Models Own Nail Art Tool Kit Review + Love Letters Nail Art

Hey everyone! I've been having a few days break from blogging because I feel like most of the stuff I have waiting to show you is pretty low-par, and I just haven't been able to bring myself to edit something that I'm not particularly proud of. I've created a few nail art designs recently that I'm insanely proud of, but they wont be going up for a few weeks as they're work for companies etc. so I only have a few posts I did weeks ago before my exams. Once exams are over next week I hope to create lots and lots of awesome nail art, so I'm sorry if the designs I post this week aren't 100% great, sometimes ideas dont work out as great in my head as they do on my nails.

BUT I do like these nails, I'd completely forgotten I had them hiding away in my Models Own folder as I thought I'd posted everything during review week and I stumbled across them earlier and knew I finally had something worth posting. I was sent the Models Own Nail Art Tool Kit* a few weeks ago and I've actually been using it quite a lot. I used the flat brush for clean up on all my nail art. It came through my postbox at the perfect time in fact because my old one had fallen to pieces only the day before and I was all ready to purchase a new one.

For these nails I used the Detailing Brush, the Striping Brush and the Dotting Tool, along with the Flat Brush for clean up, all of which I was really impressed with. I did cut the detailing brush down a bit, as I always tend to, but otherwise I left them as they were.

The base for these nails was So Susan - Deep Space* (full review coming soon, just need to edit the photos!). Then I used Graffiti Nails - Ice White, using the striping brush, and Graffiti Nails - Jet for the hearts, using the dotting tool. Then I used acrylic paint and the detailing brush for the lettering.

You can find the tool kit here for £8 or in Boots for the same price

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I love your "LOVE" nail! That is so cute!

  2. Lovely... and to be honest, I am quite curious about those mani's you are hiding from us that you think are below par... I tend to publish all my mani's, because my blog is not about perfection but as an archive for my creations. I've noticed that mani's I am at first glance not extremely happy about actually get very lovely comments (often more than the mani's I adore myself).

  3. I was going to say basically everything Brethil just said! I don't enjoy working on a post for a mani that I don't like either. But I also tend to get more complements on those too. It makes me question my own taste sometimes. :P

  4. These nails are so cute! I cannot believe you did the Love nail using the brushes - it's so detailed! :)


I absolutely love to read all your comments, they make my day! So please do not hesitate to tell me what you think, but I ask that you don't link spam to your blog in your comment, thankyou so much everyone!
