Festival Fun Times

Festival season is upon us again, so we've got some fun festival nail art for you today. A mixture of neon, glitter and tribal - you can't go wrong!

I love mixing pastels and neons together, it shouldn't work but it so does! Emma is better at matching colours than I am, so I often try to keep it simple, but can't help combos like this sometimes. I used Models Own - Lilac Sheen and O.P.I - Life Gave Me Lemons as the base colours. Disappointingly the yellow didn't come out that well in the photos, the camera couldn't really capture the highligher-esque neon glow. The glitter is Models Own - Southern Lights, such an awesome holographic polish! Whenever I'm wearing Southern Lights I can't help staring at it, such a distraction...




Whenever I think of festival nails they always feature a tribal print. This design is inspired by a ton of Instagram designs, picking different parts from each. I'm still trying to find the perfect tribal. I didn't want to do a tribal pattern on every nail so threw in some glitter fades for a bit of sparkle. Mixing bold prints and girly glitters is a great way to create a fun mani which really stands out!

What festivals are you going to this summer? What are you planning on your nails, bold and bright or cute and girly?

Love,
