Coral Reef Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These coral reef nails are for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group, whose prompt this week is “Things In The Water”. I decided to use some images from the Bundle Monster Sun Kissed stamping plate collection to create an underwater scene. Firstly, I painted the gradient background using Barry M Cotton, Barry M Sugar […] Read more

Yellow and Silver Double Stamping | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

This is some yellow and silver double stamping for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. The colour prompt is yellow and silver, and my personal theme is pattern on pattern. I only very rarely wear yellow on my nails. I know lots of people really dislike it. I don’t, but it’s not something I […] Read more

Multicoloured Floral Nails | Hippie Flower Power Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These multicoloured floral nails, reminiscent of “flower power”are for the festivals / hippie travels prompt for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. I wasn’t sure at first what direction to take with this prompt. Admittedly, I was born in the year the term “hippie” became widespread, the year of the Human Be-In and the […] Read more

Patchwork Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

The 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group theme this time around is “nude and colour”. My personal prompt is patchwork, so it was easy enough for me to do some patchwork nails that incorporated some colours and a nude polish. I used the patchwork stamp on Bundle Monster plate BM-607 to make some stamping decals. […] Read more

Dragonfly Nails | Insects | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I’m still three weeks behind with this challenge. These dragonfly nails are for the insects prompt from 15th July. As usual, I had grand plans starting out. I wanted to do a riverbank scene, with reeds, water and dragonflies. But as time slipped away and I needed to just get something – anything – on […] Read more

Festival Nails | June 2016 Nailbox

I used the June 2016 Nailbox content to create a festival nails look. This is the first subscription box of polish that I have received. I’ve not signed up to one before because I now have so much polish (I’m approaching 1,000 bottles) and I think that I probably own practically every colour out there, […] Read more

Pink and Aqua Flowers | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These pink and aqua flowers are for the pink and aqua theme (a couple of weeks ago now – ooops) of the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. As ever, there’s a personal prompt that goes along with each colour theme, and mine was “on a nude base” – easy enough! I was going to […] Read more

Blue, White and Black Chevrons | Twinsie Tuesday

The Twinsie Tuesday group were painting chevrons a fortnight ago (gosh, I’m late with this post!). These blue, white and black chevrons started out in my head as blue, silver and navy. But when I was just about to start on them, having already painted the base blue colour, I remembered these navy, silver and […] Read more

Nautical Nails | Bundle Monster Hangloose Collection

These nautical nails are for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. The theme this week is holidays or seaside or the beach and I’ve done a nautical take on the prompt. My husband hankers after a sailing holiday, and would love to sail around the Caribbean, but I prefer to keep that to the […] Read more
