Nails of the day / Zip It OK

another fantastic nail related pun for ya'll...

I was in a Zippety-do-da mood hahaha.

What do you think?

Not a very exciting post, I know, but hopefully the nail photos make up for it.

Nails of the day - stripes away!

Super Thanks to Jessie from Nailed It NZ for the inspiration.
Not too boring, but super quick and easy.
Great nails for an easy weekend design. This is a great tutorial from Nailed It NZ.

Doesn't take too much precision, and the more random looking the stripes the better.

What do you think?
I might try and spice it up with some other colour combos some time. 

agirlwithsomeclothes is a slacker! I cannot remember the nail polish I used.

(I can have a hunt if you so desire- let me know in comments)

Nails of the day - check(ers) them out

apologies for the great pun 

I did this funky checker design free-hand. Ok I used a Sally Hansen Nail art pen.
But I'm still pretty proud of the almost neat-ness of them.

I'm quite excited to try these again, and use the nail art pens for more designs 

What do you think?

Base Colour: Sally Hansen Get Juiced
Black and White: Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens in Black and White
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Mega Shine (I think) its the shiny silver bottle with the blue lid.

Nails of the day / green stripes???

These were a little design I thought I would try after seeing the Nailasaurus's Waterfall Nail Art Tutorial.

Here is my attempt with a green hue. 

I also added some glequins because it just didn't look quite right all on it's own.

What do you think?
think you might give it a go?

Green: Revlon Wind Fall
Blue Stripes: China Glaze Fade into Hue
eeeep I can't remember what I used for the darker colour!
