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.
