Even though I'm not a huge fan of pink, I love nude pinks as they always look professional and neat. I decided to stamp this pretty floral design to give it that extra elegance.

The finished look with top coat.
Two even coats of BeautyUk - Hope, stamped with Cheeky Vibrant plate 03 and Rimmel Pro - Black Pearl.

Happy polishing until next time..

Hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday weekend! Here's an exotic, tropical inspired vertical gradient. I've used a turquoise blue and purple to create this look, stamped with a zebra print.

The finished look (no top coat). I used LA Colors - Black Velvet and Cheeky plate 03 to stamp with.

Finished with a top coat.

I haven't done a dark shade of polish ever since spring has sprung so I really wanted to do a black manicure this time. A gradient stamp of blue and pink together is what I imagined but things didn't quite go to plan as the colours weren't bright enough to show up on black. However I chose to still use the colours and individually stamp each one instead to create this subtle print.

The finished look with top coat.
Two even coats of LA Colors - Black Velvet.
Stamped using Jumbo Plate B, Barry M Gelly - Guava and Butter London - Be My Dahling.
The design reminds me of a woodgrain effect. Even though the pink appears as a brown shade on top of the black, I thought it added to the woody look, (taken in indoor lighting).

Hello again everyone! Sorry it's been a while since my last post, life kind of took over and then I was away on holiday for a few days in Prague (had an amazing time!)

So it seems the new nail art craze right now is the 'Negative Space' trend. The term actually originates from a technique used in art, where the blank part of an artwork piece contributes to the overall composition and makes it more compelling. 
The looks were first created on models during the Fashion Week this year and has been evolving into a growing trend ever since.

Here's my attempt at it, (inspired by Nailstorming) and it's definitely something different to the nail art I've done before.

Two coats of Beauty Uk - Love and Butter London - Be My Dahling.
Using a dotting tool and nail art brush I created a flower design around my accent nail.
Finished off with top coat.
