Nail Art: Black Tear

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.

I am amazed at how straight those lines are! Looks so pretty

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.

OMG I have to see that on video! Now that sounds difficult

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:
