Day 16/31 and the prompt is: FAST FOOD NAILS! I honestly had no idea what I was going to do so I just did a random mix and match with some acrylic paint and some nail polish. I didn’t quite have the right colour for the buns. In hindsight, maybe I should have used acrylic paint and mixed the colours together until I achieved the…

Today’s prompt for the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge is FISH so fish nails it is! As I was trying to figure out what to do for my Fish Nails design, somehow this image popped into my head – a yellow base with simple mini pink fish. I love pink and yellow together. Bright for the summer. I started trying to hand paint mini fish with a…

The Color Purple, My Favourite Book

Probably one of my favorite books of all time is “The Color Purple” by Alice Walker (1982). The Color Purple won the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the National Book Award for Fiction and was later adapted into a film and musical. Taking place in mostly in rural Georgia, the story focuses on the life of African-American women in the 1930s addressing numerous issues…

There’s nothing like fresh watermelon in the summer. It’s probably my favourite summer fruit (tied with cherries of course). Today’s prompt for the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge is WATERMELON nails! I’ve done a few watermelon designs in the past: HERE & HERE but today I’ve done some new watermelon nails just for the challenge. I first saw this design by The Nailasaurus, and I loved them so much…

Nothing Beats Floral Nails

There is something about the sheer elegance and softness of floral nails that makes them so special. I always love the idea of buying myself freshly cut flowers every week…but somehow life gets in the way, and that doesn’t always happen so sometimes floral nails will have to suffice! I always love polishing floral nails. They make me happy, and pretty, so I was really excited…

Black and gold nails!!! What a great colour combination.  As it is summer, I didn’t want my nails to be too New Years Eve (if you know what I mean), so I added some white to the black and gold combination.For my black and gold nails I first started with some freehand gold (essie good as gold) and black (essie licorice) chevrons on a white…
