Nail Art: Scandinavian Nails

Scandinavian nail art

Happy Monday, sweets! I’m a big fan of Scandinavian designs, and I’ve been meaning to try out a bit of Scandinavian goodness on my nails. And today, while looking around my room for some inspirations, I found the perfect thing hanging on the wall.

Aren’t these just beyond pretty?! These images are taken from Harvest 2013 Calendar (I bought it from here), which is designed by a Norwegian design agency Darling Clementine.

Oh, these colours! Yes, smiling at the calendar has become a routine of mine since 2013 began :)

I used (from left):

Scandinavian nail art polish
  • BarryM / Block Orange
  • China Glaze / Liquid Leather
  • Ducato / CH500
  • essie / Smokin’ Hot
  • essie / Cocktail Bling
  • essie / Jazz
  • miss sporty / 12

How to get the look:

1) Apply base coat.

2) Follow this tutorial to prepare nail decals (made of nail polish). I made two mountains (for thumb and middle finger), two flowers (for thumb and index finger), one leaf (for index finger) and one apple (for ring finger).

3) Apply three coats of Block Orange on thumb, Jazz on index and ring fingers, Cocktail Bling on middle finger, Smokin’ Hot on little finger.

4) Apply the decals on each nail, and draw other details with polish.

5) Apply top coat.

Oh yes, I’m in love! Yap, now I can’t stop adoring and smiling at my own nails (I know, sounds lame, and it probably is) :) And you know what, this is one of my favourite nail arts I’ve done so far on this entire blog (yayyy)! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I do!
