As some of you may know it was my birthday on Tuesday (I turned 25 which feels like a grown up age!) so I decided to take a few days off from blogging, to open presents, go shopping and eat chocolate!
But all back to normal now! So I thought I would show you the nails I created for my Birthday day.
Loving nail art so much I definitely needed some nice nails for my birthday. My first thoughts were to do some pretty Cupcake nails, which I've never actually tried before but then I spotted some amazing Unicorn nails on the Wah Nails Instagram account and was tempted to do them also (I will be doing these very soon as they are A-mazing!). But I didn't want to mess up either so I went for a favourite of mine - cherry nails in a slightly Cath Kidston style.
I love all things cherries... especially Maraschino Cherries in a jar so cherry nails are something that make me happy... and they are so easy to do with a dotting tool!
For the base I used Models Own Snow White (from the MO duo nail polish as my Collection 2000 manicure white has gone a bit gloopy) and then MUA Pistachio Ice Cream. For the cherries I used a medium sized dotting tool with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Rapid Red. Then for the little cherry stems I used Beauty UK in Go Green with a small nail art brush, just creating little 'V' shapes. To finish off I used a small dotting tool to dot white dots on to the background and to highlight the odd cherry. Lastly I applied a clear top coat, which always makes nail art look finished off.
Would love to know if anyone would be interested in seeing the birthday presents I received in a haul style post. As I received quite a few beauty presents and some lovely homeware gifts!
