Nimbus Nail Art (The Nailasaurus' technique)


Hello all!

For today's design, I recreated the Nimbus Nails from The Nailasaurus. Mine look a bit different from hers but I looooove how they turned out!
I used The Nailusaurus great tutorial, which you can find here.


Everything is explained very clearly in her tutorial, so I will not elaborate here on how I created these nails as I just followed her tutorial. I did however change one thing: instead of acetone, I just used nail polish remover to thin the polish (because I don't own acetone, to be honest).

I think that because of the remover, my design turned out a bit different: the layers of polish are not so thin as The Nailasaurus' layers are. I don't mind this at all however, because I adore how these nails turned out!

I used my new purple polishes fom Guylond, which unfortunately do not have a name - I bought them in a "create ombre nails" pack together. The one big polish on the left is nr. 12 from Hema.



I also added two gold studs because I like the combination of purple and gold :)


So, do you like these? They were definitely a lot of fun to make, so I will try to create these again with some other colours!

Thanks for reading!

Beautiful mani - The Nimbus turned out so well! I tried it recently too, but yours are much better than mine!
Anyway, I just nominated you for the Liebster Blogging award (the post is here: http://pardonmynails.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/i-was-recently-nominated-for-liebster.html)!

So sorry if you've already done it! I couldn't seem to find it on your blog and I LOVE your manis so decided to nominate you!

Aww thanks! I haven't done that award yet so I'm looking forward to it! It might take me a while though but I'll definitely do it! And I loved your Nimbus nails so there's no need to be so modest about them! :)

These look beautiful! I love how yours are a little darker and the dots of polish are a little bolder than the Nailasaurus' version, it makes it look a little edgy and science-fiction-y :)

Robin said...

Thank you Lucy! I think it's because of the polish remover (instead of acetone) but yes I love the effect as well! Science-fiction-y is a really cool description! :)
