Espeon nails…

ESPEON NAIL ARTESPEONESPEON NAILS 1ESPEON NAILSESPEON NAILS 2
Black: random cheap black nail varnish
Lilac: Barry M, berry ice cream (308)
Rhinestones: here

I have seen nail designs like this all over the place at the moment & have had no idea what they were actually called until a few days ago, ‘rim nails’, hmmm, not the nicest sounding name, I think maybe outline nails sounds a little better/nicer? Ah well, anyway, I wanted to try my hand at doing some ‘rim nails’ & this was my result. I didn’t actually plan on them looking anything like Espeon, it was only when I’d finished them that I noticed the resemblance ahaha.

The design itself was pretty straightforward, however, if you don’t have a steady hand, this may not be the design for you as you have to be quite careful when doing the outlines. I was planning on doing a video tutorial to show you all how I did it, what do you think? If you think you would find it helpful, let me know & I will get filming! :)

If you are a Pokémon freak like me, you will probably already know Espeon. If not you can read about them here. :) Eevee & it’s seven evolutions are my favourite Pokémon (you may have noticed my Eevee in my sidebar? ;) haha, I know I’m strange.) Ah well, #pokemon4lyf ;)

  9. I found it so cute that the nails are so similar to Espeon! Maybe you can do nails following different Pokemon colours! I don't have a steady hand, this rim nails look won't work for me! xx
