#Naillinkup – Black and White border nails (Ezquerra inspired)

Arrgh, this week, I am the worst blogger in the world! Sorry my darlings. I’m spending a lot of time at work, and a lot of time working on getting my Spring range lined up for the Boutique (if all goes well, it will be live on Saturday!). So, if you want to grab some bargains in the sale section, now’s your chance!

The NAILLINKUP theme that I’ve done this evening is Borders. I don’t have anything against border manis, but I’ve never done one before. I guess they’re just one of those things that haven’t really grabbed me. That’s what’s so nice about doing a Nail Art Challenge though, getting out of your comfort zone and inspiration from elsewhere. My border mani is with a base of Barry M WhiteContinue reading

Nail Art News – Invading the Comic Book World

Happy Hump Day! The worst of the week is behind us, woot!

I know I’m not the only slightly geeky one out there, I think you’ll like this post!

Do you remember when we did our Comic Book Nails for the OMD Challenge? These ones :

Comic Book Nail Art - 2000AD - Judge Dredd - Tharg-005


They are based on 2000 AD, a UK-based anthology that’s been coming out weekly since the 70’s. It’s a bit niche I guess, but combines a lot of different genres, from Sci-Fi to Fantasy to Horror, with doses of mythology and lots of back references. I stopped reading it when I moved to France as an International subscription was beyond my means, but got back into it when they started making digital copies available. My mum still has cupboards full of my old progs (issues)! Continue reading

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 30. Favourite Comic Book (or Character)

Only one day left to go now ! Have you all chosen your nail art for ‘Recreate’ day? I haven’t, there are just so many that I’d like to have a go at.

Crafty, Eeeek and I are so pleased that some of you have chosen our challenge to be your first, and we are so impressed with everything you’ve all come up with, I’ve had so many “why didn’t I think of that?!” moments this month ! But if you haven’t finished your entries, you still have until the 5th August to add them, so don’t forget 🙂

So you’re all going to learn something new about me today. Comics and graphic novels have been such a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, I am so glad that Eeeek suggested this as a theme !

I’ve always been a bit on the shy side (not that that stops me from being a motormouth, mind), and I spent absolutely hours when I was a kid in the school library, with my nose in Tintin and Asterix comics.

When I turned teenager, that turned into an obsession with other comics like Spiderman, Batman, and my all time favourite – 2000AD !

2000AD is a weekly anthology published in the UK, and every newsagent I ever lived near back home carried a subscription for me 🙂 if you like comics, I strongly recommend that you check it out. Plus, you can download issues, which is pretty handy if you don’t live in the UK.
