Argyle Nail Art for Avon

Hey everyone! Hope you're all having a good week so far. I'm feeling quite productive this week. Even though, admittedly, I took the fact that it was a snow day today a bit too far and just sat around in my pajamas all day, I did manage to get a bit of work done, and I hope to have my second essay finished tomorrow so I can finally get started on my dissertation research.  Today's nails are something a bit brighter, I've been using a lot of dark colours recently, except for in my snowflake nails, and I felt like it might be time for a change! Argyle wasn't something I'd tried before, so when Avon suggested it as a possible design idea I jumped at the opportunity to try something out of my comfort zone (I hate using a striping brush!), and I don't think it went too badly.

Green Glitter Bows

Hey everyone! Hope your Blue Monday hasn't been too blue! I worked this morning and finished my essay this afternoon so I've had quite a productive day. I'm going to try and do my nails before I go out in an hour so fingers crossed I manage to do it! Today's design is one I've done before, but it's so simple and effective that I've wanted to do it again for a while. Luckily we decided to do it at nail art society a few weeks ago so I got to teach everyone how do to do it. I have a tutorial here for those of you who also want to learn.

It's SO COLD

Hey everyone! Its been a bit of a mix of a week for me, filled with essay writing, working, and ... my 21st birthday! Yesterday was my birthday, and I had such a good day, I'll be continuing the celebrations this weekend (and the weekend after) but right now I'm going to stay holed up inside my house because it's absolutely freezing outside... literally. There's also crazy winds at the moment which make me wish I didn't have to drive a 60 mile round trip to work every day (which weirdly enough I don't usually mind!). I thought therefore, that it would be a good time to post these snowflake nails I created just before christmas using the LE Victoria Beckham Nails Inc polishes. I'm lucky that I've got a few things to post still from before christmas, because I haven't actually painted my nails in over a week! I know, shock horror. I just haven't had any time, all my free time is taken up writing essays and my dissertation. But I made a resolution that I'm going to get better at blogging, and that definitely includes painting my nails more often, so I'm hoping to find the time to get back into it once I move back to my uni house.

Simple Red Carpet Nail Art

Hey everyone! Incase you hadn't heard, the Golden Globes are tonight, so I thought I'd do some quick and simple red carpet nails in collaboration with Avon to show you that you don't need to do a complicated design to be red carpet ready. Sometimes less is more! All you need is a dotting tool (or even just a hairgrip) to create these. 


What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

Winter Plaid for Avon

Hey everyone! Today I have some simple plaid nails to show you. I know these nails are a bit christmassy, especially because of the colours, but I wanted to post them on here anyway because I never got a chance before Christmas. Sorry that it's such a quick post today, I have to be up in 6 hours for work!

Red Daisies

Hey everyone! I feel like I've been posting a lot of dark coloured designs recently so I decided it was time for something a bit more fun. These are some daisy nails that I created at nail art society a few months ago but completely forgot I had photographed until I was digging around in my folders earlier, so they seem a bit summery probably but it's always good to have a few bright designs here and there!

Disco Squares for Barry M + Tutorial

Hey everyone! I hope you're all having a good 2015 so far, I'm feeling motivated so far but we all know how often new years resolutions fall through. My resolutions are to work harder on my blog, work harder at uni, and to make the most of every opportunity I get this year. Can I stick to them? We shall see! Today's nails are some simple glitter squares I created for Barry M, and I've also got steps at the bottom of the post so you can create them too.
