trendy mauve

Shades of pink and purple are great for any season. The pink flower against the dark plum nail polish creates a more soft/mauve colour.

you will need:
- base and top coat
- M67
- konad special polishes in white and light pink

try your best to paint your nails in a dark plum colour in order to create the soft mauve effect =]
- OPI "give me moor"
- OPI "linkin park after dark"
- Nubar "purple rain"
- Revlon "devilish"
- L'Oreal Paris "stroke of midnight"

Paint the small flower in white and the larger flower in light pink at the same time. Then place it however you like and they don't all have to be in the same direction =]

have fun =]

I'm sure many of you will recognize this colour combination =] known to represent the jewelry brand, Tiffany & Co.

This is an easy design to do
all you need is:
- base and top coat
- M56 or you can also use M59
- a nail polish colour similar to the one shown in the picture
or here are some recommendations:
- China Glaze in "for audrey" (the one used in the photo)
- China Glaze "flyin high"
- Rimmel in "royal mint"
- Konad in "pastel green"
- N.Y.C. in "east village"
- Essie in "mint candy apple"
- Joe Fresh "mint"
Aldo is coming out with a nail lacquer line and there is going to be a shade similar to this called "poolside in malibu" =]

have any more suggestions? please post a comment =]
thank you =]

The design is pretty straight forward.
Paint your nails and then place the bow design near the tips.

soft swirls

This design reminded me of vanilla icecream. Perfect for spring or summer =] you can choose to do this in any colour you like.

you will need:
- base and top coat
- a sheer nail polish colour
- M69

You can use 2-3 more colours to create your own design.

You can use half the design to stamp on the tips of your nails for a new design.
