Floating nail art

Hello there! I am not sure if you have heard, but according to the latest fashion magazines floating nail art is the next big thing for Spring/Summer 2014. I am not big on following fashion (whoops, the ridiculously pink coat in my closet hints that I might a little :P) but I do like to try out latest nail trends, so here is my version of floating nail art.

I started off with just Nail Envy as a base, I was planning to add some sheer nude base colour but I forgot! lol :P For the floating blocks I used Zoya Robyn (blue), Nails Inc. Lowndes Square (purple), Seche Pretty Little Heartbreaker (pink), Sally Hansen Barely Blue Bell (teal) and Sally Hansen Yellow Kitty (yellow).

I polished the borders using black acrylic paint and a nail art brush. It was extremely hard to get the lines straight, I didn’t even bother my right hand :P I topped it all up with Poshe top coat.

I think I need a bit longer to get used to the floating nail art trend, I do like the idea but I the blocks are just not doing it for me. Maybe next time I’ll try something more feminine such as flowers or hearts :P

    These colours look great together! I saw a post about floating nail art the other week, I quite like the idea and have already tried out some designs on my nails too! I think the combinations are endless and your squares work really well, especially with the black outlines! Great design! :)

    I love both the floating effect and the blocks! This is the first I've heard of floating nail art, but I'm definitely adding it to my *nails to do* list!

    This looks quite effective – I did it once with leopard print and it looked really effective so maybe I’m beating fashion?? ;-)

    Love this, the colours used for the blocks are all gorgeous and go really well together. It reminds me of some sort of computer game like tetris! x
