"Bee Happy!" (with Pictorial)

Hello friends! I have this extremely cute and punny design to share with you all today. In grade two, I remember receiving a tiny notebook that said "BEE HAPPY" on it and the saying has stuck with me ever since. I no longer remember what the notebook looked like, but the phrase popped back into my mind the other day and I was inspired by it. 
This design has been bringing me smiles whenever I see it throughout the day. Read on to see step by step instructions (with pictures) on how to create these adorable nails!

Stripes and Simple Florals

Hello friends! I have a fun and bold nail design for this week. Pairing simple vertical stripes with some summery florals makes these nails stand out! This eye-catching design may look intricate, but is actually very easy to do.
This design is also extremely versatile, and I can see it working well with a variety of Different colour combinations.  A pastel pink in lace of the blue would give the nails a much more chic and make it look much softer; whilst a bold red would make this design look very fierce. Another thing I really love about this design is the mix & match look that it has. Mix & match designs have always been a favourite of mine because of how fun and eye-catching they are. Each nail has its own unique look, yet they all fit together very well; plus, every nail is an accent nail.

Quick NOTW Update- Starter Pokemon

Hello friends! I am back with another quick NOTW! Between going away and visiting my boyfriend, and getting sick, I finally found some time to give my nails some much needed TLC. I had so much fun doing the Bayleef nails two weeks ago, that I decided to continue with the pokemon theme. Plus, I've also been loving Pokemon Go so far so I thought that adding the available starter pokemon  from the game would make for a fun design.
When the game first came out, I could not wait to get my hands on it. I've had so much fun playing it, but due because of work (among other things), I have not gotten to play much. Anyway, soon after it's release, some players found a way to get a pikachu as your starter pokemon (although I'm not quite sure if this still works)! Thus, when I was coming up with the design for this week's nail art I wanted to include pikachu, despite him not being one of the official starters in the original game. These nails are so fun, colourful and they bring me so much delight whenever I see my hands. I definitely look forwards to doing similar designs, and my co-workers have suggested that I continue the theme and do other sets of starters. Another idea that I've had (also inspired by the game) was to draw eevee and its three eeveelutions. What design do you think I should do next?
