Olympic round up

So the London 2012 Olympics are now over. It came, it dazzled, it inspired, and now we can only hope the Paralympics is as awesome. I am looking forward to learning loads about it, and just getting back into watching new sports that I’ve never seen before! I had three posts on Olympic-inspired nail art … Continue reading

Olympic rings

It’s the Olympics! Wohoo! I started doing this manicure when watching the Opening Ceremony. How weird, how wonderful, and how very British! I’m getting very excited to watch the Games, I predict most evenings now will be spent glued in front of the TV.                   Ingredients list … 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 don’t think I’ve been too much of a bridezilla, but it’s certainly been a stressful experience. … Continue reading

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: 8. Guess who is coming to town?

Ho Ho Ho! There’s no Christmas without Santa Claus, St. Nick, Jultomten, or whatever name you have for him! I found some cute Santa nail art inspiration to share with you. As always, click on the image to be taken to the original tutorial/blog, and see how it was done!          

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

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

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

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
