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.

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.

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.

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.

Easy stamping holographic St Patrick’s Day nail art

I am really feeling all the green shades at the moment, so I didn’t really need the excuse of St Patrick’s Day for this design. I was reminded about this super bright green holo polish I had, and added a little stamping to make this St Patrick’s Day nail art.

Who’s ready for spring? I certainly am, I can’t wait to leave the cold weather and never-ending rain behind.  This design brings all the colours of spring together, with its double-stamped leaf pattern.  I was so happy with how this turned out, and I took so many photos… This is a really image-heavy post, but be patient so you can see all the gorgeousness of this Leafy Green Nail Art.

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. Here’s a little known fact about me: at school I did my science exams a year early, so in my final year I did a GCSE in Astronomy! It was very cool, with a few practical projects as well.  Read More
