Raspberry with Floral Stamping | Bluesky Diva Dash & MoYou Nails 487

I have lots of posts to publish, but I am rather behind due to having had flu and then, after that, a poorly husband who’s had six weeks with pneumonia. That is all, thankfully, now behind us and I can hopefully catch up and post everything I’ve been sitting on for the past few weeks. […] 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

Harry Potter: Hogwarts’ Houses | Films | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

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. Four of the hēhē plates are themed around the Hogwarts’ houses. I don’t know how accurately they represent the house flags and crests as used in the […] Read more

Pink and Cream Roses | Reverse Stamping | Moyra Florality 1 Plate

I did some reverse stamping using a new stamping plate from Moyra, and created these pink and cream roses. Moyra is a relatively unknown brand in the UK at the moment. Their polishes were being sold in the UK via someone on a Facebook group about a year or more ago, but I don’t think […] Read more

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

Swear Words Manicure | Twinsie Tuesday

I have a swear words manicure for the Twinsie Tuesday prompt this week, the theme for which was words. I was initially going to play it safe and do some “normal” words, but I changed my mind once I received the MoYou London Lingo 01 plate, which has a load of wonderful British phrases on […] 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

Red and Black Geometric Stamping

This red and black geometric stamping manicure is one of my favourites. I do love some geometric stamping; and plain and simple, without being too fussy, is always a winner with me. 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

Myself and many of the British Nail Bloggers are creating pink zebra nails to promote this awareness day and to support my lovely nail blogger friend, Emma, of Em’s Little Corner. Emma’s husband was diagnosed with a […] Read more

I have some white with black floral stamping nails today, for the Twinsie Tuesday prompt, which is to create something inspired by your favourite movie. 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
