I had planned a night of experimenting tonight. Whilst watching Bridesmaids and eating Cadbury's Chocolate coated popcorn - both well worth investing in.
I laid out the polishes ready to try the marble effect nail art.
Take note of those two little polishes at the back, those 2 nail art polishes from Technic and the Nails Inc at the front saved the night!
So, anyway I did try the marble effect and it was a complete disaster. I'm not even going to show you the state my nail was in. Just take my word for it, disastrous!
I decided to take a different approach. I'd been wanting to try blossom nail art for a while but honestly didn't really have the confidence in my nail art skills but after the disaster that came before what did I have to lose right?
I used the Nails Inc Bluebell as a base
This is still one of my favourite polishes, by far.
Ok! Forgive me here BUT I wasn't confident I could pull this off so there are no step by step pictures here. I will of course bring you a tutorial at some point but to do that I would invest in some nail art pens. I used the Technic polish set I got from my Twitter Secret Santa and I'm pretty impressed though I think I gave myself a headache concentrating so hard with the little brushes.
Anyway, sorry about rambling!
I painted a black branch type design on each nail, then a series of pink dots finished off with a centre white dot and voila!
I'm really chuffed with the results considering it was my first attempt! I'm even going to show you my right hand (not a great picture as I was trying to hold the camera in my left hand!)
I'd thoroughly recommend giving yourself the chance when it comes to nail art - you may just surprise yourself! I know I'm bursting with little designs to try!
Hope you like them!
