Hey guys its monday, which means i’ll be featuring my fellow blogger as my (2nd ever) guest poster!

MAY from NAILPHILE is U.K. based nail artist/blogger. Her designs are super cute and feature a mix of girly, edgy and nature inspired designs with rich colors.

This design is so creative, and i thought was also perfect for this time of year!

and here she is :)….


Hi, I’m May (‘The Nailphile’), I’m fairly new to this nail art stuff, but I hope you all like my designs! This design was nothing like what I was going for, I found other things I was using..but I accidentally sprayed my nails when I was spraying feathers and I liked the speckles, so decided to go with it. Then I saw the little weeds/leaves behind which had all the gold paint on them and thought they looked so pretty - so I picked them and stuck them on my nails! That’s about it really, just used real things to make my nail art this week instead of painting, which seemed to work and I have seen it work other times too. I had the cut out and studs on there to add a bit of interest to the nails too, and made sure I put a clear over the top to protect the leaves!


 thank you MAY!  For these awesome nails!

101 Dalmatians Nails!

It’s for my Disney NOTW Submission, & I watched the film last night. It’s so cute!
Ombre background for the soot on the dogs and obviously the spots because they’re dalmatians! and the collar is on the ring finger. My thumb came out the best but then the design was upside down so it was easier to do it like this :)

“I love you to the moon and back”

My version of cheesy heart-felt valentines nails!

I didn’t want anything red, or pink, or hearty, or girly and shmushy.
Or anything that you ALWAYS see for valentines day when it comes to nail art.
I wanted something different and I’m actually quite pleased with how these came out (for once!) - and I actually painted something for once rather than a pattern!

“I love you to the moon and back” is actually something related to my mum, we used to say it before bed every night when I was little after reading the book Guess How Much I Love You. If you have never read it, or you have children, then you definitely should. Like I said, I wanted something different and valentines day is about showing people you love them right? It doesn’t have to be your boyfriend, fiancé, husband etc.. it can be whoever you want it to be.


Day 4 - Green

Topshop - Jewel in the Crown

These are pretty simple, I also painted a floral pattern on the little and pointer finger, but it looked a bit shit to be honest!
Will add photos of them soon :)

I sponged the different shades of green over the top and then added individual bits of big glitter onto the nails - took me forever!
I’d quite like them if they were a different colour! likewise to the yellow nails, not a fan of green! 


Day 2, Orange!

I used Topshop - Plume, for the base coat, which is actually two-tone navy and purple and impossible to photograph! I then used this orange that I have again from topshop but came in a pack of 5 nail art pens. It’s inspired by a topshop giraffe bag too!

I’m actually really happy with how these came out!
