Arrowheads patterned nail art with TUTORIAL & French Connection ring

Hello lovelies,

I've recently fell in love with recreating Zentangle® patterns on my nails and this is the third manicure of this type I'm showing you. I again have a simple tutorial! If you've missed the previous manicure with Jonqual pattern, check it out HERE.

So for this manicure I have used A England She Walks In Beauty as a base colour and black acrylic paint. It is much easire to work with acrylic paint if you're doing more elaborate designs. Nail polish gets thick and gloopy very fast and you'd just waste a lot of it. I have sealed the design with topcoat but I should have used two coats of topcoats as the camera picked up not completely smooth surface.

Lucy's Stash - Arrowheads patterned nail art Tutorial



Oh and what ring am I wearing? It's beautiful, isn't it? I love how it changes colours depending on an angle so I took more pics for you. It's French Connection ring and I got it from Zalando.co.uk along with some other rings that I'll show you in the future. They have so many pretty things there, I got some hand creams and scrubs from their beauty section as well...but I'll review them later.
