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.
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!
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.

It’s time to reveal what nearly 200 nail artists have been working on for our Maniswap Circle! This month we’ve focused on white and blue nail art designs in memory of Liam Kowal again. As a result, all our designs are blue and white, and some include a ribbon too.

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.
The fortnightly challenge is run by Angela and Natasha on Instagram. This time I was recreating Andrea’s plaid design. I know she didn’t like it that much, but the fox is so cute! It was based on a Kate Spade design, and I think it is perfect for Maniswap Circle in Lilac. Read More
I’ve seen photos of this design a few times and I think Bracelet Nails are going to be the next big trend in nail art. It involves a sheer or nude base, with thin, roughly horizontal lines near the tip, loaded with nail jewellery like a charm bracelet. This is my take on it! Read More
This design is one I’ve done before, but in a new colour combination. I’m part of a Facebook group called When Colours Collide, which has a fortnightly challenge to create …
