♥ NOTW – I got the Blues ♥


Hello my Beauties!

Today it’s going to be another “Nails of the week” post. I recently got a few special nail art brushes and couldn’t wait to try them in action.
It was definitely not the first time i was doing something more, than just to apply the simple color on my nails, but i have to admit, with a nail art brush things are going a lot smoother & easier.
I was even able to paint with my left hand, which is usually a big acrobatic act. (Do you feel same way?)

So this is what i call: I got the Blues! It was a tiny bit Burlington style inspired.
I didn’t go all the way with that style, since i wanted to have my own view on it.
Blue Burlington style nails designThe tools that have been used for this design are:

  1. Manhattan Crazy Colors in Nr. 5
  2. KRON 1959 Liliput Nagellack in “Nordpol”  (Northpol)
  3. Lumene Natural Code nail styler in Nr. 9 “Live it up”
  4. Tiny Acrylic Nail Art Brush

Manhattan Kron Lumene blue nail polishesAll the polishes are luckily fast drying ones, so i almost did not have to wait between applying the different coats & strips. 

This is how i’ve done it:
Blue Burlington style nail designI have to say, in real life all the colors set themself a little more apart, than it appears on the pictures, they seem to be more defined.
But i guess you get an idea of what i was trying to do.
Over all i was amazed how easy it is to actually paint your nails with a nail art brush. Why didn’t i try that before?!

Tell me about your favorite “blues” and share with me your link, so i can have a look & get inspired for the next time. 

Stay beautiful! 😉

  1. I’m wearing Breezi by Zoya today and I love it! Another favorite blue is “Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue” from OPI’s Germany collection. I have more than 15 blues, but these are my recent favorites. I’ll have to pull out my nail brushes and try some nail art. I love this post!

  2. You do a great job on your blogs!! Very detailed and you keep it interesting 🙂

  3. I like them a lot 🙂 you have lovely nails.

    • Very sweet of you to say. 🙂 I’m trying my best to take good care of them 🙂
      Have you done any fun nail designs laltely?

      • I would love nails like yours, sadly I have to use clear false nails to practice on as I chew and bite my nails! You give me inspiration though. Yeah, I did the ombre glitter ones and today I did some cookie monster ones which I made a post about, I thought they were really cute! x

      • Yes i’ve seen the cookie monster, so funny 😀
        Well, what about trying not to bite on your nails? 😛 Take is as your big 2013 resolution? or buy yourself some special horrible tasting polish for that matter and see what happens. 🙂
        Good luck!!
