Big Brush Flowers

 Can you tell I didn't know what to title this post? At least it's catchy...ish! As is a common theme with my blog, I did these a while ago but hadn't got around to editing the pictures. These were inspired by @nailsbyharlig on Instagram. I really loved her easy-to-follow tutorial and couldn't resist creating some of my own!

Peach Daisies

Where has the sun gone?! It's back to being all rainy and miserable. I'm flying to Berlin tomorrow and the weather isn't looking much better there either! Anyway, enough weather chat, these nails are enough to brighten things up after all. I did these as a quick mani when I was struggling for ideas, and I wasn't 100% because they make me think of fried eggs a bit, but I like them enough to not hide them away in my deleted folder forever so I'll let you decide: eggs or flowers?

Multicoloured French

Hey everyone! Sorry for the recent radio silence, I’ve had A LOT going on, I don’t want to tell you anything just yet because I don’t want to jinx it (it’s not blogging related so I’m not doing the whole “oh I can’t tell you yet because it’s a secret” thing don’t worry!) but once it’s finalised I will probably not shut up about it. So enjoy the silence while it lasts! 

Today’s nails were inspired by someone I think... which is probably the vaguest thing I’ve ever said on here but I won’t lie - I painted these almost a year ago and I have no recollection of what made me do them! This blogpost is full of vague and unhelpful statements I’m sorry!

Negative Space Floral Studs

Do you ever just see a design on Instagram/Pinterest (or wherever) and instantly know that you have to recreate it? Because that's what happened to me with these nails. I saw these nails by Mikutsutaya and instantly fell in love. Mine are nowhere near as elegant as hers, but I still love how they turned out.

Gelish Royal Temptations - Review and Swatches

Hey everyone! Hope you enjoyed the super long Easter Weekend, I certainly made the most of it with a spring clean but also a few days of chilling out. I feel much more refreshed! 

Today I've got the gorgeous Gelish - Royal Temptations Collection* to show you. I've made no secrets of my love of Gelish, and this collection is no different. I really feel that the formula of the new bottles is so much better than the old, so much so that I've pretty much stopped using all my old bottles! Read on for my thoughts on the collection.

Hedgehogs In Love

Hey everyone! Are you as excited for the bank holiday weekend as I am? 4 days off! I can’t wait. I was planning on doing nothing but my diary is already starting to fill up with mundane tasks, hopefully I can find plenty of time for nails! 

This design was meant to be for Valentine's Day but I completely forgot to post them until it was too late, so instead I decided to do the complete opposite and instead wait long enough that they wouldn’t be associated with Valentine’s... and here we are!

Heard It On The Grapevine

Hey everyone! Can you believe it's almost the end of the month? March has gone so quickly, and I can't wait to have a long weekend for Easter! To celebrate what should be the start of spring (why is it still so damn cold?) I wanted to do some light and spring like nails. I wasn't really sure where I was going with these (which is often a theme with my designs if you hadn't noticed!) I just knew I wanted to do some grape nails, but they looked a bit plain with just grapes so I ended up adding some vines and it definitely made the design work 100% better. 

Fun fact: did you know grapes are a berry? And if you did know that... don't tell me and make me feel like an idiot for having to google it!
