Manicure Monday // Sweet Daisy

5 May 2014


For no particular reason, I haven't been doing as much nail art lately. I can't fathom why not because it's one of my favourite things to do. As you know by now, I'm a compulsive nail painter - I never have bare nails, and I particularly love how creative you can be with nail art. It's not the world's greatest skill and it's hardly the most useful, but still, it gives me that little sense of achievement when I complete a pretty design, and a rewarding feeling of pride when someone notices them and I get to say I did them myself  :) So all that being said, I've decided to get back to doing more nail art, I'll be aiming to post my humble efforts at least a couple of times a month. 

On Saturday, I was feeling all 'Springy' and decided a muted, feminine nail would make a nice change from the hot pinks and corals I've been overdoing these past few weeks. Daisies are one of the easiest nail arts to do, but the results are super sweet, don't you think?!

Also, can we take a second to talk about this Chanel perfume bottle phone case. You've probably seen it in a few other places too by now, but isnt it so fun?!!

    1. Yes, you should definitely try it. Daisy nail art is actually not too difficult :)

      The phone case can be found on a few stores online, if you google it you should be able to find them :)

  13. Your nails are so, so pretty - you should definitely feel proud that you did them :) I'm going to have to have a go at daisies later! Can't believe the perfume bottle is a phone case, I didn't even notice I just thought you were holding a perfume bottle! xxx
