N is for Nail Art

One thing I really enjoy and find quite therapeutic - is doing Nail Art with my daughter. Miss B has really nice, long nails to paint, unlike mine, so every now and again we pull out her nail polish collection, choose a design or get creative and have some quality Mother Daughter time. We started this little tradition before Master M arrived and we still do it to this day. 

This is how I store Miss B's Nail Polish (Sistema Craft Organiser)

Here are some examples of the funky designs that I have done with Miss B.

  1. I love looking at nail art. The reason I don't do it for myself is that I hate when nail polish chips. I get my nails done frequently, but I just go with clear polish.

    1. My daughter is the same - once the nail polish starts to chip, she scratches the rest off or gets nail polish remover and cleans her nails ready for the next design!

  2. Nail art has numerous possibilities.
    Your designs are ingenious. --I especially like the Converse Shoes.

    1. Thank you Sundari. I only wish I had nice long nails so that my daughter can pamper me and paint my nails!

  4. How fun is this! I used to do this with my daughter when she was younger, but never this creative! You are an expert. Now that my daughter is 15 she does her nails with her girlfriends, treasure the time you two have, this really helps to create a life long bond with your girl. xo
