My Manicure: Freehand Filigree

Tonight my painting harks back to filigree,
The metal handiwork oft found in jewellery,
The swirls and strokes painted in many a curve,
In white and black are the colours I serve,
Coral graces my thumb to accent the look,
Some roses present in every finger's nook,

#saimassalon featuring OPI "My Boyfriend Scales Walls", Barry M "Coral", Zoya "Arizona" and black acrylic paint.

My Manicure: Zig-a-zig-ah!

If you want zig-zag fingers, you have got to see,
Someone by the name of Linda, THE nail vinyls lady,
If you want zig-zag fingers, she will show you the way,
Just stick them on and paint atop before ripping away!
I want zig-zag fingers, so I painted mine with gold,
Atop mini chevrons, some sugar mat and lo, behold:

My zig-a-zig-ah!

Featuring nail vinyls from @teismom on instagram, 
Kiko "456" sugar mat nail lacquer and Essie "Good As Gold"

My Manicure: Boxing Day

It's the boxing day holiday here in the UK,
And on my sister I painted on our lazy day,
Some honey ryder gold and emotions so black,
Topped off with some stamping in gold damask,
She's not one to venture into the realm of nail art,
I didn't bother to ask, in case she ran with a start,
I chose some hues appearing pleasing to her eyes,
When she donned her specs, much to her surprise,
She loved what she saw, that gold and black damask,
And I'm even more pleased with my quick mani task!

My Manicure: Xmas Day

My Manicure: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But painting nails is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Oh, it doesn't show signs of stopping,
But I've got a red that's popping,
It's given my nails an inner glow,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

The snowflakes are slowly falling,
On my fingers and thumb they come calling,
But as long as I'm painting you know,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Topped off with a candy cane,
You'll see what I've been working on,
Now that I'm done painting,
My hands do a snowstorm don!

My Manicure: Boxing Day

Christmas comes but once a year,
If you're British you have good cheer,
For a second day's holiday we hold dear,
Which Ethereal Lacquer has captured here,
In glistening sparkle in a purple jelly sheer,
Atop my moyou stamping does adhere,
In my manicure, in a double premiere.

My Manicure featuring my debuts of Ethereal Lacquer's "Boxing Day", a UK exclusive for Rainbow Connection UK, and my first use of Moyou stamping plates with Time Traveller 02 "Back to the Seventies"
