3D Floral/Safari

Hello fellow nailoholics! I finally got around to trying the 3D flowers that I purchased from Born Pretty Store.


I chose to use one of my teal Nails Inc. polishes as my background. I used my nail art pens to draw a blossom design on my thumb and stuck my 3D flower on using clear nail polish.

I realise now that thinking clear polish would be enough to stick the flower to my nail was a big mistake! I picked up some papers at work today and a sheet slid between my flower and the nail and the 3D flower came clean off :( I have now invested in brush on nail glue (why I never had any in the first place is a mystery!) so I will post a new image of the next 3D experiment soon!

On another naily note, I did a safari manicure on my friend Sarah too.


What do you think?

Birthday Goodies

Hi beauties, thank you for all your lovely birthday wishes! I have had some beautiful gifts including some fab nail goodies.

★ Caviar beads – 12 tiny bottles of caviar beads.
☆ Barry M nail art pens – the new pens in black, white, silver and pink.
★ Three-way nail art pens in blue and pink.
☆ Nail jewels/rhinestones.

I am excited to try out my new caviar beads because I have always been terrible at applying them in the past! I also cannot wait to try my new Barry M pens-just what I wanted! (Thanks Sarah!)

Thank you to my lovely sister for all my other nail goodies.
I have had a fabulous birthday :)

Now onto the next mani!

Glitter Gradient with Studs

Thanks to people for giving me glitter ideas! I saw a nail design here on Dressed Up Nails that I completely fell in love with! The colours, the gradient, the studs-I love it all. So I tried to recreate it.

I found a Sally Hansen glitter polish called ‘Gilded Lily’ which was perfect for this gradient.


I took lots of photos but none of them seem to capture this mani’s true beauty.




Thanks Whitney for inspiring me with your amazing design!
