New Nail Art~!

Hi everyone! Remember in my April 2011 Nails Post how I said I messed up that nail design pretty bad and pretty quickly? xD? Well, I got around to painting my nails again shortly after ;v;.

I tried to do pastel gradients along the tips of my nails and add a lot of sparkle, but the gradients didn't turn out perfectly xD. I find that nail enamel doesn't gradient as well as nail lacquer, probably because of the thickness and opacity. The blue color is a new polish, so this was kind of it's test run ;u;. I think next time I use it, I'll mix it with a little white to make the color a bit more pastel~. The lavender (Nice is Nice by Essie. Definitely one of my favorites *u*) Has the best gradient effect. I really like how the pink (Petites Soda Fountain) looks as well,. The yellow ( Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Lightning) doesn't gradient very well at all ;~;. I like the way the mint (Revlon Minted) gradients, I wish I wasn't so messy with it xD. Anyways, I hope you like this simple design ;u;

Thanks for looking!


  1. Cuuuute~! The yellow is a little dark, but it still suits well. (:

  2. Thank you! Yeah, I was planning on mixing that one with a bit of white too, to make it a bit less intense ;u;. but I'm too lazy;;;

  3. Ooo so pastel-ey! I like the thumb color the best ;)

  4. Thank you! It's one of my favorite colors tha I own ;v;!
