Spring pastels

Spring is here! This is definitively the time for pretty pastels, and why stick to one colour? Colourful nails is the trend, and if you don’t own lots of pastel colours yourself, maybe get together with some friends and pool together your collections and see what you can find. : )         … Continue reading

New Year’s Nails

I spent New Year’s Eve in Australia this year, my first time spending the winter holidays in the sunshine. It was a lovely vacation, a lot of time was spent at the beach, by a pool, and just hanging out with friends and family. I was there with my mum and my sister – so … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 9. Multicoloured nails

This is another manicure from last year, multicoloured, festive and quite easy to do! I hope I inspire you, obviously any colour combinations can work – but it’s fun to use more than three colours, and alternate them across all of the nails. You can use tape to get the lines perfect, but this ‘triangle’ … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 4. My snowflake design

So after researching awesome ideas for snowflake designs, I had to make my own manicure. It’s an easier design than many people think, but it does require a steady hand. I would recommend the Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens for this because they are water-based. This means, if you make a mistake, you can soak … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 3. Candy Cane sweetness

It’s the ultimate holiday candy right? Well, probably more so in the US, but still, it’s permeated here in Europe. I love these designs and I am so inspired by them. I think this is a pretty good idea for ‘easy’ nail art. Red nail polish, white stripes (any thickness really), and ta daa! I … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 1. Snowflake inspiration

I’ve always been the kind of person who seems to celebrate the holidays throughout the month of December, and now I can express this here on the blog as well! I’ll start with snowflakes, a pretty, impressive motif that doesn’t have to be too difficult. I will be posting my own design shortly, but first … Continue reading

Space nails

I’m really excited to share this nail art tutorial with you. My sister requested this a while back but we haven’t had a chance to get together in weeks. I saw her this past weekend and in exchange for a drink at the bar (yummy banana cocktail), she got a space manicure. It was very … Continue reading

Preppy nails

This is one of my old designs. I gave both my sister and myself a manicure, and I wanted them to match in style. I think the effect is quite preppy. What do you think? Ingredients list Prep time: ~1 hours, for each manicure. Plenty of time for sister chats. Base coat: Dior base coat … Continue reading

Purple glitter Jessica nail polish design

I bought this Jessica nail polish over 4 years ago, and it has served me well. It’s a dark plum colour, perfect for autumn. It looks great on long and short nails. I’m getting to the end of the bottle, but I think it’s got at least one more manicure left in it. It’s weird, … Continue reading
