Easter pyjama party

Happy Easter!
Was originally planning to just do Pyjama Party nails this week, however I couldn't spend Easter weekend without any Easter themed nail art on my nails so I decided to do a mixture of both.
Had an amazing time at the Prince Charles Cinema Pyjama Party last night. We played pass the parcel and watched some awesome nostalgic girly films, including Can't Hardly Wait, Clueless, Get Over It, Cruel Intentions, Easy A and She's All That. My left hand is dedicated to the films of the Pyjama Party. First I have 'Pyjama Party' in Easter colours, then the word "twat" spelled with peas on a dinner plate from Easy A (made the A red as she embroiders this on her clothes in the film), a pizza with red pubes on it from She's All That, a pink fluffy pen, cell phone and pink lipstick from Clueless and the cross necklace Kathryn wears in Cruel Intentions.
My right hand is Easter themed with a gold cross, daffodil and tulips, the three dragon eggs from Game of Thrones (had to include that in my Easter theme as the new series starts on Easter Monday), a basket of eggs and 'Happy Easter' in pastel colours.
Hope everyone's enjoying their Easter holiday and feasting on tasty treats!

Chocolate Easter

With Easter coming up the shops are overloaded with confectionary and as that's the only way I know how to celebrate the holiday, I decided my Easter nail art theme this year is Easter Eggs.
On my left hand I have a Lindt bunny with a bell (not an egg but can't have an Easter without one of these), a Smarties egg (in the old font as this is one of my favourites I received as a child), a Cadbury Creme Egg (would like to have written 'Cadbury' on it as well but it proved to be too much small detail and I couldn't fit it in), Green & Black's egg (the posh one of the bunch) and a Lindt egg (again I tried to write 'Lindt' in the font on the red label but it was too much detail and wouldn't fit on my tiny nail).
On my right hand I have a Wispa egg, a Malteser egg, a Kinder Surpise, a Roses egg and a nest with three Mini Eggs inside.
Happy Easter everyone and I hope you enjoy feasting on lots of yummy chocolate like me!

When you wish upon a nail...

Took a while for me to decide on a theme for this week as it's not quite Easter yet and I did St. Patrick's Day nails last year. Then I looked down at my phone case and decided it would be a perfect inspiration. This is my latest case:

Disney princess cupcakes!
Some of them I decided to copy as close as possible because the designs are perfect for nail art. Some of them are a bit too detailed and complicated or I just wanted to put my own spin on them. So 5 of my nails are straight from the case and 5 are my own cupcake designs.
On my left hand I have a 'Disney' cupcake in the Disney font (I wanted to draw this on the last Disney nails I did but I never actually completed that nail), Snow White, Pocahontas (not technically a princess but she was one of my favourites as a child), Cinderella and Princess and the Frog. Then on my right I have The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled and Sleeping Beauty (my all time favourite).
Missed out on the Mulan nail as I never grew up with that film and I actually still haven't seen it, as shocking as that is!
Actually watching a Disney marathon right now as I'm ill at the moment and I always used to get the Disney out when I was sick as a child. Nothing like some Disney magic to cure a cold!

Look out for my Easter nails coming soon...

Cold winds are rising...

This week the second series of Game of Thrones was released so to celebrate I decided that would be the theme for my nails.
I also completed and handed in my dissertation this week which was a big achievement for me as I thought I'd give up long before that happened. I treated myself with the DVD of GoT season 2 once I completed it, gave me something to work towards.
On my left hand I have painted different parts of the beginning credit sequence which shows the map of Westeros. I have the 'Game of Thrones' title on the sigils, Quarth (as I'm painting season 2 nails I wanted to include a location from this season), King's Landing, the white tree of Winterfell (if you look closely I've included a tiny red leaf on the right of the nail) and the Wall.
On my right hand I have a red dragon wing, the Night's Watch sigil (I know in the book they don't have a sigil but I wanted to paint something to represent them that wasn't just a plain black nail), the Hand of the King pin, Davos Seaworth's sigil (one of my favourite season 2 characters) and 'Valar Morghulis'.
Have already watched half of my new season 2 DVD this week and I'm so excited about season 3 coming soon!
