Abstract Art…

So I’ve seen a lot of random/abstract nail art lately on Instagram (e.g among others, ‘Ninanailedit‘ does the style quite often) and thought I’d give it a go. It was simultaneously freeing but a bit stressful , let me explain.

It was great to just do a blob here, a few spots there, add a line and then voilà. It was quick, in my opinion it looks quite cool and it wasn’t messy. There was no pressure to be ‘perfect’. Done.

But! It was knowing when to stop and also not getting too OCD about it. Is that enough spots? Do the lines have to all point in the same direction? Was that the right colour combination? And so on.

I’d definitely do it again as it was quite fun and I’d recommend for everyone to give it a go!

Little Prick…

So I own a few cute cacti and they deserve some kind of kudos since they do so well in little spaces where other plants don’t. Apart from watering them every now and then, the best I could do to honour them was to paint my nails! I doubt they actually appreciate this of course, but they make for some cute nail art anyway.

Giveaway win!…

The lovely Harriet over at ‘Shiori’ (a wonderful blog about all things Japanese which I have found fun, interesting and educational!) was holding a Giveaway and guess what, I won! The prizes were pretty cute, but I found the pen the most hilarious. It has carrots, a mustached mushroom, and a rabbit wearing a scarf – whaaat… I couldn’t resists making nail art out of it. Here’s the results!

The saying is pretty funny to ‘I will be your friend and you will…’, gotta love stuff like that. And couldn’t believe a phone charm was in the prizes, I seriously collect them not for my phone but for my 3DS;

Summer Randoms…

So I kind of wish I’d done the base coat as white, I think it would have made them stand out a lot more. And all those black looking speckles are actually a glitter coat which is obviously glittery in reality. (Why is glitter so hard to photograph!) I like the little cut-out hears, the polka dots and even the stripes. But the ring finger?… Yurk.  Opinions please? (I suppose these are kind of inspired by the nails I painted for Charlotte a few posts ago!)
