Geometric Molten Metals | Twinsie Tuesday

I’ve called this multi-coloured design “geometric Molten Metals” and it’s for the geometric prompt for the Twinsie Tuesday group. I’m still very late in posting my nails – these were not for Tuesday as in yesterday, but for Tuesday last week. I’ve used all four of the recently launched Molten Metals from Barry M. They […] Read more

Pink, Purple and Grey Stripes | Diabolical Nail Varnish from Firebox

I have some pink, purple and grey stripes nail art, courtesy of Diabolical Nail Varnish. Diabolical Nail Varnish has been specially created by Firebox.com. These three polishes come as a set, presented in a pink box, and are inspired by Wes Anderson’s stylised film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. I absolutely adored the film. I hadn’t […] Read more

Summer Gradient | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

This is my summer gradient for the summer prompt of the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. I had all but caught up last week and was going to post this last weekend, but then my son decided to get a fish bone stuck in his throat. That led to 26 hours in three different […] Read more

Delicate Floral Wedding Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I’m slowly catching up! These floral wedding nails for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group were due almost two weeks ago. I’m only just making it into the Inlinkz linkup! I didn’t really know what to do for the wedding theme. I have done a number of pale stamped lace manicures before that I […] Read more

Pastel and Negative Space Curved Chevrons | Twinsie Tuesday

I have some (rather belated) pastel and negative space curved chevrons nails for last week’s “negative space” prompt for Twinsie Tuesday. I’ve never much liked negative space manicures as my nails are so stained. They’re not too bad at the cuticle end, but by about half way down, they start to get very yellow. You […] Read more

Pink Mosaic Stripes | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

The 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group is doing hot pink and my personal prompt was mosaic or stained glass, so I have some pink mosaic stripes. Not all the polishes I used are hot pink, but then when you’re doing mosaic, you need lots of different colours. My first attempt at mosaic nails began […] Read more

Baby Boomer Music Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

The base is a French tips gradient of nude and white, to create “baby boomer” nails. Baby boomer nails were […] Read more
