Naked blobs (you know you wanna look)

How you like that title?

Today's nail art came about when I decided I wanted to do something that involved some naked nail. I remembered really loving this version that Nailside did of her cloud design, and kind of went off of that. I wanted mine to be more random though, so I painted with gaps, painted from the sides, bottom... I wanted each nail to be different!


The grayish color is Color Club Revvvolution. I love it because it is a one coater polish -- super pigmented and incredibly easy to control.

The red sparkle is Zoya Sarah. ZOYA SARAH! The one that they named after me. I'm not usually super into reds but I do love this one. :)


All of the blobs were freehanded on and then I just cleaned up around the edges. It was really simple and fun to do. I just kind of relaxed and started painting whatever! I showed these to my roommate as well as some other nail enthusiasts and I got a lot of comments that they look like abstract hearts.


I really like the way that my thumb turned out, in particular. Kind of inwardly droopy like a curtain.


I think that if I were to do this again I might do more coming in from the sides instead of coming up from the bottom. I would also use more contrasting colors.

But I am super pleased with the way that this turned out, in general!


I love manicures that incorporate nude nail along with nail art. There's something so cool about it to me... like the nail art is floating over the nail.

  5. I always love nail art that allows some of the naked nail to peek through...I'm not sure why, but it looks so cool! That was the idea I had when I did some polka dots recently...I love your design and need to try it!

  9. That was one of the dirtiest titles I have ever seen. Or my mind is just dirty :)

    I like these! Really interesting look! When I looked from far away I was concerned that they might look like cuts but they really don't! Very cool look!

  24. I like nail art with a naked nail underneath. Wish I could do it on my own nails, but they're too yellow xD I actually thought too these were hearts :)

  27. This is honestly so so so so pretty! I love it! :)

  28. WOW - this is great! Love the colors you picked - they are favs of mine and really look good together. Love that you did this on a nude nail.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love nude nails... but it seems that if I use only clear, base coat or not, it wants to peel in the clear parts. Any particular base you use that is sticky?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Fun! I do like how the nail art "floats" on the nail with the clear parts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Very pretty polish! I need to try this some time. =]
