Hmmm sweet!

This is for nailartjan, a nail art challenge that most of you nail ladies will be familiar with on ig….I’m determined to finish this one! Why is that everytime I decide I’m going to do it I have a million & one things crop up!
This one is sweets hmmmm, a subject close to my heart but even closer to my stomach…..πŸ’‹

Oh it’s a girly moment!

Quick & easy block colour nails….I had to use striping tape for this mani which I don’t normally like :/ I tend to have it stuck everywhere & to everything…..but my striping brushes have miraculously vanished (arghhhh).
I used Essie We’re in it Together & China Glaze Hang-Ten Toes, I adore these polishes, this was my very first Essie which is very special as it was a gift from my daughter.

I then decided to use Revlon’s Blue lagoon to add a few little flowers, I hope you all like them πŸ’‹

One Stroke Flowers

I love doing one stroke painting & still have a long way to go but I will keep on practicing, you know that old boring saying that “practice makes perfect” (well it’s right)……I followed a wonderful tutorial by the very talented Cute nails on YouTube & I astounded myself with the results, I love these so much & still can’t believe i done them (head swelling) …….I’m looking forward to much more practicing this year. I used a black by Sinful Colors & acrylic paints……I hope you all love them as much as I do πŸ’‹

Moyou stamping & me

Well my very first Moyou stamping plate arrived todayπŸ˜ƒ & I’ve been doing a whole load of practicing…..it’s so much harder than it looks!😩 I’ll be the first to admit that when I first saw stamping I thought hmmm well that ain’t hard but oh was I wrong (so wrong)…..there’s certainly a knack to it & I’ve discovered that I prefer to use an old gift card rather than the scraper as it doesn’t scratch my beautiful plate! Some of you guys on ig & blog owners have amazing stamping skills….massive respect to you all πŸ‘ŒπŸ’‹
