger with white stripes. The index finger used a custom blend with Barry M *Mint Green* as a base and a topcoat of W7 *Blue Glitter*. The thumb nail is Sally Hansen *Model Behaviour* and H&M *Play it Coral*.
I learned that practice, patience and perseverance are the key ingredients when it comes to nail art. I just hope that it pays off!
Wishing you all a lovely Easter.
