NOTD: The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Now this isn't what I'd call one of my typical NOTD posts as I usually just show you all a photograph of a pretty nail varnish on my nails but today I have something a little different to show you. 
It's very rare that I wear nail varnish on its own as I've always got something jazzy on my nails, from spots to stripes to penguins in a blizzard. So on the rare occasion when I'm wearing just a pretty coloured nail varnish, I'll do an NOTD post. I think I featured Topshop 'Pool Party' in my most recent NOTD post.

Anyway, let's talk about the fun things...
If you have read my blog from the very beginning or watched my youtube videos then you'll know that I love The Very Hungry Caterpillar. My mamma used to read the story to me during and after pregnancy and ever since being a little girl, I have loved The Very Hungry Caterpillar. And still at nearly 21, I have an obsession with it, I have a Very Hungry Caterpillar mug, blanket and cushions (that's one thing you all now know about me). So since I love The Very Hungry Caterpillar so much, I have spent my afternoon creating The Very Hungry Caterpillar nails. I absolutely adore them and thought I'd do a NOTD post. 

I'm considering doing NOTD posts featuring nail art as well as normal nail varnishes so if that's something you'd like to see then please let me know. 


If anyone would like me to do a tutorial, please let me know as I don't mind doing one, I'll just be doing it on a nail wheel as I don't want to remove this from my nails (it took a long time to do). I will warn you though, it's a very fiddly and detailed design so it takes a lot of time, patience and effort.

Are any of my lovely readers Very Hungry Caterpillar fans?
