Silver Stamping & Hex Glitter

I haven't had a chance to post the last couple of weeks but I was busier than usual and even though I did paint my nails, I just didn't have the energy to post! So I hope you like the bit of bling on my nails today!

China Glaze Electric Nights - Nail Art & swatches

I am a little late to the party but I finally got most of the China Glaze Electric Nights polishes! I have been looking forward to this collection, as I saw many people in the Nail Polish world were. It has some really gorgeous, bright cremes perfect for the summer, along with some unusual, multi-coloured glitters, though I only got one of those this time. I have some quick swatches and a review below but first, I used a few of these for this nail art ...

A Summery Pond Manicure!

I have really neglected the blog badly in the last few weeks but sometimes life just gets in the way ... So a new post today to celebrate the few sunny days that we've have had here lately - a summery pond manicure that I did sometime ago but didn't get around to posting earlier. Ever since I did my first  pond manicure, I have really come to like the subtle beauty of this type of nail art.

Neon Bubbles

The manicure today is based on the Neon prompt of my March Nail Art Challenge. I do love the bright and colourful look of these nails. If anything, they are even brighter and more striking in real life.

Diagonal Dotted French Tips

I did this manicure with my March Nail Art Challenge in mind, the prompt for which was a 'Dotticure'. I don't think I do French tip manicures often enough - I am not a big fan of the plain white tips but I do love a more fun and colourful take on it, like this one ...

Colourful Neon Holi Manicure

Holi, the Festival of Colours, is a spring festival celebrated widely in India and parts of South Asia and the world. Everyone, the young and the old, colour each other with coloured powder and water and use water-guns and balloons for the water fights. Its a joyful festival to get together, forgive and forget and have a lot of fun! This Bollywood song is a good one to get an idea about how its celebrated!
