Glitter Mermaid Tail Nail Art Mint Green

Yes, I know this is another green manicure. I’ve honestly been trying to do something different, but this isn’t really my fault. This Mermaid Tail Nail Art is part of this month’s Maniswap challenge, and the prompt was mint green.

I based it on a design from Jane, who is known as Foxxy Nails on Instagram and has a YouTube channel too.

Amethyst Crystal Nail Art Smoosh Technique

In a very exciting departure, I’m writing about nail art that isn’t green!! I’ve been on a bit of a theme lately, so here’s something different.  Along with opal nails, trying to recreate nails that look like semi-precious stones has been a challenge. This Amethyst Crystal Nail Art uses a smooshing technique which worked really well to create the layers and stripes you see in this type of stone.

Chanel Spring 2017 swatches Emblematique Washed Denim Androgyne

I’m finally back with some new Chanel Spring 2017 swatches  and these posts are always really popular content here.  I thought that the colours they chose were more autumnal than spring-like, but Chanel have a new-ish creative director, so maybe that’s why.  The last few collections, like Summer 2016, were kind of unexpected shades, unlike some of the candy-inspired colours you expect at this time of year.

Gothic Nail Art with lace stamping freehand roses

This week’s challenge on Nail Art Nation was set by me and is Gothic-inspired nail art.  Deep, dark and mysterious! I chose to do Gothic Nail Art with lace and roses, and a thermal peek-a-boo black topcoat, which has just the right amount of glitter. I love this design, because the thermal top coat gives it such a changeable look. Read More

Swatch: Chanel Liquid Mirror 540 Holiday 2016

The last of three swatches from this Holiday collection is Chanel Liquid Mirror 540. It’s a classic silver chrome polish, but does it offer anything different to the chrome polishes we’ve seen before? Is it special enough to make you buy it?  There are lots of photos here to help you decide!
