Some folks need their hair done or lippie on or maybe even just a big smile to feel like they’re killing it. For me it’s kick arse nails. I don’t feel myself unless my nails are sporting a dapper polish. Finger nails may be a strange place to get a confidence boost, but c’est la vie. My mum always has perfect nails, my sister’s are exquisite; who am I to let the side down?
I always do my own nails. On the rare occassion that I’ve had them done professionally I’ve felt like I could do just as good a job (if not better). Thus I am diy manicure enthusiast. Even nail art is a lot easier than most people think. If you invest in the right brushes & have a little patience, most folk can master it. My secret weapon is nail drying spray. Instantly drying each coat or detail saves so much time & frustrating smudges. I am often asked where I find the time to do my nails & this is one of the few times that insomnia works to my advantage. I almost always do my nails in the middle of night. There has to be some perk to living life perpetually tired & sore. This, my friends is it…

Aw man, those rainbows!
I’m rubbish at nail art but you’re probably right in that it boils down to a lack of patience. Even if I’m just painting my nails plain one hand ends up looking like a riot. But, as self-care rituals go, the stillness that it requires probably makes it one of the best.
I always admire your nails from afar ❤

Thank you. I’m not a patient person at all, but I suppose I must have done nail patience!
I feel very much the same about manicures done professionally! I always seem to end up with them chipping right away! I did my own for my wedding for the same reason. I don’t have your skills though, yours are so impressive!
I bet yours are gorgeous.
love the trees especially!
I’m going to do some wintery trees after Halloween
