After my Beauty and the Beast nails were mutilated by everyday life, I decided I wanted something quick to paint, easy to wear but still funky-looking. The days you find me wearing one colour of nail polish on all my finger nails is a day you'll know I was far too busy to care! I ended up choosing:
Pineapple nails! The photo may be upside down but I think the desired effect is still there! So now from afar my nails look simple but upon closer inspection the detail (which is not too overboard) is evident. I wanted it to look effortless and I personally am pleased with the results. Only took me minutes to complete too, as an added bonus!

Nail as old as time

Hey guys! I am so sorry I have not been posting ever! I have been painting my nails heaps but since I recently got Instagram, I've been mainly posting there. I also found that to post here I would have to go out of my way and get out my laptop and ugh! But now with my iPod touch I have discovered the blogger app and life will be much easier.

Currently I am mooching of my uni's wifi to post this! I am in a lecture break and thought.. I got time to kill! Who needs friends. (I do. Please.)

So without anymore rambling, beauty and the beast nails:
Okay my battery is almost dying but I just wanted to say I was astonished to come on here months later to find people still viewing my blog! You guys inspired
 me to  start up again!

K bye

(nail)paint with all the colours of the wind

Well, first off. WOW. I'm (really)x10000 sorry I have not been posting here. But then again, who am I apologising to? People find themselves here on this blog mostly by chance - most of which are accidents - but I don't think there's any regulars. Anywho, if you are a regular, than I apologise. 
I am apolgising because of the (obvious) lack of posting. And it's not like I don't have the time to do it - I literally just forget/don't want to do it.
This isn't to say this blog is dying- DEFINITELY NOT! How dare you suggest such a ghastly thing!?! I promise promise promise that in my semester break, I will post more (I HOPE).

Ahh well, you aren't here to scroll through my ramblings, I present to you Pocahontas nails:
It's meant to replicate one of the movie posters of the film.. And I know the eyes are a bit strange, but I did my best. Well, the inspiration for this nail art theme came from - first off - a classic love for Disney that all normal people possess. But also, I had such an urge to watch it that once I had finished viewing I HAD to paint something related to it! So so so, I very much hope you are enjoying this post. Pls.

Just because I have not been posting on this blog, does not mean I have stopped nail painting, hooo no - far from it! I post them all on my instagram account: namirarahman so feel free to check dem out or even give me a sneaky little follow. I assure you it's a riveting account.

ed sheernail

I feel like I'm always apologising in my blog posts. This one is no different:

With all this new Uni stuff I've been pretty occupied! Here I present my Ed Sheeran themed nails!

The reason for this theme is because I went to his concert last Saturday! We waited 6 hours in the constant rain but boy was it worth it! He's an absolute spectacle. I would have taken pictures but it was still raining... so phone was double wrapped in plastic bags for safety!

And the reason the picture is in a funky frame with a funky filter is because - you guessed it - I got an Instagram account! I tend to post more nail art pictures there recently because it is easier!! My username is namirarahman if you're interested in following :) But that being said, I will still use this blog!!

Just bear with meeeeee

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while! I've just been forgetful/busy/too lazy to post when I 'm on the computer. Also Uni is starting up real soon so I won't know how often I'll be able to paint and post on here because it's my first year - it'll take time to figure out my daily routines. But without further ado, here are some funky nails:

The theme is TV shows, past and present! From the thumb you have Community, Rugrats, 30 Rock, Daria and Saturday Night Live. A heap of fun to do!

the nailper trap

Since I had done a Coldplay and Maroon 5 set of nails, I figured it was time to paint a theme of another favourite band of mine: The Temper Trap. I pondered upon what I could incorporate into it to make it distinguishable as Temper Trap nails. This is what I ended up with!

I tried to replicate the effect of their second album cover which looks like:
It required a myriad of blues and a lot of blending! Although it doesn't look spot on, I'd like to give myself at least SOME credit - it kiiiiinda looks like the cover. Nonetheless, it was very fun to do.

splatter nails

As has already been well established, I love having matching nails with outfits/themes. You know, things that - no matter how crazy or weird - can be wearable because of the relevance they have to what you are wearing. Don't know what I mean? Yeah neither do I.

The other day I went to an 18th that was themed rainbow. Which obviously meant I needed rainbow nails! But painting a rainbow on each nail!? Uck, time consuming. Painting each nail a different colour!? Please, way too simple. A third petty idea? No way. BEHOLD:

You can achieve a similar look by using a straw. Place a blob of nailpolish somewhere and dip that straw in! Then blow with force! At the beginning, I was failing miserably. I was just getting immensely lightheaded from blowing on the straw so hard! But near the end I got the hang of it.
