Blue geometric glitter nails

These blue geometric glitter nails were inspired by a manicure I saw by Paulina of Paulina’s Passions. I saw it and thought I’d love to create something similar but using blue – but I don’t like my manicure half as much as I like hers. I think it’s probably because the glitter is more prominent on […] 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.

This navy blue with silver geometric stamping manicure for the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge is a bit of a cop out. The two prompts are TV and free choice. TV sounded too hard for me. I could only think that I would be needing to freehand something intricate. So free choice was easier. […] Read more

FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: Shapes / Geometric: Colourful Circles

This week in the FingerFood’s Theme Weeks challenge we’re doing geometric nails. I saw a fabulous picture on Pinterest of a funky coat (image further down), and that became my inspiration for this manicure.

33DC Day 23: Geometric

For day 23 of the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts 33 Day Challenge the theme is geometric. A few weeks ago, while watching QI, I spotted that Stephen Fry was wearing a rather nice tie that had a geometrical pattern. This challenge had not long started, and so I was on the look out for inspiration for […] Read more
