NOTD: Candycane manicure.

Hello lovelies,

Another hump day done and dusted! It's been a bit busy in my world, so I'm unfortunately skipping the makeup tag this week. I do have a couple of other exciting posts coming up, but in the meantime, I thought I'd share this filler quick and easy nail art manicure I did a few weeks ago (yes, I'm very behind in my blogging schedule, eep).

This was achieved using *Maybelline Color Show in Coral Crush as my base polish. Using a dotting tool, I added a bunch of white dots (I used Sally Hansen White On) in a half moon shape. I then went back and added more dots (using Rimmel London Cranberry Zest this time) in the spaces between the white dots, and voila, it's finished! For a bit of fun, I added a line of dots in a mirror image on my ring finger for an accent nail.

Apologies for the shoddy photos, I literally only wore it for a day and was trying my best to get photos while out and about (the end of daylight savings is making this beauty blogger's life a lot harder)!

I hope you enjoyed that, lovelies!

Now, if you excuse me, I'm off to try and get to bed early, I think I need to catch up on some much-needed beauty sleep!

Much love,

P.S. - Mother's Day is only four days away! If you haven't sorted out your gift yet, why not check out my gift guide for every budget? I've even got some ideas in there that won't cost you a cent. ♥

  1. So beautiful hun. I love the white, pink and red together. Really lovely and sweet. Nice and easy too :)

  2. Such a cute design! Love it! So jealous of your super long nails, I just can't get mine to grow like that. What is your secret?

    1. Aw, thank you, but they actually aren't that long, only a couple of mm past my fingertips! I think it's because I have long nail beds that my nails look much longer than they are.

  3. Hate daylight savings! Too hard to get the nice photos when it gets dark too soon! This nail art looks easy enough to do. Just dots. But, dare I say I would still mess this up! :p

    1. I feel your pain, sigh.

      It certainly is, give it a go. :)

  4. This is such a fun look, Nalini. I just LOVE that base colour, looks perfect on you, hun xx

  5. That looks easy and very manageable.
