Blush Nails 


Did you know you can do your nails with the blusher you use for your face? Blush nail, known as “cheek nail” (치크네일) in Korean, shows off a simple but cute design of a diffused spot in the centre of each nail, that perfectly mimics blushed cheeks. It can be created using your actual blusher or even eye shadow, and of course, nail polish. Often accompanied by pastel coloured french tips, such as sky blue, it gives off a more elevated look. It’s a simple design but gives such a cute and delicate look. This is definitely my next go-to nail design as we’re going into spring!

Taking over the Korean nail scene, resembling a delicious and jiggly dessert, jelly nails! A transparent and subtle look, it’s the perfect simple way to revamp your nails! Which is why it’s also called Syrup Nails in Korea for it’s translucent colours 🍯 Try out the Rom&nd Mood Pebble Nail in #02 Rosy Syrup to get the perfect shade of muted rose to match all the blooming flowers of spring.
