Peach Roses | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I’m a little late in posting these peach roses as it has been back to school for my son this week, and that has meant I’ve been running around with lots to do to get him sorted and ready. These nails are for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group, where the colour prompt was […] Read more

Multicoloured Floral Nails | Hippie Flower Power Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These multicoloured floral nails, reminiscent of “flower power”are for the festivals / hippie travels prompt for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. I wasn’t sure at first what direction to take with this prompt. Admittedly, I was born in the year the term “hippie” became widespread, the year of the Human Be-In and the […] Read more

Patchwork Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

The 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group theme this time around is “nude and colour”.

Summer Gradient | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

This is my summer gradient for the summer prompt of the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. I had all but caught up last week and was going to post this last weekend, but then my son decided to get a fish bone stuck in his throat. That led to 26 hours in three different […] Read more

Pink Mosaic Stripes | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

The 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group is doing hot pink and my personal prompt was mosaic or stained glass, so I have some pink mosaic stripes. Not all the polishes I used are hot pink, but then when you’re doing mosaic, you need lots of different colours. My first attempt at mosaic nails began […] Read more

Baby Boomer Music Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

The prompt a little while ago (yes, I’m late again!) for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group was music. I stamped some musical notes onto a gradient to create these baby boomer music nails. The base is a French tips gradient of nude and white, to create “baby boomer” nails. Baby boomer nails were […] Read more
