Winter Berries Nail Art


WB3 Winter Berries Nail Art

I’ve been meaning to post this one for a while actually, it was my weekend manicure a couple of weeks ago. I actually got the idea from a post I saw on one of the nail art Tumblr accounts. I follow about 7 of those and never saved the photo, so I’m afraid I have no idea who did the original design and don’t have the picture to show you! Haha, just clarifying this wasn’t all my idea. From what I remember, the girl who did it originally had a really intricate little birdie on her ring finger, but I think that’s a bit beyond my skillz! In fact, mine doesn’t even really look like berries on branches (which is what it’s supposed to be), but it looks pretty cool anyway.

This was actually really, really easy. I used Eyeko Pastel Polish for my base colour, then used a black striper for the ‘branches’. Easy as pie, just tiny, short flicks with the brush to taper the ends. Like so:

Then I just used a dotting tool with Eyeko Saucy Polish for the berries. I varied the pressure I was applying to the dotting tool so I had some larger dots and some smaller ones, because frankly I’m too lazy to use two different sized tools. And that’s it!

    This turned out really well. I kinda prefer that it isn’t obviously berries on branches.

    Gorgeous! Love the pastel blue base colour. You always make your designs sound really simple but I know that I could never do something like this on my own nails! x

    They are really pretty! Due to trying to save money,I’ve soaked my acrylic names off, any tips for revitalising my real nails will be gratefully received xx
