Summer of Guest Posts: Ithinity Beauty

Hi everyone!

So, as I mentioned in a previous blog post - and as you will have probably noticed by my lack of posting these past weeks - I am doing an internship right now! It's amazingly fun and I love it lots and lots. 

However, there's a downside as well: I get home quite late and am so tired from working (how do grown up people do this??!) that I just want to lie on the couch and not do nail art things. In the weekends I luckily have some time for nail art, so hopefully I will still be able to post my own nail art once a week/every other week.

Now, the good news! I came up with a plan to have some lovely posts on my blog this summer - with guest posts! I've asked some of my favourite bloggers if they would want to make a guest post for me. You'll get one guest post per week, every Saturday, for the entire Summer. Hence my brilliant name: Summer of Guest Posts! :D Lol also please excuse my amateuristic logo.



This week, the lovely Ithi from Ithinity Beauty kicks off our guest post series! She does such lovely designs who always have a cute story behind them - I think that's what I love most about Ithi's nail art! Ithi has great freehand skills - as you will see below ;) I was very glad she wanted to guest post for me and I adore the design she came up with - GAH IT'S JUST TOO CUTE! Without further ado, please enjoy!

Hi everyone!

Nice to meet you all if I've not had the pleasure of meeting yet! And of course a huge thank you to the lovely Robin for allowing me to guest post today! I am a big fan of Roaring Nails so I am really honored to be be here sharing some nail art with you today.

When Robin asked me if I would like to guest post I had to jump at the chance! There was no prompt or specific thing so I decided that I would try and create a manicure featuring Robin's favorite animals. On the list was Guinea pigs, platypus and cats. Well, that certainly gave me enough to work from. Looking around on Pinterest I came across this uber cute picture and I knew I had to give it a go!




I only used two polishes for this design, DA's #45 and Barry M's 'Tangerine' and created the rest entirely with acrylic paint.  I'd like to think of them as best friends who enjoy each others company so much that they stay out chatting until the stars come out!



I hope you like my design and that you all have a fantastic day. Thank you again to the fabulous Robin for hosting me today!

Love
Ithfifi
