Tops and Tips!


This design was inspired by some nails I saw recently on the WAH Nails Instagram feed. They always have some really funky designs going on, and although these are a bit plainer, I liked the nude paired with the black and white, and the fact that there were french tips AND half-moons. Although they're a bit bold for work, I thought I'd try them anyway! Here's the WAH version:

I used Baby Doll by Ciaté as my base shade - it's kind of a pastel peach colour and is from their Dolls House collection. It's a nightmare to apply due to it being matte finish, and is so streaky even after a second coat, but luckily a third coat evens it out. I was originally going to try a gradient with this and a few other of the dolls house shades, but because they dry so quickly it was too hard to do and I got annoyed and decided to do this design instead! As usual for freehand stuff, I used my black and white Barry M nail art pens. 

Also, go and give Ciaté a like on Facebook, apparently they're giving all their followers a free polish when they get to 100,000 - a bit ambitious maybe as they're only on about 35,000 at the moment, and I dunno how they're going to give away 100,000 polishes, but still - sounds good if it happens! 


  1. These are stunning! I love the simplicity of this and it looks just like WAH Nails' design! I'm so excited for Ciate's nail polish giveaway - hopefully they'll get to 100,000 likes soon! :)

  2. these look amazing and so chrisp :)

  3. This looks awesome! I love it :D And my guess is the Ciaté giveaway will be '1 free polish with your order' :( xx

  4. Lovely design....& I hope Ciate can cope with their free giveaway. It could cost them a small fortune.
