HEY UH...I GOTTA HAVE THIS AT SOME POINT. Maybe slightly different designs but like. :o
oh fuc now I wanna do that.
HI NAILPOLISH THREAD <3 Today I have glittery solstice Carrie Fisher nails (also I apologize for the awful cuticles BLEGH)
winter holiday nails!!
I know theyre just kiss press ons, but hnnnn sparkly
Opi’s new spring colors are fantastic. This is Arigato from Tokyo with black cherry blossoms stamped over it.
I learned recently that rose gold Works for me.
i needed to share this link full of pretty pretty nail art because
holy fucking shit, guys.
Those are almost certainly nail decals but I want them.
test run on a manicure i'm wearing to a wedding! i finally picked up some proper stamping polish and it really makes a difference with the nail stamps. Revlon's All Fired Up and OPI's Be There In A Prosecco with Nicole Diary stamping polish.
Oh wow, that turned out really well! Are you thinking about growing your nails out for the wedding or leaving them a little shorter to cut down on chipping and cracking?
i cannot exist with my nails longer than my fingertips. it drives me absolutely bonkers. so no, not growing them out. :P (i'm lucky in that i have fairly deep nail beds, so i have a lot of real estate to paint them even keeping them short!)
more fun with nail stamps (and sponge gradients, because i'm a sucker for sponge gradients)-- mermaid nails edition!
i think these are some of the better mermaid nails i've done tbh. gotta remember this combo! although i'm getting sadly low on that aqua blue.
That's a great colour combo
happy 420 y'all
Spoiler: plausible deniability weedster nails bc I have work tomorrow
Pride Is Coming, Be Extra
(pre-cleanup messy bc I was waiting for them to dry when I took that)
Question, does anyone have recs one way or the other regarding nail art stamping plates? I find nail art way more interesting than plain nail varnish and I might bother actually doing my nails if I could do nail art quickly, but I'd like to know if it's worth investing in them.
If you want "quick," stamping might not be the way to go-- cleanup takes forever ime. The actual designs go on faster than painting them by hand, but...
Stamping is the quickest way to get detailed, consistent patterns on your nails. Loq is right, it does take a while, but compared to the amount of time it takes to freehand those kinds of patterns it's a breeze. I get my stamping stuff from Wish, mostly. Delivery is slow and quality is sometimes questionable, but I've gotten some really good stuff from them for pretty cheap. Word of warning, it takes some practice, and your first few tries are probably going to turn out wobbly, crooked, or not show up at all.
