3D Nail Art

Super excited today! My friend bought me a whole bunch of FIMO Nail Art Canes. Can't wait to try them out! And make some 3D nail art :) I have a bunch of different ones than this picture. But they're super tiny so it's so hard to take a good picture >.<

Well, for those who love to do 3D acrlyics, below is a mini tutorial on how to make some super cute designs. I personally don't really use this because I can't stand the smell. But enjoy!

Nail Art Tutorials Found

Well, not only do I have a whole bunch of nail art pictures, I have also collected some nail art tutoirals overtime. The bad news is, they're not in English. The good news is, you don't need to know Japanese nor Chinese. A picture is better than a thousand words.

Here are a few to share:

Nail Art Inspiration

There are days when you just can quite get your head together to come up with a design. So I collected a bunch of pictures (and the collection still increasing) for some inspiration. I just wanted to share them to get our nail juice going.

The PrettyLook

The Glamorous Look
The Sweet Look

The Sassy Look

The In Your Face Look

Of course, depending on what I need to do or where I need to be, I use my inspirations accordingly and dress my hands appropriately.

Nail Art False Assumption

So I was browsing the net and I came across this little blurb:

Fingernails Faux Pas #2: Nail Art I sincerely hope no one orders a hit on me for saying this, but nail art is tacky. A painted flower on one big toe is cute because it's dainty and unexpected, but ten fingers decorated in swiggles, lightening bolts or glued-on cubic zirconias are wrong.

This isn't the first time I've heard someone say "nail art is tacky." Truth is, yeah, it can be! But it doesn't need to be. Just like a couch, a lamp, a purse, a shirt... they all have the potential of being called the t word. By picking the right colors and designs, then the "tackiness" can be avoided. You don't have to have a tacky flower on your big toe nor have a bunch of lightening bolts done like a 1st grader on your fingers. That's not nail art, that's nail disaster! When your swiggles are done right or when your glued-on cubic zirconias are used correctly, that becomes nail art.

Nail Disaster

Nail Art

I don't own any of these pictures. I just simply googled them for comparison. You see the difference?

Leopard French Nail

The finish product:

The Steps:

Note: Make sure your polish is completely dried along each step! Enjoy!
Tips: Your leopard print will come out better if your brown spots are randomly scattered and your black lines vary in thickness and are a bit more "messy."
I like sticking to the more ordinary colors, but feel free to go wild ^.^
