Nail art threesome: One Nail to Rule Them All

Alice of One Nail to Rule Them All and Allie of Brit Nails and I have had a Whatsapp conversation going for years now. They’ve kept me sane when blogging (and non-blogging life) has been driving me up the wall. They’re a great sounding board, and wonderful friends. So who better to have a threesome with? A nail art threesome that is.

First up, I’m replicating Alice’s galaxy hearts, which handily enough she also created a tutorial for! Now, this wasn’t the first design of Alice’s I tried. I also attempted her stone marble, which might have been foolish on my part considering my hatred of water marbling. The trial attempt on the wrong hand went perfectly and I was feeling confident. The two attempts on the presentable hand, however, not so good. Thankfully Alice has a buttload of nail art under her belt so there were plenty of others to choose from! Allie, Alice and I are all regular bloggers for Barry M so it seemed fitting to do this exclusively using Barry M polishes.

I’m not too unhappy with these, considering it involves a bit of hand painting with the heart shape, which I’m not fabulous at. They could have done with being a bit brighter, but I think the effect is there nonetheless.

Make sure you check out Alice and Allie and see who’s done what in this threesome, and check back on Monday for the second instalment from all three of us too!

    You did SO well recreating these, I’d never have been brave enough to take this on, I have zero patience with freehanding anything. They’re so incredibly shiny too :D
