Christmas in the trenches

Started last year's Christmas festivities with this Winter Wonderland nail as I was visiting with some friends. It's definitely become an awesome annual tradition to visit every year now.

Then came the annual advent nails. Unfortunately I got sick around Christmas and couldn't complete them so I may come back to this theme this year.
These are all Christmas film advent nails:

The only one I completed on this hand was Home Alone, slightly ironic.

These are my completed advents for this hand; Die Hard with the quote 'Now I have a machine gun, ho ho ho!', Kermit from a Muppets Christmas Carol and Buddy's legs from Elf.

(Also in the background of these are my Christmas Tree 2.0 leggings from Black Milk Clothing, they're so fun and festive!)

Looking forward to fun festivities and lots more glittery nail art this year!

Harley Halloween

Harley Quinn was my Halloween costume for my party last year so I had to paint some matching nails for it. Unfortunately only had time to complete the one hand.
These are based on the Batman cartoon series of Harley which is my favourite and I've always wanted to dress up as a version of her.

Here's my complete costume and make-up:

The dress and leggings are and the collar is handmade my me!
Now I just need to figure out how I'm going to top that for Halloween this year...

All Hallows' nails

Just some quick black and orange Halloween nails to match my awesome Black Milk Clothing pumpkin patch skater dress.
From left to right I've painted a haunted house, eyes, a pumpkin, a spider web, a spider, bats, a wolf and moon, a cat, a ghost and a witch on her broomstick.
This is my favourite time of year so can't wait to get in the mood with some Halloween films, candy and outfits! And of course lots more nail art designs...

Their faces are so cute!

Guardians of the nails

Painted these for the DVD release of Guardians of the Galaxy. Unfortunately became a bit too busy selling it to complete this set of nails.
My plan for these was to dedicate each nail to a certain character. These ones are Drax's tattoos, Peter Quill aka Starlord's mix tape, mini Groot and the orb.
Will hopefully do a Marvel mix with an improved version of these soon.

Happy 100th 🎉

A year ago today was my granny's 100th birthday and we threw her a big party for all the family, so naturally I had to commemorate it on my nails. It was also my great aunt Mollie's 90th so they had a joint party.
The 100 and 90 are balloons. I also added a glittery 'Happy Birthday', a champagne glass, flowers, a present and a birthday cake.
They've both just celebrated their 101st and 91st birthdays with many more to come...

Tattoo time

Painted these for London Tattoo Convention 2014. A great weekend of checking out artist's work from all over the world. Plus lots of Sailor Jerry's of course.
On my left hand I have 'Sailor Jerry', a nautical star, an apple, a knife and dice. On my right hand I have a diamond, a knuckle duster, cherries, a rose and lucky playing cards.
Just painted my tattoo nails for the 2015 convention last week, will hopefully get this blog up to date and the pics on here soon.
