A friend of mine has recently sparked up an interest in nail art. This is brilliant for me, too, as it means a whole other set of polishes and nail trinkety bits that I can borrow 😉 She also gave the incredible birthday present of an ENORMOUS Konad set. And when I say ENORMOUS, I truly mean ENORMOUS.
Anyway, enough bragging! Today I want to showcase some of the kickass freehand nail art my friend Lisa has been busying herself with lately.
I love the way Lisa rocks funky nail art on short, well-kept nails – proving you don’t need inch-long talons to pull off daring nail art. In fact, I think the wilder the nail art, the better it looks on shorter nails. Playing ukulele so frequently means I need to keep my nails neat and trimmed – but it’s no excuse to not jazz up my nails. I tried out Konad for the first time yesterday. Well, the first PROPER time… excluding all the times I tried different designs on every nail and made a terrible mess. I used Konad plate M60 with Konad special black polish, over a base of NYC Polyester Pink Creme.
Now, after all those nails – a breather! Here’s a musician I’ve been listening to a lot recently, Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer. He’s a deliberately ‘posh’ hip-hop banjolele player. Instead of singing about beer goggles he has his own version – the Sherry Monocle. Enjoy!
Sigh… I love a musician with a sense of humour!
Now, I want to leave with a link to Lisa’s Facebook page. Not her personal one, silly, though she is very friendly and would probably accept if you asked 😛 Lisa runs her own graphic design business and you can check out her work here – her designs are infused with as much flair and funkiness as her nail art. Go check it out!
