Gradients, Glitter, and Striping Tape

Hi everyone!

For today’s nails I started with a plan of doing geometric nails and it morphed until it became more about gradients than about anything geometric. You’ll have to excuse my slightly poorly lit photos – my lighting setup didn’t move with me so I had to make do. You’ll be seeing a few posts like this but it’ll get better! I already got a couple of lamps although I’m struggling to get my hands on good bulbs. Painted Fingertips | Glitter, gradients, and tape

40 Great Nail Art Ideas – Hobbies!

Hi everyone!

Despite the more limited time I have for nails now, I’ve decided to join in on a low-key group linkup. Some ladies are taking part every week but I’ve decided to aim for once every two weeks. Every second friday, you’ll be seeing a different nail art theme and not only will I share my own nails, but there’ll be a linkup at the bottom of the page for you to see more ideas on the theme. Today’s theme was hobbies and for me, that could only go one way. I am barely getting time to do my nails, when would I fit in another hobby at the moment? So, I did nail art about nail art! Painted Fingertips | I love nail art

31DC2015 Day 10: Gradient!

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme is gradient, and I finally got around to doing some nails I’ve been meaning to do for ages. For this same prompt last year, Sarah from Chalkboard Nails did some fireflies on a sunset gradient. The look was hugely popular and I loved it too! I have finally done my own version.

80s Distressed Nails

Hi everyone!

I decided to play with my squishy stamper a bit more to create some 80s-themed nails. Since the 80s were all about bright colours I decided to start with a brightly-coloured distressed effect.

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 15: Round & Square

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. stamping-decals-moyou-artist-collection-03-moyou-pro-collection-10-m65-bm-322-tip-top-nail-chic-sitting-pretty-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-sinful-colors-rise-and-shine-nails-inc-baker-street-sinful-colors-savage (more…)
