Russian doll nails

Hi guys!

I did these yesterday, they took maybe about an hour to do with all the drying inbetween. Quite often I'll put on a DVD whilst I'm doing them, yesterdays film was Beauty and the Beast :)

I'd recently bought a Russian pin doll, as I keep losing my pins and needles in my bed and getting body parts impaled by them. So I was inspired to try and recreate my own Russian doll onto my nails.

Most of the colours are by Barry M, with a few Andrea Fulerton nail art bottles.

Here we go: (The flash has destroyed it a little.)

They half remind me from a distance of those weird alien Haribo that tasted like cherries. Odd, I know but I felt the need to mention it!

Hope you're all well and enjoyed your bank holiday weekend.

A mass of nail designs.

My dear bloggers, I apologise.

Everything got really hectic, I've been very ill and I found it hard to get to the computer for a long time. As my apologies, I give you all the nail designs I've been doing recently. Some are from tutorials from "cutepolish."

How are you all doing?

For the first time yesterday I got to paint other peoples nails, it was something totally new to me. Especially when we were giggling so much my hands became shakey. It was a day for firsts yesterday, was lovely meeting two of my friends I've never seen before.

So, here we go!

I hope you liked them! Please do let me know your opinions :)

Lots of love,
