L.A.R.K. Scarf

Hey everyone, it’s day 2 of L.A.R.K.‘s 3 day SALE & you don’t want to miss it!

So today, I have for you folks a lovely Hot Air Balloon (scarf)!  The design was hand drawn by my friend Miss L.A.R.K then printed onto a large (100cm x 177cm) piece of fabric…  There are smaller scarves with different designs but this was my personal favourite.

L.A.R.K. Clutch

A while back I won a contest for a handmade clutch by L.A.R.K. (which stands for Life’s A Real Kaleidoscope, & also incidentally owned by a friend of mine & no the contest wasn’t rigged, I won fair & square) & I’ve been meaning to do nail art inspired by my lovely bag but somehow never got around to it.

So last week Miss L.A.R.K. & myself were talking about meeting up & I thought this would be the perfect time to do my tribute to her…  The lunch didn’t happen due to both of us being busy at the very last moment but somehow, serendipitously, the nail art coincides with a SALE so you guys can all go get yourself some lovely bags & scarves all handmade by my friend!  Sale will last for 3 days so hurry!

Bill’s Wedding Day – Winter Soldier

As promised, here’s the sequel to yesterday’s Captain America nail art that I did for my buddy Bill’s wedding – The Winter Soldier!
This was waaaaaay hard as I didn’t have an exact colour match to the new Captain America uniform he wore in Winter Soldier so I had to mix 3 different blues for it but we got there in the end. :D

Bill’s Wedding Day – Captain America

Hey everyone, I’m back!  It’s been a busy 2 weeks but it’s also been a load of fun, especially since I was a groomsman at my buddy Bill’s wedding last weekend!  Yes, you read that right.  I was a groomsman.
I was actually so busy I actually forgot to take photos of the event so other than the wedding car I don’t even have a pic of the 7 of us in our Captain America gear.  Don’t worry, I do have nail art!

Tippy

TGIF folks!  Long weekend (Sat to Mon) for me so WOOHOO!  Anyway, I have for you guys today a classic French tip with a matte twist.  I had to mix the black satin with the pastel gray to get this colour & it took me 2 tries to get the colour consistent (as in, same on every finger because the first time it was an utter disaster & I had to scrub off & start again) before painting the shimmer tip & matte topcoat on.

Magenta Tribal

Happy Tuesday everyone, how was your (long) weekend (if you were in UK)?  I have something simple for you, just a squiggle actually because I didn’t actually have time to do much (couldn’t even be bothered to wait for the paint to dry, hence the smudging – I apologise)…
