Abstract Swirls

Some of you were curious to know what my nails looked like on the first day of school (Monday the 15th) so here it is!

A few nights before school started I saw this tutorial by Robin Moses and I knew that I had to try it! I'm always inspired by what she creates.

Robin makes great videos that explains everything she is doing and why she is doing it. It really helps for when you want to try something out and don't know where to begin.

Hers turned out a little more clean but...well, I'm just Shaina, she's Robin Moses.


For this manicure I used Essence Forget Me Not as the base. I began by drawing swirls and lines all over my nails with Zoya Breezi and a nail art brush. Then I drew small lines coming out of the swirls. Robin highlighted this design with glitter on the little lines, so I did too! The glitter I used is Sinful Colors Hottie. I still didn't fell like it was enough so I added white dots to random places on each nail.

Topcoat was really beneficial to this design. I wasn't sure if I liked it on me and then I added topcoat and fell in love!


Also, I discovered a new-to-me blog a couple days ago that I want to share with you. It's called Nail Nerd. Her nail art really amazes me. Her creativity is insane and she is so original!

That's all, I hope you all have a great day!
