cupcake cliché v2




I finally found some time to sit down and spend some time painting my nails. For the past few weeks I've just been wearing a block colour on them but after getting some inspiration from Tumblr I decided to re-do my cupcake nails and add a bit more detail. I think they turned out really well! My white Models Own nail art pen has gone really weird and bubbles keep coming out of it - not good! I'm thinking it must almost be finished though, so maybe I'll need to get a new one.

I done weel 1, day 1 of Couch to 5k today and seriously thought I was going to collapse from exhaustion when I had finished. However after some stretches and warm bubble bath I was feeling amazing. You can't beat the feeling you get after exercising! Oh and I think I've already got over the whole "what if I bump into someone I know" problem - I bumped into my ex boyfriend's Dad whilst crawling back home in agony. Cringe!

I'm so happy that the sun has decided to stay around. I live right on the coast so it's still quite windy but I've been enjoying driving around with my sunglasses on and the windows rolled down. And you know, if you put the heating on just a little bit it really does feel like Summer. ;)

  2. These are so so cute!
    I'm having serious urges to go running, but definitely suffering that 'don't-want-anyone-to-see-me' feeling. I might just go to the gym instead, but the fresh air is so tempting! gah. Well done you though- sounds like you're becoming an exercise queen! x

  32. Very cute nails. How long does nail art like that take?
    I did day 1 of couch to 5k yesterday too. Equal parts amazing and horrible. Felt great for bits of it, other times was sure I was dying. When does that feeling stop?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you for all your lovely comments. :)


    Katie - I done the stripes in one of my previous nail art designs too. You'd think I loved pink the amount of times I use it!

    Eloise - My motivation has only just hit me. The Where Are My Knees? blog is a huge big help!

    Caramel Latte Kiss - It took about 30 minutes I'd say? I usually spread it out over an hour or so but that's because I get distracted online whilst waiting for coats to dry! I have no idea when/if the dying feeling stops, ahhh!

  34. Posts like this inspire me to create, haha; your nails look so amazing and the colours you used look so great together.
    Also, good luck with your exercising, I think it's inspiring for a lot of people out there.

  35. Adore the cupcake style, I wish I had the nails and the steady hand to paint mine!

  36. That's my problem when I go out running too, I hate trainers so I don't want to spend money on new ones, so my years old pink Sketchers are a bit of an embarassment... I guess it's all worth it in the end though!
