I’ve just gone to download the images from my phone and the Micro SD card has died. Valuable lesson learned… back up daily! I’ve now lost all my images from September. So… still catching up here are May’s nails. Soon be up to date!
Acrylic nails with dusky pink gel and glitter with little hearts
I’m now only 4 months behind! Here are a few from March.
These nails were created after Cath’s husband sent a pic of what they’d like on her nails. Cath has The Gel Bottle Builder in a Bottle on her natural nails. These nails were created with Black Gel polish, Gold pigment, gold glitter and hand painted clock faces.
These nails are gel polish over natural nails. Using Ink London’s Blood Diamond for the main manicure, I added chunky and fine glitter in Champagne gold o the ring and index fingers and added 3d detail to the red nails with gold 3d gel.

It’s New Year 2017. New Year, New Nails. It’s actually July but I’ve just got round to posting. I’m gradually catching up!

November Nail Designs. Shades are getting darker ready for the cold dark nights but the bling is starting to appear more and more.
Autumn Nail Designs
Some of my September finger nail and toenail designs. Still catching up! What else to do on a rainy Dorset Sunday afternoon?
Valentine’s Day is here again! Lots of hearts and flowers on the nails. Have you any plans for tomorrow?
I’ve taken a day off as I have the house to myself so it’s going to be a play day, this time I need to get ahead so probably do some Easter themed nails, Spring nails… summer… I can’t wait!
I took part in an online course yesterday via Periscope with Dega Mosane in which she showed various One Stroke, Zhostovo and Foil techniques. That’s on the agenda tomorrow too. I have a set of lashes to do later this afternoon then no more clients til Wednesday so lots of time to get messy and get all my pretties out! Pics to follow.
I’m also working on my new site www.lcbta.co.uk which was launched last week. You will find nail and beauty training courses here which I am adding to all of the time. I’m off to Plymouth on Friday for advanced training in various techniques and skills, more details to come! I also have a new Facebook page linked to that site. Come along and have a look.
Marshall from Paw Patrol Nails. Anyone who knows me knows I do not do Cute! I had to do minions last year and hated every minute of it. I’ve painted penguins, snowmen, reindeer all under duress.
This time I was sent a picture and asked to create a picture on a lady’s nails for her son’s birthday party. After a quick Google I discovered it was Marshall from Paw Patrol. There’s so much merchandise for this and I had never heard of it!
I figured I really needed to practice on swatches first, glass of wine in hand, Netflix playing Sons Of Anarchy… I was all set! NOT as easy as I first thought! The eyes. So hard to get them not looking cross-eyed. The position was hard too as I kept making it too far over so his fireman’s hat was hanging off the nail. Eventually I created these 2.
I chose a black and a white gel base for contrast. Painted using acrylic paints and a size 0 brush with details painted using Team Gorgeous Dita brush.
Marshall Design on the Nails
Natalie came in Friday for the actual nails. She decided to have the other nails in the colours of the other Paw Patrol Characters with little paw prints on them. The end result was very bright and met with her son’s approval. Can’t wait to see the party pictures!
Bespoke nail art is always a pleasure, I love a challenge and trying new ideas. I wonder what’s next? I flat out refuse to do minions though!
