Madeline Poole inspired Nails

25th February, 2012 - Posted by Emily - 6 Comments

You have no idea how much I’ve been itching to post these! I did these about two weeks ago but as a few other blogposts had higher priority these were on hold in my queue! I really love how these look, it’s so unique and different.

These were as the title says, inspired by Madeline Poole. I don’t think this style of nails has an official name yet, there’s a few floating around but some of them are a bit racy haha. I had been dying to try these but my first attempt was somewhat unsuccessful, when I saw Madeline post her tutorial I thought I’d give these another go. The trick is to first do the outline and then paint the colour! Who’d have guessed?

I used a black striper and Essie Van D’Go, on the accent nails there’s 1.5mm silver studs by Born Pretty Store.

      Thanks Gwenn! I really love it too but it's not the easiest! I personally think it only suits oval shaped nails, I've seen a few girls with square nails do this and I didn't like it to be honest :( But that's my opinion of course!

      Hey Janessa! I used a striper polish with a thin brush! :)
