#Naillinkup – Bird Nail Art (MoYou-London Mother Nature 02)

Gah, this week has been a busy one! Sorry for the lack of posts! I usually love to unwind by blogging, but this week has been so frustrating, that I haven’t been able to get into the groove. Anyhow, now it’s the weekend, so I’m a lot happier, of course 🙂

Today’s nails are for the ‘Bird’ prompt in the Nail Art Ideas Linkup. Which seemed like a good time to pair Zoya Dove with MoYou-London Mother Nature 02….

#Naillinkup – Rain (April Showers) Nail Art (Dance Legend Teleportation)

I’m so glad it’s the weekend! I work in tourism, so it’s super busy at the moment, and will be for the next 3-4 weeks 😦 which doesn’t leave much time to come up with nail art. But, that’s the beauty of the Nail Art Ideas Linkup, the ideas are pretty simple and you can just do whatever fits with them. And it’s only one theme per week, which makes it easy to keep up!

For the rain theme, I just had to use my favourite holo! I mean, what’s the best thing about rain? Rainbows, of course! and the strongest holo that I have is, without a doubt, Teleportation by Dance Legend. So far, it’s the only one I have from the collection, but I would love the others too, the holo is super strong ❤

This isn’t one of the ones that was sent to me to review, I bought it with my very own money 🙂 it’s currently out of stock, but has been several times before and seems to be restocked regularly Continue reading

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-

Nail_Art_Ideas_Linkup_April_2014_

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.

31st March – 6th April : Rain (April Showers)

7th – 13th April : Birds

14th – 20th April : Easter

21st – 27th April : Diamonds

28th April – 4th May : Dotticure

#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!

#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
