Ombré Glitter Nails

I love the finished result of these nails ! Ombré is a pretty easy look to achieve 

You can choose colors that compliment or go bold and pick two that clash. Experiment with different combinations and see what works.

Your best bet is to get a  big bathroom sponge and just cut sections off when You need them. The sections don't have to be perfectly cut, as long as one side is flat it will work. You can use absolutely any sponge - a makeup sponge, washing up sponge or any other kind of sponge you can find. I just blended the edges with the polish brush - just wipe any excess polish if it first.

Using the first  of your colors, paint your nails and wait for it to dry completely.

Starting at the tip of the nail, apply the polish using less as you get further down the nail 

Apply a top coat & your done !

Girly Pink Polka Dot Nail Art

For this you'll need - two different shades of pink polish, white polish, black polish, top coat, dotting tool & studs.
I feel this is pretty self explanatory so no need to give instructions.

Negative Space Nail Art

I'm loving the negative space look with nails at the moment, it stands out so much & people always take a double take. I've had loads of compliments if these nails & loads of requests to recreate them on people too ! 
Simply pop your striping tape across the centre of your nail, paint over with re colour of your choice, take the tape off & finish with a top coat ;)

Aztec Nail Art With Studs

Excuse the terrible quality of this photo, was taken on my phone, at night :/ any way for this look I painted every nail in  this turquoise shade, for the two Aztec nails I painted half white then with a black nail art pen simply drew zig zags over the white half & finished with a stud in the centre using my brush in glue by Nailene I stuck the gold studs on the remaining nails & finished with a coat of Seche Vite Top Coat.
I personally love these nails although I know there a bit ott what do you think ?

Blue, White & Gold Nail Art

So I dug out my striping tape & thought I'd give it a go again, everyone into nail art needs to buy this stuff, it's literally pennies from EBay ! 

So I painted 3 fingers white & 2 blue, then using my striping tape I applied it to the white nails in a square pattern. Now my initial plan was to paint over in gold then peel away the tape & have the white pattern underneath, however when I applied it to each nail I much preferred the gold stripes so neatly cut away the excess & finished with a top coat. I then popped some gold studs on the he nails with a bit of Nailene glue.
Went over everything with Seche Vite & here's the finished look
Hope you like :) Let me know what you do with the striping tape ...
