Nail Art Of The Month | Crystal Nails, Big Bows And A LOT Of Glitter!

Ok so maybe this isn’t nail art from just the past month. Maybe, just maybe I have been a terrible blogger and haven’t posted my nail art in a while. oops.

Lately, I have been all about the crystal nails look, ever since I saw it onΒ tres_sheΒ on Instagram. I fell in love right away and knew I had to try it. So I jumped online and purchased myself some shiny things and have been having a ball with it since.

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So Kawai | Pink + Purple Crystal Nails with bows and heart diamonties

I think these are my favourite version of this so far. I love the shades of pink and purple and the little heart rhinestones are just too cute. One thing I have been meaning to retry this with is doing my own bows. I like the effect the bows add to the nails, but using pre made ones are a little annoying as they stick out and I am forever getting them stuck in my hair.

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So kawaii | New 2 tones bows and flower petals

I have been so into trying out new things lately. I watched a tutorial online for a different type of bow to what I usually do and wanted to give it a go. I have never tried two tone acrylic sculpting before, but I think it came out ok. I tried a new way of doing it this time, so rather than sculpting the bows and flower petals right onto my nail, I used a rounded surface that i could move about to make them and then stuck them onto the nails. i think I will definitely have to give that one another go, because it made life so much easier being able to move the surface about in more directions than my hand can bend πŸ˜›

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So Kawaii | Purple glitter nails with hear crystals and pink diamonties

…aaannnddd enter the glitter. When I ordered all of the crystal foils, I also bought a bunch of super cute glitters as well! This purple was just too gorgeous to not cover everything in, so… well, I covered everything in it lol.

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So Kawaii | Pretty blue glitter nails with pink foils and big 3d bows

This is the second glitter that I ordered, but I tried to not go too over board with it on this set. I wanted to have two different colours and to use a bunch of different coloured diamonties to my usual pink/clear combination. I hadn’t done proper bows on my nails in quite a while, so I thought I would throw a few in there for good measure πŸ™‚

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So Kawaii | Matte pink nails with pink glitter and 3d nail art bows and heart rhinestones

Last but not least, we have this super adorable set that I did on my sister-in-law when she came over from Melbourne to visit us for the weekend. She wanted something cute and matte with bows and diamonties. She love pink about as much as I do, so we went for this gorgeous shade with a bit of glitter thrown in. I am super pleased with how these turned out, I might have to do a set on myself! πŸ˜›

Just a quick one today πŸ™‚ I have been so busy with TAFE lately that I haven’t had time to do my nails all that often as I would have liked, but I have a few new designs to share with you. Hope you like them!

black and pink lace nails

This design I came up with because I wanted something a little more basic and not as 3D as I usually do my nails. I really liked these, and I think I might do them again, most because I didn’t keep them this way for very long.

Chess Chocolate Nails

I did this set not long after the first design. I did these to match my Chess Chocolate dress, which i wore to our Lovely Pairs Lolita Valentines Day Meet.

Bling Nails

Since I managed to trash my chess chocolate nails pretty quickly (the gold hearts were just cut outs from gold paper and died pretty quick unfortunately), these babies were next. After out Valentines day meet, we all went for a wander around the shops, and I found packets of these bad boys for super cheap. So i bought a whole heap of them and of course had to try them right away. For something so chunky, they stayed on really well. That is until they started to drive me crazy and I pulled them all off. Now I have no fake nails on at all.

Completely forgetting the promise I made in my half-assed new years resolutions, I have been super slack on the whole nail art front. I do have a few cute things that I have done recently thought that i thought I would share with you πŸ™‚ I hope you like them!

New Nail Art

Not particularly fancy or nail arty, but I have been seriously loving this pastel gel colour I got not long ago. Put some glitter over the top and its pretty darn cute if you ask me πŸ˜›

New Nail Art

This one was inspired by some new tights that I purchased not long ago. They are white with coloured diamonties all over the knee’s, and they are just the cutest things ever. I was feeling inspired and wanted more shiny so I thought I would do the same to my nails.

New Nail Art

These were inspired by a little competition event that the Australian Lolita community had a little while ago. I discovered it too late to enter, but thought I would so it anyway. The idea was to do a set of nai;s inspired by a favourite dress you own. Since I am still crushing hard on my Strawberries and ribbons Angelic Pretty dress I bought at AVcon, I thought i would try my hand at doing some nails to match!
