Silver and Blue diagonal stripes | Twinsie Tuesday

I have these silver and blue diagonal stripes for the Tuesday prompt of “inspired by your childhood” this week. If my nails look quite obscure and not particularly reminiscent of anything to do with childhood, it’s because they are inspired by my old school tie. My senior school was built in 1977, which was the […] Read more

diagonal stripes: Three Blues (52 Week Challenge)

For this week in the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge the choices are domestic animals or three shades of blue. I didn’t fancy putting cats or dogs or rabbits on my nails, so went with the three blues prompt. I’ve done some diagonal stripes. Diagonal isn’t a very common thing for me.

Ultimately, I couldn’t come up with anything original to do, so I went with the standard candy canes French tip […] Read more

33DC Day 6: Textured

I really enjoyed this manicure that I created for day 6 of the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts 33 Day Challenge. Finally, I am wearing a manicure on all of my nails – not just four – and I will be keeping it on for several days, rather than swiftly removing it after deciding I don’t like […] Read more

Everything But The Kitchen Sink manicure: purple

Some of my lovely Twitter friends are doing an Everything But The Kitchen Sink Manicure challenge. The challenge is fairly straightforward: on Saturdays in January you do your nails in an “everything but the kitchen sink” fashion. That basically means that you do a mismatched manicure where all (or nearly all) the nails are different. If you want to see […] Read more
