A favourite sweatshirt

A favourite sweatshirt

I asked for an ‘exciting’ sweatshirt for Christmas this year and I got it: this lovely one, as modelled by Jessica Alba. I’ve been wearing it loads (despite not looking like Jessica Alba) so I thought I might try out some nails to match. This uses a couple of the new Nails Inc polishes I … Continue reading

Daisy, daisy

Daisy, daisy

(and several more daisies…) The other day, I saw a window display on Tottenham Court Road with daisies on a green background and immediately knew I had my next nail design sorted. I had been wanting to try out my white Barry M nail art pen (you can see the black one in action in … Continue reading

Liberty florals

Liberty florals

I’d had a post on my (rather sparsely populated) Pinterest for absolute ages with a lovely floral print Liberty fabric that I thought might look good on my nails. Given that I’d just purchased Barry M Blue Grape Gelly (one of the new summer Gelly colours) this seemed like a good opportunity and so here’s … Continue reading

Mr Candiipants floral

Still staying away from teal and coral I have some pink and purple flowers for you today. For this look I went with Mr Candiipants’ famous spring floral look: it’s lovely and easy because you don’t need to use anything apart from the brushes in the nail varnish bottle. I don’t think mine are as … Continue reading

Holographic hibiscus

First off I am sorry for this ugly picture of what was actually a really pretty manicure! For some reason I was so busy all the days I had this on my hands that I didn’t manage to take a picture in natural light – so the colours are off, it’s a little bit blurry … Continue reading

Coral flowers

Coral flowers

Although I thought my stripy glitter nails were disco-chic, while I was wearing them I saw a few different friends who I’d not met up with for a while and two separate people told me off for having boring nail art! They like to follow my blog and they wanted something a bit more complicated… … Continue reading

Pansies

Pansies

Pansies: I used a matte topcoat (from Rimmel) to make them look more soft and vintage-y. The base colour is China Glaze Kinetic Candy and design inspiration comes from this tutorial by BlogNailedIt: she was more restrained and only put one pansy on each nail but of course I had to have them ALL OVER. … Continue reading
