40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Earth Tones

Today's post is the last in the year long '40 Great Nail Art Ideas' challenge. What a year it has been, quite eventful personally, however I did manage to complete the challenge and all posts were on time, which considering is an achievement I am sure!

Anyhow on to the nails, when I envisioned these in my mind I didn't think I would like them but actually I really did. Along with earth tones I had to add in the prompt of needle drag.

Review: Born Pretty Store - Nail Stencils / Vinyls Stars Y025*


This product is a nail stencil or a nail vinyl in the shape of stars. In the pack you get 9 large star stencils and 3 smaller star stencils.


The stencils are quite fiddly to work with and can be quite delicate and easy to break.

To use these I painted my nail in a metallic purple colour and waited for that to completely dry, before painting over with a darker shade and the finally removing the stencil using tweezers to reveal the lighter shade underneath.


Overall creating a look you would struggle to create either freehand or with a standard striping tape method.

You can check out all of the new arrivals at BornPrettyStore here and what is currently most popular here.
