Red Nose Day 2017

Friday, 24 March 2017

Happy Friday and Happy Red Nose Day!


I know that some of you outside of the UK may wonder what on earth Red Nose Day is and rather briefly, it's a UK wide charity day aimed at raising money for the charity Comic Relief (who have a vision for a just world, free from poverty). On Red Nose Day you're encouraged to raise money through laughter and just like the stereotypical clown, don a red nose while you're at it.




Along with a host of merchandise, there is also a new batch of noses released and this year I picked up 3 (see my 2015 Red Nose Day post here). I really wanted The Snorcerer but am happy with the ones I got; Sniffer, Snootankhamun and Snuffles.

I created some nail art in honour of the day and decided to stick with the comedy vibe and use some more tiny pom poms. Then I added in a nail based on Sniffer and after about 5 variations finally gave up the will to live and just added a text nail.



I used Models Own Red Lustre and White Light for the base colours and topped with my fave Barry M matte topcoat.



I hope you like it, seeing as these were 24 hour only nails I was pleased with how they came out (well apart from that pointer finger) and was happy that the pom poms stayed nicely stuck in the topcoat.

Right I'm off, whilst I've been poorly these last couple of weeks I seem to have lost not only my Nail Art skills, but also my ability to type a coherent blog post.

Hope you enjoy the Comic Relief show tonight (I'm very excited for Red Nose Actually) and have a great weekend.

  1. These are just too darn adorable and gave me a great big chuckle! Thanks for explaining Red Nose day -- it made it all that much more enjoyable. My nail art mojo has taken a unapproved vacation too, maybe they're together somewhere... Overall, I think these nails are terrific and you're too hard on yourself, maybe, just a little bit.... ;)

    1. I hope wherever they've gone they're having a good time and feeling happy with themselves! :) I'm missing my nail mojo and although I disagree that yours is needed back (your nails are always fab), I'm in desperate need of some inspiration. Thankfully the sunshine yesterday helped xx

  2. Oh, these are too cute! The Pom poems make it feel so soft and cuddly (literally and visually), like a teddy bear. It makes me imagine that the little dog is a stuffed toy.

  3. Haha these are adorable :) And I can NEVER to decent freehand writing on my nails (I can barely do it on paper) so I think these are fab! I was really looking forward to the Love Actually mini sequel & it didn't disappoint! Sorry to hear you've been feeling poorly, hope you feel better soon!

    Love Aysh xox

    1. Thanks Aysh, I'm also terrible at freehand writing but thankfully it's slightly hidden here. I also loved Red Nose Actually and although I missed some of my faves, it was nice to see sneak peeks of the others xx
