Nails: Top Five Nail Art Posts

Here are my top five nail art blog posts for 2018;

Forth of July Nails - I was surprised that is was so popular considering I'm from the UK and don't celebrate 4th of July.

Bloody Hand Nails - I liked these nails, the hand prints showed up so well against the white background.

Grey Marble Nails - Another one I liked, although I think this would had made a great background for nail art. Maybe I did use this for a base and it didn't make the top five?

Winter Fox Nails - These were a surprise, I had forgotten I'd done them! The French tip snow gradient looks nice and the fox is cute too. Defiantly think I need to wear the snow gradient again.

Scale Nails - I didn't like how the base turned out on these, they were a foil which was a bit patchy however with the stamping on top I think they look nice.

Nail Polish Battle 2018: Winner!

So the top three were A England's Briarwood, Danglefoot Polish Oh Plesiosaur and A England Moth A Fairy.

A England - Moth A Fairy was the first polish to be eliminated, because it was the lightest of the three and I do prefer darker polishes.

The next two were very difficult to chose between. I do love both of the polishes, but I chose Danglefoot Oh Plesiosaur for second place because of what I have been wearing the most recently.

Which of course means A England - Briarwood is the winner of my nail polish battle 2018. I chose this one because it really has been one I have been wearing a lot of recently. I even wore it as is which is rare for me. It's the perfect autumnal holographic polish.
