Nails: Mint Nail Art

This week on my nails I thought I’d try out a little bit of nail art, I’ve been browsing Pinterest a lot lately and I always admire everyone’s skills with the nail polish. For a beginner I don’t feel like I’ve done too badly, although I didn’t try anything too extravagant. The base I used was OPI Mermaid’s Tears from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection a couple of years ago, it’s my favourite mint green polish as it is quite muted and more green than blue. The white stripes and spots were applied with the Barry M Nail Art Pen which I’m loving at the moment. The teal details are also Barry M but the Gelly Hi-Shine in Watermelon, which I bought ages ago and haven’t used much. The glitter polish I used is the amazing Nail Junkie by Sinful Colours which I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. The little hearts are actually nail tattoos by Skin Art and I received them in a goody bag last year, haven’t really experimented with them before but they were super easy to use.

  1. I've only ever tried spotty nails before (using a kirby grip!) but I really want to try out more stuff so need to get myself a nail art pen. These look great! xx


    1. I used a kirby grip for some spots on my other hand too! The pen is great for stripes! xx

  2. I love this, I wish I had more chance to even paint my nails, let alone nail art! x

    1. Aw! I won't have time when I'm back at work so I'm embracing it! xx

  3. Ohh these are so lovely! The colour choice is fab, I adore that glitter! I fail at nail art - think I'll leave it to you! Xo
