Daisy Print Nails

A really pretty look & you only need 3 colours. I'm using RImmel Lasting Finish in Black Cab, then a gold & a white nail art pen.

1.Paint all your nails in your base colour, mines black. I use false nails most if the time so I don't use a clear base colour( nail protector/hardener ect ) so I just go straight in with the colour If this is going to be done on natural nails I would recommend a clear coat underneath so it doesn't stain the nail.

2.Make a few small dots on each nail, I find 4 is the perfect amount. I'm using a gold nail art pen from eBay.

3.With the final colour draw small semi circles around one of the dots, try & do four to make the flower look complete, then repeat around every dot on every nail.

4.Always finish with a clear coat using La Femme its £1.70 & it's my favourite :) & that's as simple as that Daisy Nails

Studded Nails

I love this look & it's so quick & easy to do, so today I did my sisters nail's, she bites them like crazy so I've put some clear false nails on her, there around £1/2 from eBay. So to start I filed her nails & glued the false ones on with nail glue, then cut & filed them to look natural.

1.So firstly I painted all her nails purple with a nail polish bought in a pack from primark, leaving the ring finger bare. I then painted the ring fingers with 17 Fast finish in Tigers Eye.

2. I then did a thin line of glue down the center of each nail, using a pack of sequins bought from eBay for £3 I placed gold sequins down the nail, I used a dried out nail polish brush to put them on. I did a double line of sequins on the accent finger.

3. As usual when all is dry, give a couple if coats of clear polish, I use La Femme its £1.70 from eBay & a really shiny long lasting polish. Simple as that :)

Girly Pink Stripes, Sequins & Bow Nails

This is a really girly look to go for im using some clear full false nails to show the design on, you can get these from ebay really cheap, when using false nails, make sure your nails are free of polish & oil so wash them before & file the whole nail gently.

1. So to start with im using 17 nail polish in Fairy cake, its about £2 from Boots, so paint all your nails with two coats of this first.

2. Then start on the stripes, im using a nail art pen by Ouli from ebay for £3, so on the middle & pinky finger simply draw stripes vertically down the nails.
3. For the bow, its really simple, with the nail pen on your thumb nail draw a cross, then starting in the center of the cross draw to line slanting down from the cross, then two slanted oval's pointing up from the center of the cross.

4. On the ring finger apply glue/nail polish whichever you have to the bottom corner of the nail & place small sequins on the top, i use an old dried out nail varnish brush to apply them.
5. Then on the last finger apply a line of glue/nail polish straight down the center of the nail & apply sequins over the top. As usual finish with clear nail polish & wallah :)

Candy Stripe/Earthquake Nails

I recently saw this look on Instagram on Wah Nails page (there amazing !) its really simple to do i always use false nails because my natural nails are rubbish & break all time :( so im using some clear full false nails i bought from ebay, i bought 600 for around £5 - bargain ! If your using these or any other false nails i'd reccomend filing your whole nail first ( i use nail files from primark £1 for a pack of three & washing them to make sure theres no excces oils on the nails, i sue a brush on glue by elegent touch, i get this from Asda for £3 its really strong & lasts for ages & doesnt damage the nail when you take them off. But this looks easy to do on your own nails too it doesnt need to be to precise. Theres links to all the stuff i use at the bottom of the page.
1. Firstly paint your nails with one colour for this ive used a bright pink nail varnish i got in a pack of four from primark for £2.

2. Then paint over half of the nail with your second colour ive used a glitter polish i got off Ebay you can buy these individually or in packs & they double as nail art pens there only around £1-£2 on there own, the line doesnt have to be neat, you'll go over in in the next step.

3.When everythings dry pick your final colour ive used a nail art pen by Ouli from ebay for £3 - these are amazing. Go over the center on the nail in a zig zag pattern, making sure your cover the line where the two colours meet, doesnt have to be reaaly neat - its meant to look like an earthquake :)
