cupcake cliché

Over the past year or so, like so many other people, I've been completely obsessed with cupcakes. I love baking them, I buy things just because they have cupcakes on them, and now I've painted my nails to look like them! This is by no means a unique creation, but nonetheless I do like them and have received many compliments so far. This past few months all I've done is paint leopard print nail art and I'm getting bored so it's about time I tried to come up with some new ideas! What have you all been painting your nails like lately?

It was attempt number 2 at using my Models Own nail art pen and I think I'm getting the hang of it. My only problem is that the nail polish tends to come out far too quickly, causing me to apply in in a huge blob and then my nail polish starts to bubble. I'll get there one day!

Last night I had a look through my followers because I wanted to find some new blogs to read. I ended up spending a few hours blog-hopping and have found some brilliant blogs that have now been added to my dashboard. Some of my new favourites include Oh Really?, Sugarpatch, Emily the Brave, A Million Dresses and War At the Roses.
