Starfish Nail Art

Hey,

Today I have decided to recreate one of my old designs.  I remember when created this design first time round I fell in love with it and was so pleased with it, so I thought why not recreate it.  I must say after comparing it with my first design, there isn't really much change or improvement, which is slightly disappointing.  I will share a photo here of a then and now for you to see.  It hasn't shown up much in the photo, but I love the glitter I used on top of the blue, it really glistens in the sun, and is like the shine on the sea.

Yellow & Pink Rose Nail Art

Hey,

Here is another summer design which I love!!  I always love a floral/rose design as they're so easy to create and versatile.  I thought the pink and yellow looked really nice together.  I am struggling with thinking of designs to do next, so please leave comments below of what you'd like to see me create next.

Despicable Me 3 Nail Art

Hey,

So last week I went to see the new Despicable Me film, and I couldn't resist doing the nails.  I am so so pleased with how these turned out, and I had so much love both on Instagram and in public.  People asking me in the shops about them, which was so sweet.  This design did take some hours to do, but it was worth it!!  The only issue I have, is that every time I use yellow nail polish, it stains my nails!!  I am sure when I am on holiday, the sun will bleach them. I hope you love these as much as me!!

Birthday Nail Art

Happy Birthday to me!! (Well it was my birthday on the 28th June)

I thought I'd create this gorgeously cute birthday cake as an accent nail.  I love it!!  Unfortunately I was really quite unwell on my birthday this year, so I didn't particularly enjoy it, but never mind.  I am now 26!! Where is the time going, it's madness!!  Every year seems to be slipping by so quickly.  I remember always being told as a little girlby my mum that birthday's aren't so exciting when you get older, but I refused to believe it and always said no, they'll always be exciting!  Well, as usual, my mum was right.  Birthday's just aren't the same anymore :( Less presents, less cards, and just the fear of getting older and not having done things!!  I am sure there are many people out there that do still enjoy their birthdays!  Let me know if that's you!

Cactus Nail Art

Hey,

I've wanted to do cactus nail art in ages, but have never really had the confidence to do it, as all the designs look so complicated.  Then I came across this design by Peachypolish and I loved it and thought I would give it a go.  I am really pleased with how it turned out, and love the colour I chose to use too, which is like a olive green colour.  Let me know your thoughts.

Tropical Flicks Nail Art

Hey,

As usual, I am a bit behind with my blogging so this design was done back on the 19th June, but hey ho.  I saw this design by @jennyclairefox and I had to recreate it.  I thought it looked so simple, yet effective and perfect for summer as the colours used are really tropical.  All I used for this design was a thin striping brush, and a variety of summer colour nail polishes.  This could totally be changed up with any colours at all - so let me know if you recreate this with any different colour combo's.

Father's Day Nail Art

Hey,

It's Father's Day today here in the UK.  I was unlucky and lost my Dad when I was 8, which was devastating at the time, and I still remember it like it was yesterday.  There isn't a day when I don't think about him, especially when things happen in my life that I would want him to see and be proud of, like when I got married.  I do however, have the best Step-Dad who really looks after me, and treats me like I am his own, which I am so so grateful for.

So I created this manicure in memory of my Dad and in celebration of my amazing Step-Dad.  What a better design to do than ties, which most men wear to work (beside's my hubby who is lucky enough to wear what he likes to work!)

I only painted this design on one of my hands, which is very unusual for me, because I wasn't too pleased with how it turned out, so I didn't see the point on doing it on the other hand too.  Let me know your thoughts.

I hope you spoiled your Dad or Step-Dad too!!
