Roses:first attempt

Hello! Today I'm trying out a new nail art :roses! Start with base coat and then we'll create a fading effect with white and 2 shades of pink:

Now we will work at the roses. First make a dot(or two on the ring finger) with a dark shade of pink.

Take a thin brush and a light pink and make a tiny dot in the middle of the big dot and then start making small half circles around it to create a rose effect.

Take a light green color and a thin brush and make the leaves, after that take a dark shade green and draw a stripe on every leave.

This what I used:

Fruit series: Strawberries

Hello, my loves! Here is another fruit design : strawberries ! I love strawberries, and as I was eating some today, I thought: why not make a design? So here it is. Start with base coat and 1-2 coats of a nude color.


Take a thin brush red nail polish and start drawing the strawberry just like this:

Take a thin brush and some green nail polish and let's make the leaves :

I made some little eyes and a smile, I think it's so cute:

After this, take a toothpick and some yellow nail polish and make some dots on the strawberry:

Since the design is so cute, on my other fingernails I only did some curves, to not overwhelm the strawberry.

And this is what you will need, hope you like the design!

Gradient blue and flower

Hello! Tomorrow I'm going to wear a blue outfit so i did a blue inspiration nails. After the base coat, I've started to do a gradient effect(I already have another gradient post here). Start with a pale blue and a sponge and apply it from the tip of the nail going downwards but stop before you touch the cuticle.

Do the same thing with a dark blue and stop in the middle of the nail.

You could leave it like this, but I though it's a bit boring so I did a little flower on the ring finger. I took a thin brush and a white nail polish and started to drew a flower and some dots around it. If you want to, you can underline it with pink like I did, I just think it's much more cute this way. I also placed a tiny dot of sparkle in the middle of the flower.

And here's what you'll need for this design. If you try it out, show me!

nail care:vitamins

Hello, girls! Today's lesson is about vitamins, what type you should take and why.

Vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta carotene are the "three musketeers" that continuously come to the aid of beauty by battling and quenching free radicals before they can harm precious and vulnerable skin. Fat-soluble beta carotene, for example, migrates to the skin, where it offers not only protection from free radicals from within, but from without, as well. It enables the skin to increase its exposure time to the sun before burning. But for some people with very sensitive skin can case sun burn. Likewise, vitamin E helps prevent free radicals generated by UV rays in the skin from doing their damage(Cuticle softener:rub the vitamin E oil on the cuticles of both feet and hands after bath or shower daily and at bedtime). Vitamin C, in turn, recharges vitamins E and carotene, and also prevents skin damage due to UV-generated free radicals. Vitamin C supports hair and nail growth by improving circulation. Useful as treating dandruff. May aid in preventing hair loss. Vitamin C increases absorption of iron, needed to prevent weak, pale or spoon-shaped nails.

Maintaining healthy natural nails is not as complicated as many may think. As with hair, nails are usually their healthiest in their natural state, requiring a bit of nail polish for protection and regular applications of hand cream as a moisturizer.
In fact, many argue that using natural nail strengtheners, which chemically cross link the nail plate, is actually a bad idea. Although they do make nails more rigid, they also make them less flexible and thus more prone to breaking on impact. It is actually more important that nails are kept flexible and moisturized.
Hope this was useful. See you later!

request: red and white flowers

Hello, babes! My cousin Flory came to visit me and of course she wanted a nail design, something simple , not too many colors, so this is it. You will need:

First, apply base coat. Taking a red polish and a pen, make 5 dots on the top of the nail.

Then quickly make a white dot on the center.

Now the magic begins:take a thin brush and start dragging from the white dot trough the red dots and then drag from between the red dots towards the center. I'm sorry I can't show you this, I can only explain.

If you want to, you can add some sprkles in the middle of the flower so the center wouldn't look so bare. I chose some orange sparkles. Enjoy!
