The Nail File: Nail Art Inspiration…

The Nail File

Aloha Chums!

Regardless of recent health drama’s, I’ve managed to relax a little by taking a few pics of some fun nail art I’ve been getting up to. With a ton of glitters and gorgeous gel polishes to play with here’s just a few of the designs that I’ve managed to capture this week…

Sea Shore Green

Mermaid Nail Art

Living a stones throw away from the sea it’s something I tend to draw inspiration from in all weathers as the landscape changes so drastically from day to day! I noticed it was a vibrant green colour one day last week, with the sun rays illuminating the colours as I watched sea green waves gently lap onto the shore… which gave me a notion to try out this design! Very beachy, don’t you think?!


Dusky Dew Drops

Chunky Glitter Nail Art

This was a really simple design incorporating a light marbled effect with gel polish and some gorgeous shiny blue chunky glitter encapsulated under the top gel coat. It was inspired by a recent summer rain shower where the water droplets were making some really playful light effects across our kitchen wall from the sunshine.


Disney Pattern

Disney Nail Art

I spotted this playful idea on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a go on a short accent nail. It’s super cute and reminds me of recently finding some piccies from a family holiday in Disneyland Paris when I was much younger!


Tribal Design

Tribal Nail Art

I love creating hand painted tribal patterns and thought I would give it a go on a matte gel nail. It reminds me of a cute Turkish vase I found in a charity shop recently that’s decorated in cute little dots of all different sizes!


Baby Boomer Glitter Gradiant

Baby Boomer Glitter Nail

I adore classic pink and white nails, but this has got to be one of my favourites. It’s a gorgeous french pink & white acrylic gradient with a teeny layer of micro sparkle to give it a beautiful iridescent sheen. What a gorgeous combo for a bridal set don’t you think?

pink heart

What one’s your favourite design? Do you have any fun suggestions for me to try out next? Whatever your thought’s I’d love to read them in the comments below so do stop by to say a quick howdy lovelies:)
