I'm not really good at painting nails, but I've started to get bored with the same bright nail varnishes that I own. However saying that, I could never own a pale colour. I find them too mundane. I tried not painting my nails so they can grow, but that only lasted a week.
So then I decided to paint and pattern them.
I've tried leopard, galaxy and peacock feathers. I've gotten bored of the same old patterns like spots and stripes. Not sure how I feel about the feathers, I think they'd look better in a different colour.
