Autumn Jumper Knitted Nails | Inspired By The Weather | Twinsie Tuesday

These knitted nails are for this week’s Twinsie Tuesday prompt, inspired by the weather. I’m a day late with this, but better late than never! The weather here in south London is currently just grey and a bit cold. So I didn’t feel that gave me much literal inspiration. Instead, I thought around that a […] 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

London Skyline | Twinsie Tuesday

Yesterday’s Twinsie Tuesday prompt was “inspired by a city”. I’m from London, so I added to my gradient from yesterday and created some London skyline nails. My gradient yesterday looked a bit like a sunset, so I thought I’d create a silhouette skyline against it. I used one of the MoYou Nails square stamping plates […] Read more

Peach, Cream and Navy Dotted Half Moons | Twinsie Tuesday

The Twinsie Tuesday group is back with dotticures this week and I have created a peach, cream and navy dotted half moons manicure. The peach base is Nella Milano Peach Schnapps. Onto that I have added different sized dots using Orly In The Navy and Barry M Coconut. I was inspired by a pin on […] Read more

Fairisle Christmas Jumper Nails | Twinsie Tuesday

After a bit of a hiatus during December, the Twinsie Tuesday group returns today with a Christmas manicure. I have created some Fairisle Christmas jumper nails, in cream, pink and blue. I have just received the CICI & SISI special Christmas plate, Miss Xmas – Happy Reindeer. I won it in a CICI & SISI […] Read more

Pastel Stripes (52 Week Challenge)

This week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge prompts are 3 pastels and negative space. I’ve been wearing a gel base coat for a while to prevent staining, but it hasn’t quite been long enough for all the staining to grow out. So negative space is a big no no for me. Accordingly, I chose […] Read more

Lilac Stamping On Cream : P is for: Pale

I’m extremely busy at the moment with work commitments, so nails are the last thing on my mind. It didn’t help today therefore when my first two efforts for “pale” in this week’s A2Z series challenge went completely wrong and I had to try again. I tried zigzags, but the polish was drying too quickly […] Read more

Brown and cream Barry M water marble (52 Week Challenge)

It’s week 8 in the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge and the choices are brown and books. I chose brown, and my attempts were fraught with initial annoyance. I painted a gradient a few days ago. But I didn’t like it. It looked OK on my nails from a distance, but the photos showed […] Read more

Geometric Colour Blocked Nails: A is for: Angles

I’m starting a new challenge today, a new A2Z series challenge where the A to Z prompts are words, not polishes beginning with the letters. So, the first one is angles. I decided on a three-colour, colour-blocking, geometric, chevron sort of design. (This look needs a name, doesn’t it? That’s too much of a mouthful). […] Read more

Pink stripes on cream: Z is for: Zoya Zanna

It’s the end! This week is letter Z in the A to Z series challenge. I bought Zoya Zanna some weeks ago, specifically for this series of challenges. It was the only polish I could find beginning with a Z. I’m sure there are probably others, but once I’d found this one, I was happy. […] Read more
