Weekly Nail Art Project #1 - Tapestry Nails

Nail art is not my strong point, so I don't really know what possessed me to sign up to Danni's weekly nail art project, but I suppose it's always good to branch out and practice new things!

The idea behind it is that a bunch of us (check Danni's post for the list of participants!) will doodle on our nails to a weekly theme provided by our lovely organiser. The theme for the first week was 'an item of clothing' and I bravely/foolishly didn't pick up any of plain garments in my wardrobe and instead headed towards this much more elaborately designed dress...


Not one of my brightest moments! But it did mean I got to pull out lots of colours! This is what I managed:

flowes on black nails

Not perfect, not by a long shot, but I was quite pleased with the turn out! I haven't done anything akin to a tutorial, because that would imply there was method to my madness and I didn't just paint them black and dab at them with a bunch of other colours!

How do you think I got on? Be easy on me, I'm a beginner!

  4. I think your attempts are pretty good, especially for such a complex design! I really struggle as I don't have one of those 'dabber' thinks and tend to make do with cocktail sticks haha keep at it! xx

  6. Brilliant!

    a) how amazing is your dress Kel? I love it!!
    b) first timer nail artist = a win for you. You're obviously really talented at it! Keep it up!

    I'm quite jealous as I have trouble even just painting my nails sometimes.
