40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Food

I'm playing catch up at the moment and this is the prompt for 2 weeks ago, which was food.

I wanted to do something a little different so I created a design inspired by the secret rainbow cakes.  Those cakes that are covered in plain icing and look quite simple until you cut into them and the sponge inside is a rainbow of colours, sometimes layered and sometimes swirled.  I went with the swirled option.

Nail Art for Holi

The Hindu spring festival of Holi will be celebrated on 24 March 2016.  It is also known as the festival of colour and part of the celebrations for this festival involve throwing brightly coloured perfumed powder.

Taking this as inspiration I created this nail art look:

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - 3 Shades of Green

The theme for 40 Great Nail Art Ideas this week is three shades of green and my added technique is tape mani.

I redid this mani about 4 times using 12 different green polishes before deciding on this look.


It wasn't that I had too few green polishes to choose from (I had over 30) but I had trouble matching up polishes that worked well together.

Details of the polishes I used are after the jump.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Pastels

This week for 40 great nail art ideas I have the prompt pastels with swirls.  I will admit to redoing this look about 4 or 5 times before deciding on this one.  It was quite a hard challenging settling on just one thing for this prompt.  I also had some major nail breaks so I don't have much space to work with at the moment.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Red

The prompt for this week's challenge is red and  I had the added pattern stripes.

Due to a close family bereavement I haven't had much time for doing my nails over the past few weeks so my designs have all been things which are fairly quick to do.  This week I thought I would do some rustic looking stripes.
