I know. It’s been a really long time since I’ve been here blogging, or even sharing my nails on Instagram. The truth is I’ve been dealing with some health challenges (physical, but it’s definitely influenced my mental health too), and as a result I’ve really lost my motivation to even do my nails most weeks, let alone blog about it. But a while back I did swatch some Unicorn Pee polishes for comparison purposes.
White marble backgrounds are basically a blogger’s staple at this point. But that’s for a reason, because it’s a gorgeous neutral to use as a backdrop in photos of products. I’ve recreated this pattern before using stamping, and this time I’m taking on hand painted white marble nail art.
I’m back, tentatively dipping my toe back into blogging. I’ve had a rough time over the last 18 months, so even doing my nails has been a struggle. There is a new Cirque Colors group on Facebook, where last week an inspiration photo of turquoise waves crashing on a pink beach was posted, so I gave it a go.
Are you a fan of the Marvel superheroes? I went to see the latest film this week. I prefer to leave it a little while after the release – not too long to dodge spoilers. But then I get to sit in luxurious space with no one in front of me! I created some Avengers Infinity War nail art to complement my visit…read on!
I’ve been having one of those weeks where I feel a bit blah. I’ve got no energy and I think I might be getting a cold. Do you ever feel like that? This week I revisited some old inspiration to create this Millefiori nail art based on artwork by Fabian Oefner.
Today I’m inspired by another semi-precious stone to create this Aventurine Quartz nail art. It’s a jewel that I hadn’t heard of, but I love this picture of it, so read on to find out more!
Welcome to the last of my three swatches from the Spring 2018 Neapolis collection. From Chanel Nuvola Rosa is a soft pink, and it definitely reminds me of strawberry gelato from Italy!
Although there is a fourth shade in this collection, it’s an orange leaning red which I couldn’t bring myself to buy. I have plenty of Chanel reds already! Check out Chanel Gitane – it’s not quite as orange-toned as Arancio Vibrante but it’s a good substitute.
This week I’ve got the second of three swatches of Chanel’s Spring 2018 collection. It’s a bright yellow, and if you like sunny colours, you’ll love Chanel Giallo Napoli. I also compare it to my swatch of Chanel Mimosa – it’s the battle of the yellows!
