I am absolutely losing my mind being stuck at home recovering from surgery. And so, to celebrate being able to sit up without wanting to cry, I decided to do some nail art. I did some watermelon nail art HERE so I stuck with the fruit theme for these cute pop art nail art bananas.

I was lucky enough to go to the essie pop-up nail bar in Debenhams on Oxford Street last week for a manicure (you can see what I had done HERE). On my way out I was handed a bag that contained the full essie Summer 2015 collection. Cue lots of squealing!

I did this manicure freehand with my trusty teeny tiny paintbrush and a lot of different colours, I can give you specifics if you want to know a shade name. Just leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.
