I ♥ NY Nail Art!

Hello everyone! Ok it's been a week since we got home from the USA. My house is a mess, my suitcase is unpacked but the contents are lying all over my spare bed, and I'm coming down with a cold but I have time for some I <3 NY nail art ;-)

Simple but well known! I used OPI Alpine Snow as the white base, Illamasqua Boosh as the black and Illamasqua Throb as the red heart.

This small cup was my inspiration. Funnily enough I did not buy this on my NY trip last month but a friend gave it to me a couple of years ago.

I did however buy this pencil that comes with a big heart topper :-P

And of course an I love NY post wouldn't be complete without some arty iPhone pics. I have so many but it's almost midnight and I got up at 6am @_@ I shall just find a few.

Toys R Us. Same say better that FAO Schwartz but I don't know...

Central Park. So huge I think you need at *least* a week to explore it all!

View of the Brooklyn Bridge from South Street Seaport mall.

Grand Central Station!

Salty pretzel goodness @_@

View from top of the rock!

Random subway shot :-P

Well that's all I have for now my lovelies. I hope you are having a fantastic weekend and I shall see you all next time!


  1. heey! love ur nail art ;) so creative <3
    could u pls tell me how do u do the frames of your pics, they look cool! can u help me pls ;) thnx

  2. OMG I love this!! I need to do this, especially since I live in NY and love it. What a great idea. It looks great on you... hey, I bet I <3 NY nail decals would sell well, haha. I'm not a fan of white on me though so maybe I'd do a tan or light blue base... hmmm...


  3. Cool as always. Awesome NY pics - Hope you don't get the post holiday blues - It always happens to me until I book the next one!

  4. This is so well done :D I love it, it looks amazing :)

  5. I think this is super cute, nice and simple but a real statement mani!

    Just popped by your blog after googling a photo I saw on tumblr. Absolutely adore your chococat mani.

    I'm just starting out with nail art and a new blog. Your blog is a real inspiration!

  6. I'm originally from NY and this is hilarious! Saw this ALL the time! Very nice, am a new follower!

  7. @first comment - hey thanks! Do you mean the arty jagged border look? It's done using hipstamatic on iPhone. Very cool app!

    @super cute super easy - thank you so much!

    @Maria - thank you lovely! I also have a pink cup with I <3 NY which looks great as well if you decide to go that way ;-)

    @Veronica - aww thank you!

    @Vita - thanks Vita! Luckily for me I'm too tired to think about anymore holidays... maybe again 2014 :-D

    @All the pretty polish - thanks! I put a lot of effort into this one, it was surprisingly difficult!

    @JJ - oh my gosh thank you! comments like that make it even more worth it ;-)

    @Fingers - No doubt! I did google it inbetween painting letters and I saw a lot of variations, lots of cool stuff out there. Love meeting new followers :-) I offer you a very warm welcome!

  8. Ohh, I have to try this!! Sadly this requires precision ... am I right? And someone else will definitely have to do my right hand nails ☺

  9. Not too much precision required if you're prepared to clean up the edges with your base paint! That's what I did :-P
