Hi everyone!

If you’re a fairly regular reader on this blog, you’ll know that during the month of February I did the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge hosted by Gnarly Gnails. It was 28 days of nail art, and it was a lot of fun! I managed the daily nail art, I tried a bunch of new techniques, and I did some designs that I was pretty proud of. Let’s start off by taking a look at the themes covered by the challenge: (more…)

Hi everyone

It’s the FINAL DAY of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge! I’ve made it, 28 days of artistically themed nail art for your enjoyment! I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my nail art along with some new-to-me techniques, and of course the nail art of all the other ladies taking part. Today’s theme is Art Nouveau. I didn’t really know what to do with that, but one of the ‘tips’ for this theme was lines so I decided to use that as my guide. (more…)

Hi everyone!

I made it! A little later than usual, but I made it in plenty of time and I have some great Surrealism nails for you today. I was pretty concerned about these because I knew from the beginning I wanted to recreate Dali’s The Persistence of Memory… but I also knew how tough that would be! Luckily, I think I was pretty successful. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s almost the end of week 3 of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge hosted by Gnarly Gnails. Today’s theme is Pop Culture. I struggled for a while thinking of ideas for this theme, but after some thought I realised one of the main aspects of our pop culture is celebrities – whether they are singers, actors, or simply rich ‘personalities’, most of us have at least heard of them and some people relish knowing as many details of their lives as possible. Of course, here in the nail community, different nail art styles are a part of our specific pop culture, so I decided to combine the two and do a recreation of some celebrity nails. (more…)
