Nail Art: Gold Pitch

nail art 52 boldnails.com

Black and gold is a colour combination I come back to again and again when it comes to nail art.     Before I started putting up pictures of my nail art, I didn’t realise I liked that combination so much.  What the subconscious knows, eh?

Nail Art: Blue Fusion

I think this was the first time I did ‘skittle’ nails – where the design on each nail is different.  I love the blue colour – sadly, I can’t remember what nail polish I used here.  I also love the pop of red that the bow adds to the manicure.

Picture of the month: Glasgow

Scotland is often considered the birthplace of Geology so my deep interest in Scotland probably stems from the fact that I studied Geology at university.  This picture is of Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow.  The museum opened in 1901 and since I like going to museums (strange, I know) and love Continue reading

Nail Art: Love Nails

This would be good for Valentine’s Day, no?  In fact, I did it around that time.  I created this nail art look using a Bundle Monster stamping plate.  Usually, I find nail stamping a little fiddly but this one was fast and easy.  Perfect. :-)

The one thing you should never do when you’re upset at work.

picture for one thing not to do when upset at work

It’s inevitable that you’ll get upset or angry at some point (or many points ;-) ) in the office.  You’re surrounded by people (many of whom you would definitely not have chosen to be in close proximity with), you have crazy deadlines and you have non-work-related things on your mind.  It’s easy to feel less than happy from time to time in the workplace.  When those times come ‘round, there’s one thing I feel you should never ever do.  I know many people out there will think what I’m about to say is ‘cry’ but no.  That’s a post I’ll leave for another day.  Remind me if I don’t get to it soon ;-)  So no, it’s not ‘don’t cry’.

The one thing you should never do when you’re upset at work is

Nail Art: Little ‘Bow’ Peep

nail art boldnails.com

Generally, I prefer my nail art loud so for me, this is a toned-down look :-)  Although the colours I used here are soft, I liked the overall look in the end, probably because of the stripes and the little bow which I think give the look a bit of an oomph.
