Nail Art

My first attempts at nail art

This week I have been a poorly beauty blogger and I have spent the weekend stuck at home with a cold. If you follow me on Twitter you'll know this becasue I haven't stopped moaning about it. Anyway between napping and feeling sorry for myself I decided to use the time to try my hand at nail art. Now I do like nail art but I don't often have the time or patience to create something that is temporary but I actually found that it doesn't take as long as I expected. This is my first attempt and I probably spent 20 minutes in all, which included painting time, nail art and drying. Now this is my first ever attempt so there are some slight mistakes and I was poorly so they're a little rough around the edges but I am quite pleased with the results.

My first attempt at nail art. What do you think?

I thought I'd give a little explanation about how I created this look just in case anyone wants to recreate it. 

All the products I used. I really need to invest in a top coat!

There we go, What do you think?Not too bad for a first attempt I hope! 


  1. Wow that's your first attempt? Looks great! Love the stems with the flowers and great idea with the hair pins. I really must get this nail art pen too! x

  2. They look great for being your first try! Ugh. I have such a hard time doing art on my nails!!

  3. That looks really good! I love practising different nail art designs.. It's a lot easier than it looks x
