NOTD: My First Successful Nail Art

Hey Everyone!

Remember back in the early days I used to post attempted nail art with big splodges and messy edges (eg here- cringe!)? Well I think I can finally say that I have successfully done nail art and it hasn't been a disaster! YAY- applause needed, thanks :)

I've been wanting to try out different styles for ages, with the constant inspiration from blogs and pinterest, but my nails are really short and my hand isn't the steadiest, so I decided nail art wasn't for me. However, inspired by Islay's amazing nail art (who makes everything look so simple!) I thought hey why not give it a go, and I was so pleased with how it turned out!
So you might think 'those aren't even that good' but for me its a major achievement! I think if I get the white stripes a bit thinner and grow my nails so I have more space to work with I might actually master this.
These are the polishes I used in the order I used them, from left to right, and for the lighter green I mixed the green and yellow together. Why is there a random pencil hanging around you may ask? Well this was actually the tool I used for the flowers and it actually made things way easier. I used the writing end and just cleaned it after each colour.

And the best news? The polish lasted a whole 4 days before I peeled it off- a personal record I think.

Have you tried any nail art recently?
