Nail Art: Floral

 

It has been a while since I posted a nail art, and this one has been sitting in my folder for sooo long. This is an easy peasy floral nail art.

I chose the color pink, but you can pair it with any color of your choice.  This is one of my go-to nail art when I dont want to spend much time doing it. All you need to do this nail art is a dotting tool/ bobby pin/ tooth pick and your choice of nail polish. I like to do my dots using a tooth pick as it gives more uniform dots.

Do try this nail art and link back if you like 🙂

Valentine’s day Nail art – Part 4

cute love nail art

 

Hi

I’m really high on Valentine’s nail art this time. This is the 4th part of the series. You can check others here

Valentine’s nail art Part 2

Valentine’s nail art Part 3

Since Valentine’s is all about love and hearts and pinks, I incorporated all of this into one nail art. I always say that white is a great base color for nail art, but I wanted to use some other color this time. So I settled on this pink and white combination.

I wanted to make it a couple’s nail art but I had already done one before (Part-1 of series above *if you still haven’t checked it, go check it fast fast*). So being a student of biology, I drew the symbols of male and female as an alternative 😀

If you don’t know about it, male is represented by this symbol of Mars –  ♂ : a circle with an arrow pointing north-east. Female is represented by the symbol of Venus – ♀ : a circle with a small cross underneath.

I took the liberty of drawing a pink bow on the female symbol ^_^ (Okay, also to make it look like a female. Otherwise these are just weird shapes for a layman).

The black nail art pen I used went gloopy, that is why I couldn’t draw perfect circle and that is why they look alien-ish

Anyhoo, they still look pretty to me 🙂

I always always always do nail art on both my hands, no matter how shaky my left hand is. This is how my right hand mani looked. Not bad, haan.

I drew the hearts using the tips mentioned HERE. Super easy!

And finally I finished it with a glittery top coat on pink nails and some polka dot on my thumb.

Movember Moustache nail art

moustache nails

Can’t believe its November already. This year went by so fast (well this is a recurring dialogue every year, I know :D). But seriously, it feels like- where did the time fly? For me the starting of winters always have mixed feelings- the happiness for the onset of my favorite season, and the sadness for another year going so fast. Don’t you ever feel we are growing so fast. Wish there was a slow down button in life as well. *Sigh*

Anyhoo, since November is here and it is also the month for raising  awareness of men’s health issues (or Movember, as it is called), I did a nail art for same. Movember (Moustache + November) is the time when men from all over the world grow facial hair in attempt to raise charity for men’s health awareness- particularly prostate and testicular cancer. Read more about it HERE.
Actually I did not intend to make this a Movember nail art. I only painted my nails with yellow nail polish. And I couldn’t resist drawing little smileys on it. I accented it a little with moustache on ring finger. That is how I came up with this Movember nail art.

I am not among the girls who paint their left hand (non dominant hand) prettily and keep the poor right hand nails tattered and ignored (Yes girls in metro- flashing their pretty and well groomed left hand nails happily- I’m talking to you!). I never keep my right hand nails bare. I ALWAYS paint both hands, no matter it ends up looking wee bit untidy. And this is how it looked with this nail art.

I know the moustache looks weird okay, but still I managed to make it look like a moustache 😛
Don’t you think it looks like the moustache of old rural people who keep their moustache long and groomed.

Tribal nail art

tribal nail art

Hey everyone

I have a fascination for tribal things- tribal prints, tribal footwear designs, tribal jewellery. This is the first time I tried this trend on nails.

I wanted to keep it simple and easy so I didn’t use multiple colors and used only black for design.

pink tribal nails

I kept this nail art an Accent nail art, rather than doing it on all nails, mainly because it is less effort. Plus I didn’t want to hide the prettiness of my pink nail polish 🙂

I have a habit of doing my manicures at night. This is why you can see fabric marks on my nails.

Tools used: Nail striper (if you don’t have one, use an old eyeliner brush)

Nailpolish: NYC Bubblegum Pink

Hope you like it.

Love

Blossom 🙂

 

 

Rose Gold nail art: Dots & Bows

rose gold nail art

So the winters in Delhi aren’t a bad deal this year. A warm sunny day is just the thing one can wish for in this frigid weather. Give me a mug of coffee (chocolate milk will do too :P) and a good novel, and I can laze about the whole day. The radiant sun in winters is enough to light up one’s mood. And so is the color Rose gold. This color is very feminine. Very pretty. And so IN these days =D

Rose gold-2

I didn’t want to do a full fledged nail art (on full 5 fingers) as it would have masked the prettiness of this color. So I decided to accent my ring finger with teeny tiny harmless dots.

Rose gold nails-1

What else to compliment with Rose gold other than Bows!

Ooh and the mark you see on my index finger is the voting ink.

rose gold-4

This nail art reminds me of a vintage-y dress. Don’t know if it is Rose gold or bows and polka dots, but it sure does ring a bell.

You can check my other Accent nail arts HERE, HERE and HERE.

Stripe nail art using Maybelline colorshow

Maybelline colorshow nail polishes are such a rave these days, and I couldn’t help but pick some shades myself. Here is one nail art I did with a Colorshow nail polish. This one is Orange Fix.

orange fix nail art-1

I did a simple Accent nail art because I didn’t want the beautiful color of this polish to get masked by a full 5 fingers nail art.

I have not used a top coat here.

orange fix nail art-3

I added diagonal stripes on the Accent nail. Pwetty simple. 2 minutes job.

I am not going to talk about the pretty-ness of this nail polish color. That will follow in a subsequent full fledged review post that these polishes totally deserve.

Love,

Blossom 🙂

Green Stripes nail art

I have been wanting to do a stripes nail art for a long time. And finally when I sat down to do one, my patience level didn’t allow me to paint on all 10 fingers. So, I made it an Accent nail art.

Green accent nail art-1

I did a simple French tip on rest fingers.

Green stripes nail art-2

Now, after a few days the French tips started to chip away while the accent nail was still sitting pretty. So I thought of re-doing my nail art.

And another Accent nail art is what we did. It came out even better than the previous one 😀

I have got to start applying a Top coat. x-(

Green accent nail art-5

Anyhoo, its still pretty.

The red can be applied again as long as the accent nail remain intact. =D

The green nail polish used here is Faces nail enamel in shade ‘Forest Green 09’ (Buy HERE)

Red nail polish is Colorbar Pro Nail Lacquer in shade ‘Rosie 015’ (Buy HERE)
