40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hobbies!

I've joined a new nail art challenge group; New Crumpets Nail Tarts!  Of course, the biggest challenge is going to be keeping up with the weekly challenges but I'm up for it!  This is my inaugural post, with challenges most Friday's through to mid-February.  

This week, the theme is hobbies.  I have to admit, I don't have many hobbies other than nail art, which takes up most of what little free time that I do have!  There was a time when I did attempt knitting but I never was good at it; I couldn't grasp purling nor could I ever do the starter stitches so was stuck knitting scarves and even that was after someone set up my needles!  I wish I could have grasped it; I do love the look of those knitted sweater coats and wish I was talented enough to create them!  Unfortunately, the only knitting for me will be on my nails; this is what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats each of Love, Angeline Amber Acapella with accent of OPI My Vampire is Buff, no top coat.


Stamped using images from MoYou Fashionista Collection-02 and 03 using MdU 43.

MoYou Fashionista Collection-03

Added image to the accent from MoYou Hipster Collection-03 using MdU 22, 43 and Funky Fingers Dark Knight.

Top coated to finish.

I didn't want to deal with glitter removal on right hand, plus this is my test hand to see how the images look; it's OPI My Vampire is Buff stamped with images from same plate with MdU 22.

Decided to go for the matte look; added coat of OPI matte.

Here are a whole lot more hobbies from other ladies in the group to check out!

Thanks for looking!


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who failed at knitting! Good thing we have our nails, right? I love how yours turned out!

  2. I've thrown the towel away with knitting and crochet AGES ago. I'm not genetically able to do it, even if my mom is pretty good! I like your nails, they remind me a brown pull-over my mom did for me when I was a little girl. =)

  3. very, very cool design! I really love the knitted stampings and wool on the accent. And the brown glitter polish looks amazing as well!

  4. Beautiful mani. I loved the base you chose

  5. Impressing! I like such things so much. Remember, I rested in Ibiza last month, and a master from the studio nails created something like that but in Ibiza style.
