Nail Art: Silver Tips.






Recently, I've been experimenting with nail art. I'm really impatient and I hate painting my nails as it is, but blogs are inspiring and I can't help but join in with the nail obsession!

I painted my nails with Models Own Blooboo (I used three coats to get it just right) and then used Nailene Perfect Tips to do the tips silver. I think it turned out really well, so I shall be experimenting a bit more with coloured tips and maybe even some half-moons!

Any other nail art ideas I should try? I really want to try Aztek nails but I think this is beyond me!

  3. Oh, I've just done silver tips on mine, too, but I have to say, I'm liking your colour combination much more!
    I'm really wanting to try Aztec nails, too, but I have such an unsteady hand - have you tried any tape manicures? They're quite easy but always look great! xx

  4. They are gorgeous, fab combination, every time I try though, I always pull of the polish underneath :( I dont know what I'm doing wrong.

  18. Ohh these look so effective! I really want to try aztec nails too, but the design looks so intricate I know I'll mess it up. It may be time to treat myself to a WAH! manicure.
