Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer by Gustav Klimt nail art

I’m always looking for inspiration, and I have had this MoYou London plate for ages, which has elements of Gustav Klimt’s artwork.  The Art Nouveau artist was influenced by Byzantine artwork and mosaics, and his golden phase works are most familiar to me.  I created this Klimt nail art based on the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, which is one of his most famous.

Lace nail art inspired with Wingz

Something a bit different for you today! I was sent a pair of Wingz for review by Sarah, and I chose a lovely scalloped lace three-quarter length sleeve design.  I created some nails to match of course – lace nail art inspired with Wingz!

If you haven’t seen Wingz before, they are essentially sleeves that you can add to an outfit to give your a little more warmth or coverage.  This lace design has been great for me, particularly when the air con gets a bit too ferocious.

Graffiti Hearts stamping nail art

I’m still catching up on sleep after a busy few weeks, and whenever I’m short on time I turn to stamping to create detailed nail art designs quickly. For this Graffiti Hearts stamping nail art I was inspired by Miss Sock who did something similar over a watermarble base.

Monarch Butterfly nail art with stamping and freehand

I was a bit stumped for a design to try this week, and then I remembered that I'd bought a new plate with butterfly wing outlines on it that was so far untried. I decided to recreate some Monarch Butterfly nail art using some orange holo polishes.
