Basic Nail Tips - from nail color to useful tips to help your nails last longer

Inspired by a Movie Nail Design

I am so absolutely chuffed with this manicure. It’s my first proper freehand nail paint! Choosing a film was pretty tough, but Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory has been on the TV several times recently (the new one and...

Galaxy Nails

These may be the best nails I have EVER done. How cool are they?! I’ve seen loads of different versions of galaxy nails before and I was so excited to try my own. I couldn’t believe how easy they were...

Half moon manicure

So after everyone saying how easy this manicure is, I completely disagree. It took such an effort to get it looking good enough! For those who don’t know, you can achieve this effect with a bit of cheating. You know...

Inspired by a Song Nail Art

I was a bit worried about this one, but when my new Cheeky plates arrived this week gone I knew exactly what I was going to do. ‘God is a DJ’ is a song by one of my favourite bands...

Bumblebee
