Musings: 2012 in Nails
The whole nail-art trend has become absolutely huge over the past year or so. I love browsing through Tumblr
and trawling through tons of tutorials on YouTube
to try and copy some of the designs. There are some absolutely amazing nail artists out there, some of my favourites are WAH nails, the Illustrated Nail and Nail Porn. It is fantastic what you can do with a little imagination on a tiny canvas. I tried to get in the Olympic mood earlier this year by putting the Barbados flag on my thumb! A great way to show my support without going overboard!
Am I an Addict?
As a self confessed nail-varnish addict
, I love the way your nails are a simple way to update your outfit as well as your mood. I love the polka-dot design (As you can tell), as it keeps it interesting and there are a multitude of colour combinations.
On a budget?
And if you’re watching the pennies, doing your nails yourself is a great way to have something to concentrate on without craving clothes and accessories. It is all about creativity and experimentation
, there is no right or wrong way to do your nails, just grab a few polishes and get painting! Just remember to use a base-coat and a top-coat to seal in the colour.
