Aaaand the guest posts continue! Today you guys get some gorgeous cherry nails by Robin of Rexxx Did It.
I’m Robin, a 22 year old girl, and I love painting my nails (duh!). I’ve only recently started my own nail art blog, but I am enjoying it a lot. I love how there is so much interaction with other nail artists and everyone is just so nice, I feel :)
So when I saw Lucy’s message about guest posting, I immediately knew that I wanted to help her – first of all because she makes gorgeous designs so it would be fabulous to feature on her blog; secondly because she is such a nice person and I really wanted to help; and thirdly because I had never done a guest post before. So I was really eager to give it a go :)
The design I’m showing you today really shows how much I’m longing for nice weather again haha. I’ve seen a few fruity designs the past couple of weeks (including Lucy’s watermelon design) and those all screamed spring to me. So I went for a sweet cherry design!
The polishes I used for this design are:
Alpine Snow – OPI
Muchi, Muchi – Essie
Big Apple Red – OPI
15 - Hema
For this design I started out with my Opi Nail Envy base coat. Then I put on two coats of Alpine Snow, and after that I added two coats of Muchi, Muchi.
The reason that I first used Alpine Snow is because Muchi, Muchi is a verrry sheer polish. When I last used this polish, it wasn’t opaque with four coats, and that’s where I draw the line coat-wise.
But with Alpine Snow underneath the colour looks reeeaally nice I think :) But to be honest, I had quite a hard time capturing the true colour of Muchi, Muchi here, it looks more vibrant in real life.
After applying Muchi, Muchi, I used a dotting tool to create the cherries with Big Apple Red. And after that I used a small brush to paint the stalks and leaves with my green nameless polish.
To finish this guest post, I just want to show you my nails together with my new wallet, because look: cherries all over! I got this wallet for my birthday a few weeks ago. Pretty, right?
Okay, that’s it! Thanks for reading, everyone, and thanks for having me, Lucy! It was really fun to create this manicure for you and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
These are so adorable! Would it be weird if I recreated nails that were done for a guest post on my own blog? :) Thank you so much, Robin!
