Pusheen Cat Mermaid Nail Art

Hey everyone!
February is almost over and just yesterday I realised that the Pusheen Cat design that I had done for International Cat Day hit 360 pins on Pinerest. As you can imagine I was super excited and since you guys loved it so much I decided to do another one.

This time I was inspired by this picture I found on Instagram.
Isn't it adorable??

And here is my version of it!

For the nails with Pusheen Cat on them, I decided to use a dark petrol polish as my base and for the rest of the nails I wanted to do a mermaid tail look. I thought a gradient would look perfect for this effect and was inspired by Pusheen Cat's mermaid tail colors. So I used a pink polish as my base and with a make up sponge I dabbed the 3 colors (dark petrol, mint, pink) on the nails to create the gradient. I did that 2 times to achieve a nice airbrush look, topped them with a glitter and finally topped all nails with a fast drying top coat.
When all nails were dry I used acrylic paint for the designs and topped them again with fast drying top coat.

I hope you guys like this one as much as my older design. Tell me what you think! :)

Minimal Lines

New year! New month!

Jeez, I've been gone for way too long!
I'm not gonna lie. I was completely out of inspiration the past months and a lot of things were going on that kept me distracted. 

Lately, I've only been wearing plain nail polish on my nails. No nail art whatsoever.
So I decided to make a smooth transition from zero nail art to any form of nail art.
I thought what better than something minimal!

Even though I haven't been posting anything, I still follow all my favorite nail artists and was inspired to do a simple and elegant design from @rosebnails on instagram, in a different color combo.
You know how much I love linework! 
So here it is.

Super easy and there's a ton of color combinations you could try! It's probably the easiest thing to do after dots! You only need a long bristle nail art brush and black acrylic paint or nail polish. I used acrylic paint for the lines because it works better for me and if you make a mistake you can just rub it off with water and a cotton swab before sealing with top coat.

Hope you guys like this and give it a try! 

P.S. I'll do my best not to disappear again for so long! :)
