    MoYou London Earrings Contest, Entry 1 Nail Stamping

    Adding these here for posterity – my MoYou London Earrings Contest, Entry 1 Nail Stamping. This was the entry that won me a voucher (yay!) and what a nice surprise. Thought I’d missed out given it originally ended on the 30th Dec 2018 (after being changed from the 23rd Dec). But was changed again to the 6th Jan 2019 and

    DISCO BALL New Year’s Eve Nails 2019

    DISCO BALL New Year’s Eve Nails – these are the nails I did for NYE 2019! 🎉🎉 I used metallics in a gradient, with diamond glitters to represent a shiny disco ball. They were placed individually and weren’t the most uniformly cut pieces, but I persisted as I liked the colour payoff.   The white nails were going to have

    Freehand Xmas Holly Berries in Picture Polish

    HAPPY CHRISTMAS 🎄🎅🎁 (to all who partake)!! These are my simple Xmas Holly Berry nails – I was having a Picture Polish fest and used several shades in their range.

    Festivus Fingernails 2018

    Hey hey! It’s Festivus time! Festivus Fingernails 2018, to be precise! Well I’m a day late and a dollar short, but it is that time of the year and we can’t forget the non-Christmas types now, can we?   I even created a foil Pole symbolic of Festivus customs (see below), adorned with a crystal to create the “i” in the

    YOU’RE SUCH A SNOWFLAKE – Snowflake Nails

    Back with a Winter warmer. I called this one: YOU’RE SUCH A SNOWFLAKE ❄️❄️❄️ Sure, it’s seasonally inappropriate in places where Summer reigns, but each season warrants an obligatory Snowflake nail design – no matter what the climate. White Christmases are the best! Was going to add flakies, but couldn’t bend to get them out, but I combined matte &
