Dry brush nail art manicure | Polished Elegance nail art blog

Dry brush

I swatched some new H&M polishes back in April (yes this is old!), I think I bought a trio of nude polishes, and they all looked great in the bottle, but they did not look good on me. So I tried to make this color work by adding some black dry brush to it. I […]

Bronzed snowflakes

Me and my boyfriend have made advent calendars for each other this year (yes, it took a couple of months of nagging from me and a final “we are doing this no discussion”), he had no idea what to get me, so I went around and took pictures and wrote down a bunch of ideas […]

I’m trying to do a challenge for December! It’s the “GlamNailsChallenge” for December, first theme is “Santa Claus”. I was supposed to post this on the 4th, but I completely forgot! Since I’m a little late with this manicure I decided to go pretty simple, I used a red polish as my base but you […]

Mint and Pink Thorns

What Ups Nails sent me some amazing nail vinyls to try out! For this manicure I used the Thorns Stencils, I’m not very experienced using nail vinyls, I’ve only tried one other brand before, but these are the best ones I’ve tried to so far! The other ones I’ve tried had too much of a strong glue, […]

Every Month is Oktoberfest

I have been gone for a loooong time, and then I just popped up with a video! I have barely worn nail polish the last 6 months, life has just been too busy to live, I’m not kidding. But I filmed a “get ready with me” video where I talk a little about what’s been […]

Marble nail fail

I guess I’m being too hard on my self when I’m calling this a “fail”, because it’s not really bad, it’s just now I had imagined! I think it would look better/more like I wanted it to, if I didn’t use as much black polish, I wanted more of the white base to show through. […]
