31 Peacock Nails

Scientists and experts are still learning about the stunning peacock, possibly one of the most beautiful creatures to grace planet Earth. With its long tail feathers and out-of-this-world colours, the bird has been the inspiration for many an artist over the centuries, but it seems there are a few secrets hidden beneath those wonderful plumes. For example, did you know that when the peacocks shake their tail feathers, they also make a very low-frequency humming noise that other peacocks can hear, but humans can’t hear? We didn’t know that either, and neither did scientists until just a few years back. It’s wonderful how many new things we still have to learn about the animals we kinda take for granted, don’t you think?
Anyway, fun peacock facts aside, we’ve decided to pay the elegant animal some love. Some nail love, to be exact. We hope you’re sitting comfortably because you are about to see some serious #nailinspo!

1 – Beautiful & Elegant Peacock Nail Art

Let’s get straight to the point, these animals are absolutely blooming beautiful. A great way of using those metallic shade s that you never seem to reach for, the beautiful peacock design has been hand-painted with a dark, black background. If you wanted your peacocks to stand out a bit more, there’s nothing wrong with substituting that black background for a lighter shade — silver, perhaps? Or maybe even a gold or bronze tone? We loved the way the black has been used in this design though, we must admit.

21 Snowy Nail Designs

Hello, you wonderful lot! Can you believe how fast this year has zipped right by? Halloween is now over, and that can only mean one thing … The clocks go back, the nights get darker, the weather gets colder, and Santa starts brushin’ the dust off the ol’ sleigh. It’s a magical time of year, and, if we’re lucky, it might even be a Snowy time of the year too. It’s been a while since the UK had a good white Christmas. It’s definitely overdue.
Whether we get a white Christmas or not, we’re going to love everything about the snow. So much so, in fact, that we’ve been paying some rather special attention to it lately. As much as we’d love to jet off for a winter getaway, it’s not looking likely. It’s okay though, not all is lost.
Hey, if we can’t go to the snow, we’ll bring the snow to us!

1 – Ice Crystals

It’s a very simple look, but in terms of Snowy Nail designs, it could just be one of the best. White and blue are two colours that we often associate with cold, snow, and ice. It just makes perfect sense to use that as the starting point for your next nail look. Simply start with a base coat, because it’s super important, and then add your white base shade. Make sure you pick a good white polish though, as the cheaper, lower-quality stuff tends to be really thin, streaky, or just not ‘pigmented’ enough. With white polish, you’ll also more than likely need a couple of coats.
Once your base coat is dry, simply use nail embellishments, transfers, or decals to get the blue ice crystal look. A touch of glitter and some top coat completes the look.

21 Christmas 2018 Mani Ideas

How’s your Christmas planning going? We’re not getting very much done at all in the way of Christmas gift-buying, outfit planning, or food-thinking. Despite saying each year that we’ll start things off earlier next year, we never do. Life just gets in the way. It’s such a pain!
How are your nails looking? Have you even started thinking about your festive manicure designs yet? Just in case you haven’t, and you’re in the market for some festive inspiration, we’ve got a few looks that you might want to take a quick peek at. Some of them are easily achieved at home, whereas others will more than likely require the booking of an appointment with a nail technician. There’s plenty of unique and wonderful designs, however, so we think that there’s bound to be one that ticks your boxes. Don’t forget to let us know what you think though. There’s a little comment box beneath this post, and we can’t wait to hear which of these festive looks are your favourite …

1 – Cute Pink Christmas Mani

Pastel pink for Christmas … What are your views on this? We love it, and that’s why these little delights have made their way on to this list. With the white reindeers and the silver glitter addition, it’s certainly ticking all the right festive boxes for us. There’s something terribly romantic about them, don’t you think? Plus, we’ve done red so many times, we were dying for a different colour to try out this year. We could probably say the same for green, gold, and maybe even purple and blue too if we’re being honest. Pink saves the day … (Just like it always does!)

31 Looks: Pretty Pink Nail Inspiration

Did you know that the colour pink wasn’t always used as a symbol for a baby girl? In fact, for many years, the colour pink was actually associated with emotion, rather than gender — happiness and joy. And, of course, thanks to Mean Girls, “on Wednesdays we wear pink”. Just in case you needed some #nailinspo for your next manicure, we would like to present to you some pretty pink nail inspiration.

1 – Pink Chequered Gradient Nails

It looks complicated and fussy, but these cute chequered gradient nails are cool because of how simple they are. You should first start by painting your nails with a base coat, because this helps to protect your nails, stop them from being stained yellow with bright colours. It also helps to make your mani last longer, especially when used with a good top coat too. Once your base coat has dried, simple use tape to mask off the areas that you would like to leave white. The rest of the nail — the parts that you want to paint in your contrasting colour — will be left un-taped. The gradient effect can be achieved by using two or three shades of pink, getting lighter or darker, painted in stripes onto a clean makeup sponge. When you dab that sponge onto your nail, the un-taped sections will get their little pink makeover, but the taped sections won’t. Again, once everything has dried, simply remove the tape and you’re good to go, ready to apply your top coat and rock those pretty pink nails. Simpler than you thought, right?

31 Camouflage Nail Designs

Whether you’re welcoming home a soldier from battle or just dig the camo style, we think you’re going to love these camouflage nail designs. Long, short, pointed, dipped, traditionally coloured or wonderfully modernised; there is a look to suit every camo-loving babe, and we can’t wait to hear about your favourites.
Don’t forget to show these artists’ behind these fabulous looks some love too. You’ll find their links beneath each image and we definitely think they’re worthy of a cheeky like/follow … What do you think? (Also: where would we get our inspiration from if it wasn’t for them?)

1 – Liquid Dripped Camouflage Nail Designs

The cool dripping effect used on these camouflage nail designs has been very popular lately, especially being used as part of the packaging and design of Kylie Jenner’s makeup line. It’s actually a really easy effect to do yourself too, should you fancy getting creative at home. Using those gold tones is a really good way of glamming up quite a dull and otherwise dark style. Camouflage is meant to make you fade into your surroundings after all …

21 Spring Nail Looks

It really does feel like the cold winter weather has been hanging around forever. The warmer temperatures and sunnier days are most definitely long overdue, and we think it’s time to celebrate the impending spring season. Flowers will bloom, birds will chirp, baby animals are born, and life is just better in general. That’s what we think anyway. There’s something quite magical about spring, especially when the trees and flowers explode into life.
Just in case you also feel like celebrating spring, we would like to show you a few spring nail looks that we think are perfect for the occasion.

1 – Green Ombre for Spring

We love the idea of using this wonderful mint green shade for our spring nails. Green is the colour of grass and the leaves that come with wonderful spring flowers. It’s a colour often used to symbolise rebirth, life, and empowerment. That means it’s perfect for your next mani idea! We’re utterly obsessed with everything about these nails, but that white to mint green ombré effect is something else, don’t you think?
