(Unintentionally) festive plaid

(Unintentionally) festive plaid

When I painted these nails (back in November! eep!) I was just picking colours that I thought looked good together; but I got a lot of comments about how festive they were. I suppose they do draw on the red, green and gold Christmas palette but personally I think they’d work for any time of … 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

Purple and yellow stripes

Purple and yellow stripes

Making the effort to move away from the coral and teal I seem to be obsessed with lately, I tried to pick two of the lesser-used colours in my nail varnish collection: purple and yellow. This was the result. I used the lightest yellow as a base and then just used a small nail art … Continue reading

Matilda!

Matilda!

I went to see Matilda the musical on Friday so I did Matilda nails in celebration! They’re based on this book cover (I got the image from Roald Dahl Fans online) but with the yellow background I remember from my copy when I was little. (As a bookish child I was obviously obsessed with Matilda … Continue reading

Clueless Mani #3: Dionne in neon

My flatmates and I hosted a New Year’s Eve party this year: it was great fun but I didn’t get to sleep until around 5am so as you can imagine, not much got done the following day. After we finished sorting the bottles for the recycling and wiping the mud off the floor (the party … Continue reading

Clueless Mani #1

I couldn’t even count the number of times I have seen it but I still love it SO MUCH and what better way to pay tribute than with a series of Clueless manicures? I … Continue reading

Paint splatter nails

Bright paint splatter nails – bit of a different vibe to the Jackson Pollock ones I did during my challenge. [This post was originally published on my Tumblr account on the date given at right: I imported it to WordPress in late November 2012.]

Day 24: Inspired by a book

Day 24: Inspired by a book

  Nails on fire (‘The Hunger Games’). I read the first book in the series just recently and was very happy to read about Katniss’s nail art! I think it’s the first fictional nail art I’ve encountered… This is probably more biker chic than Capitol glamour but I liked it anyway. [This post was originally … Continue reading

Day 3: Yellow nails
