Introducing my YouTube channel!

Posted on: May 8th, 2014 by shewhodoesnails  No Comments

If there wasn’t already enough excitement this week with the new blog design, I’ve launched my own shewhodoesnails YouTube channel!

You can find the link to in the bar at the top of this blog, or visit this link here!
Hit the subscribe button so you don’t miss any of my future videos!

And now onto my video….you might recognize this design from about a year ago, so I thought I would recreate it for #ThrowBackThursday!

I created a quick and easy little tutorial for Tiffany inspired nails that you can follow along with from home. If you like it, please share it with your friends and family on Facebook or Twitter so they can enjoy it too!

Well there is always one day that you forget to open a door on your advent calendar, and for me that day was yesterday. Really I was just very busy and didn’t have time to share this nail art design with you, so that means you get a double dose of nail art today!

I know that quite a few of you have been waiting for this nail art tutorial to pop up….it’s Santa!

Advent Tutorial: Carol Singers

So sorry this is running a little bit late today guys! I stupidly didn’t use an oven glove last night when picking up a baking tray that had just come out of the oven, so spent half of this morning at the doctors’, and am now sporting a big bandage. It’s my left hand too, so I’m just glad I have pre-painted the rest of the advent calendar already so you guys won’t miss out!

Today’s nail art tutorial is a carol singer!
