Guest Post: A Blog from Blackpool

Hi Jewels for Hope Readers! Please welcome Dani from A Blog from Blackpool!


I love nail art I can’t get enough. Over the past few months I have become obsessed with painting my nails. I must do it 3 times a week and never plain. I am a huge fan of nail art stamping, Konad being my favourite and you can find out more about stamping on my blog. My collection of nail varnish is ever growing but seen as I paint my nails so often I like to see my huge collections as an investment! Being asked to guest post I thought I’d share with you my nails today and a few polishes I’m hoping to add to my collection.

Today I decided to use the candy colours by Models Own ( They ship internationally.

I chose to layers to colours in horizontal stripes changing the order of the colours. Now time for the fun bit! I used a “fauxnad” Bundle monster stamping plate and chose a zebra print design which I applied using Konad special polish.

It still needs a little tidy up and I don’t claim to be any sort of expert but the whole design took less than 30min and the stamping only took a fraction of that time! I love the simple but impressive effects you can achieve with nail stamping.  Being a Shopaholic I’m always looking for new colours to add to the collection.

Do you like nail art? What do you think are the key nail colours for this season?
Any questions leave a comment or pop over to my blog!
