Moyou London Mother Nature 01 Stamping Plate

Moyou London Mother Nature 01 Nail Art Stamping Plate

I’m so glad it’s finally the weekend, and I get a bit of time for me šŸ™‚ it’s been a stressful, busy week, and I’m planning on spending this weekend preparing a few posts for next week, which, as far as I’m concerned, is the best way of relaxing

This is a post I actually prepared last weekend but didn’t have time to finish, which pretty much explains how little spare time I’ve had this week!

I first heard aboutĀ MoYou-LondonĀ (yes, you will get told off if you only call them ‘MoYou’!) when Craftynail published this article – it’s the press-release for theĀ Mother Nature Collection, and I just love them! I spent a lot of time trying to decide which ones to order. And at the end of last year, I gave in, and ordered all 6! So today’s post is aboutĀ Mother Nature 01. You can see that, on the plate, they called it ‘landscape collection’, so I guess it wasn’t originally intended to go with the others or the name got changed or something?

#Naillinkup – Festive French

We’ve had a productive Saturday. The groceries are in and we’re (nearly) ready to pack to go away for Christmas. We also went on a trial gym session this morning. I have muscles that ache that I have never felt ache before! The gym seems quite nice. It’s a shame that there isn’t one nearer to the flat, but it’s clean, well-equipped, and everyone seems pretty friendly. The guy that showed us the machines was funny though. He said how my boyfriend would be interested in the weight-lifting machines, but I should stick to cardio, being a girl and all… I did point out to him that there is no reason I shouldn’t try to tone some muscles up, haha…

Anywhoo, that’s enough about my glamourous life! I’m skipping ahead to next week’s Festive French mani because I’m a bit stuck on Winter Solstice. Not all of the themes that we picked for the NAIL linkup are easy! That said, I’m quite pleased that the Winter Solstice is here, it means that the shortest day of the year is over with, and we can look forward to seeing (slowly but surely) more daylight…

#Naillartlinkup – Snowflakes

#Naillinkup - Snowflakes

Happy Tuesday. Yep, sorry, it’s not even nearly the weekend yet šŸ˜¦

I’m really bad at keeping up with our NAIL themes. I kind of feel bad, since I’m one of the organisers, but I’m one of those people that needs quite fixed and relatively urgent time limits, otherwise I end up procrastinating and forgetting. Which is odd, since I’m also one of those people that everyone else thinks is super organised! Well, actually, for those that know me best (hi, Mum!), I force myself to be organised because I’m a naturally messy, disorganised person!

So this month, IĀ promise I’ll keep up! This will probably mean I do them all early, haha.Ā  Continue reading

Nail Art Ideas Linkup – Autumn Trees

Woah, Thursday already ladies! That’s good, that means it’s Friday tomorrow šŸ™‚

I was going to do a swatch for you tonight, but then this idea popped into my head for ‘autumn trees’Ā for theĀ Nail Art Ideas Linkup. I’ve been following the entries, and couldn’t work out how to do it ‘my way’, so I was pleased to come up with this!Ā 

The base colour for the French is one of my own –Ā Fools Gold.Ā

Nail Art Ideas Linkup – Sport

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not a sporty person! I was always one of those kids at school that just hung out in the gym when everyone else went outside to do sport. So it was quite difficult to choose between sports that I don’t play – or watch – for this theme!

In the end I settled on a baseball-style nail art, it looks clean and graphic, and makes for a pretty good adaptation of a French tip šŸ™‚

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 21. Stamping

I’m so glad I had this one pre-prepared ! (there’s no point denying it, my fingers are their old colour and my nails aren’t so long)

I had a French mani for work one monday, and on my way home (I have a very long commute) couldn’t decide what to do with it ! Sabrina suggested flowers, and I decided I would stamp them to pre-prepare a mani for the challenge šŸ˜€
