For day 11 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I made a holly garland french manicure. I made these last year too, and they are originally inspired by Nails by Cambria.

Today is day five of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator and for today I’ve made some simple and elegant half moon snowflake nails.

The base for this mani is the beautiful blue scattered holo Freya’s cats from piCture pOlish. I used it together with bright white (also from pp) and Jolly snowflake stencils from What’s up nails.

December 4 | Stars

For the forth day of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I’ve made stars using polishes from Depend’s new holiday collection Season Sparkle. There are so many pretty polishes in that collection and I’m sure I’ll use them for more holiday nail art.

The black polish is called Bedtime stories and the silver is called Holiday spirit. The stars are made with Stars stencils from What’s up nails.

November favorites

I can’t believe that it’s already December. It’s the last month of the year and how crazy is that!? This year has gone by so fast! Anyway, here are my favorite manis from November. Can you tell that I’m exited about making winter nail art?

My absolute favorite of these is the last one with the frosty snowflakes.

Movember nails

Let’s not forget that November means movember! I had planned to make more than one mani for this cause, but somehow it’s the last day of November and I have one made one…

For this movember look I used Breakfast at Tiffany’s as the base together with Black dress not optional, both from OPI’s new Holiday collection called Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The details are created using Movember stickers & stencils from Whats up nails.

Birthday nails

I don’t know about you but I’m feeling 22… or more like 27. Today is my birthday and of course I’ve made some birthday nails. I didn’t want to make a typical birthday mani, so I went for a more subtle design and ended up with negative space, dots and a bow. I think they turned out pretty cute and the bow reminds me of a gift.

Nail art | Geometric accent nail

Today I have a step by step tutorial for you, showing how to make a fun geometric accent nail.

For this mani I’m using Polovetsian Dances from A-England, Space Race from H&M and Right Angle Nail Stencils from Snail Vinyls.

img_1025

Start by painting two coats of Space Race on the nails of your little finger and ring finger. Paint the rest of your nails with one coat (ocw!!) of Polovetsian Dances. Add a quick drying top coat to all nails, I used Gel Setter from Essie.

Wait approximately 20 minutes for the top coat to be completely dry. Add nail vinyls on the ring finger to create a geometric pattern. I used the insides from the Right Angle Nail Stencils, I love that this way you can use up the whole vinyl sheet.

Paint one coat of Polovetsian Dances over the vinyls…

Remove the vinyls immediately, before the polish starts to dry. If you wait too long before removing the vinyls the lines won’t be as clean and the base color might come up with them.

Allow the polish to try for a few minutes then add a glossy top coat.

The finished result!
