The Nail Files: Purple Paisley

 
I will admit that I am by no means a nail expert, hell I think it's a triumph if I get the nail varnish actually on my nail and not all over my hands, which truth be told, frequently happens.  I'm sure people look at my attempt at nail painting and wonder if I am of a nervous disposition, and the answer is no, I'm just really shit at painting my nails.

Fortunately I very rarely paint my nails, but on the rare occasion I do I like to have a go at something a bit different, and this time I have gone for a paisley print inspired nail.

I figured having gone to all the effort of not getting nail varnish all over me, I would give you a little tutorial, humour me ok, lets all pretend we think my crappy little attempt was worth the time and effort.  Anywho, here we go:









Ta ra,

  1. Well done - there's no way that I could ever have created something as delicate and intricate as that - for that I would need to use a sticker :o). Beautiful look, especially to use as an accent nail :o). Xx

  6. So pretty! There is no way I would come out with anything as amazing as your design though, I don't think I have a steady enough hand!

  9. I love that barry m colour, it's exactly what I've been looking for! Will have to have a look. I always try to do nail art with a pen and one hand always comes out looking better than the other!

  19. I don't think you're bad at all at doing your nails! I know what you mean though, I'm exactly the same - any attempt to be neat just results in paint all over my fingers!

    This is a gorgeous colour though, I love the Barry M nail polishes, and you did such a great job with the nail art. Fab tutorial!
