But that's not to say I don't yearn for cute patterns or designs - so I decided to try nail transfers. Joe of all people came across the website DIY Nails while browsing one of his favourite brands - Abandon Ship Apparel as they had created their own transfers. As a treat he bought me a set, as well as these cute cat head silhouette transfers.
What I love about the Abandon ship decals is that the images are very "traditional tattoo" in style - the tooth, the anchor - it reminds me of Sailor Jerry style artwork. I also love the seagull - being from Brighton and an BHAFC fan!
The transfers are really simple to apply, even I could do it!:
Can you do your own nail art? Or do you think transfers are the way forward?
