It has been an absurdly long time since I attempted anything more than plain colour on my nails (and I've only done that a handful of times in the past year) but I was at a hen party this weekend which included a lovely mid-afternoon pamper session (complete with tea in real cups and saucers) Not only did I discover a love for honey masks (more on that in another post I'm sure, I loved it and I'll be trying another one very soon!) but we all also tried out some nail art- and I forgot how much I really do love it.
Because of the 80's theme I wanted something bright and fun, and without any real direction I chose a base colour of BarryM Shocking Pink, and picked out No7 Poolside Blue and BarryM Amethyst Glitter to go with it.
I know they're not the neatest nails (especially the stripes on my index finger) but I am thrilled to re-introduce myself to the wonderful world of nail art. Hopefully with my housemate moving out and boyfriend moving in I should have a lot more space (and more time at home where my nail polish is) to paint my nails and get experimenting.
The downside is that Dale doesn't even understand why I'd want to paint just my ring finger a different colour, or add glitter only on that nail. *sigh* He has so much to learn...
Are there any new nail art trends or techniques that I've missed?
