    Hand-painted Spring Florals on Nude Nails

    Do you like floral nail art? I do! Here’s the latest #handpainted flowers mani I did 🌸🌻 Cos it’s been a while & it was high time to change that! I’m hoping to get more time to do freehand art.

    Minimal Mani with Negative Space – MoYou London Contest #2

    What do you think – yay or nay on this one?? To continue with the Ultra Violet stamping frenzy, I went a little minimal. I love a minimal mani. I am currently making a concerted effort to live more minimally, as one does seem to collect things over time. So parting with the unloved, no longer needed things comes under

    Melted Chocolate Fluid Art for Valentine’s Day

    I kinda get sick of doing the stock standard cutesy, expected stuff for events and occasions sometimes, so I went a bit leftfield with this Valentine’s Day mani. And did Melted Chocolate Fluid Art nails. I used Sinful Colors Hypnotic Transforming Top Coat called Redrum. Beats spraying a massive can of silicone spray! Even if it is not as versatile
