Snow White

All painted with acrylic paint except the bow.

Pink Roses

Pink roses on the accent nail. I used the same W7 pail pink polish as the as the last post. I did these for a friend. For the roses I used pinks and green polishes and a small dotting tool. Topped of with Seche Vite.
I love the white background on the accent nail - I will do these again on all of my nails when they eventually grow :)

Finally had a moment to attend to my nails - filed, buffed, pushed back cuticles and cut them. Oiled cuticles with almond oil - ready to paint.

Here I have used W7 in a pale pink - 3 coats - not the best quality polish! Topped them of with Seche Vite which I love! Dries nice and fast, just what you need when you've got kids running round you :)
Ring finger is stamped with a small heart pattern Konad m59 topped of with Out The Door.

Desperate for my nails to grow.... Please grow

Hi there.. well I'm going to start as I mean to go on.. a sorry state of affairs.. my nails :(

I'm quite embarrassed to put this picture up, but... It might inspire someone to think their nails and hands are worth saving, and that they can look gorgeous again with a bit of love, time and attention.

I've had the craziest past two weeks, with flu, sickness, painting my kitchen, running around after my two year old son and looking after my 5 month old son, my nails have just had enough! Sorry nails. (That's not dirt but brown wood paint in my nails that won't come of! Ggrrrr)

My first manicure will be a simple, short neutral one. No fancy pants mani for me for a bit :(
