40 great nail art ideas- spring

Oops I'm late again! Though actually i did these on these on the correct day i just kind of totally forgot to post haha. It's been kind of a manic weekend.

Anywho. I really enjoyed this prompt :) i love spring, it's the best part of the year as far as I'm concerned. The days are getting longer and the weather is getting better and everything comes back to life. I hate winter with a passion and spring has a hugely positive effect on my mental health.

But anyway. Onto the nails. I kept it really simple with blue skies and daisies. What more could you want? Haha.

Polish wise, um? I'm not entirely sure cos i used lots of different colours at random lol. I started with a pale blue nails Inc which i think is called regent's place. Then i dabbed on cupcake polish 'joy', which you can't really see in the photos but the holo snuck out every so often irl, which i enjoyed.

Then i sponged on barry m malibu and barry m coconut to finish the sky. The grass was a mixture of sponging and brush strokes using barry m key lime, barry m watermelon, a non gelly barry m i forget the name of and a revlon that i also forget the name of. The daisies are barry m coconut and nails Inc Carnaby street i believe.

And just for fun here's a pic of my left hand since it turned out surprisingly un-hideous lol.

I kind of liked this one actually. I'm not good at the whole 'pretty pictures' type of nail art but it was fun and cheerful and you could tell what it was supposed to be. Plus i liked how the sky turned if only the sky irl would follow suit! Haha.

So there we are. Yay for spring :D. x

40 great nail art ideas- 3 shades of green

...and fluid lines.

Um. I haven't done the blogging thing for a while. A long while in fact :s. But i was enjoying this challenge before so I'm trying to get back into it and stick with it this time. So here we are with three greens and some wiggly lines lol.

Excuse the shocking photos. And the shocking state of my nails and cuticles and what not. I'm working on that. Now that I've stopped biting them lol, which was not conducive to pretty painting haha.

The three greens are sinful colors mint apple as a base. Then some random curly squiggles in a-England st George and barry m Arabian. The latter is a duochrome that has a lot of gold leanings and does show pretty much entirely gold in the pics but i still reckon i can just about get away with calling it green :p.
