The other day I felt like doing some watermarbling, but I wanted to do something different than the traditional «make flowershapes on all your nails» kinda watermarble design. So I decided to do just my tips, other than one accent nail. And it turned out to be very simple to do, with a quite pretty result. I just taped up my nails with some «french mani» stickers, and tape to cover the rest of the nail and cuticle, created a stripy pattern and dipped my nails in.
I think it`s quite a cool effect with the stripes, but you could of course create a different pattern if you try it yourself:)
I did not know what to call this design, so stamped chevrons was the best i could think of… I mean, it is kind of like one sharp chevron-ish shaped thing… kinda? Lol, I have no idea! But I wanted to stamp part of my nails with black and white, and leave the rest this beautiful blue, and this is how it turned out.
Apart from the not so crisp and straight lines, I am pretty happy with it. What do you think?
The first of the five polishes that will be released in my Etsy store on friday is Glistening Ocean. This is is a thermal polish that changes color, from a light blue to a deep darker blue. It also has beautilful holographic glitter in it. But enough chit-chat! The best way to show you this one is through pictures and video.
So, what do you think? Does it remind you of a blue, glistening ocean?
It has been a while since I have released any new Giddypolishes, but this Friday I will be releasing a whole new collection! It is called «Summer Memoirs», and is inspired by all those sweet summer memories that we are not really ready to let go of just yet, and one polish reminding us that the fall can be quite beautiful as well.
The collection consists of 4 thermal polishes and 1 that is not a thermal polish. In this post I will be showing you bottle pictures, and then I will be posting swatches of the polishes throughout this week.
I can`t wait to show you some pictures of what these all look like on the nails, and I really hope you will like them (There might even be a video of the thermal polishes in action).
See you very soon, with some swatches!
Looking at yesterdays mani, I really felt like something cute and pink again. And I ended up doing (read:attempting) a «pusheen the cat» design. I mean, can you even try not to «aww» when you look at the pusheen drawings!? Unfortunately, my «skills» don`t do it justice at all. But hey, I did my best, lol.
I was thinking I might do some more of these little freehand figures in my nail designs, and if nothing else, at least I will get some practise. I have been doing way too many stamped designs lately, so doing anything decent with my nail art brush isn`t all that easy anymore. And frankly, I could use a couple of new ones. Do you guys have any thin nail art brushes to reccomend?
It`s been a while since I posted anything here. Life just happened, and I wasn`t feeling all that motivated to keep blogging. But I thought I would start doing some nail blogging again now. While I have been away from this blog I have been posting on IG, but since not all of you are using Instagram, I thought I would show you some of my recent manis in the upcoming days. And I am starting off with this white, light pink and grey watermarble design that I did a few days ago.
I am so into watermarbling these days, although it`s really testing my patience. But if you try and try again, and get a bit lucky, the results can be amazing. And I am quite happy with the outcome of these, although the topcoat decided to make a couple of ugly bubbles. Screw you topcoat, I am posting these anyways, lol.
