Wave nail art

Hello my little nail polish addicts :D

I'm in a very good mood today, don't know why but don't you just love that happening :)

Anyways, polish.... I have wave nail art for you today. This has been painted over my last mani, my Moonlit Ocean franken. The 'ocean' bit gave me the idea for this art. (Ha! you don't say Ellie!)

The finished look
I get bored easily and a day after putting on some polish, I am already thinking to myself  'What can I add to this mani?' Sometimes, when I add things - glitter, nail art, bits I find lying around - it works, sometimes it doesn't. This time I think it did.

My tools for the Wave look
I don't yet own any nail art brushes but as I'm a painter I have a million brushes lying around so I use one of these. It does the job :) I noticed I didn't get a picture of the teal glitter used on the tips... :/ But a group shot including it can be found in my stash link for the minute, till I get a single shot to post here.

Ok, first I very untidily painted a wave shape on my nails with Pink Tease in white.

Then I roughly filled in half the wave with same.

Then I added some more of the Moonlit Ocean and white with the paint brush to blend them together a bit. Make sure you stipple the edges of the wave to give it a frothy, splashy... you-know-what-I-mean, kind of look. :D

This is what you should end up with.

 Give it a top coat to get rid of the stipply brush marks.

I then decided to add some glitter to them to give it that 'moonlit' sparkle. Then added another top coat. My nails should be an inch thick with all these coats!!


Don't forget to click on the pics to enlarge them.
Hope you like
See ya soon :)

  1. these look so cool! how creative of you!! I wish I was that creative...I've been sitting here staring at my nails (currently wearing WnW "On A Trip") wondering what in the world to do on them. I know I should probably try practicing stamping some more, but I think I'm feeling sluggish because of the heat.

    1. Thanks :D If you are anything like me, you have probably changed your polish by now, but I would probably do a pink leopard on those :) And I hate too much heat, makes me so tired :(

  2. Very wavy! I like it, but i would stare down at nails and dream for the beach :(

    1. Its not warm enough here just yet for the beach but if it was warmer, definitely! :)

  3. P.S. you've just been nominated for an award ;)

  4. Err...make that two awards :)
