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!
My latest design for Maniswap Circle really takes me back to when I did loads of freehand nail art. This Freehand Flowers and Lines design inspired by Sezies Nails (Sarah) is based on a dress, and was originally created in white, pink and black. I used the Maniswap prompt colours of brown, white and red to create a beautiful Valentine’s Day design.
