Hi everyone!

I have another stamping plate from Born Pretty Store to share with you today. To start with I am going to show you the nails I created with them, because I am SO proud of them and they show you how amazing this plate is, too! Painted Fingertips | Ornate Stamping Decals (more…)

12 Days of Christmas: Snowmen

Hi everyone!

Today I have another post for the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge hosted by the Facebook Group Challenge Your Nail Art. Today’s theme is snowmen – another wintery one even though it’s summer here! I couldn’t complain though because once I saw a lovely snowman scene by Instagram nail artist @MelissaRose0410 I couldn’t wait to try something similar! Painted Fingertips | Snowman scene (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Spiderwebs

Hi everyone!

Today I have another Halloweeny water marble for you. You can take a look at previous Water Marble Wednesdays here.

For today’s Water Marble Wednesday, I have tried to create spiderwebs. A couple of my nails were more successful then others… if you’re not quite sure what it looks like, the little spider I added is a helpful hint 😉Painted Fingertips | Spiderweb Water Marble (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Polish Trend that Died

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is a polish trend that died. The first thing that springs to mind is crackle polish, which was a pretty big but very brief trend, however I don’t have any crackle polish since I never liked it much. I decided to go with the only ‘trend’-type untried polish I had, a magnetic polish. I also combined it with bar glitter and microbeads, which I thought were also appropriate for the theme. depend_magnetic_dark_grey_essence_magnetics_witch_you_were_here_LA_girl_rock_star_supernova_Microbeads_bundle_monster (more…)

Subtle Snakeskin Stamping

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I did! It was my boyfriend’s birthday yesterday so he took the day off and we had a long weekend. We went to the KKNK which is an Afrikaans music and arts festival here in South Africa. It was my first time there and it was a lot of fun! But I’m back today with some nail art for you.

I heard that the Essence Magnetic polishes were good for stamping so I decided to give them a try. I think I didn’t use the best base colour so it came out more subtle than I would have liked but I still think it looks cool. snakeskin-subtle-stamping-tip-top-nailc-chic-chiffon-squares-essence-magnetics-majestic-green-moyou-pro-colection-05 (more…)
