Day 22 – Fruit Cake

I decided to use fruit cake colours and do a more abstract manicure 🙂

I always remember having fruit cake on Christmas. It was a big deal in my family, my grandma used to make tons of Christmas puddings (that have all the fruit, cherries, raisins, etc in). The recipe was passed down from my great-grandmother who apparently stole a recipe for fruit cake from the nuns. I’m not sure how true this whole story is, but it was always a big part of our Christmas.

I did a very simple, abstract design 🙂 I hope you like it!

Day 18 – Something classic

I decided to do a version of a French Manicure 🙂 I love French Manicures AND they are classic. This one didn’t turn out too Christmassy, I added some tape to try spice it up. But I realised that I don’t have red or green tape (Christmas colours).. But, I did my best and this is how it turned out 🙂

I used a Konad light pink that is very transparent as an undercoat, then I used tape and Sally Hansen White On to make a French manicure effect. After that I used blue and black tape and a lace black tape on one nail as an accent. That’s it! 🙂

Cute and Girly

Happy Friday to everyone 🙂 It’s been a long week! I just want to do a quick post..

This is similar to a manicure I did a few weeks ago, tiny dotting french manicure. I also did an accent nail with some cute flowers. It’s a very cute, girly mani.

I used an ancient Yardley French Manicure Pink (I’ve had it for years, but it’s just a plain pink for french manicures), I also used a Modi pink, Sally Hansen “White on”, Skin Food lime green and some silver nail art tape. I used a dotting stick with a really small tip to make tiny dots. Its super cute and cheerful, it brightened up my day today 🙂 I hope you like it!  What do you think?

Pretty in tape..



This is my mani from tonight. I used a Korean nail polish from The Face Shop (If anyone wants more details about polishes just comment and I’ll reply, not sure if you get these brands anywhere other than Korea). I love the colour, but it didn’t come out nicely in the pics. I have a feeling it’s going to really shine in the daylight… We’ll see tomorrow 🙂 What do you think? I hope you like my mani 🙂

Retro Stripes

Rave/Retro stripes

I did this the night my nail tape arrived in the mail. I did a base coat of pink and one green accent. I waited for these to dry completely, then I put tape across and painted over with black. I then added one silver tape stripe. Ended it off with a top coat. Presto! Easier said than done though… this tape is so tiny and delicate!
