10 Polka Dot Nail art ideas

Today I thought I’d have a look back at some of my previous manis using a dotting tool. Of course you don’t have to use a traditional nail art dotting tool, to do something similar you could use the head of a pin, the end of a hair grip (which is what I started with years ago), a tooth pick or the blunt end of a pen, they are all easy to use and you could even use a combination of all of them to create different sized dots.

Alternatively, if you’d like to go for it and get yourself some dotting tools you can pick them up from Pound stores, Sallys or sometimes Superdrug, Claires accessories and Boots carry them.

So here we go:

Starting with super simple but effective lilac and mauve dots finished with a matte topcoat.


Autumn inspired dotticure


So easy, yet so strikingly spotted


Dotted flowers


Jelly dotticure


Easy and classy black on matte gold


Fun Ladybird nails


A dot within a dot & glitter – a classic combo


A dotted fade


Daring pink & orange colour combo – I love it!


Please let me know which you like best. Have a good week!

Daisy Dreams Manicure

Hi, I hope that you had a good weekend?

Today I have a summery mani featuring metal silver daisies. Now I’m not entirely sure where I got these I’m afraid to say so can’t give you a link, but the polishes used are:

Pink – China Glaze ‘Diva Bridge’

Grey – Models Own ‘Lunar Grey’

The daisies are stuck on using Gem Tack which is my go to glue.

Zoya Ana Satin

Hi, I hope that you had a great weekend.

Just a quick one today. Zoya ‘Ana’ Satin from the gorgeous Naturel Satins Collection which launched winter 2015. The whole collection is absolutely gorgeous and you can still buy them from here.

The colour is best described as a light toasted almond cream which dries between a matte & a gloss which I’d say is a very subtle classy nude.

Zoya Ana-Satin

Once completely dry I added the flowers which are water decals from Born Pretty Store. They were very easy to use and I topped them with a satin top coat.

Do you have a favourite nude colour?, if you do I’d love to hear from you!

Have a lovely week all! x

Pink & Red Flower Nails


Pink & Red Flower Nails

Dark red & pink manicure with handpainted flowers & leaves

I’ve been trying to come up with a creative description for these nails and all I can come up with is ‘Pink & Red Flower Nails‘! how rubbish am I 🙂

For this Mani I used a base of two coats of the new ILNP ‘Daisy Jane‘ which is a stunning pastel pink jelly with a subtle holo. I then went on to paint my index and pinky finger with Cadillacquer ‘Glowing Christmas‘ and painted the flowers on freehand using a fine brush and the following polishes:

Nails Inc ‘Pavillion Road

Nails Inc ‘Saville Row‘ &

China Glaze ‘OMG a UFO

I hope that you like!
