From The Vault: Double Half Moons

So in amongst working on the 31 Day Challenge for this year (I realise everyone else did this in September, but life has a way of not giving me a break and I’m still doing it!) I’ve been reorganising my picture folders. It turns out I have a lot of really cool designs I never got around to posting. I’m not in the habit of wasting work so I’ll be sharing them with you anyway! Here is one from last year’s 31 Day Challenge that never made it as far as the blog. The theme was Half Moons.

Born Pretty Store Stamping

Born Pretty Store Stamping

I’m on a bit of a stamping kick lately. I’ve bought so many stamping plates over the last several months that I’m not sure how I’ll ever get through them all! One brand I’d never tried before until recently is Born Pretty Store. Their prices are crazy cheap and I was a bit iffy about whether the quality of their plates would be any good. Well this just in: they’re FAB.

Models Own Sweet Shop: (French) Pear Drops

Models Own Sweet Shop: (French) Pear Drops

When Models Own latest range came out at the end of July, I was right in there – I am a huge fan of the Fruit Pastel collection of scented polishes, and the idea of traditional sweet scents sounded fantastic! I picked up all 5 of the Sweet Shop collection… and then they sat in my room while I didn’t manage to find any time to paint my nails. Slowly but surely I’ve been working on a little set of designs that showcases each of their special features, and I’ll be posting one every day this week! Better late than never, right?

I’m starting off with Pear Drops:

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 5: Blue Nails

This has to be one of my favourite designs of late. I can’t claim any credit for it – I spotted the idea on Bite No More the other day and knew it would be perfect for this prompt!
