3rd Birthday!

So Ninja Nails turns 3 today!!!

It does not feel that long ago I first made this blog. I have posted so much since then and have loved it. I look forward to posting more when I go to uni and onwards :)

Disney Princesses

This weeks design is inspired by the Disney princesses. I am a huge Disney fan and love going to Disneyland. I have recently noticed on Tumblr and Instagram a few showing their love for the princess and I though I would show mine too. As a kid my favorite princess was Bell from Beauty and the beast and she still is but as I have got older I can appreciate the other princess too :)

  • Mac in Hangin’ Loose
  • OPI in Big Red Apple
  • MUA in Shade 8
  • Collection 2000 in 45 Lemon Soda
  • 17 in Orange Soda
  • 17 in Nightshade
  • Maybellline in Chocolate Frost
  • Barry M in Mushroom
  • Barry M in Turquoise
  • Natural Collection in Nail Tip Whitener

From left to right, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Bell, Cinderella and Snow White.

Game Boy

I’d like to consider my self a gamer girl but I was probably more of one when I was little. But my one true love with games has all ways been the Game boy as it was on of the first devices I played on :)

I hope you all enjoyed this nail design and if you likes the simple faces I plan on doing Disney Princess soon!

Wonder Woman

This weeks design was to go with my Wonder Woman costume. At my sixth form it is tradition that on our last day we dress up as what we want to be in 10 years time but most of the time people dress up  as something silly or cool. I decided to go as Wonder Woman as in 10 years time id like to be some thing nerdy (Software Engineer) but also who does not want to be a super hero in some way!

This is my nail design. 

I did a pop art inspired POW on my pinkie and BANG on my index. The we have Wonder Woman’s logo on my middle finer and the silver starts from her shorts on my thumb. Lastly my ring finger is a small cartoon picture of Wonder Woman :)

Here are some pictures of the day including my costume!

Me with my friend Jenny who dressed as Superman (Clark Kent)

image

Me with my friend Claire who dress as a doctor. You can see my costume better here.

image

This is me with two of my friends Cat (the orange Pac Man ghost) and Sarah (the blue Pac Man ghost). Sarah and me have been friends since reception or year 1 so it will be sad when we no longer go to the same school (well uni) :(

image

Me and Lara (the girl on the right - dress as a French lady) have been walking to school with each other since year 8 and its going to be weird not talking with each other to school any more. Also her boy friend James (a mechanic) I am going to miss those two :)

image

Lastly a picture of me with my tutor. This guy has been my tutor since year 7 (so for 7 years) and one of my I.T. teacher its going to be weird not having him as a teacher any more.

image

Hope you enjoyed this nail art and seeing my costume :) If you have left school recently I hope you all had an amazing day and remember the adventure is just beginning :) I am now on study leave and have a month of studying and doing my final A-level exams and then I am on holiday till I hopefully go to uni. I also have my sixth form ball coming up at the end of june so make sure you come back then to see what nail design I choose to do :)

The Wah Nails Book of Nail Art

I went to visit my grandparents and uncles in Wales the other week and one of my uncles kindly gave me this book! The Wah Nails Book of Nail Art. I really like this book and think it is great to get some inspiration or look at for infractions to do a technique used in a design. This book is also an amazing £9.99 which is a great price :)

Here are some pictures of the book and some of my favourite designs and pages :)

Storm Troopers

This weeks nails are also Star Wars themed. I chose to do Storm Trooper as I am a bit of a fan of the Dark Side. I do think they could have urned out better as they look a bit swinty.

Pop Art Girl

I am a huge fan of Pop Art and I though Id make my nails look like they where part of a painting. This nails have been popular on youtube but I though id give them ago :) I made my nails matte so that they looked more realistic and part of a painting and I am currently loving the look of matte nails.
