Fair Isle Nail Art

Hi everyone! Today I have some medicore nail art to show you, I had grandiose plans for this and turned out to be really "meh," but that's okay, I like practicing free hand nail art. Recently at work more and more Fair Isle print has been popping up, in socks, sweaters, scarves, you name it. I think it's a very pretty style and wanted to replicate it onto my nails. Unfortunately, it's also very tricky.
On my pointer finger,  I used OPI I Don't Give a Rotterdam and OPI Skyfall, on my middle finger I used OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!, and OPI Thanks a Windmillion, on my ring finger I used OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh, and China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. My pinky finger was done using OPI A Grape Fit, and Zoya Megan.

I think my index finger is my favourite so far as the execution of nail art, but my favourite colours are on the middle and ring fingers.

Do you think it's worth it to try this technique again, with a little more patience? 


  1. I'm sorry you think its "meh". It totally jumped out at me in my reader. i think it's a very creative and lovely idea and it looks great!

  2. But, I totally understand something not turning out how you envisioned. :)

  3. Lol wearing an AE fair isle sweater as I read this. MISS YOU.
