So I actually took two days to do this nail art. I painted the mushroom silhouettes yesterday but they just didn’t look complete, something was missing as there was just too much empty space – less was not more in their case. Today I settled on painting some dots in hope that they looked like a swarm of fireflies but I suppose they could also be taken as fungus spores!
So today’s nail art was pretty simple and quick, inspired by all the mushrooms I saw during my fishing trip. None of which were actually the fly agaric mushroom, mainly black hoofs growing on the trees and little brown ones growing in-between the bracken and heather.
So my nails are non-existent at the moment. I broke two of them whilst I was fishing at the weekend, like right down to the quick – ouch! They’re so short I’m embarrassed to photograph them, and also a little scared to go near them with nail varnish remover they’re that raw feeling.
Anyway! I do ‘dabble’ in other crafts so thought I’d share a bracelet I made for myself. I had these cute ladybug and mushroom beads, and thought they’d look brilliant together will loads of flowers. It took me forever to complete, I honestly don’t know how many hours over how many days, but it felt like a long time. However! I’m super happy with how it looks; I think it’s cute, fun and summery.
(I used my phone to photograph it as my camera was out of charge, hence why they’re a little grainy!)
I’m an avid fish-keeper and love ‘touring’ new fish shops, I usually drag along my poor mum along for company. So while I made my bracelet I created her this little pair of earrings for her to wear when we visit them – just for a bit of fun really! (I actually don’t have my own ears pierced so I have to miss out!)
