Hello lovelies,

Well guess what? I've decided to do 'Maleficent Nails' because I so love Angelina Jolie and her interpretation of Maleficent. She looks absolutely fabulous and I can't wait to see the whole film. So far I've watched numerous trailers and researched posters and I'll show you my inspiration at the end of this post.

I don't think it gets more epic than this kind of nails lol! It took me about 3.5 hours to paint these and I'm quite pleased with them :) I'm not very good at painting faces so hopefully you'll recognise Angelina there :) Here are few more pictures...

I've been taking pictures and compiled a kind of step-by-step tutorial so you can see how these nails progressed. I have used A England Camelot as a base colour, acrylic paint and Barielle topcoat.

Hello lovelies,

I'm sure all of us face this dreadful problem all the time - you painted a pretty nail art on your nails and now you need to do it on your dominant hand! Well, I've decided to share one of the tricks to recreating intricate patterns on your other hand. The trick is to paint the design on decals first as I will demonstrate in the tutorial.

So I will be creating this mix & match floral pattern on both of my hands with the help of decals...
