Hi all! If you read my previous post, you’ll know I’m currently trying to heal and grow my natural nails. So I’ll be showing off lots of press-ons for the next few weeks while my poor fingers recover from years of abuse, haha~
Anyway, today I was doing some spring cleaning this weekend, and I found loads of old 80s/90s clothes that I haven’t seen in ages! Lots of bright prints, neons, pastels, and bold lines (and horrifying denim pantsuits, but I won’t get into that). So I decided to make some cute colourful nails inspired by that era, with a bit of a modern edge.
Nail Polishes and Materials Used:
- Pink – OPI Pinking of You
- Blue – Etude House #CBL601
- Pastel Yellow – Etude House #CBE101
- Purple – China Glaze Sweet Hook
- Turquoise – China Glaze For Audrey
- Bright Yellow – Essence Mellow Yellow
- White – Sally Hansen White On
I used a fine paintbrush to draw the prints, and outlined them using a calligraphy pen and black India ink. Of course I managed to spill the ink all over the table and it got underneath my fingernails. Now I look like a coal miner, hurray…
This set will be available on my etsy store shortly! And as always, thank you for reading!
