Matte Skittles (from the archives)

Hey guys :)

Today I have a post for you that includes some nail art I did last year but never posted anywhere. It's new for you but not new for me. 

For these mix and match nails, I decided to use a white base on all of my nails. For my thumb and little finger, I used a small detail brush to outline the shape from the cuticle and then filled the rest of the nail in with my chosen colour. I used the detail brush for both my index and ring finger and a dotting tool for my middle. I added a matte top coat to the design.

Colours used:
Barry M Nail Paint - Blueberry Ice Cream
Rimmel - White
LA Colors Art Deco striper - Blue Glitter

I'm going to try and post once a week but I'm not making any promises, being a student teacher is hard work and I don't have a lot of time to myself anymore (hence the archive post today). Thank you to everyone is still sticking by me, it is much appreciated :)

Love Emily x

Apologies....and Vintage Spring Florals

Hey guys,

I'd like to start by saying how sorry I am that I haven't blogged since the start of last month *hangs head in shame*.

As some of you may know, I'm currently studying at university, I'm training to be a primary school teacher and so my course is one of the most intense courses you could pick. I had 3 assignments to do last month and I have another 2 to do that I have to hand in in 4 weeks. So I'll be a little MIA for this month as well...I am honestly going to try and update you guys a little more though (you can go follow me on my social sites for even more updated up to date info ;)).

Anyway, on to the nails....
I did these nails a couple of weeks ago and they lasted me for at least a week before they started chipping, I took them off and I haven't painted my nails since. That should be an indication of how busy I have been!

I began doing the roses first because I think they are quite spring like and then I wanted to add something else to the rest of my nails. I stumbled across this blogpost and decided that polka dots were the way to go.

They turned out like a vintage rose design - I love them! Someone said to me that they resemble Cath Kidston and I kind of agree with them.

That's all for this week guys, I am going to try and back to a regular blogging schedule. Leave a comment below telling me which day you would like me to upload and I will try my absolute hardest to have a post for you.

Love Emily x
