Sometimes it's nice to go back to patterns. They're simple but cute!

Thursday, 3 July 2014


In the holidays I just get so overwhelmed with free time that I either: productively use the time I've been afforded, or just hurtle further into procrastination.

These instances take a kind of middle position: I wanted to paint my nails super nice (productive) but settled for one or two feature nails (procrastination)

The left hand side was the beginnings of a Hawaiian theme and the right hand side is based off my pajamas (as can be seen in the background)

I would have LOVED to continue these themes on both hands but honestly they would have taken me days, perhaps even a week!

Kim Possinail

I love painting my nails with cartoons, it's always easier to recognise (i.e. there's more leeway to make mistakes).

Another classic cartoon of my childhood is Kim Possible

So what's the stitch?
Call me beep me if you want to reach me!
Now the theme song will be in my head for eternity.

nailventure time: revisited

Did my last exam for the semester last night! As soon as I came home, I saw the sorry sight of my nails and knew something had to be done. Something big though, not just a plain ol' colour or pattern.

The result:
Adventure Time nails! Now I know I've done one like this before, as well as an LSP one and a B-MO one (IT'S JUST TOO EASY/CUTE, OKAY!?) but I'd like to think this set displays more detail. I mean, the logo is there!

Also for fans of the show who are confused by the pinky next to B-MO, it was meant to be Cinnamon Bun... I couldn't think of who I wanted on my last nail, then after I had painted "Cinnamon Bun" (arguable it looks like him), I realised that I could have done Tree Trunks! She's a cutie. Oh well, maybe another time? ;)

Now that holidays are upon me, I have the freedom to do whatever I please! Buuut  'll probably spend that opportunity just painting my nails lalzzzz.

Better for this blog, I guess!

Ballin' so hard

Had my Law Ball on the Saturday and the dress code was Black Tie (i.e. super fancy). So to match the event, I needed super fancy nails and what better way to do that than with tuxedo nails!
I did a similar type of design for my Formal two years ago, so that should give an indication of the dress code of this ball! It was great fun dressing up with friends and just having a blast together. It was basically like the last hurrah before exams really start to kick in. Greeeeat.

Nailo and Stitch

Here's another Disney related theme! Lilo and Stitch nails:

 I was just kind of on a roll after Emperor's New Groove, and was also being inspired by my older themes. 

Also I apologise for the photo being upside down. I'm posting this from my phone and am so technologically inept that I don't know how to rotate the photo. Oh well! You just have to take what you get.

Emperor's nail groove

Well hasn't it been a while! Just a bit under a year, to be exact. I was just sitting here, in front of my laptop, thinking of new and inventive ways to procrastinate when I stumbled across this bad boy again! It was destiny that I return.

So I haven't checked this blog in a long time (it's connected to an old email address so I don't even get notifications about it anymore 😢) but seeing that people actually take time to look at my blog has given me renewed vigour to start it up again. That, and the fact that finals are now 4 weeks away (eep).

Wow so a lot has changed since last year! Now that I have an iPhone I can blog on the go! Which will be a delightful time buster. Additionally, I have an Instagram account too, on which I post most of my nail art escapades. So fear not! I have a stream of posts lined up if need be! (P.s. Instagram account: coolboy_namira if you're keen)

Okay, enough nostalgic rambling!! I present to you Emperor's New Groove nails:
So on the thumb you've got llama Emperor Kuzco, human Kuzco, Yzma, Kronk and Pacha.

Enjoy! And glad to be back.
(And thank you for viewing my blog. Even if you accidentally clicked on it. Maybe it was fate? Have a scroll through to check.)
