This Isn't New!

... today's design, I mean.
I've been seing it in the nail world for a while now and as I have a thing with hypes (I usually just follow when they're not hypes anymore) I hadn't tried it yet.

But seeing that the hype may have reached its end, I decided to give it a go and see how it looked on my nails.

I'm talking about cartoon nails and I'm sure you've seen them around too:






Ta-da!
I don't know if it's because my nails are just too long, but I didn't really become a fan of the cartoon look...





At least it was good practice for ruffians ;)
I started with one coat of black (Purple Professional No.18) and did a rufffian with fuchsia (Bellaoggi Summer Red).





Then all that was left was to do a very thin french tip with the same black and add the shiny bits to each nail.
I used OPI Alpine Snow.





I can't tell if its due to nail lenght or not but truth is... I've seen this look cuter on a lot of other nail bloggers...
I guess it just isn't for me.





How about you - is this one a yes or a no-no for you!?
Let me know all about it in the comment section below and enjoy you Wednesday evening! :)


Hugs & Kissies,

      Well, if there's anything I've learnt is that practice makes things look better and better each time - so, go for it ;)

  6. They. look. like. rock star. nails! They look amazing on you, Mina! I had seen those on smaller nails, that's maybe why you don't like them that much, but trust me: they look fantastic! They are on my to-do list... we'll see when I will get there. But I bet the trend will not even be remembered then :p

    1. I think that's the thing - don't they look cuter on shorter nails? ;)
      Either way, I'm really happy you liked them and yes, I'm a bit like you, too - I get in the trend motion once it's passed away hahhah :)
