This month I got my nails done by Clara again, I decided to go for something a little more toned down and simple so we decided on bows and leopard print.
I had a lovely time and even weeks later they look absolutely perfect so be sure to check out Clara at Tsumiki!

3D Japanese Nail Art Pastel Leopard Print and Bows
Clara H Nail Art
Leopard Print Bling!
Today I got my nails filled and redone by Clara H.
First the old jewels and 3D parts were removed.
The polish was removed too.
Cuticles treated too and the old nails buffed down.
Next the bare nail was filled in with acrylic and shaped into place.
They were buffed to a nice smooth finish.
Of course this all came with a side of girly chat!
Top coating for protection next.
Then it was all about the design.
I picked pastel base.
The pastel colours were painted on as a base.
Clara painted the leopard print with pastel acrylic paint.
To make the leopard print style she used light brown random splotches.
The darker brown to outline them.
Of course, that was just the start. Acrylic bows first.
To make the bows she used two large balls of acrylic.
Made dents in the middle and added a small bow for the middle tie.
After the bows were complete it was bling time!
The large pieces of bling were held on with clear acrylic.
After the big pieces, small damantes and pearls were added around them.
Lastly a top coat to protect it all.
I love that they are blingy but not too over the top.
Of course with nails this cute we wanted to share them!
So beautiful. Thank you Clara!
I hope you enjoyed watching these beautiful nails come together.
