Nailed it

Hope everyone is having a great Easter! Just wanted to start this post by saying hello to any new readers, as I've found a few comments from fresh faces lately and wanted to thank each and everyone of you. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my blog, it truly makes my day! (And to any loyal readers, thankyou so much for your loyalty!)
Meanwhile, as you may have realised I've been having a little time off lately for Easter so my outfits have been lacking (mostly pyjama's and work uniforms which believe me, you don't need a post wasted on) However, with lots of home time comes, lots of television, and with that comes nails!
Forgoing my normal half-moon nails (circa 1940's) I decided to do a jaunty spotty design, inspired by today's trip to Luna park! (A traditional fair-ground theme-park in Sydney, which is hosting an event for sideshow acts and buskers this weekend. I can't wait to see some of the circus feats, I love the mix of danger, bizarre and comedy)
Plus, to top it off, the purple polish smells like grapes! Yum!
Yet, the pièce de résistance of my nail painting dalliance is surely my Mum's nails, in honour of the Royal Wedding! My Mum is a primary school librarian and the kids adore it when she does something kooky. Previously I've painted her nails with pink and red polka-dots and as this regal occasion approached I couldn't resist an excuse for kitsch! so... Ta-da!

The Union Jack

 The Happy Couple

Hope this gave you a laugh, I certainly found it fun! That's all for today, see you soon!
