My First Nail Art

  I love painting my nails and most of the time my mani  includes two coats of colour no design or pattern that makes people go wow that's great how did you do it ? but yesterday that changed, for the first time I tried some simple nail art. To people that can easily design their nails without thinking twice this probably looks crap but to be honest I'm  pretty proud of them. My nail art disaster started a few years ago when I bought a pack of nail art pens from Argos , I tried to recreate difficult
nail designs that turned out lumpy and very hard  to figure out what the design was.

Two years later  I have researched and found some great inspiration that will help me create simple ,effective designs. After reading nail art blogs for a while I realised that I would need some nail art tools to assist me in creating some nail art designs, so I bought some very cheap dotting tools from Amazon. They are seriously cheap and  free UK delivery but they did take up too four weeks to reach me but at £1.40 I can't really complain. For my fist design I painted my nails red using Essie Lacquered Up, then using my dotting tool I used Sinful Colours Snow me white to create the white dots. This nail art is super easy and can be achieved by anyone, I am so pleased with the results and can't wait to try some more designs.
 
What are your  nail art skills like ?
