Shmowzow! Heroes vs Villains

Last May I joined in with many other Sharkies around the globe to complete the Black Milk Clothing pic a day May challenge. I painted these to match my Adventure Time Bro Ball leggings for one of the challenges.
On my left hand I have Finn, Jake, Lumpy Space Princess, BMO and the snail. On my right hand I have Magic Man, Lemongrab, Ricardio the Heart Guy, Gunter and Ice King.
These are probably one of my favourite set of nails I've painted so far. Took a long time to get the detail right and it paid off.
For a closer look and to see all my other pics from the challenge, feel free to check out my Instagram page:

Nails of Ultron

Started on these Avengers nails for the Age of Ultron premiere which was held at my then place of work, Westfield White City. Unfortunately I didn't get the time to complete them but I did manage to get a good glimpse of the entire cast at the premiere:

Easter eggs

Happy Easter!
Wanted to use some nice pastel colours (mostly Models Own) for my Easter theme last year. I also included my new Models Own speckled egg range.
On my left hand I have Happy Easter, a cracked egg, a bunny in an egg, a chocolate egg in pink foil, and a carrot.
On my right hand I have an Easter egg pattern, a chick in an egg, a hot cross bun, a daffodil and a basket of eggs.
Looking forward to all the tasty treats because that's what Easter is all about right?

Models Own Speckled Eggs

I was so excited to get my hands on the Models Own speckled egg range in time for Easter last year. I love the effect they have.
These are just some sample nails, I then created some Easter nail art with them...

A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

After visiting the Professional Beauty London convention last year and treating myself to the Morgan Taylor Cinderella collection, I decided to use them in some Disney's Cinderella cartoon nails.
I have created the story going along my nails so this time I'm starting with my right hand. I have the evil stepmother's hair, Cinderella's first dress torn to rags, the fairy godmother's bow, the magical transformation, and the pumpkin carriage.
On my left hand I have the castle, the clock striking midnight, Lucifer the cat, the key, and Cinderella's slipper.
All of the metallic and glitter varnishes used are from the Morgan Taylor collection. Love the colours and they're perfect for capturing the magic of Cinderella.

Valar Morghulis

Season 4 is coming! Or it was at the time I painted these. Designed for the DVD release of season 4 in February last year so I had those particular characters and storylines in mind when I painted them.
On my left hand I have the raven from the front cover of the DVD, Sansa's necklace, a heart tree, Jon Snow's sword Longclaw, and Arya's coin.
On my right hand I have the Martell sigil, the Lannister sigil, the Clegane sigil, a golden harpie statue, and GOT in the Game of Thrones font.
I was also lucky enough to get my DVD signed by Carice Van Houten at London Film and Comic Con last summer:

It's now almost time for the season 5 DVD release so there'll be new GoT nails coming soon...
