Practice makes perfect...right?!

nimbus studded bright mermaid nail art

I was looking through my designs the other day and I thought, I really need to try something new! I came across the Nimbus design by The Nailasaurus and just had to try it myself. I have to say it's harder than it looks! After a few ARRRGG's and UGGGHH's I decided that an accent nail would do for now...mainly because it was the only one that looked anything like the original! In the end though I covered it with a stamp because I think it needs more practicing before I show it to the world properly!

I paired it with black, bright peach and gold studs and as a whole I love this look! I'll definately try this technique again because I think the nail art it can produce it just stunning. Mine may need a bit of practice but hopefully I'll get there eventually! The stamp I used is from MoYou London Sailor 07 plate. The studs come from a wheel I got from amazon.co.uk. 

Thanks for reading! x

  1. These are stunning! How did you get the multi coloured effect under the pattern?

    1. Awh thanks! I used the nimbus technique where you basically water down your polish with acetone and apply it with a cotton bud. It creates this sort of blurred marble effect :)
