Day 4

Magician’s Nails!

These nails have everything a magician could need- a deck of cards, a magic wand and, of course, a top hat with a rabbit popping out!

I definitely need some finer brushes, I found it pretty tricky (Wahey! No pun intended!) trying to do the card nails with the brushes I’ve got at the moment!

Day 5

In Denial That It’s Autumn Nails!

Some nails to make me forget that it’s autumn and starting to get chilly here! So I decided to go for some bright florals so there’s still a little slice of summer in my life!

I ordered some extra fine detail brushes last night so hopefully they should be arriving soon and I can start doing some more detailed nails!

Day 10

Union Jack Nails

Day 23

Red and Gold Nails!

Felt like doing something simple and sleek today, though actually it kind of reminds me of Wonder Woman or Iron Man! I’m ok with that though, nothing like a bit of superhero power to get you through the day!
