Plaid and boring nail art

Today's manicure came about when I was trying to cheer myself up. I was rummaging (as you do) through my Helmer and came across China Glaze's Black Diamond.

After putting on a couple of coats, I decided to add some white and grey stripes of acrylic paint:

I also added a few lines of glitter to jazz it up a little.

 It's not terrible, but it's not exactly exciting is it? I guess it reflects the strange mood I've been in recently. I'm not still not my usual self for various reasons. Perhaps if I wear more pink, it might cheer me up a little...

So, was it boring enough for you?



  1. I'm sorry you feel down, feel better soon.
    That mani is great, looks like something to wear out to a club. I love it and will need to try it some time.

  2. @Karen, thank you :) I'll be back to normal soon enough (I hope!)

  3. @rock-or-not, thank you lady!

  4. I love it!! I think it's super awesome!!

  5. The title is a bit misleading. It's far from boring. Love it.

  6. @Katt, I'm sorry about that. That's just the way I was feeling when I did it. I'm glad you like it though.

  7. It's not boring! I love anything with a bit of glitter. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  8. Not boring at ALL!!! very pretty, and it would be awesome in greens or blues...Maybe your color choice reflects the time of year/weather? I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for Spring and a change :)

  9. Love it! Hope you're feeling better soon!

  10. I understand being down... I spent a few months where I didn't even paint my nails at all. Talk about sad!

    But I think that nail design is really pretty! It's got a chic sort of vibe, kind of edgy too. Really nice!

  11. I agree that it's not boring whatsoever! I love this and think I'll copy it for going out tomorrow night!

    Smile and eventually your mood will catch up with it! Alternatively, grab a bottle of wine, some friends and go out dancing xxrt

  12. @Sophie, thank you :)

    @GTwinkies, you know, I reckon the shade was probably the wrong one for the mood. Should have chosen fluro, lol! The weather was good today...I saw lots of signs of spring!

    @FrugallyMe, thank you luvvy.

    @Laynie, luckily it was just a four day 'funk'...feeling a lot better now x

    @Jennius, thank you sweets :)

    @Mand, you grab the bottle, the mates and go out for me (got an early start tomorrow, lol!) I'll crank up the radio at home and dance like no-one can see me. Sound good?

    Thank you all for your kind comments, I really appreciate it xxx

  13. Absolutely fitting for an evening out! Well done - looks really attractive.

  14. @nailcareASKLisa, thank you :))

  15. i actually love this, it's not boring at all! the stripes are super chic :)

  16. I love this!! I don't think it's boring at all. You always do such cute manis!! I hope you cheer up soon. Pink should help a bit ;0).
