Beautiful Bows

This is a lovely delicate take on a french manicure.

You will need:

  • White polish
  • Black polish
  • Clear polish

1. Do a normal french manicure with the white polish.

2. Do a thin black line above the white one.

3. Do two small triangles to form a small bow.

4. Complete with a clear top coat. 


This is a cute girly design than can be done in so many different colours!

You will need:

  • Pink polish
  • White polish
  • Yellow polish
  • A larger dotting tool

1. Paint the nails pink

2. Using a dotting tool, do the white petals on the flowers. This is so you know you have enough space to fit them in by doing the outside of the flower first.
    Do one corner on the nail with 3 or 4 flowers, and 1 flower in the opposite         corner.

3. Do small yellow dots in the middle of the flowers.

This is a picture of when i had just finished with the nail polish i used. I hadnt cleaned up yet so excuse the mess!

Pixel Chick

This nail art has a cool pixel effect to it which i love!

You will need:

  • Black polish (with small brush or pen)
  • white polish

1. Paint the base of all the nails white.

2. On the middle two fingers, paint squares in set on two in the top two corners, and the middle of the bottom.

3. On the thumb, paint squares over the outer half of the nail, making sure they overlap!

Shades of Purple

This can be done with any colour, but i chose purple :)

You will need:

  • 2 shades of your chosen colour
  • white polish

1. Paint the white outline onto the nails.

2.fill in the gaps with the different colours, dont worry if its messy.

3.Go over the white outlines again.

Winter Snow

This is more of a christmas look but as it has been snowing lately i thought i could get away with it. 

You will need:
  • White nail polish
  • glitter nail polish
  • a small detail brush
  • small gems

1. Paint the nails white

2. Paint glitter over the nails (but not the ring finger), putting more on the ends for an ombre effect. 

3. Paint a small snow flake on the ring finger, and then place a small gem in the middle. If this is too complicated then just paint the whole nail with glitter :)

  • White nail polish
  • Silver sequins/glitter
