I thought I would blog about something besides jewellery/crafty stuff. Although I suppose this is a little crafty!
Over the past few months I have become a tiny bit obsessed with nail art.
It all started when I discovered how to do leopard print nails, via Gem's blog. She uses liquid eyeliner when doing hers, which I started using at first, but now I use my models own nail art pen, which I find easier to use, and works better for me.
Another thing I discovered recently [after I had ordered some dotting tools on ebay, grr!] was that for dots you can simply use the end of a kirby grip. Just bend the grip carefully, splodge some nail polish onto a piece of paper, dip the grip in and apply it to the nail.
I also love konad, which is nail stamping and another way to get great designs on your nails.
My brother's girlfriend has caught the nail art bug too, I think - I did her nails leopard print for her at Christmas:
My friend also gave me over 20 nail art pens [more to come too, she bought a load of them and doesn't use them so decided she would give them to me!] so I've given Jenni a couple so she can get her nail art on!
There are a couple of other designs I've tried out, but I'm not going to cram in loads of photos.
I am currently waiting on some rhinestones, so I can bling my nails up! I've been waiting for nearly two weeks, but the seller has emailed me and says she will send me a replacement lot today, so hopefully they will turn up soon!
I may write more about nail art in future posts - who would like to see this?!
I'll leave you with some gorgeous images - all taken from
