Beautiful Butterfly?…

So I was in two mind as to whether to post these nails at first. When I first stamped them I sort of cringed at how cheesy they were – was it because of the butterfly itself, or was it the fact I’d placed it over two nails?… *shudders* But then I had a change of heart, because even though not to my taste there’s bound to be someone out there that likes them?… Anyone?…

Party Spiders…

So this design isn’t spooky at all! I decided to go for a more family friendly, party look in contrast with some of the more gory stuff I’ve been painting. I bet arachnophobics could even wear this design right?…

I used my natural nail colour, flecked with gold and silver foil then stamped some spiders on them, finishing the design off with random dots and a top coat.

S-Nails…

So I’ve already painted some sNail Art here, but never like this. I thought it would be super cute to use the teeny tiny shells I picked up from South Queensferry beach and use them as the snail’s shell for a 3D, impractical nail art design – and I think it worked! I don’t know what it is about snails but I seriously like them, any one else?

None of your Bees Wax…

So this didn’t come out quite as pretty as I hoped – I felt that the base looked too dark. Maybe it would have been nicer on a yellow and white sponged base or even a green? I don’t know. I’ll try it again.

I was happy with my bees though. They were so tiny and pretty hard to paint, I  felt a bit cross eyed afterwards. The honey comb structure was created using hexagons* from BornPrettyStore. (I’ve used them previously for this design where I tiled them over my nail.)

A bugs life…

So some folk don’t like bugs, I love them! I’ve even kept snails and stick-insects as pets in the past. I do however think they are appropriate for the Halloween season, they’re not called creepy crawlies for nothing. My favourite from this mani has to be the fly, I think its cute!
