A few days ago I posted some bee nails inspired partially by the fact my name means bumble bee in Greek. Today I have some more nail art inspired by my favourite things so without further ado I introduce my mushroom nail art!

If you know me at all, you would know I have a thing for bees. My name Melissa, in Greek, means honey bee and ever since I was little I've always enjoyed cute bee related items. Therefore when I had the opportunity to do some bee nails for an instagram competition, I jumped on it.

The other day I showed some swatches of the polishes from the June What's In-die Box. Well I just had to do some nail art with the polishes and this is what I came up with.

My foray into instagram has definitely been bad for my wallet. It was through my instagram account that I discovered the joy of Australian Indie Polishes. Before jumping into buying a heap of indie polishes, I decided to purchase the June What's In-die Box to get a taste of some indie polishes.
For those who don't know, What's In-die Box is a box that contains 5 different, exclusive polishes, created by different Australian indie makers, to a theme each month.
June's theme was All Holo for What's In-die Box's first birthday and OH MY GOSH, I am an indie convert. Anyway, it's only taken me two months to swatch these but they are amazing and I have a full review of each polish below.
First up is...
Pink Blitz by Peita's Polish
Pink Blitz is a gorgeous barbie pink scattered holo with flawless formulation.The pictures below show two coats without a top coat. In real life it is a bit brighter than in the pictures, however the sun did not want to cooperate so I only have pictures in artificial light and with flash. However WOW! this is one of my favourite polishes from the box but then I am just a sucker for pink polishes.

Hello and welcome to my new blog, again. This is my third nail art blog I have started and I promise it will be the last one. Some of you may be wondering where the name Clavum es originates from. Well Clavum es is Latin for Nail Art. I wanted to name my blog something sort of scientific, due to the fact I am a scientist, so I decided to give nail art a scientific name. Most scientific names are in Latin, so I simply translated nail art and the name stuck.
Now straight into some nail art as after all, this is a nail art blog.
