Halloween Flash



Went to the London Tattoo Convention last year so I decided to do my usual tattoo flash nails. Unfortunately I didn't get time to finish them due to long work hours but these are the ones I did complete.
Decided to go for a Halloween flash theme so I have a bat, a coffin, a tooth and a spider.
Hopefully I'll be going again this year!

Let's Get Nude



Trying out my new Rimmel 'Let's Get Nude' with some basic black line designs and patterns.
Nails are looking super short here due to a lot of breakages at work at the time.
On my left hand I have lace, a kitty nose and whiskers, leopard print, hearts and a diamond.
On my right hand I have a bow, polka dots, a spotted pattern, stripes and cherry blossom.
This is definitely the best nude I've found so far which matches my skin tone.

Nautical 30th!



Nautical nails to match my outfit for my 30th birthday drinks with my girls.
I went on an amazing trip to Paris (including Disneyland) for my actual 30th but unfortunately I was a bit too busy to paint anything for the trip, so I did these after I got back.
It's been a few years since I'd done some simple nautical nails and I needed to do something quick so I went old school and did an updated version of some of my original nautical nails from 5 years previous.
Was definitely one of my best birthdays yet! 🎈🎂

"Harley Quinn, pleased to meetcha!"



I cosplayed as my favourite DC character, Harley Quinn, at London Film and Comic Con last year and to complete the outfit I had to paint the nails to match.
I wore my leggings and dress, made a collar and bought and styled a wig for the costume. I also wore different colour DM's and applied red and black makeup to add to the finishing touches.
Here's a pic of the final outfit:


Loved every minute of it and I hope I get to use this costume again in the future. Maybe I'll find my puddin' to dress up with me...

Sun, sea and sand


Went on a day trip to the beach last summer while the weather was nice so I painted my nails to match.
Decided to paint a beach landscape with a bucket and spade, a yacht, sandcastle, parasol and shark fin.
Luckily we didn't come across any sharks but there were plenty of sandcastles.

Villains of Gotham



Suicide Squad had just been announced and images released for the characters so I went though a bit of a Batman phase. I re-watched the Dark Knight trilogy and decided to paint some Batman villain cartoon nails.
On my left hand I have the Batman logo, Bane, the Joker, Harley Quinn and the Penguin.
On my right hand I have the Riddler, Two Face, Poison Ivy, Catwoman and Batman.
This was also the week of London Gay Pride so I added a rainbow flag to my Batman nail.

Kneller Road tea party



Last year our street decided to come together as a community and have a street party with food, drink, music, games and general merriment. It was a lovely day and it's now become an annual event.
On my left hand I have our street sign Kneller Road, a tea cup and teapot pouring tea, ice cream and a gingham picnic blanket.
On my right hand I have musical notes, butterfly wing, a cupcake, balloons and strawberries.
Here's a pic of the party and the cookies I made and decorated:


Dragon Eggs



These are some very quick Game of Thrones nails I painted to match my outfit for a pic a day challenge last year.
They match my Drogon Dragon Egg leggings and my Thrones dress. The turquoise and cream nails are Rhaegal and Viserion dragon eggs.
Here's my final outfit pic:


Birthdays in May



It would seem I'm very compatible with Taurus and Gemini as most of my closest friends have their birthdays in May. Three of which are on the 23rd (two of them being twins). So last May I decided to dedicate my nails just for them with some pastel coloured bunting and balloons.
The colours I used are a mixture of Model's Own and Barry M. Base coat is Model's Own Hyper Gel in White Light.
