Team GB

Wow, Team GB is doing so well in the Olympics! It’s so much fun to see! I’m supporting so many countries, my own native Sweden, Team GB, USA, and then some individual athletes. Usain Bolt has been a pleasure to watch! The Japanese gymnasts! The marathon runners! Yes, I’ve really gotten into the Olympic spirit. … Continue reading

Jubilee Union Jack nails

Yay for the Queen. Yay for another bank holiday weekend! We’re having a bit of a party at work, so I’ve made a Union Jack chocolate cake, and I need the nails to match. I made these Union Jack style nails earlier, for the Royal wedding between Kate & Wills, but I thought I would … 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: 7. Christmas details

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

Rainbow rhinestones

I did this manicure a little while ago, and used almost 100 rhinestones in the process. I guess this is my take on a rainbow manicure. It was fun, not too difficult at all, just a little bit time consuming – especially sorting out and counting all of the individual rhinestones. I would recommend counting … Continue reading
