Instagram Fun Twin Nails no2

Continuing with my recent Twin and Mani Swap series …
Today I have another #bestietwinnails post for you that I did with the lovely Kim ig @kimmarieex.
We chose a more simple, elegant design and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Our inspiration came from a design by ig @newlypolished that Kim liked. 
Here is the original design that we based our nails on.

image

Here is my recreation. I had some trouble getting the design as I wanted with the stripping tape as my nails are a different shape.

image

Here is Kim’s recreation. I think she has done an amazing mani and got the pattern perfectly.

image

Here are both pictures together

image

I would like to thank Kim for joining me with this I had so much fun and love our chats over on Kik…….

Instagram Mani Swap Fun no2

If you read my last post you will know i am doing some mani swaps and twin nails.
Today’s post is my #maniswap with ig @emmaelizabethxxx
Emma chose to recreate my peach and purple roses.
Below is my original mani.

I think she has done a brilliant job. The colours and detail are so accurate. She changed the placement slightly to fit better with her nail shape and i love it.

I chose to do Emmas rose mani and below is her original.

And here is my recreation of her mani

Here below are all 4 pictures together. On the left are the originals and on the right are the re reactions

Instagram Fun with Mani Swaps

I recently put a post on instagram asking for anyone who wanted to do mani swaps or twin nails with me. I was overwhelmed with the response.
So i will be doing some regular posts on how these turned out.
First is my #maniswap with ig @brendas_nail_art_adventures
Brenda decided to recreate a recent mani I had done of dream catchers and feathers. Below is my original.

image

Below is Brendas recreation.

image

She has done such an amazing job recreating my mani, even down to the colours.
I chose to recreate her tropical sunset and palm trees mani and below is her original

image

Here below is my recreation. I loved doing this as my two fav types of nail art are gradients with black acrylic detailing

image

Here are all 4 pics together. The originals on the left and recreations on the right.

image

This was my first time doing a mani swap and it was great fun and I thank Brenda for joining me with this and doing such a wonderful mani xx

Completed the Nail Art Challenge April on Instagram

Hi everyone.
Sorry I haven’t posted for a while but things have been abit hectic, but I am glad to say it’s all settled down.
Today I have all the nail art i have done for the April challenge on Instagram. I completed every challenge except 2 of them but in my defence I was also doing an Autism Awareness Challenge aswell.
Here is the challenge list.

image

So first was Blue Puzzle (for autism)

image

I enjoyed this one and was all done in nail polish instead of acrylic paint.

Next was Eggs.

image

Kept with pastel colours with a custom indie holo base colour.

The next 2 challenges I combined into 1 Baby Chicken and Bunny.

image

Not completely happy with these as I think the chicks and bunny’s look abit mad lol but I can only get better. Another one for the “I must practise more” list.

The next one was Easter.

image

This one had me abit lost for ideas to start with as a lot of the challenges covered things to do with easter but once I thought of this it went really well.

Earth Day was one of the challenges I couldn’t find time to do.

Next one was Flowers.

image

I really enjoyed this one as I love doing the more detailed art with acrylic paint.

Lastly was Moon and this was the other challenge I could not get around to doing

Here they all are …….

image

Hope you enjoyed this and I will be back soon with some more varied nail art as I am not taking part in a May challenge.
See you soon
