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…)

Geometric stamping

Hey guys!

Today I am sharing a stamping mani with you. I am very, very new to stamping so it is far from perfect! These pictures were also taken just before I started the blog. It’s only since I started that I realised how much better it looks if you clean up PROPERLY, and not only more or less, but I still want to post the nails I’ve done before. So, sorry for all the pictures you might be seeing soon without proper cleanup, I promise I’ll put more effort into it from now on!

geometric2I started with 2 coats of Tip Top nail chic – Cha Cha Cha. I had a swatch of it on its own, but it was taken at a different time and my lighting was awful so I just couldn’t get the colour right. You can see it well enough on these pictures.

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.
