Halloween Nail Art #2 – BOO!

Hey guys!

Here’s the second post for my little Halloween themed nail art series. Today’s manicure is a ghost/boo themed nail art – again I’ve gone for cute rather than scary/gore for this Halloween theme!

Poinsettia-Style Nail Art

Hey guys!

I know poinsettia’s are Christmas-y flowers, but this wasn’t exactly a planned nail art (none of mine seem to be well planned or anything lately!) and it just happens to be that it ended up looking like a poinsettia…

I was actually planning on just leaving the pretty base colour for a plain manicure, but I’d recently received my new nail art pens from Bundle Monster (not impressed, long story!) and wanted to doodle a bit and see how they performed! Here’s what I ended up with:

Halloween Nail Art #1 – Pumpkins

Hey guys!

As it’s now officially October, I feel no guilt whatsoever about starting a little Halloween nail art series! I’ve never really done any Halloween nail art before, so this will be really fun for me! It’s also a great way for me to work on my freehand nail art. I won’t be posting tons and tons of them, but expect a couple over the next month. I hope you enjoy this little series and they inspire your own Halloween nail art creations!

Rose Quartz Gradient #52WPNMC

Hey guys!

A simple, but pretty one today – a glitter gradient over a nude base.

Nail Art Brush Experimentation

Hey guys!

I wasn’t quite sure what to call this look… Greeny sunflowers? Black sunflowers on a green base? Boring! Quick warning – this post is very picture heavy due to me being unhappy with the way I was capturing the colour/design!

So the design wasn’t planned – I was literally just playing with my new nail art brushes on a lovely, clean, green base and this emerged. It looks kind of like a sunflower to me!

Autumnal Colours! + New Brushes

Hey guys!

Sorry for the little gap – I’ve been working SO much lately and I am exhausted! I have a stress-triggered stomach condition and the amount of hours I’ve been doing has set it off into a flare-up so any time off work has been spent relaxing rather than writing posts, sorry! In three weeks my working hours will drastically reduce from 50+ to around 12ish so it’ll be a huge relief, and I’ll have plenty of time for nail-painting and nail-blogging… YAY!

Anyway – to today’s nail art! I’ve been craving Autumn ever since we hit September, but the weather seems to be doing a U-Turn and it’s SO hot again here in the UK! So humid, foggy, hot and hazy! Whilst I love the sun, I am ready for the chill in the air, bulky jumpers, cardis and all the lovely, nostalgic comforting things that come with Autumn! So I vented my Autumn frustrations in this mani.
