I’m finding all this stormy weather a bit of a style block. It’s hard to look put together in a gale. The desire to stay even somewhat warm & dry is cramping my sartorial creativity. I have therefore expressed my individuality on my finger nails.
The Baba helped me select a new sparkly polish & I used it to full effect on this shatter design.
I can never get enough of that glossy black polish.
The non stop downpour inspired me to get a little nautical. There is certainly more romance on a wild sea than a drenched city street.
All those grey skies called for a little colour.
If a little colour feels good, one might as well go for a lot of colour too.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without some sparkly nail art. My favourite manicures are themed. Thus, I give you the first instalment of glittery fingers.
I eased into the season with some festive tartan. I know really want some red & gold tartan attire.
I turned up the Xmas volume with my next mani. Mixing a swirly tree with a cute little present. All on a base of gorgeous glossy burgundy with a sprinkling of glitter.
I am currently sporting these cute baubles with a whole load of glitter. In December you need all the twinkle.
It’s almost time to change. What should I have next?
I love this time of year for many reasons. The crisp chilly days, the copper leaves & all those cute cosy knits. Mostly though, Halloween. I am a fan of all things spooky and I love the opportunity to get a little crazy with my nails. Creepy nail art is my absolute favourite.
I started the month with some bloody meat cleavers because what’s Halloween without a bit of horror.
I moved onto a moonlit spooky scene.
Then I went a bit a cartoony with some blood drippy eyeballs. I particularly enjoyed those bright orange stripes.
Which leads to my current adornment. These took ages because I kept screwing up, but my stormy bats were definitely worth all the faffing around.
