Earth Day Nail Art

42 comments

Hiya guys, how's it going today? If you didn't know tomorrow is Earth Day! I really wanted to do some nail art for the occasion, especially after seeing the Zoya Earth Day promo I posted about earlier. Now today's nail art is inspired by the lovely Quirky Lacquerista, definitely go pay her a visit if you are unfamiliar with her work. But now let's take a look at the mani!

Earth Day Nail Art

What do you guys think? I am so psyched about the way it turned out and best of all it was super simple to create. It's very abstract and it's really one of those manis that you cannot 'mess' up.

Earth Day Nail Art

Here's the materials used to create this look:
  • Zoya: Ryan, Ling, Blu, Rocky, and Tilda
  • China Glaze Fairy Dust
  • Makeup Sponge 
  • Seche Vite Topcoat

In honor of the Zoya Earth Day Promo, I decided to whip out all of my best Zoya blues (and my favorite bright green) for this mani. I didn't make a video, but if it's something that you would like just let me know down in the comments.

The mani was created in the same manner that you would create a galaxy design. I started off by painting my nails with a dark blue, in this case Zoya's Ryan. Using a few pieces of makeup sponges, I dabbed on one color at a time in random patterns. I rotated through the colors to make sure they blended well and also made sure to enough green amongst all the blue.

Adding China Glaze Fairydust over the mani was a last second decision before taking the photos, but I loved the effect it added. As always, fairydust makes everything better!

  1. Those are absolutely adorable! Can you come over and do my nails? Lol I am beyond horrible at painting my own, and would never be able to pull off that sponging technique without a total mess (literally) on my hands.

    1. Thank you :) I'm sure you wouldn't make a mess and even if you did I'm sure it would still look good, that's the fun thing about abstract.

  12. Wow, those are some really cool nails! I have tried everything, from no chip to nail wraps, and nothing seems to stay on this busy mom's nails. I can't wait until I can relax and get a well deserved and stylish mani/pedi!
