Lavender Lemon Nails

OPI Can't Find My Czechbook, Kester Black French Lavender, Seed Lemon, BYS Black Striper

I saw a manicure on Pinterest recently and tracked it back to SuPa Nails (while we're on the subject of Pinterest, I hate it when people pin without links back to the source. So annoying!) Susanne is a nail art wizard and the second I saw this manicure I knew I had to have it on my nails. Can't Find My Czechbook and French Lavender were already sitting out on my desk and all of a sudden my nails were like this! Well, a good while later they looked like this. Seriously, this was super tricky and it just goes to show how talented someone like Susanne is! First I tried creating the diamonds with tape, but with four colours and not ever waiting long enough for the polish to dry it did not go well. I ended up (painstakingly) hand painting the diamonds with a nail art brush. I definitely need to practice my brush skills, so I'm sure this kind of mani will be popping up on my nails a lot over the next couple of months. 


  1. Wow yeah I can see the trouble in this manicure, specially for someone who's not at ease with freehanding straight lines (and I am talking about me here, 'cuz yours came out very good!)!

  2. This did take me a shameful amount of time to do! The corners are the trickiest. Evil little pointy corners.

  3. These looks great! I really need to practice my free handing skills too, meh haha

  4. These are beautiful :) Great color combo!
