  • SARA NAIL: Navy Nail Art, Navy Nail Polish

    Navy nail art Navy nail art Hey guys! So today I went to afternoon tea with my friend, Eun Hui and decided to fancy myself up a little, inspired by my gorgeous new navy nail art! :D I treated myself during the week. It’s a gorgeous navy blue with white lines and golden pearls, so last night at about midnight (when I still couldn’t sleep) I decided to navy up my nails to tie in with my jacket and outfit for this afternoon. Navy nail art Navy nail art I’m not quite flexible enough (or skinny enough) to easily reach my toes, so I don’t do much nail art on them however I was feeling the need (I guess I’m getting prepared for spring already). I used a navy blue for my base and then used white lines n golden pearls to add elegance to make the feeling of winter. Navy nail art Navy nail art This winter, I’ve been spotting beautiful women all around the city with navy nails, which look incredibly chic and elegant. Here, my friend Yun Jeong is wearing this polish . Thoughts? Will you wear navy nails this winter or for Christmas? Thanks for visiting!! xx Saranail

    Houndstooth nail art, Houndstooth nails tutorial, how to do Houndstooth nails Last week was my friend’s birthday week so I decided to treat myself to a set of these houndstooth nail effects. and my love for Houndstooth said YES! I have recorded a video of my initial reaction and application which I will attach. Also you will see pictures of the nails below. :) Houndstooth nails tutorial Houndstooth nails tutorial This is a tutorial & here it is! Houndstooth! Today I’ll show you a houndstooth nail art form Saranail. It’s a beautiful and elegant nail art, with a perfect nail for winter. I find it very difficult to find a good houndstooth nail art. its nail art made it very easy to be painted and applied. This is how it looks like without any different coats to apply. Then let’s check them out~!!~! Houndstooth nails tutorial Houndstooth nails tutorial 1) Paint your base coat(start by applying a base coat all the time). White is the first color, but you could use any color or mix of colors. Houndstooth nails tutorial Houndstooth nails tutorial 2) I painted white with 2 coats, or any other color you choose, and paint there following how to do houndstooth nail tutorial Houndstooth nails tutorial Houndstooth nails tutorial 3) put the water decal in a bowl filled with water with tweezers Houndstooth nails tutorial Houndstooth nails tutorial 4) then cut off the rest of the water decals applied on your nail Houndstooth nails tutorial Houndstooth nails tutorial 5) Fill in green color with 2 coats as shown.

Try to make lines as straight and sharp as possible. as well Houndstooth nails tutorial Houndstooth nails tutorial 7) It’s extremely helpful to look at a picture of the actual Houndstooth print while painting for reference. I think the key thing is to go back with your base color and fix any lines that need it. The problem most people have with painting Houndstooth is that the opposite color (white in this case) doesn’t really look like houndstooth nail art as shown.

You can also see another peach nail art with pearls below. :) The result: peachy ‘springy’ nails.. just what I was going for! I’ve been trying to find the perfect peach shade for a while now, there either too orange, too nude or too flat.

  • Audrey Hepburn Nail Art, “Audrey Hepburn” Inspired Nails

    Hey loves! I’m here to share with y’all a recent nail-art I did! This will be a relatively short post! I was inspired by Audrey Hepburn and I just released that I did Audrey Hepburn nails with Audrey’s face on it! And I think these are really appropriate! so here they are! I received Audrey Hepburn water decals from SaraNail – Like any other water decals, they are super easy to apply. This look took me 10 minutes in total. It probably would have taken less, but I included the amount of time it took for the nail polish to dry. This one in particular takes longer to dry compared to my other polishes. (due to the water decals) Maybe it’s because it’s textured? Who knows! Her Big Brows, Doe Eyes and Midi Bangs — She was a Star in an age that favored well-upholstered Blondes. Her timeless Beauty and Style will never go out of Fashion. (still now)

  • Nail Art Designs: Checkered Nail Art With SaraNail

    A very straight-forward nail art- black and red checks with pearls accents. Using red as the base, I drew the black checks on. As always, I love patterned nails, they look amazing in everyday use. The checkered nails were inspired by Sora Yoon who I believe is one of the excellent the nail artists at SARA academy. I think, in Korea this is one of the most common nail art as you can see the checkered nail arts. :) It could vary from simple or very basic to more sophisticated and complicated patterns that really looks good on your nails. This will be my version! :D I think after using red as the base, afterwards you would be better to make tiny flowers yellow nail paints to be polished and beautiful. :) I was thinking of doing checkered nail art in black and red today (*why dont you do black and red also for checkered nail art?) and ended up doing this. Best part of doing nail art is you can just go on and on with your wild creative mind and you have a new and a unique design ready in front of you.

  • Korean Cute Nail Art, How To Do Cute Nail Art In Korea

    I’m sorry, I know it’s been a while since my last post but I left for Busan last week and then I came back and I was quite busy! Anyway, many of you have asked me to write about manicures and beauty salon in Seoul. I usually get my nails done at Saranail Academy in Seoul Korea as nail artists there are very skilled and propose so many styles and colors. If you’ve been in Korea or any Asian countries before, you know that their manucure style is totally different than the one you guys have in Europe. What I mean by that is that here, they go for “nail art”. Now I’ll tell you first that I’m such a HARDCORE K-POP FANS!! Even though I’m only 1 year into K-Pop fans, but I’ve been very loved K-Pop so much like other Asian teens :). And like the others, of course I have the specific idols that I like. I’m not in to all Idols. Just a few of them that made me really fall in love. And of course I like Boy group more than Girl group because I’m a girl XD But because this blog is all about nails, and nails are identical with girls, so yeah.. I’m not gonna put Boy group here (shit). Just girl group that I really like the most. Yes I love them so much. They’r like my inspire. I like them not because of their beauty that could make anyone amazed, but because of their personalities. Their personalities which are unique, funny, innocent, honest, humble and not contrived that made me realize, however the term for idols when they’r on stage, they’r still human beings, just the same as people in general. I hope y’all are having a great day and I’ll talk to y’all later <3 Thanks for reading! SaraNail

  • Awesome Nail Art Designs In Seoul International Nail Fair 2013 In South Korea

    Held at Gangnam, in Seoul, Korea Seoul International Nail Fair featured some of the most amazing fingernail artworks. Apparently, the nail industry is getting big in Seoul right now, that’s why they’ve actually organized an exposition where nail artists could showcase their latest masterpieces. The Korean nail industry has grown over and over, so it’s no wonder this year’s event drew in a crowd of approximately over 10,000. I’m a big fan of painted, long nails and I have to admit other nail artworks presented at the Seoul International Nail Fair 2013 were pretty impressive.
