#clairestelle8may challenge – Kaleidoscope

Hello my lovelies! I’m so late blogging these nails, the challenge ended on saturday and it’s now tuesday! I did get them up on Instagram on time though. My tablet, which I usually use for photo editing and blogging has died, so I’ve had to pull out my crusty old laptop, wade through several Windows updates, try to find passwords etc etc.. I’m up and running again but I really miss my tablet! Continue reading “#clairestelle8may challenge – Kaleidoscope”

One I follow is @_nailsbyjacky, and she recently posted a pretty leopard print mani that I thought I might be able to recreate. I’ve wanted to do a leopard print for ages, so now is an ideal opportunity! Continue reading “#clairestelle8may challenge – Inspired by another artist”
