Hello to anyone that might read this some day!
My New Years Resolution is to start a nail art blog. I spend SO many hours painting my nails, and I thought it was about time that I did something with that! It's as good a justification as any!
I got into nail art in June 2012. Before then the most adventurous thing I had tried on my nails was a funky french manicure. I became obsessed in a matter of minutes and I have remained that way ever since. I spend at least an hour a day reading blogs, Google image searching for my next manicure, shopping for nail varnish etc.
When I first started, I couldn't believe how easy it was to create such beautiful nails. With picture and video tutorials, and so many blogs and images for inspiration, I have found it relatively easy to create loads of looks.
This blog will mainly focus on nail art. My own personal interpretation of 'real' nail art is done with a tiny brush, and puddles of polish. However I am also getting really into stamping at the moment, so there will be plenty of that! Also probably some methods I consider 'cheating' (nail stickers etc). Over Christmas , for example, I used a lot of snowflake stickers, because I cannot draw them as tiny and perfect!
I don't plan on doing much polish swatching, as I don't think I can offer anything that you cannot find better somewhere else. I am never the first person to get a new collection, and my camera at the moment isn't the best for showing the true colours of polish (as you will see lol). However from time to time I may post some of my favourite polishes, or some that you do not see as much on blogs (unfortunately I don't mean cool indie polishes or expensive imports, more the type you find in cheap little shops that you never see again lol) I do already have some pictures prepared of a beautiful brand of polish I found on eBay and have fallen in love with.
I primarily use British brands (or at least brands easily available in Britain) mostly ones you can buy in Boots or Superdrug, and then I have a nice little OPI collection, some China Glaze glitters, and quite a few random brands bought from eBay. I also own a couple of aenglands, and I am waiting for my first indie glitters to arrive from America!
So I guess that's pretty much everyting I wanted to say. I won't be posting so much text in future, but I felt that I kind of had to explain myself a little bit before I start posting pictures.
I wonder if anyone will ever read this? That's a weird thought. If not, I'm basically just talking to myself. That's ok though I do that anyway!
If you have taken the time to read this, well then I am extremely grateful, and you are obviously a totally awesome person!
