I’ve seen a few publications writing about ‘Glitter Tears Nail Art’ as if it were a new trend making the rounds. I just wanted to go on record to set things straight – nail artists were doing it long before Glitter Tears were a thing. No shade… just giving credit where it’s due!
As the awkward, yet reassuring, transition into a new year and back to normality continues, I’ve been thinking long and hard about my blog, content and where I want my life online to go from here. And in 2017 I really want to up my blogging game. The good news is, I think I know how to do it. So I made a list of things that I hope will make me a better blogger in 2017.
It’s nearly time to wave goodbye to 2016 and I know a lot of us will be happy to see it go. On the whole, it really does seem like 2016 was a pretty terrible year but perhaps that’s because I live in the same pop culture as everyone else on Twitter and I just got sucked into it all. Whatever your thoughts on the last 12 months, I hope everyone is rounding off the year with fun festivities and killer nails!
What’s Christmas without a fresh manicure?! Generally speaking, Gold has gone way out of style this year in favour of other metallic shades so I wanted to offer up a few alternative ideas for Christmas nail colours. Nothing too extreme – we’re just gonna keep it classy and mix in some glitter. And if you’re the nail art type, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram where I post all of my Christmas nail art!
We’ve all been there. You pull out one of your old favourite nail polishes only to find it’s gone thick, lumpy and completely unusable. Taking proper care of your nail polish collection can delay the process, but sometimes, no matter how much you coddle and love it, it will still end up gloopy. And for that, there’s one holy grail product that will bring your polishes back from the brink of doom.
If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen a very coy sneak peek of these nails yesterday and since it’s my absolute favourite mani for a while I had to honour them with a blog post. I also wanted somewhere to put the video tutorial so you guys could see how I got the gradient effect in the stamp. So, hey if you’re back here from Instagram!
