Black & Gold NOTD

I've been suffering a bit of nail art block this week.
I have tried a few different designs that I've had in my head for a while but they didn't turn out how I wanted and a complete lack of inspiration meant I was having trouble trying to think up anything new.
So I did what inspired me on Day 15 of the Makeup Savvy Nail Challenge.
I opened my jewellery draw!






I've already mentioned that I love anything with skulls on it, but I'm also liking studs, spikes and accessories with a black and gold colour combination at the moment and that's what inspired these nails.

I used Barry M Black, Gold Foil, Gold Glitter and Milani Jewel FX Gold.

Do you suffer with nail block too? If so what do you do to get your inspiration back?

P.S. Today is the last day to vote on the Makeup Savvy Challenge so if you haven't voted yet please vote for your favourite nails HERE! And a huge thank you to anyone who has voted for my Tangled nails, I honestly appreciate it so much.

  6. I get nail blocks all the time! Usually do with browsing through what others have done on their nails then improvising from there... But your idea of looking into jewelry is such a fab one! I'm going to ponder through my collection in the weekend *fingers crossed* I come out with something cute!
