Tribal Nails

Hi everyone! I hope you're enjoying your summer holidays!
This is my nails atm. On top is my left hand (painted with my right one... SO MUCH prettier than the other one) But at least you get to see both hands this time LOL. I've been wanting to try this tribal/ Aztec theme for a long time actually. I think it's so cute and summerish.

Glitter gradient nails

Hi lovely ladies!
These nails are from earlier this week, and as I said in my previous blog post, I've been out of town. So here comes finally some pics taken with my camera. 
I didn't have a lot of time when I was painting my nails so I just did a purple glitter gradient using two different glittery polishes. I hope you like it!

Polishes used:
Gina Tricot - 129 Sparkling silver
H&M - Confetti
Lumene Natural Code - 47 Lovely Lavender

Pink dream catcher nails

Hi ladies!
Here comes today's nails, dream catcher nails/ pink-white gradient. I got the idea from a nail art page on istagram and I think the result is so cute! :)

I've used my favourite white nail polish by Isa Dora and a pink one from a market in Thailand. I also tried acrylic paint on my nails for the first time (to make the dream catcher).

Green Ikat Nails

Hi lovelies! 
I finally gave Ikat nails a try, and I really like it! :) Sorry for the not-so-good pictures... The weather has been awful today in Finland! Rainy and the sky is really grey, so there's no good light for nail art pics outside. So I took these pics inside instead but my hands look really pink and pale. They're actually really tan! Well at least the nail polishes turned out in their real colors, and that's the most important after all!

I haven't used any fancy nail polish brands for this design.. The dark green is from a market in Thailand and the light green is by H&M.

Cosmic Girl - My first attempt at Galaxy Nails

Today I decided it was about time I tried doing galaxy nails. I've thought about it for a long time, but somehow every time I've sat down to do my nails I've forgotten all about it, haha!

It's actually really simple to do, just begin with a black base(preferably glittery), and sponge on a little blue and purple and paint some small dots and "stars" in white. And voila! 

Products used:
Black base: Lumene Natural Code, 34 Cosmic Girl
Blue: Lumene Natural Code, 9 Live It Up
Purple: Lumene Natural Code, 14 Party On
White: Isadora, 603 White Tip
