In recent weeks I've found more time in my evenings. Perhaps a result of living back at my parents' house. I've spent this time feeding my obsession with painting my nails. Nail art seems to be undergoing a revival lately and I have wholly embraced this. After successfully recreating the Caviar Manicure with bargain supplies from eBay I was hooked and trawled eBay for more bargain nail tool supplies. I bought a set of dotting and marbling pens for the grand total of £1.50 from a UK supplier! I used these to create the Pink Polka Dot Manicure above for my Mum.
Pinterest is a great source of inspiration for nail art, which is where I got the idea to recreate Cath Kidston inspired nails, hence the tools above needed to attempt this.
For a first attempt and just a picture to go by I was fairly pleased with the result. I didn't have green nail polish like the girl uses in the Pinterest pin. I think this would have helped the effect a lot! Going to attempt this again in the week after seeing Burkatron's extremely professional looking Cath Kidston nails!
Do you use the tools above? Have you got any tips or inspiring nail art/designs?
