Firework Nails

Hi everyone!

Today I have a firework design on my nails, very appropriate around New Year's Eve :)
(unfortunately, also not very original, but since it's my first time doing firework nails I'm considering them original for me anyways :p )

I'm really happy about this floral design I did :)
I got a fancy black dress with yellow flowers at the top, and I wanted to match my nails to it :)

Colourful Leopard Print

Hello everyone!

Yes, I have another leopard print design for you today - sometimes I just get sort of addicted to a pattern and I want to make it in all different colours and variations, so that's what's happening here :)

I did a colourful leopard print for this one, but did something extra as well: on my ringfinger I used rhinestones to create the leopard effect. I used blue, green, pink and yellow rhinestones and then made lines around them with black nail polish. Shiny!

For those of you interested in the colours and how I made the design:

The Group Critique - Beginning Blogger's Bootcamp

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know I'm taking part in The Group Critique of Will Paint Nails For Food's Beginning Blogger's Bootcamp (wow, that's probably a really confusing sentence but I don't really know how to simplify it).

Meghan of Will Pains Nails For Food is making a series of posts called Beginning Blogger's Bootcamp, where she gives a lot of tips about how to blog and what you should pay attention to.
Right now there's a group feedback session, so everyone can give constructive criticism on your blog 
(Here's Meghan's blogpost about it).

It's really helpful to know what things are good about your blog, and what things you could change. I myself have certain preferences in lay-out, style of writing and so on, but maybe other people are really bothered by some things so it's very handy to know that :)

If you have some feedback about my blog, don't hesitate to leave a (constructive) comment! I've already gotten some feedback and they said some things I've never had given much thought to, so it's great to get some new perspectives this way.

Here's some things you can give feedback on:
  • Navigation: Is it easy to find things? Can you find out where to follow, leave a comment, learn more about the blogger, find past posts?
  • Photos: Are they clear and in focus? Do you have any suggestions for how to improve them?
  • Writing: Is the blogger's writing easy to follow? Do they write their posts in one long paragraph or do they break it into easy to read chunks of text?
  • Layout/Design: Does the design go well with the content? How is the layout, are the components of the blog organized in a logical manner?

It's of course very handy if you have a comment about improving my blog, but it's also helpful to know if you think something about my blog of blogposts is very good which I shouldn't change, so you can definitely also leave a comment about that :)

Thanks to everyone who wants to give feedback, and I'll definitely check your blog out too if you're participating in the feedback session as well!
