#52weeknailchallenge - week 33: Houndstooth

Hi everyone,

this week's prompt is Houndstooth, or (as we call it) Pied-de-Poule. I actually knew what it was because my mother used to have a suit, consisting of a jacket and a pencil skirt, in this pattern. The twist was that her jacket had a fuchsia pink lining, so this manicure is based on my memory of what she looked like: the black-n-white pattern, the pink lining and the silver watch she wore (and still wears btw ;)

Live your best life

Yesterday was a sad day for my family and me as we had to say a final farewell to my cousin.
His motto was: live your best life.
This one's for him.

#52weeknailchallenge - week 32: Black + White (aka back to shorties)

Hi everyone!

As you can see, I've spend an hour or so filing down my nails... again... :(
After breaking the nail on my left middle finger, I decided to take pictures of my Cinderella hand for a while, only to crash into a door when it was opened unexpectedly so that took another two nails from my right hand. I managed to avoid getting hit in the face though! So it's back to shorties (and pampering them as much as I can to encourage them to grow faster). I was lucky though, no breaks went into the pink part so it doesn't hurt.

Anyway, the 32nd prompt calls for Black and White and for me that means a minimal design, which in turn means the emphasis is on the paint and stamp job... I hope I did a decent job:
