Flower Tips Nail Art

Here is an easy-peasy bit of nail art for you all! Sorry about the photo quality, this was taken on my phone… I wanted to keep updating my blog as I miss it! Hopefully my new camera will arrive soon. It’s apparently at Heathrow right now, woo!

What I used:

This look is so easy – just one coat of Swan Lake for a little bit of sparkle, then use the dotting tool to make 5 dots around a central point in a flower shape, wait for that to dry and then squeeze out a dot of yellow in the middle of each flower!

What do you think? I like this kind of simple-but-pretty nail art, it only took me about 10 minutes to do both hand and it makes stained tips look very clean and white against the red!

What’s your favourite simple nail art design?

Union Jack Jubilee Nail Art

So as we all know, it’s our good ole Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this weekend. I love celebrating being British, and I have a lot of respect for much of the Royal family. I decided to attempt Union Jack nails… they look a LOT worse in the photos than they seem to in real life, I suppose because you tend not to scrutinise real life nails like photographs allow you to! My brother thought I had nail wraps on, which is good enough for me!

If you look at my nails out of focus then they don’t look so bad 😉 This is the illusion real life has given my nail art 🙂

I used:

Now I am not blessed with ambidexterity. I struggled using my dominant (right) hand for this so, if you want to see how my right hand turned out, well, prepare yourself for a nail fail!

Nail fail

I didn’t even bother to clean up – sadly I am walking round with my right hand still looking like this. Ah well.

What nails are you sporting for the Jubilee?
