Pink Floral using Essie Coacha’Bella | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These pink floral nails are a simple entry for this week’s floral prompt for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. I am suffering with the postdrome of a migraine today and don’t have the brain power or focus to do anything special, so these nails from a few days ago will have to do. […] Read more

Ladybird Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

Today I have some ladybird nails for the animals theme of the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. Now, we have insects coming up in July as a prompt, so perhaps I should have saved these for that. But, I’ve left it to the last minute as ever – well, over the last minute; these […] Read more

Pink and Lilac Ikat | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These pink and lilac Ikat design nails are for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. I’m very late in posting these. Firstly, I put off painting them as I had never done an Ikat print before; and secondly, my son has been pretty ill most of the weekend, meaning my nurse-maiding duties had to […] Read more

Green, Blue and White Tartan | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

For the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group, the theme is children’s TV. I’m honouring Great Uncle Bulgaria from The Wombles with these green, blue and white tartan nails. Orinoco was my favourite Womble really, but he just wears a big, floppy hat and a red scarf. Great Uncle Bulgaria, on the other hand, has […] Read more

Birds in a Tree | Twinsie Tuesday

Birds is the theme for the Twinsie Tuesday prompt today. I’ve put some birds in a tree, after I saw this manicure by Wacky Lacki where she used the same Fake Tattoos of birds that I was planning to use. For the background, there was nothing better to start off with than Barry M Sky […] Read more

Dry Brush Pink Hearts | Love | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These dry brush pink hearts nails are two days late for the love prompt of 40 Great Nail Art Ideas. Everyone in our house has, or has had, flu. It’s an unhealthy place this week. I didn’t really fancy painting my nails today, but thought there wasn’t much point in getting this post up any […] Read more

Pale Peach with Lace Stamping | Twinsie Tuesday

These pale peach with lace stamping nails are to represent the romantic prompt for Twinsie Tuesday. I think they would be perfect wedding nails, and what’s more romantic than a wedding? The base is gel polish. I used Bundle Monster Love At First Sight, which comes from the I Do collection, which is a collection […] Read more

Pink “I Love You” Nails | Bundle Monster Mochi Stamping Station

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a quick post I made about the new Bundle Monster Mochi Stamping Station. I’ve now had a chance to try it out and have created my first manicure using it: some pink “I Love You” nails. First off, this stamper is huge. The stamping surface […] Read more

Purple Skittlette | Mix & Match | Twinsie Tuesday

The Twinsie Tuesday group is doing mix and match manicures today. I haven’t heard that term applied to a nails look before, so I am not entirely sure if I’ve got this right. To me, it sounds like it should be a bit of a skittlette: the match being the same or similar colours, and […] 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
