The other day I was feeling super summery, and longing for some sunshine! I decided to break out some of my brightest nail varnishes, and this is what I came up with:-
It reminds me of an exotic sunset! Really makes me wanna go on holiday. Here’s how I did it: I started with a BRIGHT orange base, Models Own, Hed Kandi. Even with the flash off, it’s still so vibrant!
Then I sponged on some hot pink, which doesn’t have a name on the bottle but is a Kelly Brook polish that came with some nail caviar beads of the same colour.
It can be quite messy! But you can easily clean the edges up by dipping a cotton bud in some nail varnish remover. Or I strongly recommend getting your hands on some Leighton Denny, nail corrector fluid. Best Christmas present ever! It seems to just dissolve nail varnish on contact! Amazing. Then I added a black palm tree using my nail varnish pen and a couple of silhouettes of birds, and bam! Bright, summery, holiday nails!
Today’s post is for my Little Sister, Jessica! When she’s not too busy being the most awesome little sis in the world, she has been known to bake a few delicious cupcakes here and there.
So I thought I’d do an adorable cupcake manicure in her honour! For Jessie!
How did I create this sickly-sweet, totally cute work of art, you ask? I’ll show you!
Step 1:- First, apply a thin base coat. Then, using a strip of Sellotape, section off the end of your nails leaving a little more room than if you were doing French Tips.
Step 2:- Using Barry M – Bright Pink and Models Own – Lilac Dream, use a nail art brush to paint thin vertical stripes down the ends your nails.
You should be left with something like this…
Step 3:- Using my White nail art pen, I added some icing to the cupcakes.
Step 4:- I decided they still weren’t quite cute enough, so added some cartoon faces with my black nail art pen, and rosey pink cheeks as sprinkles! Topped off with a sprinkle on the top!
Finally, seal using a clear top coat to prolong the life of your manicure and VOILA! The world’s cutest cupcake nails (if I do say so myself) for the world’s best sister!
Hello there, readers!
Today’s post has been made in response to my first fan request!! Just to let you all know, that I do receive and read all messages sent via the Contact page here on FingeredByFournier.com!
This post is for Rachel, who emailed asking if I could do some nail art based on The Muppets, as she wanted to see what I’d come up with. Well Rachel, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! This one’s for you!
I am NOT going to tell you how long this took! (hint: it’s longer than 5 minutes, less than infinity!!) But I don’t think it looks too bad! Not sure what occasion I could wear these nails for, but whatever the case, I’d be the coolest kid in the room!
Keep those messages coming in, readers! And who knows, maybe next time YOUR request will be featured, with a personal shout out to you and everything!! HOW EXCITING!!
I feel all warm and fuzzy now (lol puppets are fuzzy, too! The Muppets are puppets!) *ahem* …think I’ll end on that note
Hey guys! This post is just a quick one.
Me and my boyfriend were watching TV tonight while I was deciding what to do on my nails. Jurassic Park was on. He gestures at the TV and says “Why don’t you do this? Do the Jurassic Park logo! Reckon you could? Including the little happy dinosaur?” -challenge accepted!!
The dinosaur on my thumb I did freehand using a black nail varnish pen, copied from the Jurassic Park logo which I googled and kept referring to the whole time! The thumb alone took like 20minutes!
I’m not even gonna attempt to do this on my right hand! Far too intricate for a left-handed jobby. But Boyfriend is quite impressed with it, so thought I’d show you lot too!
*that means “over and out” in Dinosaur.
