Miami Nice Meebox March 2017

Here’s some nail art I created using the Miami Nice Meebox, for March 2017. As I’m visiting Miami a little later in the year, I thought I’d try out an outlandish 80s Miami look. I’ve been obsessed with nail polish for coming up five years, yet there are three bottles of polish in this box […] Read more

Peach Roses | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I’m a little late in posting these peach roses as it has been back to school for my son this week, and that has meant I’ve been running around with lots to do to get him sorted and ready. These nails are for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group, where the colour prompt was […] Read more

Burgundy With Cream Roses | Theatre Inspired | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I wore this burgundy with cream roses manicure a few weeks ago. I posted it to my Instagram account, but didn’t get around to putting it on the blog. The theme for this week’s 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group is “inspiration”. These nails were inspired by a trip I took to the Rose Playhouse […] Read more

Baby Boomer Music Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

The prompt a little while ago (yes, I’m late again!) for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group was music. I stamped some musical notes onto a gradient to create these baby boomer music nails. The base is a French tips gradient of nude and white, to create “baby boomer” nails. Baby boomer nails were […] Read more

Birds in a Tree | Twinsie Tuesday

Birds is the theme for the Twinsie Tuesday prompt today. I’ve put some birds in a tree, after I saw this manicure by Wacky Lacki where she used the same Fake Tattoos of birds that I was planning to use. For the background, there was nothing better to start off with than Barry M Sky […] Read more

Silver Swirls | Inspired by Jewellery | Twinsie Tuesday

I’m on time for Twinsie Tuesday this week, for the first time in a while! The prompt is inspired by jewellery. My silver swirls are inspired by some silver and abalone jewellery I saw. I didn’t want to faithfully recreate it; I just wanted to take a few aspects from it to create my manicure. […] Read more

Purple Skittlette | Mix & Match | Twinsie Tuesday

The Twinsie Tuesday group is doing mix and match manicures today. I haven’t heard that term applied to a nails look before, so I am not entirely sure if I’ve got this right. To me, it sounds like it should be a bit of a skittlette: the match being the same or similar colours, and […] Read more

Dandelion Nails | Things That Fly | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These dandelion nails are for the “things that fly” prompt for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group I really wanted to have dragonflies on my nails, but could only find a solitary one on a Bundle Monster plate. So I thought I’d try to be a little different and go for a non-animal/insect flying […] 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. With a Scottish surname like Kerr – which is a clan name with its own tartan – you’d think I would always have been obsessed with tartan. But I am English, […] Read more

Christmas Trees And Stars | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

We’re doing Christmas a week early for 40 Great Nail Art Ideas and I have some gold Christmas trees and stars. I first thought about this design almost a year ago when I first bought the Born Pretty Store BP-01 stamping plate. The design reminded me of a business Christmas card that I had sent […] Read more
