Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter M for... mermaid!

“I think every little girl's dream is to be a mermaid or to see a mermaid. [When I was younger] I would go to the beach and cover myself in the sand. People from different cultures and centuries have the same idea of what mermaids are ... so that's maybe a cool thing to think about.”
― Emma Roberts

If you haven't figured it out yet (or read the title :P ) today's nail art was inspired by mermaids. One of my favorite cartoons as a child - and now - was (is) The Little Mermaid. I've watched it many times and kinda know a few of the songs by heart so a manicure inspired by it has been on my mind for quite a while.

My first thought for the letter M was "map" which turned into "marshmallow" and materialized as "mermaid" on my nails, in the end. (Yes, I do change my mind pretty often).

Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter L for... ladylike & love

The letter "L" made me think of "love" at the beginning of the challenge, then, after some time, the word "lace" came to my mind - something more original, I thought - but this week I felt really in love (blame it on my boyfriend) and feminine (...) so I decided to do a ladylike manicure, inspired by the idea of love (pink, hearts, roses... bleah, getting too cheesy now :P ).

This is what turned out:

Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter K for... Kite!


Sorry for being late with the post but I had a really busy week and I was too tired (hmm.. and bored shhh!) to write this post so I kept postponing it.

My inspiration for this week was a kite, but I initially tried painting a kaleidoscope image/shape/I don't know what to call it/picture on my nails (it did not turn out very well, but I might try again when I have more free time). ^_^

Aaaanyway, check the pictures out and tell me what you think?

Also, one of the things that kept me busy in the past week was an event held by the handmade community from my hometown. The community is called "Creative Hands" and they celebrated 2 years of existence. The event was really nice, with loads of contests, one of them being called "show your love for Creative Hands in a original way". For that I painted the community's logo on my nails (d'ooh, what else could I have done? :P) as you can see in the pictures below. ^_^

And this is the picture the girls from Creative Hands took at the event:

I'm gonna go check what the other bloggers did for this letter. Join me?

Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter J for... Jigsaw! :D

This week I've been playing around with themes and colors, trying to find something right for the theme. I thought about "Jade" (too monochrome for me), "Jasmine" (Disney, you're to blame for this!) or "Justice" (too much law school already) and, being puzzled, I settled for "Jigsaw" (pun intended :P ).

I used this tutorial (I couldn't find the source, I will update the post if I find it)
