Striping Tape Frenzy

6 Aug

I felt like I hadn’t done a proper striping tape mani for ages and hence these nails were born!  It literally took AGES to place the tape for these, and ages to take it off…so long that the polish got a little tacky and started pulling a bit with the tape removal so they’re not as neat as I would have liked.  I also gave up by the time I got to my pinkie and just whipped out the dotting tool!!

I know there’s a dotticure later on in this challenge but I couldn’t resist pulling out my dotting tools for this day of the challenge too!

This is a simple and fun look and I’ll be upset to take it off tomorrow!

My good old fall back mani!! Whenever I’m uninspired and just want something pretty on my nails this design always comes out!!  It’s so easy to do, and relatively quick and always gets lots of compliments!

These greens were still left out from my attempt at plaid nails so I picked them up again (I can’t resist a good green!).

Spring Fail

3 Apr

I really loved my Spring Mix mani that I wore for almost a week (unheard of I know!) so I wanted to use the same colours and try something similar, but different, which in my opinion is a bit of a nail fail!  I kept the majority of the nails really simple with just white dots on a coloured background but then went full out crazy on my thumb and ring finger with a fishtail mani.  I don’t think it works, I seem to be picking really weird colours to work together at the moment, maybe I need my eyes testing!

Spring Pastel Mix

31 Mar

I’ve been wearing these nails for a week and I’m going to be really sad to take them off tonight!  I just love the colours and the combination of dots and stripes, they’ve eased me into Spring very nicely!!

  • Index – Nails Inc – Onslow Gardens
  • Middle – I can’t for the life of me remember what polish this is but I’ll update when next to my stash!!

Black & White Mix

5 Mar

If you’d asked me a year ago I would have told you I hate black and white nails, that they don’t suit me and I wouldn’t wear them! Amazing what a difference a year can make! After doing my penguin nails the other day I was in a black and white mood so just randomly did this mani, not having a clue what I was going to do when I started out! I love these interweaving dotticures, always a favourite look of mine! I guess the thumb and index finger are kind of based on the waterfall mani idea!

Double Dots

21 Oct

I was feeling a bit miserable yesterday and so to cheer myself up I recreated one of my favourite mani’s ever!! I love this look, it’s so simple and easy to do and always looks really cool when it’s finished (IMO!).

I felt much happier after doing this, and even though I’m still feeling a little glum today I can just look at my nails and feel a little happier!!
