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…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge is Game Night. I struggled for a while to think of a good idea for this one, but eventually another mani I’d seen recently surfaced from the back of my mind and I realised it was perfect for this theme. For the life of me, I can’t remember where I saw this, and I couldn’t find it with a quick search because too many similar designs have been done, so please do let me know if you know who did it!

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 18: Sci-Fi – Green Lantern

Hi everyone!

It’s day 18 of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge and today’s theme is Sci-Fi. This gave me the perfect opportunity to do a nail design that’s been milling around in the back of my mind for some time – Green Lantern nails. I do like Green Lantern, but I’m not really a huge fan… unlike my boyfriend! Green Lantern is one of his favourite figures because the fact that the Green Lantern uses his will to fight is very true to life – each one of us has to use our will to get any of the things we have in life. I do think it’s a very cool concept which is why I decided to represent it on my nails today. (more…)

Hi everyone!

We’ve reached the third week of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge hosted by Gnarly Gnails and things are really starting to get tough. I am still completely stuck on a few of this weeks prompts, and I’m running out of time! That is half the fun of doing a challenge like this though – it gives you the opportunity to think of some new nail art ideas and maybe try some new techniques. That’s exactly what I’ve done today – I tried making stamping decals for the first time! I’ve seen so many beautiful stamping decals lately that I knew I had to try it for myself. (more…)
