Zoo inspired Giraffe

Last week I took a trip to London Zoo for Zoo Lates and it was amazing!

So, I felt it was necessary to jazz up my nails with an animal inspired design.

The main colours I used for this one are Topshop celestial blue for the base, Bee’s Knees yellow for the head and neck, Barry M mushroom brown for the spots, pastel pink textured nail polish for the nose and nail art pens in black and white for additional detail.

This is nice and easy to do as the main detail comes in when you do the head on the thumb nail.

It’s good to double check that you have done the head the right way round so that it lines up with the neck. I got this wrong on my other hand…not the best when you have to start over the most detailed part! But, that’s trial and error I guess.

Suuuuperman!

In order to celebrate the release of ‘Man of Steel’, I felt it was necessary to get creative with my nails (as per usual).

I found a design similar to this on Pinterest and thought it was worth giving it a go!

Superman by Kelly

The main colours used for this one are Barry M cobalt Blue, Mushroom, Red wine, Topshop Bee’s Knees and a black nail art pen.

My favourite part of this design is the quiff! It’s a fairly easy one to do as it is mainly stripes. The only tricky part I found was creating the Superman logo as I don’t have a red nail art pen (which definitely would have come in handy!).

I haven’t posted on here in over a month! It’s shocking! But, the reason for this is because I have started an incredible placement (and I have yet to get any internet sorted in my new place).

Anyway, here is a little design I did to celebrate the sun making a very belated appearance at the end of June! Nothing beats having pastel yellow nails when it’s a lovely summers day.

The main colour used for this one is Topshop Bee’s Knees pastel yellow and nail art pens in black and white.

It was quite tricky doing the bee as you definitely need a steady hand to be able to make the stripes. A toothpick can come in handy if you don’t have a nail art pen to hand.
