Pink and Iridescent Festival Nail Art

Painted Fingertips | Pink and iridescent nail art

Hi everyone!

If you’re around here much, you probably know that I don’t feel the urge to have pink nails all that often. When pink does make an appearance, it’s usually a smaller part within some nail art. But one day recently, I had the urge to go not just pink, but pink with an added iridescent topper. Meanwhile I was wondering what to do for today’s Crumpets Nail Tarts theme of festivals/hippie travels. Once I had the photos done of these nails I realised that they could probably do for the festival theme.  (more…)

Hi everyone!

A while ago I showed you a #5minutenailart that I had done using the cling wrap technique. At the time I thought that this was the perfect base for some stamping, and so I decided to turn it into some pretty peacock-themed nail art.  (more…)

Nail art ideas for Weddings – Silver and Gold

Painted Fingertips | Gold and silver nails with ornate blue stamping - perfect for a wedding

Hi everyone!

As the old saying goes, for your wedding you always need something gold, something stamped, something patterned and something blue. Wait, am I remembering that right? It doesn’t matter – these nails incorporate all 4 of my version and we all know nails are what a wedding is all about.

Today’s theme in the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts challenge is weddings, obviously. I’ve never been much of a fan of most ‘traditional’ wedding nail looks – French manicures or soft pinks just aren’t my thing. In fact, for my own wedding, I wore sparkly teal nails with stamped swirls. It was important to me to do what I wanted rather than to conform to any norms – after all, it was my wedding day! With that in mind, I went with a bit of a compromise on these. I used a gold and silver base – pretty traditional wedding colours – but then went all out with stamping and ended up with wedding nails that are anything but traditional. (more…)
