I had such an overwhelming response to my recent gradients and a lot of questions asking how I do them, so I decided to do a tutorial.
We’ve all seen the beautiful Ciaté Caviar manicure sets advertised. They are set to be the newest trend in nail art…if you can get your hands on a set. I am impatient and didn’t want to wait a month for them to come back in stock!
So, I went to a craft shop, bought these beads and did it myself. Quite fiddly but sooooo pretty. Also, the Ciaté bottles cost £18…my pot cost 40p! So I’m happy!
The lovely ladies over at Wahanda have mentioned me in an article about their favourite nail blogs! Eeeee! Thank you!

Hi, thank you for your question!
Most of the time I use a teeny tiny paintbrush and nail varnish to do my detailing as it’s how I learnt and am most comfortable.
However! For the aztec nails you are talking about, I did use the WAH nails x Models Own nail art pens. I highly recommend them as they are easy to use, go on opaque (rare for pens) and are a lot less mess than paintbrushes!
Hope that helps,
I realised today that I have been doing nail art and my little nail blog for 6 months!
I have enjoyed it so much and I really appreciate everyone who reads my blog, asks questions, inspires me, reblogs, retweets and has ordered nails from me. You are all lovely.
Here’s to the next 6 months!

I highly recommended you have a nosey around her site. She’s intelligent, interesting and very funny. Go! Go now! I’m watching!
