Nails of the Month – November 2014

Nails of the Month

November 2014

So, once again I’ve worn quite a lot of nail varnish this month. Once again mostly thanks to my peel off basecoat.

The first nail varnish I wore was Lac Attack’s Beauxbatons Academy, one of my all time favourite nail varnishes. You can see my review of it by clicking here.

Nail Art – Royal Baby

On the Announcement that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their second child

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you may remember this nail art design I created when Prince George was born. With the announcement that he will be getting a little brother or sister, I decided that it was a good excuse to do some more nail art. So I came up with this simple look, which you only need to be able to create dots and lines to create.

The first colour I wore this month was Collection 2000 Hot Looks’ Blue Hawaii. I needed something quick drying and this was already out from when I used it last month.

Nail Art – Star Wars – Ewoks

Ewoks

So, I always knew I wanted to do some more Star Wars nail art, but I hadn’t really envisioned it being Ewok nails. I had toyed with the idea of Ewok nails but it wasn’t my first choice. But I am quite happy with how these turned out.

I went to stay with one of my closest friends, Lesley and introduced her to my blog. (Hi Lesley – I know you’ll be reading this at some point!). She’s one of the few friends who knows I keep a blog and she insisted on showing her husband some of my nail art. Nothing we showed him could beat the R2-D2 nails we showed him first and he was the one who challenged me to do Ewok nails. He also said that if I did he would take Lesley back to the lovely coffee shop we went to in Bakewell and get her a piece of the chocolate cake we were eyeing. And as this is scheduled to go live the day after Lesley’s essay is due to be handed him, you need to tell Meo he has no excuse not to take you! And I’m very jealous that I won’t get to try a piece of that cake!

Nail Varnish Picks – Spring 2014

Nail Varnish Picks

Spring 2014

As soon as March hit, I totally started wearing what I would class as spring nail varnishes. Although I do pretty much wear whatever colour I want at any time of year, but there are certain colours that I do just seem to wear at certain times of year. So I thought I’d share some of my favourite nail varnishes for Spring with you.

Nail Art – Titanic

Titanic

I’ve been wanting to do some more nail art for a while but didn’t have any solid idea of what I wanted to do and then inspiration struck. I’m a huge history fan, and today marks 102 years since the Titanic sank. The Titanic’s story has always fascinated me and when I’m in the mood I really enjoy the film. So I’ve come up with this nail art design, which I thought I’d share with you. I would class them as nails based on the film Titanic, but in terms of the appearance of the ship I’d say the film is almost completely accurate, it was something James Cameron was quite particular about.

Nails of the Month – March 2014

Nails of the Month

March 2014

As soon as March hits, I class it as Spring and I totally broke out the pastel nail varnishes and loved every minute of it. I’m still working the longer days with Thursday’s off and I’m still finding it difficult to paint my nails as much as I’d like. I also sleep at my grandparents at least once a week, so that gives me even less time as well.

The first manicure I did wear was to layer Nubar’s Lemon Lime Crush over Butter London’s Wellies. This has almost a neon quality to it and I’m totally loving Nubar’s new Crushed Candy collection.
