Pastel Halloween Pumpkin Faces | Halloween In The Wrong Colours | 26 Great Nail Art Ideas

Don’t these pastel Halloween pumpkin faces look weird? It’s not right to see Halloween done in the wrong colours! But that’s the theme for this week’s 26 Great Nail Art Ideas group. My Facebook feed has been filled with similar things – pumpkins and graveyards and bats and witches … but done in pinks and […] Read more

Blue, White and Black Chevrons | Twinsie Tuesday

The Twinsie Tuesday group were painting chevrons a fortnight ago (gosh, I’m late with this post!). These blue, white and black chevrons started out in my head as blue, silver and navy. But when I was just about to start on them, having already painted the base blue colour, I remembered these navy, silver and […] Read more

Black and Silver Laser Nails | New Year | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

This week for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group, we’re posting New Year nails. I have some party nails, done with a black and silver laser pattern. They are inspired by the nails that first got me interested in nail polish, back in 2011. I was going to a 40th birthday party that had […] Read more

Purple and Grey: L is for: Lines

It’s L for lines in this week’s A2Z series challenge. I like lines. In fact I’d go so far as to say I love lines, and stripes in particular. So, this was an easy and enjoyable challenge for me. I’ve painted some purple and grey stripes over white. Well, off white really; the base is […] Read more

Pink and Aqua Tape Manicure (52 Week Challenge)

The themes for this week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challengeare dotting tools and/or pink and aqua and I’ve done a tape manicure using the colours option. I wasn’t entirely sure what colour aqua is. I’ve always assumed that it’s short for aquamarine, which is a greeny sort of turquoise. I looked it up and […] Read more

Gold with Black Chevrons: G is for: Gold

For this week in the A2Z series challenge, the theme is gold. I don’t much like gold on my nails. Gold belongs with green in the “I don’t like them” pile. But gold it is, so gold I wore (and then promptly removed again!) I painted black first, just one coat of W7 Black, and […] Read more
