Springtime Again!

Posted on: May 28th, 2014 by shewhodoesnails  1 Comment

As the weather has been so wonderful and spring-like again, I just had to do something cute and floral, I mean, who doesn’t love a floral mani?

All you need for this mani is a polish for the background colour, two polishes in different shades of the same colour, a green polish for the leaves, and a tiny paintbrush for the detail work!

Springtime Again!

Introducing my YouTube channel!

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!

Oh my goodness. I cannot believe that it has been four whole months since I last painted my nails for you all. That really is disgraceful!

First off, a big apology for vanishing off the face of the earth after Christmas. I very naughtily started biting my nails again, then managed to slice off a bit of the end of my finger, so have been waiting for the time to be right to come back to you all.

So of course, I had to come back on a good one. I give you…… Tinkerbell!!

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!
