pinailpples and the like

Fruit themed! I'M CUHRAZY

From the thumb we have grapes, an orange, a watermelon, a strawberry and a pineapple! I really liked how the strawberry looked so I decided to wear it on all my nails as a casual look. I knew it would all be mutilated at work anyways :'(
Supez cute and supez simple. A whole lotta fun!

When I was in exams, I got a couple of nail art requests that I was dying to try out. I've done the giraffe nails and plants vs.zombies nails, but I had one last request to do. They were fiesta/tribal nails. The stimulus:
And the outcome:
These were so totally fun to do and have got me excited to do more patterning! So look forward to that.
It also was a perfect excuse to buy more nailpolish heheheh.

totally beachin' nails

I'M SORRY I'VE BEEN NEGLECTING YOU! (nailglecting? no. that was bad. i'm sorry) 
Now that it's holidays, I've just been busy!! But I have been painting my nails. I've just been forgetting to post it on here! So the question is... should I give you all my posts now or space them out?


I reckon anyway. 
I don't know what I'm doing. This post is going to look so weird. 

Just know that these posts are not in order. I did these nails most recently but they are cooler so I'm posting them now!

I called my girlfriends (Robyn, anyone? no? cool) and I had a nail painting session at my house. With my 50-odd amount of nail polish bottles, we sat down and painted socially. It was loads of fun!

Just the day before, we hit the beach to catch up with our friends who stayed at Schoolies for the entire duration. To commemorate the time spent at the beach, I painted beach themed nails!

From the thumb we have a beach scene, a beach umbrella, sunnies, a beach ball and a haphazard sandcastle. The past two days have been a blast! The night before we head to the beach I went to see Coldplay!! And The Temper Trap :') the evidence:

It was an absolutely amazing concert. We were so close!!

But with excitement and fun also comes tragedy. Someone I had met quite a few times - an acquaintance if you must label - passed away on the second last night of schoolies. Out of the blue and completely devastating.
Rest in peace, Izzy.

nailventure time

As an obvious side effect of my holidays, I've been recently getting into more TV shows. Just so I have something to do. A couple of days ago I decided to check out the show "Adventure Time" that was playing on Cartoon Network. And LOVED IT. To show my love, I - of course - immortalised it on my nails:

They're so cute! So from the thumb we've got Finn the Human, Jake the Dog (I feel like they should be said - sang - the other way around haha), Princess Bubblegum, Lumpy Sapce Princess (oh my glob, she's so great) and Lady Raincorn. There were so many characters available to do so I'm thinking I might do another round of nails!! I'd really loved to get Tree Trunks in there.

plants vs zombnails

HEEEELLLLOOOOO! I just finished my last ever high school exam on Tuesday so I am freeeee! This is pretty much the biggest holiday period I will ever experience :D so of course, one of the first things I do is paint my nails! I was requested to do Plants vs Zombies (it's a game, I think?)  themed nails. I was given a picture and pretty much followed that as much as possible. But when I couldn't see the picture on the nail, I took it upon myself to research some of the characters involved. The end result:

I usually tell you what is on each nail but I honestly had no clue what I was painting! I have to say, out of all the nail art I have done, this was definitely the hardest. It was very detailed! I also had no prior knowlege of what I was painting so I just hoped it looked somewhat authentic! Still was a fun time though. As always!
