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

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.

Nailphilia-worthy manicure

Before going to the Nailphilia art exhibition, I wanted to make sure my own nails looked fabulous. Because it was the weekend and I had a lot of time, I made myself comfortable with a cup or two of green tea and made this design. Lots of pictures, but I quite like showing you the … Continue reading
