Paisley nails with grey stripes

They say white nail polish trend is on its way, so I’d love to show you a pure white shade from Lumene Natural Code line. The polish is called Have Fun. To make the manicure even more fun, I added some stripes, flowers and dots – these all included in a paisley pattern.

The pictures here show 3 coats of Lumene Have Fun over a clear base. The polish is plain white, nothing really special about it, but still it’s a useful color for nail art, and it’s a good base for other effects. The formula is ok, though the application is streaky (which is a common thing with white cremes). I needed 3 coats to make the coverage opaque.

Lumene Have fun #2 white polish

For the design I used Orly Basket Case (a pink creme), OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! (a dark grey creme) and OPI 20 Candles on My Cake (muted brick red color). Dots are done with a dotting tool, all the rest is painted with a nail art brush.

I didn’t top coat the design, because I liked a bit matte effect I got (Lumene Have Fun turned out to be not that glossy), and I thought the matte look would match the subtle design idea :)
Thank you for reading! xxx

      Yes.. Recently I’ve been finishing each design with a glossy top, so I thought its time to change that :)

      Hello, Simona :) I’m glad you like it :)

  8. 3 coats seem to be the regular thing for whites, I like what you did on it :)

    1. Mari says: Reply

      yes, you are right :) sometimes they are less streaky, sometimes more, but 3 coats is a must for many white cremes.. I’m glad you like the design :)

  9. This is gorgeous!!! I love it!

      :D thank you!

  10. A white creme called “Have Fun”? Ughm, sometimes I wish I could get the logic of the nail polish producers.. : {
    But the mani you created IS fun though!! I will always adore your free hand nail art skills :)

      lol Yes, that’s a very questionable name for a white creme! The only explanation I can think of is that they meant this plain white to be used in nail art :)

  11. This is so cute & fun. Its something to wear to a picnic! :)
