Pinterest Corner #3 – Coloured Nail Tips

I’m a bit of a fan of painting my nails and it’s definitely all about the colour for me; the brighter the colour or the sparklier the glitter the better! On the run up to Christmas I tried a few different colour combinations, which you can see below but I think the turquoise and gold combo was my favourite design.

As I’m a nail decoration fan I have of course created quite an eclectic mix of ideas on my Fantastically Painted Nails Pinterest board and I’m keen to try some of the ideas I’ve pinned in 2013. So this weekend I gave one of the ideas a go, so here’s the very first nail varnish related Pinterest Corner, Coloured Nail Tips. Be warned I’m sure it’ll be the first of many!

The original pin was this example of nude/neon nails, which I love! What I love most is how simple the concept looks (and presumably is to do) but also that it’s unusual compared to normal nails. I mean I’ve not seen many nails that are plain with a coloured tip, have you? So when copying this pin I made a few amends, as per usual! First off I don’t own neon nail varnish, so I stuck to just one colour, secondly I don’t own a nude nail varnish either so I just kept the rest of the nail clear. Below are the finished nails, what do you think?

But apart from that I love this design, and so does everyone else – I’ve got some lovely comments about them so far. My only slight bugbear is that a couple of them are already a little chipped and it’s only been 36 hours or so, which is slightly annoying. I suppose it’s to be expected as its always the tips of the nails that chip first but still argh!
