31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 16: Geometric

We’re over halfway there! And we get a new prompt!

My design for today feels both spurious and not well executed. I nearly trashed it and started again. The trouble is, once you’ve spent ages on something you just want to post it anyway – this challenge is so fast that there isn’t too much room for perfectionism!

I feel like there aren’t really many things you can do with Rainbow as a theme. As such, I think I’ve used some artistic license here. But I like the results, whether or not you think they satisfy the Rainbow prompt…

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 3: Yellow Nails

I’m back from London! Kate Bush was INCREDIBLE. What a privilege it was to see her! I did special nails which I’ll show you later in the week!

Barry M brought out their new collection of Autumn inspired Gellies just a few weeks ago, and I got my hands on all six of them on Monday night. I couldn’t resist using one today: a fabulous burnt yellow called Mustard:

Nails on Show: South West Blog Social 2014

Nails on Show: South West Blog Social 2014

Warning: this post is VERY picture heavy!

When I heard that Jodie and Albertine were organising a blog social for the South West I was thrilled – I really enjoyed the social I went to last year. Alas, I was the only nail blogger at that event, so I contacted Jodie and asked if I could run a Nail Art Station. The idea was to bring along some polish and some bling and show people what our glorious little world is all about. I recruited help from She Sells Seashells, who sent me some fabulous supplies to play with, and Bita from B-Nails gave me a hefty discount on her fabulous wraps, for those less keen on making their own art. I brought along a decent selection of polishes and my own little trinkets and I set up next to deLush Cosmetics Studio, who were already busy doing Jodie’s make up when I arrived.

All the essentials: polish, brushes, striping tape, nail wheels, nail files, dried flowers…

Mad About Ewe

I’ve had this slightly ridiculous design in my To-Post pile for months and months and I don’t know what’s taken me so long. Without further ado, I bring you SHEEP.
