I love nail art, and am lucky enough to have some friends who also love nailart, too. Today, I've gone back into the vault and pulled out some looks that I have done on my friends' nails! For someone like me who isn't a nail tech and is used to the shape and angles of my own nails, it can be a fun challenge to adapt to another person's nails.
I did Carolyn's nails another time, and she knew she wanted "Waterfall Nails" after seeing some online. I showed her The Nailasaurus' tutorial, and she was hooked. I did this version using Sinful Colors Tidal Wave as the base, and also Sonia Kashuk Rain Check, OPI Eurso..Euro, Priti NYC Blue Wedgewood, and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Grape Going.
'Nightmare Before Christmas' nails I found on Pshiit, so I did my best to recreate them on her. The base is Milani Black Swift, and I also used CrowsToes Cheshire, and a white striper, and a stamp for Jack's face.
this mani that I did for Chelsea's graduation last year, and loved the stamp so much that she wanted a version of it. The base coat for most of the nails is Sally Hansen 24 Karat, with accents in Deborah Lippmann Honey Bee. I stamped using Finger Paints Black Expressionism.
I don't know if I could do this for a living - there's always a discrepancy between what the client has in their head and what I'm able to put on their nails! It's fun to do with friends who are appreciative of having fun nails for a few days, though.
If you had a chance to have me do some nail art on you, what would you ask me for?
