Bumble Bee Nails

Okay, so here goes nothing, my first proper blog post. I can't claim this as my own idea because I saw these nails on another blog a week or so ago, and I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it. If I find it, I'll give you the link, I promise!

Summer is well on it's way out over in the UK, even though I haven't been on my holiday yet! So I thought last night that it was now or never to do these nails, as I think they're really summery. These are the polishes I used:

2True Strengthener & Hardener (I use this as a base coat and a top coat too if I'm feeling lazy)

NYC Quick Dry Polish - 296 Water Street Blue

Missguided - Misslead (Free in a magazine a month or so ago)

Models Own Wah Nail Art Pen

Nailene French Tip Pen

I got the nail art pens last week for my birthday and they're great, so easy to use. I'm a complete newbie to this though, so my first attempt was a little shaky at best. The NYC polish really impressed me though, it was a bargain from Superdrug at £1.79 a bottle and so I picked up a couple of other colours whilst I was at it, I couldn't resist!

And here is the end result! The little black 'whoosh' lines didn't come out brilliantly, in fact on my middle nail they're more like polka dots, but I think I didn't do too badly for a first attempt!

My Mum loves these and I've promised her that the next evening she's off work, I'll give these another try on her nails.

What do you think? Do these nail art pens get easier to use with a bit of practise?


  1. I love this design! I love the simplicity of the dots and then the little bee is so sweet!

    1. Thank you! I certainly can't take credit for the idea but it was much easier to do than I thought :)
