Girly Nails with Maybelline Bleached Neons – Coral Heat

July 18, 2014 in Nail Art, Nails by paulina

Hello my beautiful friends and happy Friday! It’s so hot today in Germany and I just popped home to write this post very quickly before I melt. Those of you with air conditioning, I envy you! The other day, I got another one of the beautiful Maybelline Bleached Neons called Coral Heat. When I was looking at it in the store, I thought “Nope, I don’t need another pink”, but that was so wrong! I need it and I might even need a backup ;) I made some cute, girly nails with that very bright coral. Let’s take a look.

This cute little flower lace at the top is inspired by the talented Dee known as @deanne29 on Instagram. Not only the lace is inspired by her, but the whole design actually ;) Sometimes, I love making simple and girly nails like these and with a pretty coral like this Maybelline one, you don’t need much more.

I started this look with my base coat and making the white lace. I started doing it with my acrylic paints, but quickly I switched to a normal nail polish, because it wasn’t going so well with the acrylic paints. The white polish I used was Essie Blanc. Once the lace was done, I filled out the spaces near the lace with a small nail art brush and the rest of the nails I painted normally.

You guys, this Maybelline Bleached Neons – Coral Heat has got to be one of my favorite summer polishes! The formula was not the greatest, just like with the Sun Flare. You probably need 3-4 thin coats to get a full opacity. The color compensates the bad formula though ;) At the end I just added small, white polka dots with my dotting tool and a good layer of Seche Vite top coat.

Too added more girlishness to these girly nails, I added a bit of sparkle and put a cute bow on my thumb. The bow comes from the Born Pretty Store and you can find it HERE. I was so excited when I ordered it and I couldn’t wait for the package to come. What I didn’t realize was how big the bow was! I mean it looks a little bit outrages on my small nails and I don’t think it looks cute… The bow itself is super cute though and I wish it was a bit smaller! It’s sparkly and it’s full of gorgeous rhinestones. I might use it for something else, like decorating some cups or a phone case :) Also, for girls with bigger nails, it might work just fine!
