July 2017 Nail art collabs

This month I took part in 3 nail art collabs on my Instagram @myrealnails so I thought I would do a blog post about them.

The first one I took part in was on the 2nd of July and it was a cancer awareness collab hosted by Chloe – @tippedoffnails

126  people took part in this collab which is the biggest collab I’ve ever taken part in. For this one we could use any colour and it had to contain a cancer ribbon.

For my contribution I used W7 “pink feathers” which is the pink glitter and I used OPI “let’s be friends!” which is the pale pink base for the accent nail.

The second collab I took part in which was on the 11th of July was hosted by Teju @amritkarteju and Dani @creatively_danielle which was a tribute to very talented nail artist called Ane Li who sadly past on the 11th of July 2016. For this collab we had to recreate one of Ane Li’s nail art designs.

I found it really hard to decide which design of hers to recreate as she created so many gorgeous nail art designs. For this I used models own “Asscher blue”, Primark “optic” and Sally Hansen “Buffalo nickel”. I created this design using striping tape and a dotting tool.

The final collab I took part in was for @thepolishlist Vicky’s birthday which was hosted by Bethany @bnailedtoperfection. The theme for this was pink as it is Vicky’s favourite colour.

I used Nails inc “Notting hill gate” for the base of this and then used OPI “Never have too mani friends” for the cat. I then decided to add Barry M’s matte top coat to finish it off.

Those are all the collabs I took part in this month. I don’t normally do much nail art but I really enjoyed doing all of these so I’m hoping to start doing nail art more often.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
