Pastel cheetah print nails

Hi ladies!
Many pictures that look kind of the same today, but I didn't know with ones to choose haha! :)
Today is the last day of #nailartmay.. I'm not sure if I'll do the #nailartjune challenge, but maybe?
Well anyway, today's challenge was pastels, so I went with a simple cheetah print design in pink/coral and some red.
What do you guys think?

Polishes used: (from left to right)
Lumene Gloss&Care: 26 Warm Spring
Lumene Gloss&Care: 45 Dawning
Sina: P87

Have a great weekend everyone!

Light blue dove nails

Hi everyone!
Time for day 28 of #nailartmay on Instagram and the theme was animals. I decided to go with doves because I think these type of nails are so cute. 
The birds are painted freehand and then I added on some microbeads. But.. I don't know why the microbeads that were dark blue bled out all their color all over my ring finger! :(
So don't mind the blueish stains on that finger. What do you think about this manicure otherwise?

Polka dot nails

Hi ladies! Here comes today's nail art.
It's day 22 of #nailartmay on Instagram. I can't believe that may is almost over already!
Well anyways, the challenge was polka dots so I chose a light mint greenish color, white dots and some glitter accent on the ring finger. This is a very easy design for beginners as well, so  let me know if there's any of you out there that would like a tutorial on this super-easy design just let me know! :)

Polishes used:
Mint green: Lumene Natural Code, 13 Spring Spirit
White: Isadora, 603 Tip White

Light pink and orange gradient nails

Hi everyone!
Sooo, second nail art of the day, but this one wasn't for me, it was for my Mum. :)
I did a very settle gradient in pink/ peach/ orange.

Colors I've used are:
Orange: Lumene Gloss & Care nr. 29 Quivering
Peach: Lumene Natural Code nr 14 Coral Crush
Pink: Lumene Natural Code nr 17 Funky Flower

After I've done the gradient I added one coat of a slightly glittery polish, also by Lumene Natural Code.

Strawberry Nails

Here comes day 20 of the #Nailartmay challenge on Instagram: Strawberry Nails.
I started with painting all fingers red, then did my first glitter gradient ever! What do you think? :)
And then painted the green "leaves" on the strawberries. I also used some strawberry fimo cane sticks that I bought earlier this year from Thailand. Also that a first timer!
I like the result, especially the glitter gradient, and it looks so much better in real life. 

Oh, and I know, when I took the pictures I still hadn't cleaned up the mess on my fingers, therefore some red paint under my thumb etc...

Pink Spring Nails

Hi! First of all, I know I haven't posted in over a week but a was on a lovely holiday on Crete! :) I hope you understand I just took the week to relax and enjoy. Haha but I did miss painting my nails so that was the first thing I did this morning!

But back to business and today's nails: First of all I wanted to show a spring nail polish swatch.
This is the color I used as a base for today's design. It's the perfect summer pink polish. It comes from Lumene, and is nr 27 Bright Day.

And then to the design: some wine red/ light pink cherry blossoms. So cute for spring, don't you think?

#Nailartmay on Istagram. Day One!

Hi lovely ladies! I hope you've had a great start on May! :) Feels like April just started, time's flying past.
But back to the nails on top. @Californails on instagram is each month hosting a Nail Art Challenge. Any nail art enthusiast understands the fun of it, right? So every 2/3 days there's a different theme for nail art and then you just have to try to finish as many of the themes as possible. Oh, and hash-tag them #nailartmay.
But anyways, this months first challenge was flowers, so here we go, a lot of spring time colored flowers on my nails! :) 
So this month you'll all get to follow my nail art through this challenge.
