Essential Nails Design 3…

So this design was surprisingly challenging. I found it tricky to be confident enough to do a smooth, tapering sweep as I started off too wobbly and shy. I was also finding it tricky to sweep from left bottom corner to top right as I’m left handed, therefore I couldn’t get the correct wrist action going on. Once I started to sweep right bottom corner to top left I started to find it much easier. However I’m not sure if that counts as copying the design correctly, I mean technically it’s the same, but flipped which means it isn’t the same… eeeekk.

Autumn Blanket…

So this design was actually inspired by my recent trip to Glasgow. We were on a sushi and cinema date, but what caught my eye were all the amazing shop displays for their Autumn Collections. I can’t remember exactly what shop I saw this colour palette in, as it amalgamated with all the Mexican blanket-esk things I was seeing along the way – resulting in an ‘I’m a bit squiggly as I was done free-hand’ design.

Girly Grass…

So I was planning on painting some tiger stripes, as I wasn’t really in the mood or focused enough to do anything exciting. My mood resulted in some messy stripes so I changed it to being this kind of messy, grassy looking thing – almost like some sort of weave too? I think I quite like it though!

Tiger Teal…

So my mum and I went to Blackpool for a day trip. We obviously needed to have our nails painted, so I let my mum chose the colours to mix things up. I really liked how her nails turned out, but I didn’t really like mine – they reminded me too much of the Cancer Research logo (which wouldn’t be a problem if I was trying to raise awareness for the charity but). I also let her name them which was hilarious, she shouted about a million different ideas at me, some were absolute stoaters, before  settling on ‘Teal Tiger’ and, ready for this, ‘Blue Candy Burst’ for mine. Whaaat?…
