My Nails This Week: Hello Fall

Fall is upon us (in a couple days).  Since it’s really feeling like Fall around here and the leaves are changing colours and beginning to fall to the ground, I was feeling really inspired to incorporate some fall colours into my nail art this week.  I thought of the brown, […]

My Nails This Week: Every Story has some Grey

I’m not sure how I came up with the idea for this design.  I’m a black and grey person (a lot of my clothes are black – haha), so I like to work with dark colours.  I was browsing on Pinterest and saw nail designs being done with no background […]

My Nails This Week: Pink triangles

This week I took a shot at this idea I had.  Three shades of pink on top of a nude pink.  The lightest pink triangle doesn’t show up well in the picture, unfortunately.  But, as I’ve said before, I’m no photographer and I take these photos with my phone, so they’re […]

My Nails This Week: Green with Pink Explosions

This week I went in with some sort of idea and it kind of turned out the way I envisioned.  I called it “Green with Pink Explosions” because doesn’t it kind of look like fireworks?  That wasn’t my intention, but I think that it resembles fireworks.  Now I want to […]

My Nails This Week: Coloured Stripes

After completing this design, I realized that this would work really well as Pride nails, wouldn’t it?  And wasn’t it just Pride week?  Shoot!  Why didn’t I do these nails just a little sooner?! What I used to accomplish this look: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat Zoya Alma Zoya […]

My Nails This Week – My attempt at sunflowers

The lovely Lindsi from Do You Dog-ear? requested a sunflower nail design.  I have to say, I am not an artist and I’ve only ever attempted very simple, tiny flowers before (like these).  However, I happily accepted the challenge and tried my best!  Here is the result.  I think this would […]

My Nails This Week: Mixed up Swirls

This week I tried to do this really cool swirly look.  @ignailqueen did a similar look on Instagram and I knew immediately I had to try it!  You basically put different colours on your work area (I just used a glass plate) and then use a tool (I used a […]

My Nails This Week: Purple Orange swirl

I saw a similar design (with different colours, of course) on one of those quick Facebook videos and it stuck with me.  Unfortunately, that was a while ago and so I’m not sure who to credit for the creation, but I thought it was a cool design.  Here is my […]

My Nails This Week: Blended Blues

This week, I wanted to do something simple because I’m starting a new job!  But I still wanted to do SOMETHING!  So, I just decided to do this look of blended blues.  In case it’s a bit difficult to tell (because I did such a good job blending??  Haha – […]

My Nails This Week: Tiny Bubbles

It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted about nails, mainly because it’s been quite some time since I’ve done my nails!  I was getting my nails done with gel for over a year.  My nails are actually still really weak from having the gel nails on, so that’s why […]
