Don't take life too seriously!

Remember when you were a kid and you'd paint every single nail a different colour? I don't know about you, but I never stopped doing it (and I get so much crap about it). But it's good fun and pleasing to the eye (at least mine). I know that so many people find it a sort of tacky no-no, but that's what makes me want to do it even more (childish much?).

Here's a some terribly fun, slightly tacky but oh-so-lovely nail inspiration:

I think I may have to recreate these carelessly cool looks in my next manicure. 

If a teen magazine say it's a do, then it has to be. Right?
My way: Bright, well thought out colours in a particular order(because I'm anal like that). Maybe i should learn to let go for a change! I do, however love the summery candy-tones that now grace my finger-tips. 

Russian Doll's lovely rendition of the trend. I especially love how she placed the pink by the dark red to create a bit of a clash, and didn't alternate between cool and warm colours as I usually do.

The celebrity way. Also seen on Pixie Lott, Rihanna and Jordin Sparks (among others, I'm sure).

Love it or hate it? Let me know!

I'm way cheap as well, but I collect them with the sisters, find them at fleamarkerts and sales etc. :D
