It’s finally warm in the UK, spring is giving way to summer, apart from the past couple of days which were more like November! My summer dresses are out, and I want some bright, pretty nails to go with them! I had my eyes on plenty of summer polishes in yesterday’s best of nail polish post, so Picture Polish Orchid is perfect for right now.
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.
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’ve really been into my galaxy-themed swatches recently, and here’s another. Based on 2001: A Space Odyssey, this collaboration from The Nailista Shop is lovely. Picture Polish 2001 is a grey-blue scattered holo definitely reminds me of a far away place.
Last week’s challenge on NAN was half moons. I was having a bit of a block with nail art generally, and decided on this design the day after the prompt was posted. I quite liked how it turned out. But then forgot to post it, for so long in fact that the next prompt had already gone up. Doh! But if you are looking for a quick and easy way to create some Half Moon nail art, this is perfect.
I am a bit of a sucker for Picture Polish shades, and this is one I bought earlier this year. Picture Polish Merge is a beige creme with scatter holo particles. That means all the individual pieces make their own rainbow, rather than one big one across the nail. I started with a swatch, then added some nail art (of course) and then had to go a bit crazy with the hand positions to capture the art!
