The change came one day when a particularly patient friend of mine showed me the beauty of it in words that I understood. See, I’m not the sort of girl who has a ‘dream wedding’ pinboard, mainly due to a lack of love life, but also because I am not especially girly. Except when it comes to nails. That is how, during that fateful day in the autumn of 2012, a long-suffering PR intern called Sandra taught me about the beauty of Pinterest.
“But you can find manicures galore!” I was sold.
I was soon sucked into the heady world of Pinterest nail art, and I haven’t looked back since. Every Sunday night without fail, I will scroll through my timeline and find a fancy bit of nail art work to try, in an attempt to wow my co-workers (the lack of ‘dream wedding’ board is no doubt becoming more understandable at this point).
As it’s January, it’s only right a winter nail is done, because what’s the point in expressing yourself through your nails if you’re not involving the weather – I am British after all!
Easy enough, right? Blue, blue, blue, white, blue, dot, dot, dash, dash, top coat, done.
There was a minor hiccup that my blue was on its last legs, but I didn’t let that stop me, because who doesn’t love a bit of pinprovisation?
Unfortunately for me I have a dimly lit flat, so what looked good in the surprisingly dark room (my main light source is several strings of fairy lights) didn’t necessarily stand the test of the harsh light of day. It could have gone worse, ignoring the fact that I am neither a hand model nor do I own stag themed jewellery, but not my tidiest work!
Anyway, if you think you can do better (NB: you can) we’d love to see it!
