Nail Obsession

Nail posts always seem to go down well and I LOVE writing about nails, nail varnish and nail art. I don't know why but I actually find painting my nails very therapeutic when I am stressed or need a bit of 'me' time! I am always buying new nail varnish and even more so now I am working in the city centre just a floor away from Boots. I'm constantly taking photos of my nails after I have painted them! I get bored easily and like to change my nail varnish often so it is probably a good thing that my nail varnish always chips so quickly, not sure why this is! Just wanted to do a quick post on some of the nail styles I have had recently! I recently bought Models Own Hedonist and Ibiza Mix, I am in LOVE with Ibiza Mix because of the different colour and sized glitter and it looks amazing over so many different colours. I love how fluorescent Hedonist is but I find the consistency too thick and also not sure about the semi-matte finish, but is fine with a shiny top coat!

Nude with Ibiza Mix.

Sweet Kisses (17) with Ibiza Mix.

Free Missguided orange from Glamour.

Models Own Hedonist with Ibiza Mix on ring finger.

Dotting tool used to dot dark purple and then layer on top to smudge the dots. Glitter ring finger.

Red with Ibiza Mix and two tone ring finger.




What do you think? Any styles you recommend I try? Love finding new ideas and techniques.

  1. Models Own Hedonist is gorgeous! I don't know if you have done them as I've only just found your blog and haven't read everything yet, but you should try fishtail nails.
