Lana Del Rey Nails

Unless you have been living under a rock, you will know who Lana Del Rey is. She is the hottest new artist taking the charts by storm with her beautiful and unique voice. She has a real vintage look and reminds me of Nancy Sinatra who I love.

I really adore this girl so thought I would do a nail art tutorial based on the nail look she tends to stick to. She has super long nails but they might not be too realistic in the real world, so I created the look on my own shorter nails. This look can really be applied to any length and it actual makes you nails look longer if you have shorter nails.

This is easy enough to recreate, firstly paint your entire nail in a nude shade, I went with Essence - Hazelnut Cream Pie. When this had dried I paint two flicks creating a point in Barry M - Raspberry. Once again, wait for this to dry then with a steady hand paint a thin gold line border, I used Barry M - Foil.

There you have it, complete in just three simple steps so this wont take too long to do. Both Essence and Barry M products are very inexpensive, but if you don't have these colours you could try this look with other colours, perhaps pinks and greens for Summer or pastel shades which are very on trend at the moment.

Hope you like the finished look. I always like to see your versions so leave your comments here, on my facebook page 'Mysecretpenny'  or my twitter @mysecretpenny .

    Is it available now in England too? I thought we have essence only here in Germany. :D
