A nice base colour, a few dots and stripes here and there, maybe some summer strawberries or even cute ladybirds, hell, I could even do Christmas trees for the festive season! Er.....actually, no. I'm rubbish. Well, not completely rubbish. I can do my left hand. A bit. Okay, I'm rubbish.
I was really excited then, to find these Elegant Touch nail art stickers in Superdrug.
They're not bad. A few creases here and there, I'm not sure they'd stand up to close scrutiny, but they are easy enough to apply, just stick 'em on! The overhang is filed away with a nail file. I put a clear top coat on and they lasted about 4 days before looking shabby. To remove just peel them off gently and wipe away excess glue with nail polish remover.
However, it's that "hand-painted" look I really like and while mooching about looking for new blogs to read, I came across Charlene of Dainty Dresses.
This is the next best thing to being able to paint your own unique nail art, because Charlene hand paints full cover false nails and sells them from her little shop Dainty Nails. She even supplies the glue!
