I got married!

It was a lovely summer’s day with friends and family present. There was good food, wine, dancing, singing, emotional speeches, laughter, tears (I didn’t think it was possible to cry so much and be so happy at the same time), photographs, hugging and love. Lots and lots of love. I did get a chance to … Continue reading

Wedding nails inspiration

I’m getting married very soon – in only a couple of weeks, and by now most pieces should have come together. Of course, I still haven’t decided on my shoes, how to wear my hair or my nails!!

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

Postsecret nails

I’ve been a massive fan of the Postsecret art project for years, I even saw Frank speak at my university back in 2009. I now also have the iPhone app, and there’s an abundance of happy/funny/sad/unique secrets being shared every minute of every day. I’ve collected the ones that I like, or recognise within myself … Continue reading

What do you think? Ingredients list Prep time: ~1,5 hours. You need to leave enough time for the base … Continue reading

Old designs (lots of pictures)

I have been making pretty nail art designs for about four years now, gradually getting better. I used to just take pictures with my mobile phone in the past, so the quality of these images is not great. However, I thought I would share these old designs on here.
