We’re doing films for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group, and I chose to use my new hēhē plates for a Harry Potter-inspired Hogwarts’ houses skittle manicure.

Shattered Glass Stamping | Twinsie Tuesday

For Twinsie Tuesday, we’re doing shattered glass nails. Now, I don’t have any cellophane, nor much desire to spend hours cutting it up and sticking it my nails – much as I like the effect of the finished look. So I cheated and stamped my shattered glass nails instead. The base is a polish I […] Read more

Red and Black Tartan

I created these red and black tartan nails using Born Pretty Store stamping plate BP-L006. I am quite obsessed with tartan at the moment.

I painted a red base for this and then stamped over it in black. The red base is Barry M Sparkling Ruby, the […] Read more

Black and White Dots | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

Today, the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas theme is black and white, and my personal pattern is dots. My black and white dots weren’t created with a dotting tool though, but with stencils. I painted a base of Nella Milano Raven Wing, then added the dots using Nella Milano Chantilly Cream. I used some stencils […] Read more

I can’t quite decide what my favourite movie is. I have a top five, in no particular order: La Vita é Bella/Life Is Beautiful, The Shawshank Redemption, The Italian Job […] Read more
