Hello lovelies,

You know sometimes you get that one polish that you just don't know what to do with. Well my one was Cadillacquer Beyond The Walls. It's such a strange mushroom brown colour with blue sparkles. I was trying to think of some nail art that would look nice with it and in the end I have opted for a simple 'dotted French' design.

It's a very simple design but it added certain lace-y effect to it. I like the polish much more now :D

Cadillacquer Beyond the Walls is from the Seek The Fire collection (reviewed here) and is available here.

Hello lovelies,

 

I recon it's time for another nail art manicure with tutorial ;) I wanted something abstract so I created flower-like patterns made out of lines. My inspiration was a print I once seen on Etsy but it's been so long I couldn't find it again.

 

I have used Zoya Cole as a base colour and then acrylic paints for the design and dots. All sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.

And here is the promised tutorial. I have done it with a different brush as I couldn't find the one I originally did the manicure with so the lines are a bit thicker. But it will still show you how I've created this design :)

 

 

 

Few lines and dots and how cool it looks, huh? I really liked this design and that's why I additionally created a tutorial. It could be done with nail art pen or polish but the acrylic paint is just much easier to work with.

 

Have a lovely day and let me know what you think ;) Lucie x
