Guest Post - Julia Recreates Kayla Shevonne Nail Art Designs!

Hey guys!

So, as I wait for my nubbin nail to grow out, I've asked a few of my fellow polish friends/bloggers to write up some guest posts for my blog! I'm really excited about this as it's a way to keep content going while I'm out of commission (because I'm overdramatic about my broken nail), as well as a great way to introduce you to some of the people who inspire me on a daily basis.

Today's guest post is by the lovely Julia from Le Vernis. Julia is a Brazilian friend and fellow nail blogger and you can check out her blog here. But be sure to hit the translate button to read her posts in English!

In her post below, she's showing you a few nail art designs that she's done. But they're not just any designs, they're recreations of a few of my nail art designs! It's super flattering to see my designs recreated and I'm really excited to be able to share Julia's post with you here.


Hello polish friends!

First of all, I’d like to thank Kayla for inviting me to do a guest post! I’m so excited! Being asked to write a guest post is always an honor. But I have to admit I was a bit a lot nervous too. After all, this post appears on one of my favorite nail blogs → ♥ u Kayla (yes, I’m a groupie!).

As I’m a huge fan, I often attempt to do her great nail designs, so I thought it would be nice to show you how my copycat nails turned out, like a special tribute. I gathered a few of my best tries, but please keep in mind that they don't always come out quite as perfectly as I’d like, but I think it still looks pretty great!

The first one is actually my favorite! I did it last year during Halloween – using Kayla’s Vampire Bite tutorial and I even did Halloween makeup to go with it. I love it so much that it’s in my Top 15 of 2011!

Vampire Bite Nails: Ipanema (Panvel), Preto Fosco (Risqué) and Ruby Pumps (China Glaze).

The second nail art I was saving for the start of fall and it's inspired by this dark tree silhouette design. I thought – this is something I’m able to pull off (I’m still new in this nail art business) – and so I decided to give it a try and this is how it turned out:

Dark Tree Silhouette Nails: Stranger Tides (OPI) and Verde (Nubar).

And last but not least, I fell in love with this Two-Tone Swirly Holo NOTD and I just love the curly effect and the color combination! I love that it was done with two Brazilian great polishes, but in my version I ended up using two holos from the OMG Collection:

Two-Tone Swirly Holo Nails: L8RG8R (China Glaze), DV8 (China Glaze) and Preto Fosco (Risqué).

Kayla, Thanks again for the opportunity, I hope you and your readers will enjoy it!

Thanks for your lovely post Julia! I really enjoyed your interpretations of my nail art designs and I think you did an awesome job!

Your vampire bites turned out really well and I'm glad to see that my tutorial was helpful! I love how you added some sparkle to my dark trees design - it gives it some dimension that I think mine was lacking. I also love the colour choice you used for my two-tone swirly holo design.

Thanks once again and you're welcome back anytime to do another guest post!
