Plain Jane Nails

I wanted quite a plain, simple design after the holiday designs I did so I thought I’d use Models Own Nyla Nude for the base, paint some dots on using my Models Own Nail Pen and finish with a coat of Models Own 3-in-1 Base Coat, Top Coat and Gloss. 
I’m quite pleased with how these turned out and I had quite a few compliments about them.  Next time I do a design like this I’m going to paint the dots on in a consistent pattern instead of putting random dots on because I think they will look more professional.

Zebra Stripes for Billy

Here is the last design I did while in Zante for my friend Billy:
She wanted her nails done like the zebra stripes I did in my previous post ‘Doodles’ and we decided to do her nails pink to match the pink leopard print I had done on her toenails (unfortunately I didn’t take a photo of them).   To create these I used Models Own Hot Pink and Pastel Pink along with my Black Models Own Nail Pen.  I love this design but the blurry photos really don’t do them justice!


This design I did on my own nails while in Zante.  I didn’t know what to do on them but I fancied doodling and didn’t have a pen and paper so thought I’d use my nails and a nail pen!  So these are a little messy and by far not my favourite design but thought I’d share them anyway! 
For these I used CND Stickey Base Coat, Models Own: Pastel Pink, Jade Stone, Lemon Meringue, Feeling Blue, Fuzzy Peach and my black nail pen.  I finished with a topcoat but I still don’t know what I was called!

A fun design for Kirsty

So here is another design I did while in Zante, this time for my friend Kirsty (AKA K-Dawg).  She only wanted ‘K Dawg’ written on her one hand so I thought id do something quite simple but girly on her other hand:
For these I used Models Own Hot Pink, Feeling Blue, my Models Own White nail pen and I can’t remember the name of the topcoat I used as I had to borrow a friend’s because mine smashed all over our floor (oops).  This design was easy and only took about 20mins but she was fidgeting and smeared two of her nails before I managed to take the photos so they look a bit messy!

Leopard Print for Shelly

 Here is the design I did on my friend Shelly’s nails while we were in Zante:
 I couldn’t get a decent photo of her nails because the lighting was so bad in our room but I found this one amongst our holiday snaps! I did the same design on my nails yesterday to show you all:
I used Models Own: Jade Stone, Sophie’s Pink, black Nail Pen and 3-in-1 Base Coat, Top Coat and Gloss.  Jade Stone and Sophie’s Pink is my new favourite colour combination because it looks so fresh and I love how the colours bounce off each other.
