Blue Eyes

Eye based nail art seems to be having a mini revolution at the moment. Emma has done two designs featuring eyes on the blog already (here and here), so I thought I would join in the fun! These big blue peepers were originally inspired by a WAH Nails design, but I adapted it a little. I've also seen lots of eye designs by the folks over at I Scream Nails.

The eyes were super simple to create:

                  1. Paint on a semi circle of white at the tip of your nail
                  2. Add a smaller semi circle of colour to form the iris
                  3. Add a third semi circle in black for the pupil and add a white reflection dot
                  4. Outline the eye and add lashes using a black nailart pen

I started with a couple of coats of Barry M Limited Edition multicolour glitter. The base for this polish is clear, so the result was a semi transparant glitter background for the eyes, which I love! The white, blue and black nail art pen are also Barry M shades.

I love these nails so much, can't get over how cute and silly they are. I think my eyes look a little surprised!


  1. Super cool! I also adore the glitter background, so pretty!

    1. Thanks Robin! Nothing like a bit of sparkle to get you through a gloomy Monday! E&J.xx

  2. This is great! The glitter background works really well! :)

    1. Thank you! We love this glitter! E&J.xx

  3. Beautiful! The base colour is awesome!

    1. Thanks! It's kind of like the glitter 'Diamond' in Barry M's permanent collection. E&J.xx
