Manicure Monday: 28th April 2014

We have been amazed at the amount of nail creations shared with us on social media, and it has been very hard to pick a small amount to feature in today’s Manicure Monday. Be sure to check out some more amazing nail art, other than the ones featured in this post, which we shared on our Instagram page over the weekend.

The first look comes from Nicole (@youngwildandpolished on Instagram). Nicole created this fun butterfly design using Nail Varnish in Jo’Mina, Lament and Nomad. Creating an accent nail like Nicole did is the perfect way to add some nail art to your look when you’re in a rush and don’t have time to create a design on each nail.


Another look we loved was shared with us by Frances (@purplenailbox on Instagram) who created this amazing purple and blue themed design. Frances used Nail Varnish in Jo’Mina and Force to help her create this look. We love the colour combination of these nails and you could create the stripe design yourself using a fine nail art striping brush.


This next look blew us away! How amazingly detailed is this pop art look shared with us by the talented Jen (@jensnails on Instagram). Jen used Nail Varnish in Throb to create the red detailing in her nails. You could also use our Precision Ink in Scribe, which is perfect for creating fine white detailing on the nails, as well as the eyes!

We have also been loving this geometric design created by nail_loopy on Instagram. She used Nail Varnish in Jo’Mina and Nomad to create the purple and green detailing in her nails. You could create this look by painting the case of your nails in Monogamous and using Precision Ink in Abyss to create the black geometric lines!

Another amazing nail art design comes from Mandy who shared these with us on Twitter. Mandy used our Nail Varnish in Scorch and Boosh to create this black and white monochrome design. We love how Mandy created a slightly different design on her ring finger to create an accent nails.


Last but not least is this amazing leopard print look shared with us by Jennifer (@jenlojko on Instagram). Jennifer used our Nail Varnish in Purity to create the peach base on her nails. You could also use Nail Varnish in Boosh and Cameo to add the black and blue details to the nail. We love how the colours contrast in this look, helping to make it more striking!
