Daisy Chains

As the weather has been so nice recently I thought it would be perfect to have some daisy nails

As its summer I wanted a nice bright colour in the background so I chose this lovely pistachio green- but i think any pastel colour would look great- Barry M do amazing pastel colours in yellow, blue, pink and many more! :) 
To get a more precise flower I used a nail art pen from Avon- with a brush on one end and a silver ballpoint end on the other side for a more precise drawing
After painting the initial nail mint green  I then chose to do daisies it would also look effective to do the flowers in other colours if you wanted but I liked the idea of having white and yellow
I painted a four way flower in white with the brush- and then with the other  end of the nail art pen i did the center parts with yellow

I love this design and think it is perfect for the summer days :) 

Hope you enjoy and feel free to comment

Pink and Purple Tips

Sorry for the lack of posts recently I have been painting nails I just haven't got round to posting on here until now 
With all the summery weather recently I thought I would show you some beautiful beach ready nails 

I love the new pastel trend so I thought I would give these two colours a test and I just love them together they look great .
I started off by painting the nails pink which just reminds me of sun cream on a hot day, and then I chose to do the statement nail in purple but these can be interchanged or other colours- a lemon yellow with peach would look fresh from the fruit salad bowl 
Then you can either use tape specially for nails or like me just do it free hand and do semi-circle on the tip in the opposing colour. 
I think they look intricate and professional and the best part is you can do it with discount colours so you don't have to spend loads on a professional manicure 
Get fab nails in the comfort of your own home! :)
Hope you have enjoyed
