Nail Art Ideas Linkup – Themes for April

It is with heavy hearts that we announce this. We are discontinuing the Nail Art Ideas Linkup challenge that we’ve been running since there hasn’t been enough interest.

Hold up, we are totally kidding! April Fools!!!

Did we fool you, or are you too clever for our tactics?? Not a chance that we would discontinue the #NAILLINKUP! The only month we are skipping is July. Because that’s when we host our huge 2nd annual 31 day OMD nail challenge! More info on our prompts and prizes in the coming months.
Let’s get back to April! It’s one of the rare months where we can squeeze 5 prompts in instead of 4. For your nail art pleasure, here are our ideas-


RAIN (week 1) There’s an old adage that says April showers bring May flowers. Well, maybe not in all parts of the world. But still, we all know about rain! Let’s see your nails painted with rain, droplets, umbrellas, or however you want to interpret this theme!

BIRDS (week 2) Did you know that April 8th is officially Draw a Picture of a Bird Day? Let’s ‘draw’ birds on our nails to celebrate this weird holiday! Of course, you can use a stamping kit or some decals if you’d like.

EASTER (week 3) Bunnies, colored eggs, candies and green grass! We expect to see lots of cute nails for this prompt.

DIAMONDS (week 4) What is the birthstone for April? Diamonds. And we can’t think of a prettier way to decorate your nails. After all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

DOTTICURE (week 5) We like to throw a nail art ‘technique’ in the mix every month and polka dots are a classic!

Rules for Nail Art Ideas Linkup (N.A.I.L.)……

    • Do one of the weekly themes, or do them all. It’s flexible!
    • The dates for each week are only suggestions- you can post your nails whenever you want in April.
    • The nail art ideas/themes are open to interpretation so you can create whatever kind of design you want! Stamps, stickers, acrylics- anything goes!
    • We encourage all nail enthusiasts to join in no matter what platform you use; blog, FB, IG, Tumblr, etc…
    • Feel free to post our widget on your site and you can use hashtag #NAILLINKUP on your social media.
    • Lastly but most importantly, don’t forget to share your nail pics via the inlinkz below.

#Naillinkup – Gradient

#Naillinkup - Gradient Nails - MoYou Stamping and China Glaze

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Mine was nice. I’ve been messing about a lot with jewellery making, and my new flame-thrower (soldering flame) arrived 🙂 I haven’t really used it yet, but I did light it up, and it’s very powerful! I’m a bit scared of losing my eyebrows… Continue reading

#Naillinkup – Valentines Day

Hey hey hey, it’s the weekend!

Unfortunately this weekend looks to be one of staying in the warm and drinking lots of ginger tea, because I’ve caught a bug. Don’t worry, the Bloke has been sent out to the pharmacy, and has already started his hot-lemon-and-honey duties, so hopefully it won’t last too long. Anyway, that’s why I didn’t post this yesterday. I was tempted to cancel the restaurant reservation, but we went anyway. It was lovely and warm in there, and after a couple of glasses of Valpolicella, I felt okay again, but totally crashed when we got home.

This is my last Valentines nail art for this year, and it’s for the NAIL Linkup challenge. I’ve done a lot of heart-based nail art this week, but that’s mostly because it’s not a style I would usually do much. It’s nice to change!

GOT Polish Challenge – Valentines

It’s nearly Valentines Day! And, even better than that, it’s nearly Friday 😀

So this afternoon at the office I got a bunch of roses! It was a lovely surprise. We don’t usually celebrate Valentines day, so I wasn’t expecting it at all. And, even better, because my bloke knows that the flower delivery is usually in the afternoon, he got it sent a day early, so I can make the most of it, in case it wilts over the weekend! Plus, they smell delicious 🙂

Today’s theme for the GOT Polish Challenge is Valentines.

#Naillinkup – Red (Butter London Saucy Jack)

I hope everyone’s had/having a nice weekend!

For my part, I dared to have a lie-in yesterday, followed by a lazy morning, so since yesterday afternoon, I’ve been stressing over everything that I haven’t got done yet 😦 don’t you just hate Sunday Night Blues?!


For the red prompt of our Nail Art Ideas Linkup, I (eventually) decided on Butter London‘s Saucy Jack, with some stamping in white from the Moyou London Suki 7 plate. It feels pretty appropriate for a sunny, nearly-spring kinda day!
