Olympic manicure 2 – medals

So my other Olympic manicure got me a lot of compliments, but it was so colourful and bright, and it’s easy to get tired of a loud manicure. You immediately want to switch it up. Also, it’s only the Olympics every 4 years, so I needed to fit in at least one more look! This … 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: 10. O Christmas tree

Wow, the tenth Christmas post – almost there now! Whilst I’m waiting for the polish to dry on my nails, I will upload one last inspiration post, this time conifer-themed, before showing you my final Christmas manicure that I will wear whilst (hopefully) unwrapping gifts 😀              

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: 2. Last year’s mixed nail art

This is my manicure from Christmas last year. There was no uniform theme perhaps, just glitter and festivities. The Christmas tree was quite tricky to perfect, I used a toothpick to shape semi-dry nail polish.         Ingredients list Prep time: ~ 1 hour Base coat: Dior base coat Top coat: Dior quick … 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
