Violet Sparkle Nails and Candy Nails


I have been experimenting with my new Nubar Nail Art Pens. I had a little rattle of my brain and came up with these two ideas and i have to say i'm quite chuffed with myself!
The pens were so easy to use, both literally took me a few minutes with not even one mistake!

First up are my violet sparkle nails (I do love a bit o'bling!)
The Purple Glitter pen is my favorite, it comes out so evenly and surprisingly very easy to apply. After applying Nubar - Isis Purple, i started in the corner of my nails and brought the lines outwards. I started thicker at the ends and made the tips more gradient. I loved the results!

I wasn't sure how i was going to use the Hot Pink Pen - i can up with this candy stripe effect. Using Nubar 'Oh Baby Pink' underneath. I applied the Hot Pink pen in quick lines - this has a very striking effect and is much more vibrant off camera.

I am very impressed by these nail varnish pens. They come in two different types -
The Striper ~ £4.75
The 2Way Pen ~ £5.95

I think these are fabulous, even if your a novice like me!
What do you think? Do you like 'jazzing' up your nails?

    Nail art is great, leaves room for your imagination :)
    Great job, and i too love bling!!
    Have you used the end where you can make dots and things yet? easier for doing ♥ than using the brush.
