Half Moon / Upside Down Mani Tutorial

If you love a simple look in your nails but are sick of the traditional French Manicure this look is perfect for you ! So easy yet so effective ! 

Step 1 - Apply 2 coats of your chosen polish - I used China Glaze Dandy Lyin' Around 

Step 2 - once that's completely dry apply  a tip guide to the bottom of your nail leaving about 1/2 a centimetre gap 

Step 3 - Fill in the gap with your 2nd polish I used China Glaze Cleopatra 

Step 4 - once completely dry peel back the guides & finish with a clear top coat, I used the Patent Leather top coat by China Glaze

Monochrome Polka Dot Nails

Simple monochrome polka dot nails ! 
This is perfect if your in a rush, paint 4 nails white leaving your chosen accent nail bare, then paint it black, I used dotting tools but you can use a nail art pen, a pencil or even your nail varnish brush if your precise, go over the white with small dots & finish with a clear top coat, I used Seche Vite !

Snowflake Nail Art

Winter snow flake nail art, so easy and this was the first time I tried it ! 
Paint 4 nails one colour - I chose a red China Glaze, then paint the 5th nail another colour, I chose white by China Glaze. I used nail art brushes for the snowflake design, literally just draw three lines coming out if the corner of the nail, then draw small little lines coming out of them. Then fill in the gaps with little dots.
I finished with a Seche Vite top coat !

Holographic Gel Nails

I'm obsessed with gel nail extensions at the moment, not the best thing for your nails as they are a little damaging but if taken off properly & not applied too long they should be ok ! 
I bough this polish on eBay a couple of weeks ago it's by Headline Colours & was £10. I have to say I'm in love with it, it shines amazingly in the light & catches everyone's attention - even men's (who notice nothing when it comes to nails )
For an alternative nail shape example, painted my friends nails aswell :)
