Purple Stamping

I haven't posted in a while now, I have a job at Starbucks and we can't wear nail polish :( However I did just get some new supplies in so I should have some new posts soon :)
For now here's an older photo until I can do something new:

It's just a simple Sally Hansen purple with a white flower from my Konad stamping set. 

I have a bunch of plans for future designs, so I'll try to post again soon!

Splatter Nails

I did my attempt at splatter nails today on a red base that I was wearing yesterday. It took a while to figure out, but I am pleased with the results :)

The picture isn't very clear, I do need to look into getting a new camera. There are silver, gold and black splatters and this was a very messy process considering I was flicking polish from a brush. But it is something I would do again, it's a fun look.

KONAD red and white stamping

When I was doing my nails the other night I ended up with just about a different design on each hand because I had hit a nail art block. I had no ideas, and every design I did just didn't seem right. So I pulled out my old KONAD stamping set and after a few tries came up with a style that would work.


Yes those are my fuzzy pink pyjamas in the background, along with my pink kindle case :)

I also tried this with a black base and while it looked great it was a bit too harsh. As you might be able to see on my thumb the design isn't connected all the way down. That's because it didn't fit across my nail so I stamped just the end part of the design as close as I could to the bottom.

I did this design Saturday night and it's already starting to chip so I may have a new post up soon :)

Galaxy/TARDIS nails

I thought I'd start off my blog with my favourite nail art to date, galaxy nails with a TARDIS accent.

This was done using Cutepolish's tutorial and a small brush to create the TARDIS. It didn't take very long, although I did discover that my living room doesn't have enough light to do my nails in, so I'll stick to my bedroom.

My goal with this blog is to post a new nail art design at least once a week, since my nails do chip fairly easily that shouldn't be too difficult. I may also post some step-by-step tutorials in the future. I hope you all enjoy!
