According to my housemates, painting my nails means that I must have too much time on my hands. So I took it a bit literally…

Theme Buffet: Geometric

Another day, another challenge! I was inspired by this avatar that I saw on the internet – and as all good nail art bloggers do, I decided to turn it into nail art!

The base is OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and the colours are Rimmel Lycra Pro in Navy Seal, Barry M Lemon Ice Cream, and Nails Inc King Edward Street.

I did the lines in a Barry M nail art pen in black. Unfortunately it all decided to crack (WHYYY??) but that’s life I suppose!

Theme Buffet: Leopard Print

I can’t believe I’ve never done a leopard print mani before! They’re really simple to do – it’s literally just a case of applying a base colour (Nails Inc The Southbank in this case), then using the brush from another colour nail polish to dab on some irregular shapes (I used Barry M Gelly in Blueberry). When that’s dry, use a nail art pen, or  a dotting tool, to partially outline each dot and create the effect (I used a Barry M nail art pen) and finish with your favourite top coat (I used Seche Vite).

This was the first incarnation of this mani, before I decided that it didn’t quite look ‘busy’ enough

So, I added some little marks on the nail, which look a lot like triangles with rounded corners. I used the same Barry M nail art pen to add in these marks, and finished with another coat of Seche Vite.
