hard as nails.



I've never been very into crazy nail art, generally I like to keep my nails one simple block colour. Usually a neutral or grey so that it'll go with everything I wear. Also, I have quite unsteady hands so I find it hard to do.

However, after seeing the amazing things my friend Sara can do on her nails, and seeing lots of lovely pictures of Kim and Gem's nails I started to get a bit of nail envy. When I saw Gem's recent Scotch Tape Nail Art post, I knew it was time to give it a go. By the way, it works REALLY well, and if you have unsteady hands like me it's practically a godsend.

These are just a few photos of me experimenting really. Some of the nails are a little messy and some just don't work, but I've never really been a perfectionist and I like that they're all different. I think my favourites are the nude/pastel colour combos and I'll definitely be cracking them out again in Spring/Summer!

    I tried to do nail art once and it was so cool having each nail different and fun.

  12. The above deleted comment was from me, I didn't realise my boyfriend was logged in. Anyway, I said: I love them totally mismatched! I've been meaning to try my hand at this but just haven't got round to it, I definitely need to.
