Guest Post: Nail Art with Project Lorna

Hi there, I'm Lorna from and projectnails and I'm delighted to share some quick tips on creating nail art with things you probably already have at home:

Start with your base colour already applied.

Using Pins for dots and stripes

Using sellotape for nail art

You'll get cleaner results if you remove the sellotape while the nail polish is still drying as it can lift up if you peel it off when it has completely dried.

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial. I'm busy training for a crazy climbing challenge so my hands are pretty beaten up at the moment but I don't let that get in the way of sparkly nails! I'd love to feature your nail art so if you try something out this summer make sure you take a picture, post it online and leave a comment pointing me to it so I can find you.


Thanks for guest posting, Lorna! I'm definitely going to try some of these, myself. If anyone else is interested in guest posting, send me an email at wattlebirddesigns AT gmail DOT com.
