I have to confess that lately I’ve had a hard time to come up with any new nail designs. The reason is probably that my two previous designs were in my opinion a little bit more creative and well-done than my other nails here, so I just couldn’t post any “just ok” nails. But now I’m luckily over that. The cure may have been my recent purchases consisting of nail polish and stamping plates. ^^’

Here is the result of buying the Sugar Bubbles plate 014. I couldn’t hold myself back when I saw the Starfleet logo from Star Trek on the plate. A must have pattern for me, because I’m a huge fan of the Star Trek universe. Also the whole plate is almost like made for my taste, can’t wait to try the other patterns on it. ^^ I’m so glad I found it!  So this is a appreciation design for all those amazing moments that I’ve spent with the fandom.

So first I chose 3 polishes to represent the shirts of the crew. The yellow and blue polishes were both Nails polishes from Seppälä and the red was Heart on Fire by Rimmel London. I painted the bottom of the nails with black, so they would look more like a shirt. Then I made stamper decals out of the Starfleet logo.

When I bought the blue and red polishes I also found a gorgeous glow in the dark nail polish with star and moon glitters from Seppälä. I thought it would fit perfectly in the space themed design. So, because it glowed in the dark, I got an idea to make also the logos a little bit more exiting – by applying glow in the dark top coat on them at the beginning of making the decals.

They turned out pretty well, the only downside being that the glow doesn’t look as good on the camera than it does IRL. I hope you like the design!

16. Sakura

Spring time is here ! 🙂 The Lakkaushaaste group had a challenge this week to make nails that resemble spring somehow. So, when my new Sugar Bubbles plates arrived in the mail, the Japanese styled plate gave me an idea to paint cherry blossoms (=Sakura) on my nails.

These really turned out well, and are probably my favorites from the nails I’ve made so far 🙂 First, I used white Matte nail polish from Seppälä and then painted it over with China Glazes Dandy lyin’ around. The reason why I did that, is because the China is a bit too transparent to be used by itself, so with a good strong white under it, it only needed 1 layer to look good.

Then I started making the stamper decals from the Sugar Bubbles plate – I wanted to give the flowers a bit color so I decided that just stamping wasn’t enough. I bought a rose-colored polish from Rimmel just for the occasion, because I really don’t own any light pink colors. Maybe when the summer nears, I’ll by some :3 And also, that the nails wouldn’t be boring, I made a different kind of decal to my ring finger nail. It is a really pretty picture of a geisha sitting by a river and reading a scroll. To color it, I used the same rose polish that I used for the blossoms, Gray Day from Models Own and Can’t Find My Czechbook from O.P.I.

I hope you like these as much as I do! ^^
