Nail Art

  One thing I've started getting right into is nail art. Thanks to Tumblr, I've ended up with a slight obsession! So many creative ways to express yourself, all with a bit of paint and lacquer on the hard bits on the end of your fingers! I'd like to share some of my favourite pictures, some I've tried, from images I've sourced on the internet. If I can find any sources I'll of course add them (as I'm a bit of a source-nazi) but apologies if there are none! And of course a few of my favourite nail tutorials on our old friend YouTube.
