Queen of Hearts

So whilst sitting in our caravan bored, I decided to have a little go at painting my nails.  I really needed something to hide my cracking nails (and I don't mean in the good way), as for some reason they just keep splitting.  If you have any tips on how to stop this, please please please let me know!!

Yup, so anyway, I decided why not see if I could do a teeny tiny little pattern on my nails, and here it is:

Yeah yeah, so it's nothing special, but I was impressed (I'm easily impressed), and it gives my otherwise plain nails just something a little bit different.
Basically, its a base coat of Barry M's Blue Moon, and then just 5 different nail polishes I had lying around (mainly Barry M) for the hearts.  I don't have any fancy nail pens (yet...) so I made good use of what was lying around, and in this case it was a bent out paper clip.  Oh thats right, office stationary really can be exciting... yup, just take your time and dip the paper clip end into the nail varnish and build up the shape with a series of small dots.

And there ladies and gentlemen is my very technical description of my nail art.

Stay sexy,
