Not ashamed to say that I'm wearing a tuxedo...

Heeey

One of my original aims for this blog was to show you my progress with nail art. I have actually only ever done one nail art post ha!!

Here's my little tuxedo nails. I actually ruined these when I was asleep.. they are not as smooth as I would like. I used so much nail varnish resulting in the nail staying too sticky... I woke up to liney/smudgy nails :(

 Black: Rimmel Black out (800)
White nail art pen: Ebay
Shamelessly modelling my nails 
Despite the slight messiness...I  LOVE them! I've been meaning to try this for ages but just never got round to actually doing it. So glad I did though. My secret mission for today; to hide from all the managers in work... They will make me take it off and I will have to say NO :) 

Link me to any of your nail art posts.... ALWAYS looking for new inspirations and ideas :) 

Ps.. No idea why I'm holding Barry M nail polish... as I didn't actually use it. But it is good lol!

  2. Ahhhhh, Lowri. This post just made me go "eeeee"! like that! These are so cool! i LOVE them!!!

    ps. yes, wishing you luck in your new shoes - but how good does it feel when you're taller by so many inches and can see things you normally can' see! Definitely worth the pain! (look after you ankles, and don't wibble wobble like that model!) xxxx

  21. Fair play to you!
    I can barely manage to paint a plain coat of polish onto my nails without making a mess!

    I think I'll try it though. It will probably end up looking more like a zebra, but... I like zebras too! =]

  23. your nails are sooo cute!!!
    and the smudgy + line effect always happen to me as well! I always paint my nails before I sleep, and sometimes I fall asleep before they are fully dried, resulting in the bad nails :(

  26. hahaha- these are phenomenal. you have to not take yourself too seriously to sport a nail like this. it's a "damn right i've got tuxedos on my fingers. what's it to you?" kinda look. love it.
