Hi all,
yesterday i posted a post on nails now trend. The very first popular nail trend which i mentioned is "running stripes".Doing stripes is very easy but you should have a steady hand. You can draw any  kind of lines like horizontal, vertical, diagonal. Here I am sharing with u the very easy way of making diagonal stripes.

1. Apply a Base Coat.
2. Apply a layer of your Favorite colour.let this layer dry completely.
3. Cut very thin strips of sticky tape and place on the nail as you wish.
4. Apply  Black nail enamel over the entire nail.
5. When almost dry remove sticky tape and Voila Pretty nails!!!

HI ALL.......:)
 Today i am sharing u with a mani which i did few days back on my clients hands and now its on my nails .....
but let me tell u how it comes up or what inspired me to experiment this.....

story time:

few days back , a girl around 24 years old comes to my studio. she asked me "can you do a nail art on my nails in 15 minutes, its my engagement today"  and i answered no way for engagement mani 15 chance ...she said pls do it anything fast will go.....she showed me her engagement gown.....i told her that its already 8"O" clock in the evening and my assistant has gone...i can't do it in 15 min...sorry....she become all teary...i asked her why didn't she come earlier.....the party is at 10 ...just 2 hrs left and she had to do her makeup also( her appointment to other parlor is fixed).....she said "she knows it but i just read your board and want my nails done ...pls do it ....its my big day"....i said okay i will do something fast...told her it would not be perfect but ya it will satisfy her .....when i am deciding the colors she told me that tomorrow is her wedding can I do something which also goes with her lehenga.....i asked her the wedding dress color off course its red and gold and her engagement gown color is in short my challenge is to do a two in one mani .....that too in 15-20 minutes ....without my darling assistant mala........:)
but good thing is that i have one common color to work on "Gold".

i always dread water mater marbling..... because its very clumsy and if something goes wrong while doing it in front of got screwed.....but yesterday ROBINMOSES shares this very easy technique...

first apply your base color 2 coats....when the base color is super wet make random stripes of 2-3 colors....again when the  stripes are super wet using very thin brush smudge/ swirl the stripes don't mix them too much......after it dries ....apply topcoat....and u r done.

 While looking for inspiration for future nail designs, I stumbled upon these images of Ciate's latest creation: Caviar nails.

 Caviar nails first appeared last fall during the edgy Cushnie et Ochs runway show, and have been on nail art lovers’ radars ever since.UK nail polish brand, Ciate, has decided to make achieving the look even easier with their innovative “Caviar Manicure” kits. The kits are a one-stop-shop as they consist of a nail lacquer and beads. Presently, you have your pick of three colors – multi (rainbow), white (mother of pearl), and black (black pearls). We’re sure more hues will be offered as demand increases. The kits will be available in the US this April at your friendly, neighborhood Sephora.


This nail art is a nice combination of white and black colors in interesting design.To make this nail art follow my step by step tutorial below.

things u need:
  1. Tips& toes mini nail enamel,13, IVY.
  2. L.A. colors art deco,black.
  3. NYX, nail art ink,NA05, black glitters.
  4. dotting tool.
