Simple Pink Holo Nail Art

Hello everyone, I hope all your weekends are going well.

Today I have some nails to show you that I did a few months ago and then forgot to post (hence why my nails are much shorter). But I found the pictures saved on my computer a few days ago and I really love them, so I thought I would share them.

For these I started with a base of NYC - MoMa on all my nails.

Once they were dry I painted Orly - Miss Conduct onto half of each nail using a fine nail art brush. I love this colour, sooo pretty! Unfortunately I couldn't capture it perfectly on my camera, the holo sparkle freaked it out a bit. But at least the sun came out when I was taking the pictures :).

I then added my little gems on by sticking them on with a blob of top coat and then top coating over them to secure it all. If I remember correctly these gems would not budge and I kept this mani on for about a week (which is an eternity for me).

And that's all there was to it. Super easy and really rather pretty (even if I do say so myself).

Thanks for stopping by.

Red and Gold Floral Accents

Hello loves, I hope everyone is well.

Today I have some nail art to show you that I wore just over a week ago. I wasn't really sure where I was going with this design. I just sat down with some polishes and went from there. I have to admit I wasn't 100% pleased with how these turned out, but I guess its all good practice :).

For this mani I used a base of OPI - Innie Minnie Mighty Bow on my thumb, index and ring finger and on my pinky I used China Glaze - Goldie But Goodie. On my middle finger I did a gradient of both of these colours.

On my thumb and ring finger I then painted some flowers with a nail art brush using Goldie But Goodie and a black and white creme polish.

I topped everything off with Seche Vite and I was done. 

Excuse the messy bit on my middle finger, I clearly need to work on my clean up skills when doing gradients. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Palm Tree Nail Art


Well my first attempt at blogging kinda failed a little bit didn't it. I don't think I realised how time consuming running a blog actually is, but I have decided to have another shot at it. However this time I actually have a couple of different things already lined up to show you, instead of throwing myself in head first with no preparation and then getting overwhelmed as I have nothing to post! I think I will try and break myself in gently and aim to post at least once a week and then if I feel able to post more often I shall do so :).

Anyway, enough of the babbling and onto the nails.
