I did these nail designs AGES ago when I went babysitting for a gaggle of girls. I think it was during a school holiday which only means one thing, time to paint funky nail designs! Having rattled off a list of my talents and nail techniques each girlie requested their own design, chose the colours and away we were!
First, I painted Lottie’s Nails:
Millie wanted little hearts on all of her nails. I tried with sellotape, cutting out the heart shape. But it peels off some nail varnishes- and it peeled what I had used on Milly’s nails. #disaster! Instead I used another cocktail stick and picked up nail polish from the brush and carefully drew little hearts. Clever hey? I also marbled her thumbs, just to mix things up. I used pink and purple as they always go together well. And added a slightly minty green as an accent colour.
Finally I used my creative skills on Hannah finger tips:
Hannah wanted to keep it classic with a beautiful French manicure. I’m going to blow my own trumpet here, I am a mighty fine French tip painter. So smooth and wonderfully even! I love how clean, soft and feminine it can make your hands look. But to give the nails a modern twist we added silver and blue glitters over the white tips. Snazzy!
