London nail art

Around the World Challenge: 8 – London

London. My home town! And this time next week I’ll be in London (or I’ll have spent a day there and then be on my way to Brighton where I’ll be working this summer)

I wasn’t sure what to do for London nail art. There are so many things that are iconic about London and I know the city so much better than any of the others on the list, so it was really hard to decide. I was going to go with a transport theme (red bus, black taxi, underground…) but liked the bus I had done and decided to do it on all of my nails.

This is the first time I have done a design almost entirely in acrylic paint. I mainly decided to do it because I didn’t have a red which would dry well – my red polish are all really slow dryers and almost always bleed when I top coat them ruining everything… It was different using acrylic but I quite enjoyed it and was pleased how any of the streakiness or unevenness completely disappeared when I top coated them.


I used: The Thames – Nails Inc, red, yellow, black and white acrylic paints.
