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

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

Winter Trees | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

Today I have some winter trees for the Crumpets Nail Tarts Winter theme for 40 Great Nail Art Ideas. I wanted to used this stamping plate two years’ ago at around this time, for the Christmas Challenge 2013 winter nature theme, but I hadn’t actually received it yet. Surprisingly, despite how much I wanted to […] Read more

Turquoise Comic Style Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

For the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group this time, it’s cartoons and comics. I have some turquoise comic style nails. They are sort of inspired by comics. The base is Barry M Turquoise, which is one of my most favourite polishes of all time. I love blue, and I love turquoise even more. On […] Read more
