Nail Art with Xroma Nail Vinyls - Part 2

On to Part 2 of my marathon of nail art using the amazing nail vinyls by Xroma Polish and Vinyls. If you missed Part 1 or want to re-fresh your memory, you can check out that post HERE.

Bricks - The classic brick wall pattern.

For this design I went with the look of a traditional red brick wall. I used "Don't Pretzel My Buttons" and "Just A Little Rosti At This" both by O.P.I.

Water Marble - Why actually water marble when you can use a nail vinyl instead?!

The best part about this nail vinyl is that it allows a little more flexibility in the design and how its used. For my first design I created a gradient with 2 prototype polishes from Miss Priss Polish and then used "Pink Friday" by O.P.I. over the top.

For my second design I went with an accent nail. I used "Sky" by Picture Polish along with "Lost In Paradise" by Emily de Molly. This one looked so much better in the sunlight, but I missed getting a photo of it before the sun went down.

X - One of my all time favourite designs.

I started with a neon gradient using "Franki" (pink), "Coral-Lee" (orange), "Charlee" (yellow), "Waverly" (green), and "Lahni" (blue) all by EP Polish, over a white base of "Snow Me White" by Sinful Colours. I then used "Raven" by Jamberry with the vinyls to create the X's over the top of the gradient.

The X design also looks great as an accent nail! This nail vinyl also has an added bonus. It is one of the ones that has the added bonus of being able to use the cut outs as well as the vinyl itself. For my accent nail I used the X nail vinyl. On my other nails I used the V cut outs.  For the base colour I used "Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" by Miss Priss Polish. The purple is then "Wisteria" by Picture Polish.

Fleur De Lis - I was really impressed at how this design turned out considering how detailed and small the design was.

For this manicure I used "LokoDom" and "Bonkers" by Picture Polish. I love how this turned out!

Moroccan Mixer - Something a little more fancy than the Moroccan design.

For this design I used "My Vampire Is Buff" by O.P.I. with "Bonkers" by Picture Polish.

Psychedelic - A cool and crazy design.

For a design name like psychedelic I couldn't simply use just two colours! For the base I used "Friday Night Festival" by Miss Priss Polish. I then filled in the design using "Mellow Yellow" (yellow), "Fairy Floss" (pink), "Wisteria" (purple), "Sky" (blue), and "Tiffany" (mint green) by Picture Polish.

The psychedelic name of this vinyl design made me think that I needed to incorporate neon polishes into my nail art.  I still couldn't use just one colour! I used "Snow Me White" by Sinful Colours for my base, and then while that was drying I went in search of some neon colours that I hadn't used in awhile... "Lemon Meringue" (yellow), "Apple Mint" (green), "Blueberry Pie" (blue), "Sweet Peach" (orange), and "Berry Parfait" (pink) by Glam Polish, from memory these shades were exclusives to Mei Mei's Signatures ages ago.
