Spring Nails

I put together three designs here, very simple and pretty quick actually as I wanted to post this before I left for Edinburgh, however, I have no concept of time and how long it takes me to pack and get ready so....if anybody wants to know how to do these just let me know and I'll do a post when I'm back.














The base colours from left to right are Revlon 'Classy', Barry M 'Lemon', Bourjois 'Amande Defile', Models Own 'Beth's Blue' and lastly, Rimmel 'Rose Libertine'.


I chose simple dot designs for three of them, mainly because I ran out of time the night before (I had so many ideas). The design with Barry M 'Lemon' as a base was slightly random as I wanted to create a vine type design with flowers coming off it, I think it is ok but I'm definitely having another go when I have a bit more time on my hands, so watch this space! I like the blue design though, however originally I didn't have the pink detail on and I felt it looked a little bland so once I had added the pink I did feel that it lifted the design so much more. I guess these are actually very simple and I'm rather in two minds about posting as honestly, anybody could do these. They're a bit fun though so they've made it to my blog to share with you all.

    1. Yes I saw on your Instagram I think earlier on today, I picked up some dotting tools a few years ago and ended up distributing two to my sister, one to my friend and keeping the other two for myself haha! They're so good and so cheap too :) I'd love to see your designs xx

  12. These are so, so cute! The orange dotty one and the blue flower ones are my favourite - you're right, adding the pink makes it look so much more detailed :)

  14. These are so pretty and summery! I am so rubbish with nail art as I'm too clumsy to do my right hand with my left, I shake too much! Might have to get some nail wheels though, as it's a good way to give some designs a go first and get some practice in.
    Hope you've had a good week lovely.

    1. Ahh yes the other hand can be so so tricky, it depends on what you're doing I think. I'm getting better at it but my right hand is never as crisp as the left xx

  18. Gorgeous nails Amy! I wish I had the steadiness and patience to do nail art! The polka dots look fab though- I think I *might* be able to master them if I concentrate hard enough!!
