Last week’s International Nail Artist feature showed us some stunning Valentine’s Nails (Click Here if you Missed It) all the way from Germany. Today we travel to Scandinavia and have a special guest feature from DENMARK! Eva, or “Coewless” as many of you may know her from her Nail Polish Blog and Instagram, has brought us some incredibly beautiful galaxy nails to gawk at.
I first came across the insanely talented blogger when her stunning free handed Christmas Sweater nails designed to replicate her leggings were featured all over social media (a girl who uses fashion to inspire her nail art? yes please!). See the infamous sweater nails here. This design sparked a huge following by aspiring nail artists trying to replicate such a design. In fact, one of Nail That Accent’s previous international nail artist feature – Lieve91 re-created Eva’s design HERE and did a fabulous job as well.
Not only am I madly in awe of Eva’s incredible artistic talent when it comes to fine painted detail, I think it was Eva’s obsession with fun patterned leggings and her love of posting delicious looking meals from healthy salads to yogurt and berries to home-baked chocolate chip cookies, that really drew me in. Thanks for joining us today Eva, over to you!
I’m really excited to be a guest blogger for Nail That Accent’s International Nail Artist Feature.
I’ll start by telling you a little bit about myself. My name is Eva. I’m a 21 year old girl from the little lovely country of Denmark. In my free time I love to read and watch TV shows. My favorite book is Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, and my favorite TV show is Lost but my taste is pretty broad in both books and TV.
I obviously also love polishing my nails, and I spend MANY hours doing it. An advanced and super detailed mani can easily take an entire day to finish. When it comes to my nails, I am a bit of a perfectionist (who am I kidding, I’m pretty much always a perfectionist!) I am my own worst critic, I know that, but that’s only because I can always see what could have been better in my nail art.
I’ve been doing my nails for almost four years, since I started my blog in 2010. Back then it was just swatches and very basic nail art using polish and two way nail art pens, which I thought was the coolest thing. Imagine when I found out about nail art brushes and acrylic paint! It was just a totally new world, and I absolutely loved it. And still do.
I can’t draw on paper if my life depended on it. I do like to draw, but it does NOT look good. Therefore I really find pleasure in doing art on my nails. I find it weird that I can draw on my nails but not on paper. I really enjoy the process of doing nail art and sitting there with my tiny brush and perfecting it.
Lindsay asked me to do a manicure using my favorite polishes or techniques. I chose to do Galaxy nails. Galaxy nails are one my favorite types of manicures (and tribals of course – I have done many tribal/Aztec nails in the past!). I hadn’t done galaxy nails in a while, so I thought this was the perfect time.
For this design I used many different colors. My base is Chanel Taboo. I also used: Orly Lunar Eclipse, China Glaze Strap on your moonboots, IsaDora Dazzling Acqua, IsaDora Icy Lilas, China Glaze Fade into Hue, Illamasqua Stance and China Glaze Passion for Petals.
I would also like to point out, that I didn’t follow any “rules” when making these galaxy nails. I just very randomly sponged on the colors using a pair of tweezers to hold small pieces of a make-up sponge dabbed in polish. I didn’t really think much about where I placed the colors, only that the same colors had to be placed next to each other on each nail… If that makes sense 😀
Thanks to Lindsay for having me on her blog! 😀
Eva thank you so much for creating such an incredibly fabulous design. Your galaxy nails are stunning and another perfect manicure from you!
