26 GNAI - Red & Pink

Thursday, 19 January 2017

PR Sample
I'm back today with a new 26 Great Nail Art Ideas prompt - Red & Pink.


I'm actually experiencing a little nail art slump at the minute, none of my mani's are turning out how I would expect and inspiration is completely lacking. I'm getting more than a little fed up of it. 

However after trying and failing to create a red and pink mani 3 times (yes, third time wasn't a charm for me), I opened some mini eggs, made a cuppa, dabbed away my tears of frustration (joke) and hoped try 4 would turn out 'presentable'.

I used 4 different polishes, some water decals and a few rhinestones - I literally chucked everything at this design in the vain hope it would work out and luckily for me something worked out.
From L-R on my hand, the polishes I used are Barry M Pomegranate & Sparkling Ruby and Kure Bazaar Melrose & Lipstick.





This is actually the first valentines mani I've created in 2017 and if things don't start improving, it could well be my last. Send me positive vibes, my mojo is around here somewhere.

Let me know what you think of this design and share any hints and tips you have for getting over a string of nail art failures.

  1. I'm actually amazed that you had the patience to re-do a mani 4 times! Usually if I don't like how a mani turned out, I shrug my shoulders, wear it anyway for a day, and redo my nails the next night, ha ha! I really love how your rhinestone design turned out! It is super pretty and it really ties the whole design together.

  4. This really is such a pretty mani, I love the colours together! When I'm lacking inspiration (which is often these days:/) I actually go shopping. Not necessarily to buy stuff (although...:D) but I have a look around and find myself thinking, this pattern would look cool on my nails! It always seems to help :) xx

  5. I'm obsessed with this mani!!! I would have never know that you were in a nail slump. You can't tell at all. Hopefully it bases for you soon. I had the same issue over Christmas last year. Strangely it was only when I was doing Christmas manis lol
