Nail Art: Fireworks

Let us start the year with a BANG! Fireworks filled the sky on New Year and I wanted them to fill-up my nails too. Yep! I wanted fireworks on my nails sobadly, but I do not know how to start, how my strokes should be. Thanks to the tutorial of Simply Rins  I was able to do it.

Here's my version. I do not know if was able give justice to it. But in some points it does looks like fireworks. hehehe


For the base polish, I used two thick coats of Chic by Revlon Nail Enamels. I bought this last month at Robinson's it was on sale. A teal blue creme polish that is so unique. :)


For the design, I used Yellow Ochre Acrylic Paint. I guessed the color blend well with the base polish.

 Using my trimmed detailing nail art brush I drew the fireworks bursts one by one with inward stroke.
 
 
I managed to neatly draw the design on my right fingernails using my non dominant hand (left). weeh! cool!

 I made this nail art a while ago while little boy is sleeping.


Thank goodness my son's yaya already know how to use the camera, and she took these photos (showing both my hands). Hubby is not around he's at the hospital right now with his father.


Compared to the lighter background, the design had stood out with the red background (our Christmas throw pillow), and my hands look fairer too lol..


Looking thoroughly at the pictures, I really was able to give justice to this nail art. It looks so great on my nails hehehe.. :) Do you agree?


You can do the same by simply following the tutorial of Ms Rina Alcantara.

Happy New Year!

  19. How do you keep your nails strong? I failed to make my nails long. I was planning to do a french tip, but when the time comes that it allows me to put nail polish eh one of my nails cut. Ugh!

    1. I think base coat with hardener did help may nails to stay strong. But there are time, nasisira din sya, napuputol. Pag nagkaganun, pahinga muna from nail polish.

  20. So you used acrylic paint talaga? Is it okay na patungan ng top coat?

    1. yes. ok lang naman just wait for the paint to dry before applying your favorite top coat.
