Nail Art: Black Tear by GinkgoWerkstatt Nail Art: Black Tear by GinkgoWerkstatt
I kinda fell in love with having these kind of designs and i am sure that i will try a lot of different versions during the next time.
A few days ago i wanted to do something with the green again and also wanted to have something "summer like" - because we only have rain here - without being too bold.


:bulletgreen: Chachacha (green) and Papaya Punch (orange); both from China Glaze "Tropical Escape".
:bulletorange: Black nail designer polish from Rival de Loop Young
:bulletgreen: Black tear-shaped rhinestone; Nail Jewels from Essence (purple version)
:bulletorange: "Multi Dimensions" XXL Shine from Essence



:pointr: I usually don't really care for the brands of beauty products, but i really love the China Glaze polish and Essence.
China Glaze is a bit expensive (and not easy to get in Germany) but worth it and very long lasting.

Me too. But if you move the brush of the nail polish and the finger at the same time, it is easier to get such results - at least it feels like that for me.

I use China Glaze too - it's brilliant. :heart: This makes me want to paint my nails again... mine are rather plain at the moment. :<
How did you get the stripes so perfect? O: For the thin black one do you have one of those nail polishes that's like a pen? :O

It totally is! But i can just get it via ebay here ._.

Haven't had anything fancy lately, but wanted to give something more complex a try soon. Just don't know what yet :lol:
Oh, i dunno. I move my finger and the brush at the same time in different directions. I don't really pay attention to that or have to concentrate, luckily it just works out when using the brush.
It case it gets too wonky, you can use a cotton bud with nail polish remover to make it look more even.

No it's a bottle who has a metal tip for dots and a very fine brush for such lines. Love it!

I get it off of ebay, too. xD I haven't seen it in any shops in the UK. :saddummy:

Oh of course, because you only painted the tips you could touch it up without removing the base. :O That's rather cool.

That sounds brilliant! Is that the Rival de Loop Young stuff you mentioned in the comments? Any idea where I could find something similar? ...I can't find any on ebay. :<

btw you could use regular brushes as well. Just get one with a tiny tip and use it with your regular nail polish. Did that already as well. Just don't forget to clean the brush afterwards :lol:

I honestly never would have thought to use a normal paintbrush - and I have so many! xD I might give that a go first. c:

Thanks for all your help! :cuddle:

Sorry for the incredibly late reply... I managed to lose a few old comments. D':

I got that from ~Tartofraises - i just love the stuff she is doing. On her blog she often adds videos of how to do things. :nod:

It's ok, no need to apologize. No one is in a hurry! :hug:

It's a shame that they don't sell it in the shops... or maybe we just visit the wrong ones :B

Or if you have a darker nail polish for the second area you can "overwrite" it as well, to make it look better. Most of the time it is just cheating lol

Just looked at the UK ebay and found this [link]
It's similar to what i have and should work the same way :nod:
Seems like the english version has much cooler stuff :shifty:

10-15min or so. It is not very complex and you can apply the polish all at once, except for the top coat :aww:

thanks...I bite my nails so I look for inspiration to stop me from biting them!! having long nails to do that is definitely a reason!!! :D

I never did that and i couldn't live with short nails, that always irritates me all the time. Mainly because my nails are something like tools as well :giggle:

But it's a good reason to let them grow :D

I don't even realize I'm doing it half the time it's a nervous thing. Yeah I get frustrated sometimes when I have to find something else cause I can't use my nails argh. :D

The english site was better than the german version, which is just an online catalogue that takes too long to load :B

They have some fancy brown colors, but the rest isn't much what i like. But it's difficult to judge that from photos/pics. I prefer to see colors always in real.

Found some on ebay, but that stuff is expensive, compared to the size D:
But who knows, maybe i will give it a try one day :giggle:
