#NAILLINKUP – Health and Wellness

#NAILLINKUP - Health and Wellness-003

This week’s Nail Art Ideas Linkup theme is Health and Wellness. Thanks for that Jax! I have spent all week trying to work out what to do 😉

My bloke suggested trying to do beads of sweat on nails… Nahh, that’s not going to happen! So I came up with a much more reasonable alternative… Fruity nails!

Announcing the January Nail Art Ideas Linkup Themes!

Hello lovies, it’s officially January now! You know what that means: a new year, new hopes and dreams, and new resolutions. Well, we know how disappointing it can be to make a resolution and then never follow through with it. So Brijits Digits, Craftynail, and Eeeek! Nail Polish! are here to help you. Here’s what to do….

Step 1. Resolve to join our January N.A.I.L. Challenge.

Step 2. Do as little as ONE manicure for our N.A.I.L. Challenge.

Step 3. Revel in your high levels of self-esteem, personal satisfaction and increased sense of power- you have completed one of your 2014 new years resolutions!


If you’re thinking of trying a nail challenge, the Nail Art Ideas Linkup is the one to try! It’s so flexible, you cannot fail at this challenge!!!!!! We have four themes for January but you don’t need to do all of them. More details at bottom of this post. Ready for the 4 themes???

*We have two different January widgets for you, just pick your fave of the two!


Health & Wellness (THEME 1)- Do you want to get healthier in 2014? Maybe this theme will help motivate you? Paint some gym equipment on your nails, or fruits n veg, or if you want to be more zen how about some nice meditative colors?

Inspired by Pinterest (THEME 2)- Pinterest is swimming with inspiring nail art ideas. Pick one of your favorite manis from that site and re-do it your own way! You can make an exact replica of a pinterest nail design, or you can utilize a design for liberal inspiration. Just make sure to share the love by referencing the pin that inspired you!

Opposite Day (THEME 3)- Did you know that Jan 25th is officially named OPPOSITE DAY? To praise this holiday let’s paint our nails opposite of our usual style! Do you hate water marbling? Try it! Do you rarely wear blue nail polish? Well, wear it! Step outside your comfort zone for this theme and surprise yourself!

Border Mani (THEME 4)- A border mani is when you paint a border on the rim of your nails, or maybe just embellish the borders of your nails with dots or glitter, etc. You can google the search term BORDER MANI to find tons of inspiration. If you’ve never tried one before, now’s the time!

#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…

#Naillinkup – Shopping

For me, the best part of shopping at this time of year is buying presents! It’s the perfect excuse to spoil my friends and family 🙂

I also really really love wrapping presents. I mean, printing up pretty labels, adding a tonne of ribbon…. it looks so pretty under the tree ! So my “Shopping” Nails are actually more like gift wrap nails, haha….

November NAIL Widget

  • The dates are just ‘suggested’ dates. Submit your manicure whenever you want in November.
  • You don’t need to do all four themes if you don’t want to. No pressure!

Solar Eclipse :

Movember Moustaches :

Animals & Pets :

Feathers :

December tries to steal the limelight with all the festive holiday manicures… but we refuse to let November sit on the sidelines! Let’s get creative with our November nails!

The Movember Moustaches theme will be especially fun. If you’ve never heard of Movember here’s a quick explanation from wikipedia: Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities. Afterall, who doesn’t love muchos moustachios!?! And the natural place to put a moustache is on your nails, no?

Nail Art Ideas Linkup – Autumn Trees

Woah, Thursday already ladies! That’s good, that means it’s Friday tomorrow 🙂

I was going to do a swatch for you tonight, but then this idea popped into my head for ‘autumn trees’ for the 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! 

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

Autumn Trees
