Over Christmas I was getting really frustrated with breaking off corners and a couple of nails starting to break really low. In a fit of pique, I cut them off really short and this is the result… I needed some nail art to remind me that spring is on the way – this Leaf Print nail art is just the thing!
Something a bit different for you today! I was sent a pair of Wingz for review by Sarah, and I chose a lovely scalloped lace three-quarter length sleeve design. I created some nails to match of course – lace nail art inspired with Wingz!
If you haven’t seen Wingz before, they are essentially sleeves that you can add to an outfit to give your a little more warmth or coverage. This lace design has been great for me, particularly when the air con gets a bit too ferocious.
The events in Manchester last week really shocked me. The audience for an Ariana Grande concert are young people and children, their parents, so it felt particularly callous to me. It’s part of my job to react and deal publicly with these sort of things. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a serving police officer or anything, but I did spend the whole day working on reacting professionally to the bombing, so when I got home all the emotions got to me at once. I decided to add a Worker Bee for Manchester to my nails, to show my respect and support in my own way.
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. I put my mind to recreating it as nail art, and I’m so happy with the results.
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.
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.
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.
I had the chance recently to do a maniswap with TaliaLouise on Instagram. This Neon Love nail art design is from way back (and much copied) and it’s a great design. It was also what inspired me to go looking for a new, true neon blue polish.
