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! (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s day 18 of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge and today’s theme is Sci-Fi. This gave me the perfect opportunity to do a nail design that’s been milling around in the back of my mind for some time – Green Lantern nails. I do like Green Lantern, but I’m not really a huge fan… unlike my boyfriend! Green Lantern is one of his favourite figures because the fact that the Green Lantern uses his will to fight is very true to life – each one of us has to use our will to get any of the things we have in life. I do think it’s a very cool concept which is why I decided to represent it on my nails today. (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 8: Still Life

Hi everyone!

We’re into the second week of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge and things are getting a little more complicated. This weeks themes are all about ‘art101’ and require a little more thinking than week 1!

December Tri-Polish challenge part 2

Hi everyone!

If you saw Tuesday’s post, you’ll know that this month the tri-polish challenge theme is gold and silver with colour accents. In this mani the gold and silver are more the accents, but these polishes stamp so perfectly that I couldn’t resist. I used Tip Top Gold Digger for the gold, and Armourplate for the silver. Today’s pictures are with the lightbox again, so enjoy 🙂december-tri-polish-challenge (more…)

Water marble over silver

Hello ladies!

Today I’m excited to show you a water marble I’ve done. I’ve always been amazed by those who can control the patterns of their water marble (and I still am), but I think with enough practice maybe I can do it too! So even though I’m not there yet I am very proud of the one I’ve done today:
