Primarily nail art here at the moment. I love things that capture my eye, and try to make them too. All of my designs are hand-painted, as I am too poor to afford a nail pen kit.

Based in Oxford and the Lake District. If you'd like your nails done, drop me a message. No request is too zany.

My first time doing the spun sugar technique.  Decided right after I saw Sarah’s nails of it I knew I just had to try it out.  And I have to say I actually loved it!  So easy and fun to make!

I still hate the “delicate print” day of the challenge, but I am so thrilled with what I came up with. Baroque nails! I could also have done these for the fashion inspired day as baroque is a big trend right now, but here they are! I think they’re so so elegant and I kinda wish I’d made my other nails just plain and black, but it’s cool. I can always change them! #31dc2012 #nailart #nails #baroque (Taken with Instagram)

Guys, it’s easier than ever to find an image source by dragging and dropping into Google. Don’t take shortcuts - give specific, not generic, credit where it’s due. The reblog button’s there for a reason. If you’re going to repost as a photoset, link to the original in your caption. You’d want them to do the same for you. 

Artists: keep up (or start) putting watermarks on - it tends to do the trick. Thank you to those who did for helping confirm search results.

Also - these are all beautiful.
