nail art inspiration

those of you who have followed my blog for a while will have seen my poor attempts at nail art over the past 12 months. i just don't think it's ever going to be something i'm good at.... especially with my short, peely nails. (not exactly the most attractive things in the world!)

 
what with my lack of talent i can't help but go and gasp over the amazing nails that seem to be plentiful on blogs and tumblr. so here are some of my favourites that i've collected....



have you got any amazing nail art you've done? i'd love to have a look!

  3. I like the gold sparkly ombre ones the best, but wish they were a little shorter! I hate those super-long false nails. Or any false nails.

    Natural is best!

  5. You should get some of those nail paper things! Theyre really easy and have some awesome designs on them. Otherwise you can get nail stickers. I got a pack for my birthday of little diamantes and flowers, and they look so cute with minimal effort. Just paint your nail one colour, stick a flower in one corner and voila!
    And there are some awesome YT tutorials for easy nail designs. Some of them are really simple but look so good. One cheat that I've used before is to get some blank false nails and paint them before sticking them on. Turns out so much neater than trying to paint left handed or having to practically break your arm to get the right angle.
