Pretty Painted Pinwheels

Hi there guys!! See what I did with the title? Pretty is debatable but I do like these. Chelsea Queen put up a video on her instagram on how to do pinwheel nails and I was there. By the way I love her nail art and I need to try her florals, I need to try everyone's floral. It's a shame I'm not very good at floral nail art :/ I would abuse that shizz.

I love the way pinwheels look, expect many more. Ok yes I messed up my segments cause I was doing this any old how then I realised when you use 3 colours you kind of need 3 segments of each colour. Total I had 8 instead of 9 -_- I made it work though!! You see how neatly Chelsea painted hers, well mine was not like that at the start. I neatened it bit by bit during the painting process. I definitely wanted glitter packed sections and Barry M Amethyst was so perfect. Glitter packed things are awesome.

Sorry about my cuticles, there's a reason why you haven't been seeing this hand. I healed 2 cuts but then I got another one -_- Go editing magic
The glitter was very rough though, 2 coats of topcoat and a coat of matte topcoat and you can still feel the glitter in some parts. I love matte manicures, but I think the Rimmel matte topcoat isn't completely matte, more satin matte. But it's cheap so it's ok. The section sizes was a bit trial and error but it came together in the end.

Purple: Barry M - Prickly Pear
Prickly Pear is such a gorgeous colour!! I just love it!! It's also so shiny (I'd hope so with a line called "hi-shine").
Pink: Barry M - Fuchsia and Color Club - Wing Fling
Glitter: Barry M - Amethyst

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day!! :)


  1. I think you did great and I liked your colors way better than hers. :D

    1. Thank you very much!! And though I also liked Chelsea's colour scheme, the pink/purple/crazy glitter combo is really great :D

  2. Oh that's another great way to make full use of all my sadly-hardly-ever-used glitters! Definitely have to give pinwheels a try soon! Hehe, I love your whacky colours btw! Reminds me of quirky Tim Burton's style! :D Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration! ♥

    1. Totally agree, I'll be doing pinwheels too to make use of my glitters too!! I'm always up for a girly colour combo :P No problem, too glad to be inspiration!! :D
