These are some of my older designs - not really original stuff, mainly inspired by the brilliant bloggers that I follow (I'll get round to listing them asap), and photographed on my camera phone (gasp - a total no-no, I know). I hope you enjoy them, try not to focus too much on the irregularly shaped nails, sad and thirsty cuticles and lack of post paint tidy up! 

My first foray into dotting - rainbow dots!

P-p-p-p-pick up some penguins! 
Gah - blurry! I loved this design, my first attempt at some freehand art
on the focus nail. Wobbly, but it was a start.  

A (slightly garish) fishtail braid, successfully
completed thanks to the excellent tutorial at
Lucy's Stash
This was a tape mani inspired by
the Nailside zigzag mani.

The only way I can describe these is 90's MTV background/fruit salad. I honestly can't think of a suitable name, but I was so happy with how these turned out. 

My nails for Kendal festival. 
My other hand for Kendal festival - bonkers!


  1. These are all so brilliant! I'd love to follow your blog, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that? Wonderful designs :)

  2. Thank you, I thought the same thing about your designs. Doh - I'm new to this blogging stuff, I'll try and figure it out asap:)

    1. Don't worry, I'm a newbie too and did exactly the same thing! Someone pointed out to me that you have to add the 'Followers' gadget to your blog in the Layout tab, I think that's the easiest way for people to follow :D

    2. Thanks, have managed to add the Bloglovin button, but I was tipsy and now can't remember what I did lol:)
