Golden Sandy Beach- Tropical Nail Design

Hello everyone! Happy Fourth of July to all that celebrate! Today we will not be creating a Fourth of July design, but a tropical design, which I love to do in the summer time. I love tropical anything in the summer time, really anytime. 

Tropical Nail Design

 Here are the polishes and nail art tools used to create this sandy beach design:


Base and top coat- CND Stickey Base Coat and CND Super Shiney Top Coat.

Polishes- Finger paints- Tiffany Imposter, Holo Taco- Hydropower- Electric Holo Collection, and Holo Taco- Gold Flakie- Anniversary.

Acrylic paint- Blue, white, yellow, green, and peach.

Nail art brushes- Thin stripper brush, flat brush, and fan brush.

Other- Water to clean off nail art brushes.

Tropical Nail Design

Apply a base coat.

Let that dry.

Polishes-

Thumb and pinky- aqua color holographic polish (Holo Taco- Hydropower)

Index, middle, and ring- a light blue cream polish (Finger paints- Tiffany Imposter), this is your base color for the nail art. You need a base color of nail polish if you are going to use acrylic paint for your nail art that way it has something to stick to, other wise it might not last as long.

Let that dry.

Tropical Nail Design

For the nail art we will be creating it on the index, middle and ring finger nails. 

Ocean water:

First we will start off with the water, you will need a dark blue, light blue and white for the water. If you don't have a light blue like me, take your dark blue and add white to make the light blue that you want. 

Starting near the cuticle, with you flat brush paint dark blue, light blue, and white. Then take your fan brush and swipe the three colors to blend them together.You will need to go over this a few times to be opaque, I did this three times.

To start your sand just paint a peach colored paint  on the tip of the nails.

 Palm leaves- 

On the side of the index and ring finger we will make palm leaves.

First you will need a dark green and light green. If you don't have a light green mix yellow and green to make the light green that you want.

Starting off with the light green, take your stripper brush and make 4 curved lines from the side of the nail and then 1 small straight line at the top of the nail. 

For the palm leaves on each curved lines make very small close together lines. 

Once you have the light green lines done, for more detail take the dark green and make a few lines in over the light green lines. I did take a little bit of yellow as well but really that did not do much, so you can do that or not it is up to you. 

For the final touch take a gold glitter polish (Holo Taco- Gold Flakie) on a makeup sponge and dab that on the tip of the nails over the peach paint. You may need to do this a few times depending on the glitter you used.

Once you have your golden sandy beach design the way like, apply a top coat to seal in your design and help it to last during your topical vacation or if you are just dreaming of a tropical vacation like me. 

Hope all of you enjoyed this tropical golden sand nail design and hope everyone is having a good summer.

See you next time for more nail fun!

First we will just make the pineapple shapes for all of the nails. For this design it is all similar just different sizes and amount of pineapples. 

Starting with the middle finger nail we will make two half ovals, one near the cuticle and the other near the tip of the nail, with yellow paint that I added a little white to make a little more opaque. 

On the ring finger nail we will make a small oval in the center, and then three half ovals around the nails.

Lastly on the thumb nail we will make one large oval with a flat bottom, that will cover most of the nail. 

For all of your pineapples you will need to go over then a few time to be opaque.

Next on to the detail of the pineapple, on all of the pineapple make a criss cross pattern with brown paint and then make small dots in each square, except for them small pineapples on the ring finger nail. 

Lastly we will make leaves on top of the pineapples, with green paint on top of your pineapple start off by make two curved lines right next to each other, repeat one or two more times depending on the size of your pineapple, then lastly make a straight line from the top of your leaves.

Easy Gradient- blue and green gradient

Hello everyone! Happy long Memorial Day weekend! Today on the blog we will be creating a very easy gradient nail design, this is ocean like and great for Spring and Summer time. For  this simple nail design, all you will need is nail polish and the brush that comes in the polish, no make up sponges. We are using two light colored polishes from Glam Polish; the child a light green polish and sandy toes anything goes a light blue polish. 

Gradient Nail Design

All you need is two nail polishes, no tools:

Glam Polish- Sandy Toes Anything GoesGlam Polish- The Child
 
Glam Polish- Sandy Toes anything goes and The Child. 

Gradient Nail Design

Apply a top coat. 

Let that dry.

Then on to the gradient.

Gradient Nail Design

When I polish my nails I always start with the pinky nail, then end with the thumb nail. If you do the same then starting with the pinky nail or whatever finger nail you start off with when you polish. 

First open both of your polishes, take the light green polish (The Child) and polish one side and then take your light blue polish (Sandy Toes Anything Goes) polish the other side by overlapping the green polish. 

Just make sure to over lap the two polishes when you are polishing the nails to blend the polishes together. 

Repeat this step on all of the nails, for this light colored gradient I did have to apply three coats, each time making sure to overlap the colors so they can blend together, even if you have to slightly go over the polishes again just to bend them.

More of a look a the blue side, Glam Polish Sandy Toes Anything Goes.

Once you have your gradient nail design just right apply a top coat top seal in your design and to help it to last. 

That is all that is to this easy nail design. For this gradient I did try it with the make up sponge but I could not get it to work, so I found this way to work best with the two light colored polishes. I am not sure how well this will work with darker colored polishes, it works great with light colored polishes. I actually learned this method from Simply Nailogical Cristine, she did a gradient with her recent Holo Taco collection this way, she just called it a lazy gradient. 

If you have trouble with gradients maybe this might be an easier method on creating a gradient.

Hope all of you enjoyed this easy spring/ summer gradient!

See you next time for more nail fun!

You Glow- Multichrome Flower Nail Design

Hello everyone! Today on the blog we will be creating flowers on our nails that looks like they are glowing from the multi-chrome polish we will be using, we are not using glow in the dark polish, we are just using multi-chrome that shifts in color and just looks like it is glowing because of the ark colored background. This design is great for spring and summer, even though I picked a dark blue and an ocean blue. 

Multichrome Flower Nail Design

Here are the polish and nail art tools used to create this glowing flower nail design. 


Base and top coat- CND Stickey Base Coat and CND Super Shiney Top Coat.

Polish- Zoya- Twinkling- Jen, OPI Fiji- Do you Sea what I Sea, Holo Taco-Wireless Mode- Lite Mode Collection, Holo Taco- Flash Drive- Lite Mode Collection, Holo Taco- Scattered, and Holo Taco- Flakie.

This design is very simple, on three nails the thumb, index, and ring finger nail we will be making a flower, that is off to the side of the nail. 

Multichrome Flower Nail Design

On the thumb and ring finger nails we will be using Holo Taco- Wireless Mode for the flower. 

On the index nail we will be using Holo Taco- Flash Drive for the flower.

Starting with the index nail and using Holo Taco- Flash Drive for or flower. Take that polish on a thin striper brush, on the right hand corner, staring in the middle make a line, then one above that, and another line next to that, then two more lines under the middle line. Basically we will be making a star shape, five line for each petal. 

Once you have your five lines, take that same brush with the Holo Taco Flash Drive polish on it and make petal shapes using the lines as a guide.

Once again repeat the same step on the thumb with Holo Taco Wireless Mode polish. 

For a last step of the flowers we will add the center part of the flower. Take a small detail brush with some Holo Taco Flakie on it and on all the nails that you made a flower put a dot of that polish in the middle of the flower.

For a final touch add a shattered holo polish on all of the nails. I did not apply the holo on over the flowers, just on the background.

Once you have finished your flowers apply a top coat to seal in your design and to help it to last. For this design I did only do the flowers on three fingers, if I would have gone back I would have done the flowers on all of the nails.

Hope all of you enjoyed this flower nail design.

See you next time for more nail fun!
