Red Red Nails

Jieling came over today with her cousin and both of them did red french tip polka nails!

They ended up with entirely different versions though – here’s Jieling’s Hello Kitty nails:

I used OPI Passion as the base colour, OPI Big Apple Red for the red tips and OPI Alpine Snow for the white tips. All the dots and details were done with acrylic paint.

Her cousin had a shorter nail bed and had chipped nails on her index fingers, so we tried a design that would create an optical illusion of longer nails:

Again, OPI Passion as the base. The red is China Glaze Hey Sailor! – which is brighter and a wee bit more orange compared to OPI’s Big Apple Red. I used my Art Club silver glitter striper to line the french tips and the sections. Finally, she wanted to give acrylic nail art a try, so I added a ribbon to the ring fingers!
