Lucy in the sky with diamonds

I don’t normally go for blingy nails, but I do love studs, so here’s Barbara Daly Electric Spacedust (£3.99/Tesco), which is a sky blue shimmer, with square silver studs from Top Shop. The formula is very thin, comes out patchy, and always looks better in the bottle (in the bottle, it pretends to be a warm turquoise), but it was a surprisingly cute look.

And then, as often happens, I got a bit bored with what I had going on, so decided to draw on tips with a silver metallic Sharpie. Was surprisingly simple, and didn’t look half bad! I also have gold and bronze Sharpies, so I think I’m going to try a waterfall mani with them at some point. Anyway, here’s how it turned out.

I think they look kinda like little superhero costumes! I’m sure it would’ve looked much better if my nail tips weren’t such an utter shambles at the moment, but I’m almost at the stage of needing to cut them all back to nothing and let them recover for a bit, so I’m having my fun while I can.
