Hi and welcome! This is Black Saliva, a style focused blog written by Viivi Vanessa R.

I'm a 24 year old girl from Helsinki, Finland and this blog is my own little space on the internet where I can share my thoughts, outfits and write a bit about my life and stuff that I do.

For first timers, I'd say take a quick look at ABOUT ME and get to know me a little before browsing through my posts.

Anyway, I hope you like my blog and leave me a comment.

watercolor nails

Hi guys! As I told you in my previous post, I'm leaving to Italy tomorrow! And since it's a beauty fair I'm going to attend, I wanted to do my nails before the trip so they will be as fab as possible! Here's what I came up with yesterday:

idkuva
What do you think? Can any of you tell what I was inspired by? :D If not, click here to see the inspiration for my design.

The polishes I used are: Sugar Plum by Ciaté (light purple), my typical gold glitter combo: O.P.I When Monkeys Fly!, Color Club Take The Stage, Color Club Gingerbread and Essie Blanc (white). I also used white art liner for painting the designs on the purple nails and two shades from the new O.P.I Sheer Tints -collection: Be Magentale With Me (pink) and I Can Teal You Like Me (blue).

When I first heard about O.P.I releasing the Sheer Tints -collection, I wasn't interested at all. But after seeing some designs made with them, I totally changed my mind and thought it was actually a pretty cool idea and had to get my hands on them. They're color-tinted top coats if you're wondering btw. You can use them to change the shade of your nailpolish or create different watercolor-like designs with them! Cool right?

Luckily they also come in these mini sets, so I decided to get one of them for myself. I made a tiny step-by-step tutorial about these nails. Here's how to get the watercolor look:

1. Start with painting the nail with white. Apply 2-3 coats to get an opaque result. Let it dry.

2. Once the white base has dried, get your Sheer Tints ready by opening the bottles, because you need to do this step kinda quickly so the nailpolish won't dry before you're done. Use the nailpolish bottle's own brush and apply the polish to your nail with random strokes and overlay the colors with eachother. As I said, it's important to be fast while doing this, so the colors will blend together easier.

3. Once dry, decorate with studs, pearls and rhinestones of your choice! Apply a top coat or sealing gel to secure your desing.

DONE!


I hope you liked the nails and the mini tutorial! See you again next week!

  15. Kauan sulla menee tällästen kynsien teossa? siis jos teet ihan alusta asti

  16. Ihan tällee mielenkiinnosta kysyn että miksi pidät tällaisia kynsiä kauniina? Mikä niissä sua viehättää? Ku siis tähän on makuasia mut musta noi on ihan kamalan näköiset. Muuten pidän sun tyylistä mut noi kynnet on jotenki yliampuvat. Ois kiva kuulla kuitenkin miks sä pidät niistä ja mist oot saanu innostuksen tollasiin kynsiin?

    1. ....koska ne näyttää mun mielestä kivalta? :D
      eiks tää oo vähän sama asia ku kysyis et "miks tykkäät suklaasta? -no maistuu hyvältä"
      innostus kynsiin lähteny alunperin japsimuodista ja gyarusta ja nykyään seuraan ihan kansainvälisiäkin kynsitrendejä.

      pitkät kynnet saa näyttään sormet siroilta ja pitkiltä ja pitkissä kynsissä on kivasti tilaa toteuttaa omaa luovuutta :)
