It’s so exciting finding out about a baby, but then having to wait a certain amount of time before announcing it. It feels like I’ve known about this pregnancy forever and have been dying to do these nails. I should probably clarify that it isn’t my baby, it’s my sister-in-law’s. Babies actually terrify me, but when it’s my niece or nephew I adore them, and I can’t wait for a new addition to the family. The funnest baby game is always….boy or girl?
I’ve been so busy creating miniature sized art on my nails that I totally missed that my last post was also my 100th post! That seems so crazy! I had ideas to do something extra special for number 100 but thought I was still a way off from it, well I shall plan something for my 150th post then? Today I tried some stamping using duochrome nail polish, not my favourite polish to wear on my nails but I do love the effect of this mani!
Today is a nice and simple mani to show off another one of China Glaze’s glitters from their Electric Nights collection.
Ok, so I know I said I wanted to stay away from nudes for a while but sometimes they are just a good base colour and the flowers are colourful!
I was in the mood for what I describe as ‘messy play’ nails. Basically nail art that ends up more on your hands than on your nails. It’s been a while since I did some splatter nails, and as I have expressed before I love lack of symmetry! These nails are perfect for me, I can’t predict how they will end up looking!!
I didn’t realise how much I would like this nude colour till I tried it, it’s a lot darker than my others and I just love it! Just wanted plain, pretty, girly nails today so I added bows as a nice touch!
Weird name, a friend shared with me a video of sugar spun nails in rainbow colours. I have seen this technique before but seeing this video gave me an idea. I try not to copy other people’s nails but rather use their idea to inspire me to do something similar. I also have to add that these nails took a long time, my friends often ask how long I spend doing my nail art and the honest is that it never takes as long as you think….but these nails have a long wait before even starting!!
Have you seen some of the new plates that MoYou have released recently? If you have it’s probably because I have mentioned their doodle plates before, but today one of those doodle plates is covered in creatures from the deep blue and I love it!!
I searched all kinds of crazy descriptions trying to find the name for my nails today, the pattern is called Ikat and I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. I love this pattern, and I love all the different ways that it can be done.
