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. (more…)
A while ago I was thinking about what nail art I’d like to do when an idea for an experiment hit me. A year or so ago I bought a liquid eyeliner thinking it was supposed to be better than the normal pencils but try as I might, I just couldn’t get it to work for me. It’s been sitting at the back of my cupboard – until now! (more…)
If you’re a regular visitor on this blog, then you probably know by know that I love doing freehand nail art the most. It does take longer than many other techniques though, so I don’t always get a chance to do it. When I do, I love it, and today’s look is no exception! (more…)

Today I have some nail art to share with you using pearl and rhinestone spider studs from the Born Pretty Store. Several months ago as I was planning my Halloween nail art, I really wanted to do something with spider studs but I didn’t have any.

It’s Water Marble Wednesday and today I have combined a water marble with freehand art. Some days a marble just doesn’t go the way you wanted it to. It could be that the polishes don’t spread properly (in which case you should just choose different polishes!) or it could be that the colours just don’t look the way you were hoping they would. That’s what happened to me this time. I did a neon water marble a couple of weeks ago which worked amazingly and another one using only some of the colours which I loved as well. This time I tried to use a different selection of neons and it just didn’t work out. The marble constantly looked muddy and the colours were really pale. (more…)
