Finding Fimo :)

Hello everyone! Welcome again to new followers - I appreciate you taking the time to read my ramblings and look and my nail art :)

I had a rare moment to myself today as Scarlett is out with my parents, so I took the time to paint! While I was looking for my favourite striping brush I spotted a couple of wheels of Fimo shapes that I bought from the pound shop a while back. I then remembered the Fimo canes I received from Erica at Erica's Nails and More for participating in her November challenge last year, and a plan formed... ;)

I started with a base of Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau, and then painted leaves with aforementioned favourite striping brush (!) in Revlon Siren, LA Colors Mint and NYC High Line Green. I then added top coat and applied some very carefully cut (I'm soooo clumsy, you have no idea how dangerous something like that is for me!) Fimo flowers and a couple of pre-cut Fimo butterflies...

I had to take the pictures and then jump in the car to pick up Scarlett, so tidy up was non-existent at the time. I'm sure you're all comforted to know that this has now been fixed ;)

I'm happy with how cute these are and look forward to see how much time passes before I lose the first piece of Fimo!!! Place your bets...


  1. I've nominated you for a Liebster Award!

  2. Whoaaaa - super cute! :D
    How long did you manage to have these on without them falling out?

    1. Thanks! I made it through to the end of the day - one flew off while I was getting ready for bed and a few more were gone by morning. Its definitely a "one night only" look! ;)
