Black french tip with flower and studs

Hi there!

I just LOVE to do flower nail art designs. I think they are elegant, girly, beautiful, i need to continue? I think you get the point :) Flowers need to be bright, but this time i have chosen a dark background color. I think the flowers really pop . My friend Meliney send me some nice supplies to work with and to give away, how cool is that! She has her own webshop where she sells nail art supplies, stamping plates/polishes, brushes and a lot more.
She send me some detailbrushes, a wheel with different studs, a rhinestone picker pencil and some stickers.
This is the design i made with all the supplies (except for the stickers, i haven't used them)

At this moment i'm having the giveaway on my channel. I'm giving away the things i've used for my nail art design. Feel free to participate :)
Thank you and untill next time :)

French manicure with flower (Essence " A lovely secret")

Hi there!

Where is the sun? Where is the spring? Where is the summer? I want it, and i want it NOW! I'm sorry for my little rant, but i'm so fed up with the cold and everything. They even say we can expect snow this upcomming weekend :( Snow can be fun, when there is like 20 cm orso, but not that bit of wet snow, what makes a mess...

Because i needed something bright, and happy i made this flower design. Someone even told me they look a bit like hibiscus flowers.... I don't care if it's winter, christmas, easter or whatever, i always love to paint flowers on my nails!

For my french manicure i used Essence "A lovely secret'. It's a light purple polish. Although i'm not really a purple fan, i do love this one. I think i have it for ages, and never used it....*shame on me*...
I painted the flowers with acrylic paints by Jo Sonja. These paints have the perfect texture and are highly pigmented. I finished with Seche Vite topcoat. It's the best topcoat i've tried so far.
Of course i also made a tutorial on YouTube how i did this design. If you want to see it, click HERE

What do you think of this design? Do you like it?
Thanks for your interest!
Untill next time!

Take care, Camilla

Catrice "Blue Cara Ciao"


Animal print designs, in my opinion, always ROCK! You can never go wrong with animal print, leopard, zebra, tiger, it doesn't matter! I usually make tutorials on YouTube of every nail design i make, but leopard and zebra/tiger is done so often, they don't need a tutorial explaining how to do that.
With the leopard design i prefer the "original" colors, meaning with brown. This time i decided to try out a new color i recently bought from Catrice, called "Blue Cara Ciao". It's a very pretty creamy blue. I love Catrice polishes! The quality is so good and they don't cost much.
This is the design, clean and simple, hope you like it! Until next time :) Take care, Camilla
