Nautical Chevron's

I don't think I've ever done a nautical themed nail art before. That's rather remiss of me so after receiving some cool nautical themed water decals from the born pretty store, I decided to rectify the issue.

MCA Swifts nail art in support of the sister!

We cheer, we lead, we act like we're on speed! And so on and so forth. I did these nails in support of my sister's pom team, the MCA Swifts, for a competition. They match her cheer uniform, which is green, black and white...sparkles added because everyone needs sparkles in their life.

Blue Floating Manicure (Inspired by NailScope)

The other day I saw this beautiful nail art by NailScope. She had the concept of a floating manicure, where most of the nail is bare with a pop of nail polish in random geometric patterns. Nailscope's version was classy an matte, but I decided to go for something a little different and used a blue palette.

Polish Me Silly - Guilty Pleasures - Swatch

I haven't bothered to paint my nails in a few days. Just haven't been feeling it. I still can't be bothered to do any nail art so here is a really basic swatch of Polish Me Silly - Guilty Pleasures.

Go Nuts for Donuts! Nail Art

The only type of donuts I actually like are jam donuts. However the other day I saw some epic nails with the base mattified and the top left glossy to give the donuts a glazed look. So I decided to forgo my love of jam donuts and create a crazy glazed donut pattern.

80s wallpaper dotticure

Dots. Why are dots so difficult? Why aren’t the dots the same size even though I’m using the same tool? Clearly it’s a skill I need to work on but here is my hopeless attempt at a dotticure.

Purple and Blue Leopard Print

Going through my nail art the other day, I realised I haven't done leopard print nails yet. Leopard print nails are super simple to do, so I decided to pull out some of my untried nail polishes and have a play.

Happy Halloween - My Queen of Hearts Costume!

Although Halloween is officially over, I wanted to share with you the costume I made for fun. I've been following some amazing make up artists and special effects artists on instagram and have wanted to try some special effects for a while. Halloween provided the perfect excuse (even though I don't actually celebrate it) to have a play around with some concepts. So using a few tutorials, this was my costume, The Queen of Hearts.
