Aztec

Today I’ve got some guest nails- my friend Sarah, who’s made an appearance here once or twice! I’ve quite wanted to try my hand at Aztec nails for a while- they’re massive at the mo, with people like Jessie J wearing them. Sarah has short nails so I thought I could whizz them out quickly.
Well, I was totally wrong. They look FOREVER! The first hand took an hour, and the second was a bit quicker at 45 mins. My bum was killing me by the end of it!
I used:

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: White On
OPI Ogre The Top Blue
Barry M Yellow
Revlon Red
Wet n Wild Black Creme
Dotting tool
Ridiculously tiny paintbrush


Can you tell which hand I did first?! I think one of them looks soooo much better than the other one....have a guess!

I actually love these, need to try them on myself. Bit scared of using my left hand though....I'm pretty good at doing art with my non-dominant hand but this is a whole new ballgame!

Til next time,
Alice

  2. Flawless and so on trend!!! I am quite new to nail art but I'm getting better. Maybe when I have some proper nail art pens I will revisit the post and have a go. Would love you to have a look at my first couple of nail art attempts on my blog and provide your expert opinion.

    1. I tried using nail pens but they weren't sharp enough at the tip to get the really clean lines I wanted! I'd recommend a tiny paintbrush as you can be really precise then :)

  5. New follower here, great blog! I'm loving the Aztec nails. I haven't tried these yet, but I know I need a few hours when I do them because I'm sure I'd be super slow at all that detail!
