Manicure Monday: 4th August 2014

Hi everyone!

Can you believe August is upon us already?! If you’re looking for some Summery inspiration for your nails then look no further! This week we’ve found some bright and beautiful designs for you including a lot of floral creations!

Demi from  www.Demisnails.com kicks off the floral patterns this week with her intricate blue design. Recreate it using Monogamous for a pale base and then use Cameo and Phallic for the flowers.

We HEART this next nail-art design which was created by Obstinateideas on Instagram. She used our Nail Varnish in Throb and you could recreate her design with Precision Inks in Abyss and Scribe. Be sure to seal it all with a Top Coat.

Another floral design now and this one comes from Madeleineandmacarons on Instagram. She used Nomad and Cameo as part of her tie-dye style base. You could use Optimist and Harem to complete the look. Precision Ink in Scribe sealed with a Top Coat would work perfectly for the white flowers.

Sinhazel on Instagram used Facet for this sparkly nail-art. On the feature nail, Scorn would work well topped with spots of Fusion and Fire Rose. We think this design is perfect for a night out partying!

This next creation is an interlocking dot pattern from nail_loopy. Noble was teamed with Jo’mina for this simple yet effective design. You could recreate with these colours or play around with other complimentary shades.


Our final nail design this week is this amazing creation by Mandy of www.ma-nails.co.uk. She used Boosh for the hanging baskets and Spartan for a touch of glitter. For the leaves Mandy used Omen and for the flowers she used Lament, Collide and Stance, dotting them with Radium.
