Fancy Friday #148 – Nimbus nail art

Happy Good Friday. I hope you had a good week and is enjoying the Easter break. Today we are doing Nimbus or Halo nail art. The original artist behind this technique is Sammy from The Nailasaurus. You can see the last time I did Nimbus nail art right here. It was in the same color scheme as this time, but that was not on purpose.


I did three coats of Appeal4 Out of this World on my thumb and index nail. On the other nails I started out with two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme. On my pinky I topped that with one coat of Kiko 230 Sparkle Touch Rainbow Glitter. It is a little hard to see, but it is an iridescent glitter. For the Nimbus nails I used OPI Planks a Lot, Kiko 504 Pearly Glaze Pink, Different Dimension Aria, H&M Marsala Chai and Appeal4 Out of this World, and just layered them.


The last couple of days the sun have been shining, but of course it is raining the day I need to take photos, so the holographic polish on my index didn’t show up as well, so here is a flash photo to show the holographicness. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I dag er temaet Nimbus nail art. Det er en teknik som Sammy fra The Nailasaurus har fundet på. Den er ganske simpel og hurtigt at lave. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.



#WeekendOffNailArtChallenge – Day 13 Nimbus

Today’s theme is nimbus. This week we are doing different techniques. Today we are jumping into the nimbus, a technique thought up by Sammy from The Nailasaurus. It is quite simple to do, you just thin some polish using acetone and then dot it on the nail using a cotton bud soaked in acetone.


I used two coats of OPI Alpine Snow as the base and then started with Flormar 240, then Sally Hansen Pink Bouquet, OPI Kiss Me I’m Brazilian, OPI Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around and OPI I Love Applause. I layered the different colors and went back in randomly to cover any white spots.


I finished with a coat of Seche Vite. I was a bit surprised at how easy it actually was. Sometimes simple techniques are not so simple when you try them out for the first time. I’m definitely trying this technique again. It would be really nice as an accent nail.
