Lovers Gradient: HPB Presents Gradients

Hi everyone!

Today I am taking part in a Hobby Polish Bloggers linkup. If you’re also a blogger, it’s a great group to be in to discuss nails and blogging. This month’s theme is gradients.

If you haven’t heard of Piggieluv before, you’re going to thank me for this post. If you’re really into nails, though, you probably have! She is one of my favourite nail artists and does amazing freehand and 3D designs. Today’s look was inspired by this post she did. She created a love story in 5 manis and I chose one of the 5 to repoduce. I went with a different coloured gradient, and somehow my couple ended up looking really short, but overall I like it!

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

Freehand Flowers

Hi everyone!

I have really been loving gradients lately and today I have used a gradient again, as a base for some fun freehand nail art. I was inspired by this post on A Little Polish, where Stephanie stamped flowers over a gradient. I did something similar but I changed up the colours and did it freehand.

Swatch and comparison: my 5 brightest pinks

Hi everyone!

With the weather warming up lately, I felt like putting something bright on my nails. I decided to go with pink, and I have done a comparison for you of my 5 brightest pinks so we can see which is the brightest of them all!

Water Marble Wednesday

Hi everyone!

I promised you a new water marble feature in my 1 year of blogging celebratory post, so here is the first marble! If you like water marbles, keep your eyes open for future Wednesday posts.

April Tri-Polish Challenge Part 1: Roses

Hi everyone!

My posting schedule is a bit off this week. After the long weekend we took for my boyfriend’s birthday I did my Monday post on Tuesday and only after posting it did I realise I was supposed to do my Tri-Polish Tuesday post.

I took part in this challenge a few times last year but I haven’t had a chance for it yet this year. The rules have changed a little and instead of using the exact same 3 polishes for each nail art design you only have to use the same 3 colours and you can switch polishes each week.

This month the colours are pink, yellow and blue. Here’s what I came up with:essence-colour-&-go-wanna-be-your-sunshine-happy-end-revolution-saphire-roses-nail-art (more…)
