5 simple, fresh nail art designs that you can do at home – (part one)

Nail art is something everybody can do at home. And it doesn’t have to be super complicated to be effective. We love the dreamy designs by Seika of Line Spa & Polish in Vancouver and are so excited to share our collaboration with you. She has created some simple but swoon-worthy nail art designs exclusively for us using some of our most loved colours. Read on for all the Line Spa & Polish x Sienna nail art inspiration!

Before we begin

It’s best to have everything you need close to hand before you start, just as if you would if you were giving yourself a straight-up mani. You can read all about our DIY manicure tips here. As ever, for all these designs we recommend starting with a protective base coat to give you a smooth surface to paint on and finishing with a top coat to seal the deal and keep all your fabulous nail art locked in. Also, who loves a high-gloss finish? Everyone, that’s who. One final tip: We know this sounds obvious, but the key to all these designs is to make sure each layer dries before you apply the next. Alright! Let’s do this thing!

1. Blue line ombre

Colours: Dream, Breeze, Wategos

Are you dreaming of blues? Us too. This sweet nail art design is as straightforward as it looks.

  • Start with Wategos (clear blue water crème) and paint a line down the centre of each nail, as per the picture.
  • Paint over the top two thirds in Dream (periwinkle crème).
  • Finally, apply Breeze (mid-tone aqua crème). on the top third.

Your nails look so fresh! You clever thing, you.

2. Minimalist dots

Colours: Calm, Winter, Bonsoir, Merlot

Did somebody say ‘transeasonal’? This design is deceptively straightforward. We won’t tell anyone how easy it is if you don’t.

  • Apply a base of Calm (warm clay crème) to every nail.
  • Paint a line of Winter (bright white crème) on the left side of your thumb and ring fingernail, as per the picture.
  • Use the brush (or a bobby pin!) to drop a small dot of Bonsoir and Merlot (deep navy crème with a cerulean shimmer and deep red wine merlot crème) on the same two nails.

Hot tip: make sure the dots are dry before painting the top coat or it may ‘drag’ the colour. The dots are thicker than the coats of polish so they take a touch longer.

Yes, it’s really that easy. This is such a flexible look. Mix it up and choose your favourite contrasting colour for the two dots.

3. Pastel Leopard

Colours: Lily, Mimosa, Fleur, Wategos

Leopards have been known to purr when they are happy. You will too when you see how your nails look. This is such a fun, warm weather look.

  • Paint your middle finger with Mimosa (pale yellow crème).
  • On the other four nails, use the brush (or bobby pin) to pain three-four dots in Lily (lavender crème).
  • Next, use the same technique to create one-two dots of Wategos (clear water blue crème).
  • Finish up with two dots of Fleur (blushing bride pink crème).

Hot tip: when painting dots with your brush make sure to have a tiny amount of polish on the brush as it will pool on the nail. It’s easier to add more than take it off!

4. Brush strokes

Colours: Florence, Liberty, Calm

Painterly strokes are having such a moment in nail art at the moment and the technique is totally achievable at home. Get your paintbrushes at the ready! (No, really).

  • Apply a base coat
  • Paint a coat of Calm (warm clay crème) on your thumb and ring finger.
  • Apply small brushstrokes of Florence (magenta plum crème) for a painterly effect on the other three fingers. You can use a paintbrush here, if you prefer.
  • Apply another small brushstroke of Calm.
  • Finally, add a smear of Liberty (Woodrose grey crystal) for the finishing touch.

Voila! You have achieved nail art glory.

Tip: Make sure to use just a tiny amount of polish when you paint the brush stroke accents.

5. Balloon French

Colours: Hope, Artisan, Courage

This design brings together our sheer white crème, Hope, with two of our favourites from our collection of Autumn/Winter hues: Artisan (deep mustard crème) and Courage (warm terracotta crème).

  • Paint a curved line on every nail to create the balloon shape and fill in with Hope.
  • Use your nail brush to create a curved line over the top quarter of the nail on your middle and ring fingers in Courage. Then fill it in.
  • On the other side of the nail, repeat the process with Artisan, overlapping the part of the nail painted with Courage.

If you’re not confident drawing freehand, try using French tip stickers to help guide your brush. We have even heard of people using round stationery stickers to get the curve just right. Either way, the whole look is just so chic. We love it.

Manicure tips Fleur Sienna nail polish

10 tips to maximise the life of your manicure

Who loves a fresh-looking manicure? *raises hand* Everyone! If you followed our recent guide to a non-toxic manicure at home, your nails should be looking pretty good right about now. And while nail polish isn’t supposed to last forever – and that’s a good thing – there are some tips and tricks to keep your nails healthy and your manicure looking good for longer.

Read on for our tips to avoiding any mani-misadventures.

1. Shape your nails in one direction

 

We know you’ve heard it before, but it’s always good to have a reminder. When you are shaping your nails, file in one direction and avoid sawing back and forth. Another good tip is to hold the file flat against the nail tip. If you angle the file, you can thin the nail tip.

2. Hydrate your nails and cuticles

 

You wouldn’t dream of skipping out the door without moisturiser on your face, but we often forget that our nails and cuticles need hydration too. Dry, dehydrated nails are more likely to peel and split, and that gorgeous polish you spent Saturday afternoon applying may not make it to #ManiMonday unscathed. Grab a hand cream and some cuticle oil and apply frequently to keep your hands looking and feeling their best. This is especially important if you are in a cold climate.

3. Say goodbye to personal care products with a high concentration of alcohol

 

Hand sanitizer may kill germs, but it can also kill your manicure. The high- percentage of alcohol in hand sanitizer eats away at the topcoat and causes the polish to become dull and fade. Hairspray and perfume will have the same effect as hand sanitiser, and are not your friends when it comes to maximising the life of your manicure.

4. Wear gloves

 

No one likes chores but they are a necessary evil for most of us. Sigh. But did you know that chores are also responsible for shortening the life of your manicure too? Water gets into the nail bed causing the nail polish to become unstuck and lift. It’s a lovely thing, water. But it’s just not conducive to a long- lasting manicure. Protect your mani and your hands by wearing gloves if you are washing dishes, cleaning bathrooms or loading and unloading dishwashers.

5. Roll the bottle

 

It’s so tempting to shake a bottle of nail polish before a manicure. But resist! When you shake a bottle of polish you can create air bubbles and if they pop they will make a hole in your manicure. Roll the bottle between your hands instead. It’s still satisfying, we promise.

Manicure tips Base coat and Top Coat Sienna Byron Bay

6. Base Coat

Base coats keep your nails strong and create a smooth surface for applying polish which, as we all know now, prolongs the life of your manicure. Base coat is designed to stick to your nail bed and differs from a top coat, which is designed to stick to lacquer.

 

7. Top up your top coat

Some people swear by topping up their top coat every second day to keep the shine high and the colour intact. Yes, it’s still a teeny-tiny bit maintenance, but if it’s going to keep your manicure looking beautiful longer.

8. Seal the deal with a side swipe

 

Finish your top coat with a horizontal swipe at the tip of your nail to seal the top coat and protect your gorgeous manicure.

9. Drying time

 

While nail polish can be touch dry in a few minutes, it takes a bit longer for it to cure completely. We recommend painting them just before you go to bed or a Netflix marathon. That way they will have a good chance to dry and harden completely while your hands aren’t busy.

10. BYO Polish to the nail salon

 

A hot tip for the nail bar aficionados: if you have a polish you love and you know works for you, take it with you to the nail bar. A professional application of your favourite product will you give you a mani that lasts for ages. A great nail tech will also clean up your nails and keep them looking chic.

We hope you enjoyed our 10 tips and they help with your manicure.

Easy steps to a non-toxic manicure at home

In this crazy, busy world, a perfect manicure can make you feel like a total BOSS. We can’t always have our nails done professionally but thankfully, this is something we can do at home. Put your phone away, hit play on some soothing spa music, and follow our steps to give yourself a nurturing manicure at home.

What you need

 

Get everything together before you start.

You need:

Sienna Manicure products nail care

1. Remove old polish

 

If you have any residual polish left on your nails from an old manicure, now is the time to wipe it off using a non-acetone remover or wipes. Tempting as it is to just brush over the top of your old polish with the new colour, give your nails the chance to shine by starting with a clean base. Wash your hands and dry them thoroughly, focussing closely on the nails.

2. Shape your nails

 

Use a nail file to shape your nails. Sawing your nails back and forth will destroy the nail matrix which, frankly, sounds terrible. This means your nails will split, resulting in peeling and breakage. File outside to in and stick with it. Healthy nails are beautiful nails.

3. Apply a base coat

 

A great base coat will protect your nails while creating a smooth surface to apply your polish. It will also prolong the life of your manicure. Clever base coat!

HOT TIP: Base coat holds your nail together too so if you have soft nails, it’s perfect to make them strong. It’s also the product to use if you like a nude nail, it goes on clear and gives them a high shine!

4. Apply your nail polish like a pro

 

We are heading towards the business end of your manicure now as we apply the nail polish colour. We are aiming for two coats here. The best way to achieve the perfect coat is to get a decent size bead of polish on your brush and then as you pull it out of the bottle, wipe it away from one side only. Now, land the brush with a drop of polish in the centre of your nail. Gently do three strokes; one in the centre from the base to the tip, one on the left and one on the right and voila! You have achieved nail polish glory.

HOT TIP: Make your first coat thin and load up your second coat for full coverage. If you need to do a third coat that’s totally fine!

 

Pro tip

You don’t need to push the polish right down to meet the cuticle. Leave a teeny tiny gap to make sure you don’t ‘flood’ the cuticle area with polish which is a short cut to a gloopy finish. No one likes a gloopy finish, and your eye will not be able to tell the difference anyway.

5. Finish with a top coat

 

Seal the deal with a clear top coat. Repeat the three strokes technique, but finish with a sideways swipe of top coat at the tip of the nail to seal the top coat and protect your gorgeous manicure. As well as giving shine for days, top coat stops your polish from chipping early.

Sienna-top-coat-hand-photo

6. Cuticle oil is like kindness

 

You know what they say: “Cuticle oil is like kindness. Sprinkle it around everywhere”. We’re not sure if they really say that… but they should. Cuticle oil will give your nails instant salon-look realness and major hydration. If you do accidentally knock your nails before your polish has hardened, (we’ve all been there), the oil provides a little slip so they’re less likely to nick.

Take a moment

 

Now is a good time to just sit still. You can’t do much while you wait for your nail polish to dry anyway, so take the time and luxuriate for a few blissful minutes. Listen to some music or a podcast, or simply do nothing. Life moves pretty fast and taking a moment to do your nails can double as precious quiet time. So go on. You deserve it.

non toxic nail polish

Nail polish, Acrylic, Gel explained

What is the difference between non-toxic nail polish, regular nail polish, gel, shellac and acrylic?

Acrylics

the most artificial of them all and more of a ‘nail enhancement’ than a polish. It is a substance that is balled up, placed on the nail then worked out to form a ‘nail shape’. You can identify acrylics by the way the nail looks raised. To remove you need an electric file which can grind back your natural nail, resulting in extensive damage.

 

Shellac

is actually a brand name! Shellac is actually Gel polish.

 

Gel

Oh Gels. I WISH I could make a non-toxic gel (It needs certain ‘toxic’ ingredients to make it last like it does). They’re the most similar to a normal polish but with extra wear (if you apply them right). They apply like a normal polish but are usually cured under a UV lamp and your nails need to be SOAKED in acetone to remove it. Don’t pick at it because it gets so deeply embedded in your nail (think the top few micro layers) that you will pull your nail off with it.

 

Regular nail polish

These are your classic polishes like your Revlon’s and OPI’s. They’re usually long standing brands but the problem is their formulas (and ethics) are stuck in the dark ages. They contain many of the ingredients that modern users are trying to avoid whilst not giving any longer wear than non-toxic ones. Another thing to note is they and are often not cruelty free or vegan as they are more of the ‘mass market’ brand and sell wholesale to countries like China.

 

Non-toxic polish

Yay! The best of the bunch. Not only are these not damaging to your nail bed but they come without the harsh ingredients that we’re ALL trying to avoid. They’re often produced by smaller companies (like us!) so you have greater capacity to ask questions and develop the trust needed to use these brands.

Helena Nail Polish

If you’re using acrylics or gels but you want to try going for a natural nail it will take approx. 3-6 months for your nail bed to grow out and look natural. I have seen many people with damage that lasts long beyond the 6 month mark! Your nails should recover eventually but it does take a long time so it’s best to avoid them altogether.

 

And remember: the stronger the polish, the more unnatural the ingredients and the more intense they have to be.

7-free, 10-free, 12-free nail polish explained

The ‘10-free 12-free’ branding on nail polish was initially developed to show customers the ‘sans chemical’ cleanliness of products compared to other brands. 3-free was Formaldehyde, Toluene & DBP free, 5-free removed Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor, 7-free removed more, 12-free nail polish and so on.

Beyond Red Nail Polish

BUT it’s all changed!

 

These days businesses are including things like animal products & gluten (gluten is never found in nail polish) which makes it hard to compare brands. Without a cosmetic governing body, you really have to look into what each brand is claiming as their ‘x-free’. We have recently removed our ‘7-free’ label because there are many others claiming to be ‘10-free’ nail polish, ‘12-free’ (even 21-free!) but they still use Benzophenone-1, an endocrine disruptor, and that’s one of the ones we avoid. It became a marketing race which is something we do not want to be a part of.

You guys see right through that, we  know you do! So, if you have a ‘7-free’ bottle of ours, rest assured it’s still the cleanest you can get. And if you’re looking at ‘10-free’ nail polish, ‘12-free’ ‘x-free’ brands and think they must be super clean, please check the labels. First step is to check if they include Benzophenone-1 in their ingredients list.

 

If they do, we don’t so we’re cleaner!

Conscience Gift Bag

The Conscience Gift Bag

Conscience Gift Bag

Our new Conscience Gift Bag has once again been made by the incredible women of the social enterprise, Freeset Global. This time around we wanted to have a unique ‘Sienna’ style print and so collaborated with the wonderful Kukukachu, a Byron Bay local, to create the perfect subtle design of our gold spots.

Freeset Global

 

Freeset Global is a company created by Kerry and Annie Hilton in 2001. Just after moving to Kolkata, in India, they realised that most of the women who lived there were forced into prostitution by trafficking and poverty. They decided to create a sewing business to offer jobs to those women, and fight with them against the situation they were living in. It took patience and determination, but their efforts were rewarded and today, they work with more than 250 women, offering them and their families a brighter future.

Freeset Global commits to fair trade and eco-friendly practices and we are proud to work with such a company to create this lovely conscience gift bag. See everyone at work here.

The design

It was important for us to create a unique design to reflect our company and so we collaborated with an incredible local print designer, Alana, from Kukukachu studio. Her beautiful patterns and lovely personality inspired us to choose a soft gold spot pattern for our new bags. Check out her design process here.

healthy pink nails

Healthy nails all year around!

The secret to healthy nails, isn’t so secret after all!

healthy pink nails

Here in Australia we are starting to transition into the warmer months, the optimal time to really focus on your nail health to ensure your mani is in top shape by the time summer comes around! Healthy nails aren’t something that you can achieve overnight, or with a couple of days treatment. Changing your routine slightly, and incorporating little elements into your day-to-day life will ensure you have long-term healthy nails that are strong, and in beautiful condition all the time!

For those of you in Europe moving into the winter months- this all applies to you too! The health of your nails can be put to the test both in the warmer humid months, and against the bitter cold. Healthy nails is an all-year endeavour, but a simple one with these gentle reminders!

1. Don’t cut your cuticles, use a cuticle oil and gently push them back. Your cuticles are effectively your skin’s last line of defence, so cutting them is opening the body to bacteria and potential infection. Our cuticle oil is the perfect alternative to cutting, to soften and hydrate instead.

2. Use a base coat and top coat with your mani. It will give more longevity and give your nails the chance to grow strong, while looking amazing!

3. Don’t pick off your old mani! It can be hard sometimes, but resist the urge to pick it off (especially if you’ve gone down the Shellac path) as it can be extremely damaging for the nail bed underneath. Instead, use our hyrdrating water based nail polish remover or wipes, enriched with Vitamin E, to give your nails the little health boost they need.

4. Regularly file you nails to keep them a uniform length and shape. Make sure when filing however, that you start at the outside edge, and file into the middle. Don’t file directly across the top, side to side. This will cause feathering, which is not ideal for your healthy nails! Our glass nail file is the perfect eco-friendly choice in tool, as it never goes blunt!

5. Stay hydrated and make sure your body is getting all the nutrients it needs! Protein in particular is needed for strong nails- so make sure you’re getting enough Tofu and Tempeh in!

6. Stay away from nail products full of harmful chemicals (although you’ve found us! So you’re on the right track!). Sometimes it may seem like a faster or easier option, but the chemical laden nail products will only cause long-term negative harm. Take the time out of your week for a vegan, cruelty free mani instead!

Autumn Colour Palette

autumn colour palette jewel tones

Autumn is here! And as sad we are to say goodbye to our favourite summer months, there is something very appealing about it cooling off… the autumn colour palette. This year we are embracing everything jewel toned- deep, shimmery, rich hues that really up the ante on our day-to-day mani!

Jewel tones are the perfect addition to your autumn colour palette, as they flatter all skin types, giving you a glowing, radiant look. When determining what the best colour for you is, first determining you skin tone is where to start- whether you are Dark Cool, Light Cool, Dark Warm or Light Warm.

Dark Cool

Characteristics– pale white, olive or slightly sallow skin that tans easily. Dark roots with no red/auburn undertones.

The bright vibrant hues work best on Dark Cool skin tones- think colours like Royale, Bonsoir, Gypsy and even our Heartfelt Homes red.

Light Cool

Characteristics– fair to light olive skin that tends to tan easily rather that burn. Light Blonde to Dirty Blonde hair with no red tones at roots.

Cool jewel tones like Stardust, Genie and Beyond best suit you light-cool beauties!

Dark Warm

Characteristics– creamy white, fair skin with or without freckles, that tends to burn easily. Hair tends to be auburn, copper or brown with red undertones at the roots.

Warm colours that emphasise the warmth in your hair and skin suits best! Promise, Torakina and Sundance are all perfect jewel tones for your statement mani.

Light Warm

Characteristics– creamy ivory or peachy pink skin with red/pink undertones. Naturally strawberry blonde or golden blonde hair with golden tones at the roots.

The corals, bright peach and orange-red tones are best suited those with light warm skin! Sol, Daydreamer and Love are all beautifully complimentary shades for you!

Of course, with any decision in life, the absolute number one deciding factor should be choosing what you LOVE the most! If your heart is set on a particular colour, wearing it with confidence will look the best. Choose a jewel tone that brightens your day! Send us through your photos rocking the bright and bold jewel tones as your autumn colour palette!

How long does a manicure last? The question on everyone’s lips!

how long does a manicure last

 

The age-old nail polish question- how long does a manicure last? We are asked this so frequently, you would think we have a simple answer! But when it comes to nails, there are so many different variables effecting the length of your manicure lasting, there isn’t one answer that applies to everyone.

Nail health, genetics and daily activity are just a couple of the many variables playing a role in how long your manicure will stay chip free and beautiful. Keep reading below for our guide to what may be effecting your nails, and how to get the most out of your manicure!

First things first, we have one question for you…

How long does a manicure last for you usually? (When using professional standard nail lacquer)

Keep that number of days in mind- because that is generally what you will get with most standard polishes. There are a number of factors that come into play, that can influence your manicure length

Genetics

Everyone has a different genetic make-up, which means different types of nails. We are all genetically predisposed to having strong, brittle, dry or cracking nails, and if you want them to be healthy, you make-do with what you’ve got! Strong nails will maintain a chip free manicure the longest, and nails that are prone to dryness, brittleness or flaking will chip a bit faster.

 

People with normally oily skin may find that nail polish doesn’t often adhere well to their nail bed. To combat this, we recommend using a non-oil-based remover, to dry the nail bed out slightly before applying.

Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can also have an impact on your nail health and in determining how long does a manicure last! Conditions that leave your skin dry and flaky, can have the same effect on your nails, leading to a shorter manicure length. Using a good cuticle oil to hydrate the base of the nail is a great way to combat dry and flaky skin, but be sure to check with your doctor or specialist first to ensure these products don’t inflame the condition.

Nail Health

If you are an avid shellac or acrylic nail user, this takes a toll on your nail health. Usually, you will have to allow the nail to completely grow out from base to tip, before the nail starts to strengthen and go back to full health. The avid buffing that nail salons employ, as well as the harsh chemicals being applied directly to your nail bed, all contribute to poor natural nail health. Allow your nails to grow out, and use a breathable nail polish in the interim, to allow nails to go back to full health.

Diet is the primary building block for optimal nail health. Nails are made of a protective protein Alpha-Keratin, so require a diet plentiful with proteins for strength. Our nails also need plenty of Vitamin A, and a combination of Vitamin D and Calcium to avoid dryness and brittleness.

Medications can also play a part in nail health. Dry and brittle nails can be a side effect of various different medications- if this happens to you, speak with your prescribing specialist for ways in which to combat this.

Daily Activity

If you’ve been reading through thinking, you’re in perfect health but still not getting long enough out of your manicure, it may be your daily activity shortening its lifespan!

Activities that expose your manicure to excess water, soaps or oils will impact your manicure. Washing dishes, shampooing and conditioning hair, or for parents, baby wipes and nappy creams, can all impact on your manicure length. Those that work in hospitality or jobs involving a lot of manual work, may be prone to their manicure chipping more easily also.

 

Environment

For the longest lasting manicure, you want strong nails that aren’t flaky or brittle, but also aren’t too oily. A happy medium is the prime situation- however finding that medium can sometimes seem impossible!

Your daily environment is yet another factor coming into play. Do you work in an air-conditioned office? Using a cuticle oil and quality hand cream will ensure your hands and nails stay healthy in the dehydrating office environment. Excessively humid environments will also take a toll due to excess moisture getting into the nails, lessening the length of your manicure.

Products and Application

This is the easiest factor to control in answering how long does a manicure last. The technique you use to paint your nails, and the products you use can all effect the life span. Avoid products that contain nasty toxins and chemicals- even if you get a long-lasting manicure using them, because in the long term, your nail health could suffer. Choosing breathable products allows the nail bed to remain healthy, even when you’re consistently painting.

When applying product, keep your coats thin and aim for 2-3 coats for maximum durability and manicure time. Applying too thick polish, will mean a longer drying time, and higher likelihood of peeling or cracking. Thin coats are quick drying and make it much easy to apply an even coverage!

If the products you are using are too old, you may start to notice they are thick and hard to apply. This is because as nail polish ages, some of the ingredients evaporate, making a thicker consistency. Once opened, your bottle should last 12-18 months before beginning to thicken.

Keeping your nails short is another great trick to maintaining a perfect manicure! Long nails have the tendency to bend, which can crack and chip the polish.

So… answer the question, how long does a manicure last?

Sadly, there is no one-size-fits-all answer! You may get 5, 7, 10 or more days out of your manicure, depending on all the factors listed above!

If you have any other questions regarding mani longevity, nail health or anything else, please don’t hesitate to send us a message! Remember, your nail health is just like body health. Fuelling your body and maintaining a healthy lifestyle will also help your nails!

  • Cuticle Oil

Our divine freesia cuticle oil is the super-nourishing step you need in your nail care routine. After finishing your manicure with a top coat and allowing it to dry, all you need is a little drop on each cuticle. The oil will ensure you cuticles stay healthy and hydrated, which leads to longer, stronger nails. It also helps replenish moisture to the skin around the nail, which can be dry after being exposed to nail polish remover. You’ll be addicted in no time… trust us!

  • Glass nail file

The gorgeous glass nail file in velvet pouch, is a lifelong investment you’re making in your mani! No longer will you need disposable cardboard emery boards, as the glass nail file never goes blunt… which means you’ll always have perfectly oval, square, squoval, rounded, pointed (or whatever shape you prefer) nails and you’re doing mother earth a favour in cutting down waste.

  • Remover

Our soy remover has always been a best-seller, so we decided it was time for an update both with our packaging and formula! We’ve switched to a beautiful glass bottle, which is reusable and recyclable- much eco-friendlier! Our previous oil-enriched formula has now been improved to a lighter formula, still enriched with soy.

  • Wipes

Our remover wipes are a nail-lacquer-loving traveller’s best friend. Just one wipe will remove polish from all 10 nails, so you’ll be ready for your next colour and have a fresh mani in no time. The gorgeous glass container is also reusable, cutting down wastage. We don’t currently offer refill packs, but you can make your own refill, with circular makeup remover pads and our new acetone free remover with soy poured on top.

All of these products are now available for individual purchase through our online store, and through most of our stockists. The Remover Wipes, Cuticle Oil and Glass Nail File are also available in our Conscience Gift Set.
