So recently I went through my phone and realized just how many different nail designs I have had. I have tried all types of nails, gel, acrylic and natural (my current state) and I have enjoyed them all but I have now gone back to natural as my nails had begun to get seriously damaged.
There was a point late last year when I realized I was slightly addicted to the nail shop, to the point when my nail lady started pre-designing for my next visit! I was probably at the nail bar once a week. People at work were actually excited to see what I would do next, it was quite entertaining really. I suppose my personal style is funky/sophisticated, and having bold nails always ensures I bring the funk!
So I have decided to give you a few pics from my nail journey starting with my current design that I have done all by myself, hope you enjoy:
Mint Green Graphic Print: I wanted to combine the pastel trend with my love of graphic prints. This is my current everyday choice.
Leopard: This was my first attempt, I'm still trying to perfect it (Excuse the half eaten feast there was a heat wave in london!).
Sherbet all sorts: Did these when I was on holiday, fancied something fun.
Crackle effect: One of the biggest nail trends to date, I was obsessed with it for a year. I think I'm all crackled out now!
Deep Pink: Sharp and sexy
Polka dot: Sweet and cute
Fire: I loved this design done by a beautician in a business event I attended (sorry cant remember her name)
Graphic nails: Easy nail design anyone with a steady hand can do, this was my first attempt.
Hippie nails: This is what happens if a girl has too much time on her hands!
Magnetic: This has been a big nail trend, and I love it. Has saved me a few trips to my nail lady!
Nude: The perfect nude color for darker skin tones, try a more salmon tone for fair skin.
Orange: This is one of my fav summer time colors, lovely and zesty
New years Eve 2011: I always like a bit of sparkle it's the drag queen in me!
Coral: One of the many breaks I took from Acrylic nails
Understated salmon: Well as much as very long acrylics can be.
