Fire Obsidian nail art 

As part of my series inspired by semi-precious stones, I've been looking around for my next project. The photo (scroll down) really caught my eye, so I'm trying this Fire Obsidian nail art. It's an experiment in progress so I think I'll be coming back and trying this again.

Easy nail art matte navy blue stamped silver

Since I’ve been doing a lot of green nail art lately, I needed some outside colour inspiration. One of my Instagram friends Tanya suggested navy blue, one of her favourite colours.  For some quick and easy nail art matte navy blue is really chic, and very work appropriate.

Purple Mojave Turquoise water spotted nail art

I had been feeling like I’d really lost my inspiration and motivation lately. After joining in on a Bloggeration Chat on Sunday morning I had a look through my Pinterest board, and found some Purple Mojave Turquoise that I found really beautiful.

Gradient Stamping Spring Celtic Knot Design

I feel like I’ve really lost my nail art mojo lately. My full-time job is taking a lot out of me at the moment and I think there’s no space left for creativity.  Or energy left at the end of the day. I came up with this gradient stamping design because I wanted something with a little more interest than a straightforward stamped mani, which has kind of been my default lately.

It’s still quite simple and quick, and the gold flakes in the base colour show through delightfully.

Swatch: FUN Lacquer Ursa Major made with iparallaxe

This is FUN Lacquer Ursa Major named after a constellation also known as The Plough or The Big Dipper.

Perfect Neon Blue Polish: Cirque Rehab

I realised recently that I didn’t have a good neon blue polish. In fact I didn’t have a true neon blue polish at all.  Some of them were bright, but there was nothing that glows under UV light, which is the sign of a true neon. I asked around forums and groups for recommendations, but came across Cirque Rehab which it turns out is my Perfect Neon Blue Polish.
