MoYou Nails Review

Ever since I got my first stamping kit I knew stamping and I would be good mates. I mean once we got past screaming, crying, throwing things around the flat and adding new creative swear words to my already extensive dictionary. Yes, we got past that a looong time ago and now I really enjoy stamping so I was thrilled to be asked to review MoYou Nails stamping kit*.

There's always an alternative!

Believe it or not, this manicure was supposed to be a delicate picnic blanket kind of design. Erm... well something clearly didn't go to plan!

I have a sweet (hounds)tooth

You know, sometimes I forget that a design doesn't have to be super complicated to be interesting. I was rummaging through my stamping plates and found this beauty. Why I have never used this houndstooth stamp before I don't know. I've had it for ages! 


Waving bye bye

Before I started this blog my nails were never long. And I don't mean they were just short. There was nothing there, no free edge, nothing, because I used to bite my nails. Naughty! Now my nails are so long I wake up with them digging into my palms! Or I was.


Wilted Dreams

I don't think I've ever done a flower nail art. I love it on someone else but it's not really my thing, you know? For whatever reason I thought it was about time to give it a go and OMG I wish I hadn't! This is so beyond nail fail haha!

French Manicure

Can you believe that the last time I attempted a french manicure I was 15? I can't quite believe that was 10 years ago. I went through a phase where I loved this design so much. My school didn't allow nail polish (or make up or hair dye) so I was perfecting my french manicure every day after school so that when the weekend came my nails were on point!


Trippin': Dots

As promised here is another design I did while I was away visiting my boyfriend's family. I made the worst decision ever and attempted something super complicated first. I mean I don't know what was going through my head, I hardly took any tools with me so you can imagine how well THAT went. In the end I took it all off and went for something really simple, dots. I took me about 15 mins and all I needed was a dotting tool! 


Introducing: Mani Trippin'

I've just come back from a short trip to my boyfriend's family. You know when you're about to go away and there's a ton of things you need to do before? Like packing, emptying the fridge, getting the bins out and that sort of stuff. Packing that nice dress and oh look, it's stained, now you need to put the washing on. By the end of the day you're absolutely exhausted and all you want to do is sleep. Except, uh oh, you forgot to do a nice mani. Bollocks.


Sapphire Bling

I fancied something blue and then I saw a sapphire themed snapshot for Nail It! magazine and thought, why not? If you don't know what I'm talking about, Nail It! magazine features nail art designs in every issue. They come up with different themes and if they like your design you could be featured in the magazine! All you have to do is send a few details and a picture that matches the themes they are looking for. This time one of them was sapphire so I went for it. You never know, right?
