Fresh goals

Remember to take time out to set goals for yourself. Make sure they are achievable and set a time frame! It’s so important to have something to work towards and of course to see how far you’ve come.

Nail Art – make a statement!

Confetti Nail Art

Now that summer is around the corner, we’re seeing bright, uplifting colours and fun summer prints popping up in outfits and store windows. But why limit this to only your wardrobe? Lately nail art has become quite a trend and once you start looking, you’ll find there are hundreds of creative ways to decorate your nails.

Many of the images I’m sharing today are from an amazing French blog called pshiiit. Camille is a nail polish addict and features amazing inspiration and the cleverest tutorials.

Whether you prefer a more subtle look or something that demands attention, why not give it a try and take your nails up a notch?!
