31 Day Challenge 2015 Day 1: Red

Traditionally the 31 Day Challenge happens in September – this is when everyone else did it. I too did it, after a fashion. I more or less kept up with the actual nail designing from day to day – I just didn’t manage to post any blogs on the subject. I’ve done too much lovely work to hide it all away though, so as of today I’m having my only little 31DC2015. I hope you don’t mind!

Quiz Clothing Dress Your Nails Competition

Quiz Clothing Dress Your Nails Competition

I’ve only posted once in November? No! What a ridiculous month it’s been!

If you’ve got a free weekend (I haven’t ­čśŽ ) then you might like to have little look at this competition by Quiz Clothing and Beauty UK – you’d better be quick though, because the entries close tomorrow!

One of my favourite ways to create nail art is to be inspired by pretty things. I posted a design back at the beginning of November inspired by a gorgeous Quiz Clothing dress I bought for my cousins wedding. Quiz Clothing agree this is a fabulous idea and are running a competition asking bloggers to be inspired by their beautiful dresses and create some gorgeous nails!

I quickly rustled up another Quiz Clothing inspired nail design to show you that it needn’t be complex in order to be gorgeous!

Quickie post! I found a great design by Lucy’s Stash and I thought I’d use some nail art pens I was given for my birthday to try and recreate it.

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 12: Stripes

Happy Friday! I hope you all have a fun filled weekend ahead of you! (And that not too many of you have to work – I remember working weekends, and it wasn’t always fun.) Today is the Stripey day of the challenge, and instead of go overboard, I have kept it simple. This is also the introduction of Moyra to my blog. Blog, meet Moyra. Moyra, meet Blog.

Lily Allen Week: The Aquilano.Rimondi Bra and Skirt

Alas, today is Friday and we have come to the final design of Lily Allen week. Tomorrow I’ll post a quick round up of all 5 posts and then it will be over. Luckily, I’ve saved my absolute favourite til last. I was very ambitious with this design and it’s one of the most complex things I’ve ever done! I went freehand for this one, mostly – and wow, how did it come out?

Life in Lacquer Nail Art Challenge: Inspired By Another Blogger

I haven’t managed to join in with all of the prompts in this challenge, but I really like this one! My favourite blogger is far and away Alice of One Nail To Rule Them All. I used a handful of her tutorials at the South West Blogger Meet to paint other people’s nails and now I’ve finally had a chance to do one for myself!

Life in Lacquer Nail Art Challenge: Blue

If you’re anything like me, you may find Monday makes you a bit blue. I’m totally pooped today from a busy weekend and I’m not quite sure what I’m doing with myself yet. Thankfully I have the Life in Lacquer Nail Art Challenge prompt for today to give me something to post about without needing to think too much!
