31 Day Challenge – Day 7: Black and White nails

Hey everyone! Happy Saturday! I hope you’re all having a nice relaxing weekend.

Today’s challenge was black and white nails. I am sure that many people have come up with amazing graphic designs and patterns, but I decided to go for a water marble.

31 Day Challenge – Day 6: Violet nails

Hi everyone!

Finally, we reach my favourite nail colour: Violet, which means I get to use PURPLE polishes!

31 Day challenge – Day 4: Green Nails

Hi everyone!

Hooray, I am officially DONE with the 3 colours that are not quite me and back into my comfort zone! Green nails! I tried something a bit different for these: My first feather nails.

31 Day challenge – Day 2: Orange nails

Hey guys!

It’s the second day of the 31 day challenge and today the challenge is orange nails. I only had a couple of shades of orange to choose from so I decided to take it literally and put ORANGES on my nails!

31 Day challenge – Day 1: Red nails

Hi everyone! Today is the first day of the 31 day challenge that a whole host of nail bloggers are taking part in. This is the first time I am doing a scheduled post so I hope everything works okay.

The first day is red nails. Well, I didn’t have many colours to choose from (although more than I have for the orange and yellow days!) – my collection is very purple/blue/green heavy. I did like the look I came up with though 🙂  red1 (more…)

Textured Roses

Hello! Happy Friday! Today I have some textured roses for you. I am loving textured nail polish, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy to get a hold of here. I yearn after all the beauties I see on other blogs! Luckily for me, the lovely Michelle over at Ordinary Misfit was kind enough to mail me a mini set of the OPI Mariah Carey Liquid Sand polishes 😀

I was super excited to try them out and even though I was looking forward to Get Your Number and Can’t Let Go the most, I ended up pulling out The Impossible first to try out some textured nail art.

My first post! Zigzag nails

I am completely new to the world of nail art and even newer to the world of blogging. I still have a lot to learn and for now I just want to share my nails with anyone who cares to look! A lot of the things I will be posting on here will be first attempts and won’t look very professional, but that’s the whole point of learning. Please just be patient with me as I bit by bit figure out how to use my camera to the best of its (limited) abilities, put together the best lighting setup I can manage, and so on. For now, I am just going to get to some nail pics!

For my first post I decided on a simple design I did, but one I liked a lot. It was nothing more than some basic zigzags on a couple of accent nails.
