Frilly Freehand Filigree Nail Art

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Today's post can be for the holidays - or any time. Who doesn't love gold over a deep red shimmery polish?

Like most of my random free hand nail designs, I didn't really have a design in mind when I started. I just let the brush run rampant. 

I used Dance Legend Red Show #06 for the base color. This deep red is vampy and has tons of "lit from within" shimmer. The design was completed using Elevation Polish Tre Cime di Lavaredo, which is a gorgeous gold holographic polish. I topped it off with a coat of HK Girl.

I like how this design turned out. It's definitely random and frilly.

Ho Ho Ho - Santa nail art

Today's post features some fun festive nail art. Santa's red suit provides some wonderful inspiration for manicures.

This nail art was easy to create. I started off with a coat of Zoya Elisa. This perfect shimmery red is perfect for the base color. Then on my ring finger I used Zoya Purity for the white fur, Zoya Willa for the black belt and Zoya Ziv for the gold belt buckle.

Then using craft punches (I found the set on a local garage sale website) I created the Hs and Os for the Ho Ho Ho. I used Zoya Trixie for this. It is easy to use punches for DIY decals. I applied a thin coat of clear coat to a plastic lid and waited for it to dry. Then I applied a thin coat of Trixie. Once it was completely dry, I peeled it off and punched out the letters. The letters are applied to the nail over a still wet clear coat and then pressed down. I used two coats of HK Girl to protect the design and smooth out the decals.
