Crazy nail art!

3 Jul

Check out these garishly gorgeous nails, which belong to my super creative and highly talented pal Heledd Jones.

Heledd has always been an arty creature (she won the BBC Blast Scrap Fashion Competition back in 2007) so it came as no surprise to me when I found out she designed these badboys herself.

Yes they’re gaudy and completely impractical, but who cares? I WANT THEM!

“I love nail art because they’re tiny, exciting snippets of art,” says Heledd. “Instead of painting a canvas and putting it on a wall, I paint my nails about twice a week and don’t have enough time to get bored of them!”

Fancy recreating Heledd’s nail art? Then follow these five simple steps…

1. Apply a basecoat to your nails.

2. Apply a coat of white nail varnish to each fingernail.

3. Apply a second layer of white nail varnish to just one nail.

4. Using tweezers, place the beads onto the freshly painted nail  straight away. Repeat step 3 & 4 on each individual nail.

4. Lastly, apply a gloopy layer of top coat to each nail, making sure to go cover the beads so that they stay in place.

Yesterface fact: Nail art can be traced back to 5000 BC in India, where women dyed their fingertips with henna. To find out more about the history of nail art, visit refinery29.com
