Aztec Orange

All of this sunshine is definitely making me bring out my most vibrant coloured nail polish!

This design I found on Pinterest and thought I would give it a go.

The main colours I have used for this one are Barry M high shine gelly paint in Orange, a basic white and a black nail art pen.

I would suggest doing two coats of the base colours, white and orange, to ensure that they are nice and bold on your nails.

The aztec pattern I created is fairly random and I’d suggest just doing what ever you find easiest as it can get quite tricky when it comes to really detailed design.

Also, if you don’t have a nail art pen you could always used a cocktail stick and dip it in a black nail paint. However, this might be harder to manage the detailed parts.


Peachy Flowers

The sun has finally made an appearance (Yippeeeee!) so it felt necessary to add a bit of summery shine to my nails.

The main colours used for this design are Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Papaya, Topshop Bee’s Knees (pastel yellow), a basic white nail paint and a nail art pen in White.

Normally I would have used nail art pens to create the flowers as it can be tricky to use a normal nail paint brush as you could create a big blob instead of a little one. However, somehow using the brush worked for me this time! Just make sure your brush isn’t loaded up too much.
