Summer Nights

Don't panic! I'm still here! I've just been very lazy with the blogging lately. Who wouldn't be with the weather we've had? And to celebrate here are my "Summer Nights" nails.

Shiggs got her nails did.

Just a short little post to show some nails I did for my friend Sophie at the weekend! Unfortunately I was very drunk when I took these pictures so I couldn't get a very good angle.

Meet Mr Moggy!

Miaowwwwwwww. Meow? I'm not sure. Well anyway check out my moggies. One of which went a tad wrong looking like he's taking a cat nap and the other looks like a fox. Bless 'em.

Cups With Cakes In... What Are They Called Again? Oh Yeah... Cupcakes.

Oh heyyyyyy. I'm a bit disappointed with these pictures, the nails look better in person but they were a really quick effort.

You Didn't Make The Cut... I'm Sorry. NAIL FAILS.

Why I'm doing this is beyond me. I'm pretty much showing you all the nails I thought were either imperfect, didn't have a good photo/enough photos of or were just too plain crappy to blog. I have however seemed to come to a bit of a mental block with manis, I think some of which may be due to the new purchase of my nail trolley which is bloomin' impossible to lug about. If I wanna do my nails in the living room, it's alllllllll the way upstairs... And I simply cannot be bothered to make the trips up and down BECAUSE I'M LAZY.

I See Pride! I See Power!

Hey Interweb friends! It's been a while! I know, I know... I'm sahhhhhhrrrrryyyyyyyyyy! Here's a little treat to get you back into the swing of things though... Is it a treat? I don't know... None the less I'm back... Eminem style... Or maybe Arnie style? Or maybe even just Jess style... Alright stop.

...Hammer time?

I Like To Go To The Discotec

Hi interweb friends. How are you all on this fabulous bank holiday? I am unfortunately in bed poorly and not through alcohol abuse! Who would have thunk it? Anyway over the weekend it was a friend's birthday and my last weekend in Devon before I move to Oxford tomorrow! So rave themed nails seemed only appropriate... (Aside from the fact I only managed to stay in the pub until 11.30pm before having to be taken home. Fail.).

Teal... Nails? Yeah I don't know what to call these.

Today I stumbled upon, Stumbleupon! It took up the majority of my day, which was fun. Anyway on my scope out for some inspiration I found something that made me come up with these.

Nail Equipment AKA The Box Of Glory!

I don't know about you but I'm always interested in taking a little gander at other peoples' nail bits and bobs and storage compared to my own. My stuff is an absolute shambles at the moment and doesn't even nearly fit all my polishes and accessories in. I've been searching far and wide for the perfect nail storage system for weeks with absolutely no luck. Here is what I'm doing at the moment. 

Cartoon Nails

Oooohhhh eeeeee, oooo ahhh ahh, ting tang, waller waller bing banggg! ...Get it? ... 'cause they're The Cartoons... Never mind.

Matte Maroon Mate.

Oh my, just about everything I'm wearing at the moment seems to be surrounded by maroon. I don't know why I just can't seem to get enough. Everything from my dresses to my shoes, my fur coat to my scarf, it's got to the point where I find it hard to put an outfit together without there being at least three maroon items... Why not have it on my nails too I suppose?

It Feels So Good, In The Bayyyy.

Considering this weekend it's been lovely and toasty and sunny outside I figured the people of Torquay would appreciate these nails. A little bit of sun goes a long way in The Bay and it inspired me to show a bit of love for the TQ1!

Oh A Blog Post! I didn't see you there.

Whenever I walk into Topshop at the moment, I seem to be surrounded by camo jackets. Don't get me wrong I friggin' love them but can't help thinking how unstylish I was when I was 14 and wearing an actual army jacket?! I think everyone just needs to admit I was way ahead of my time. ...Rather than calling me a goffick.

W'at Er Melon To Do?

Since I've got those Models Own nail art pens I literally cannot stop with the freehand nail art! I only got 3 colours but seriously they have taken over my manis.

Merry Egg Day!

Merry Egg Day to all!

Do The Funky Giraffe!

 Time for a bit of fun! A crazy set of giraffes that kind of look like cows.

Goodbye Acrylics! Hello Grunge!

Eek! Just look what I went and did! I removed my acrylics and have opted for incredibly short little stumps of natural nails!

Pin me up Purple!

I won't lie, these are probably my favourite nails to date, including new additions. There are two different manis here but they're very similar so I'll post them in one.

To Infinity... And Beyond!

Hello my lovelies. You may have noticed a lack of myself getting blogical lately, reason being is my lack of keyboard, or at least an acceptable amount of working keys on my keyboard. It's incredibly difficult to blog with only the characters "9" and ">" or an on screen keyboard. Luckily I'm on the downstairs PC which is rather frustrating because its temperamental behaviour. None the less I'M BACK!

Cath Kidston Inspired

Eeeeeeek, favourite patterns coming up! Cath Kidston inspired!

Birdhouse Love

As you can see I've started trying to name my manis with 'edgy' and unique names, it's a bit lame though really let's face it. If anyone can think of better mani names hit me up! (Oh God, did I just say "hit me up"? My life is such a cringe)

Girly Pearly (All credit to The Nailasaurus!)

First of all I must say this is pretty much a carbon copy of The Nailasaurus's Girly Pearly mani but obviously mine is nowhere near as good! I'm not trying to steal anyones' ideas I just loved this mani so much, Sami has been my ultimate inspiration and what has got me obsessed with nail art so when first starting out I tried out some of her designs. I would give her a mention if I could work out how to do it but alas, after a good three minutes of trying, I have given up. None the less, Sami if you ever see this, THANK YOU!


3D/Kawaii Nails

Drum roll please; it's time for my second post!

Looking back at this picture, it seems like ages ago and a real learning curve since I tested out this look but I thought I'd share it because it's a little out of the ordinary. I believe this sort of look is known as Kawaii Nails (don't ask me how to pronounce it), a style of  Japanese 3D acrylic nail art.

Pink and White Acrylics

Hello everyone!

And welcome to my lovely new blog where you can hopefully see my nail abilities grow!

Please see my Introduction and About Yours Truly pages to learn a little about my background and what I'm doing.

So let's start with my second attempt at pink and white acrylics. I'm actually pretty proud of these because barring my ring finger (which I tried a different method on) all the smile lines seem pretty smooth, which the first attempt definitely didn't.
