Hi, I’m Kayley, 24, UK. This little blog will mostly be about my nail art with a few crafty things thrown in for good measure.

More stripes! I did want to do something different originally, but I only had twenty mins so I had to do something quick, and when in doubt, stripes!

I need to start putting polishes I haven’t worn in a separate place from the rest I think. I’e had this glitter for about two months now, and I can’t remember ever wearing it. Why haven’t I worn it? It’s gorgeous! Plus I didn’t have to fish too much for the bigger glitter, which is always awesome.

Another spring mani today, although I wasn’t feeling as lazy today, and so stripes! I had trouble picking up the teal in this, it’s a bright teal and my camera never picks it up colour accurate no matter what setting it’s on, or at all in this case.

When I did these I was feeling lazy, although I did know I wanted a springy mani. So I decided to dig out some textured I haven’t used in ages, well not the pink this is the first time I’m using that. The pink has some holo glitter in that my camera would not at all pick up on, it was also four coats, four! Not really what I expected, considering I paid about £8 for it and the teal is two coats and I paid £3 for it…

So I tried a new sponging technique! And I just love the outcome, I got the idea for these from a post Chalkboard Nails did a little while ago. I can see myself doing these quite often in summer (or maybe all the time).  I did this about a week or so ago and forgot to write down what I used, so I’ll have to do a best guess on the list of what I used sorry. =/

Super easy skittle today! The glitter polish also has neon green glitters, but as you can see my camera did not want to pick them up at all! Also this glitter was a right pain in the butt! I had to fish and place every single glitter, because if I just did it normally I got all base and not glitter. Grrr.

I had a little bit of inspiration today! These didn’t turn out too great but it felt good to be doing some stamping at least. How cute are these little dino images, plus they are smaller than the other dinosaur stamping images I have so they don’t look huge on my nails.

I’m still supre un-inspired so I have decided to just wear a my favourite polishes. Today it is Scofflaw Chromosaurus Hex. This is just two coats of it, plus it comes off easier than other glitter polishes I own.

I’m feeling super un-inspired when it comes to doing my nail at the moment, I really want to wear the base colour China Glaze When Star Collide though. I was wondering what to do once I had put the base colour down, and then it hit me, star studs! I’m not really the biggest fan of how these turned out, maybe I should have done an accent nail with a stud rather than stud all the nails!

Fox water-decals!! Super cute, plus super easy to do, yay! Look how cute this little fox is, I got him from She Sell Sea Shells. I might just get some of the squirrel ones aswell, and maybe the cat ones too. The base colours if China Glaze Smoke and Ashes.

I had a terrible time taking photos for these nails. They wren’t really blurry or anything, but I couldn’t get the base colour to photograph close to what it looks like in real life. Which makes me sad, as it’s such a lovely pinky coral colour.

Taped gradients might be my favourite version of gradients. I was going to do the glequin chevrons on all my nails, but when I sat down to do them the thought of doing that made me want to cry. So taped gradients happened instead.

Green and cooper! I feel like I haven’t used these glequins for ages, mostly because I haven’t.  I do wish I had gone closer to the top of my nail with the glequins, as it seems like theres too much space between them and the tip.

I used the MoYou sailor plate 4 again today, I seriously can’t get enough of it! I don’t really know what this image has to do with the ocean of anything though.

Matte nails! Sometimes matte nails just make me so happy. Plus they are wayy easier to photograph than glossy nails. The stamping image here is from MoYou Sailor plate 4, which might be my new favourite stamping plate right now.
