Above Knuckle Rings & On My Nails


I hope everyone had a good weekend. I can't believe it's Monday again, can you?


I'd been wanting to try above knuckle rings for a while because I love how dainty and different they look. But I wasn't really sure where I should buy them from or if i'd even end up wearing them. I hardly ever wear normal rings so decided to get these ones from eBay and give them a test run before I splash out on some sterling silver ones. 

I honestly thought these rings would be really uncomfortable because they sit right above your knuckle, but you can hardly tell that they are there. I wore them all day and they did start to dig in a little bit but that's only because they are a tiny bit small for my fingers. The fact that they are so tiny is the only downside about them really. I don't have the smallest fingers in the world, which is why I am wearing them on my baby and ring finger. But oh well, I didn't pay a lot for them so wasn't expecting much and the size was specified when I chose them.
 But overall I'm really pleased with the way these look and will definitely be trying out some more designs. Have you tried above knuckle rings?

This week's nail polish is Barry M Cyan Blue (294). The sunny weather put me in the mood to wear a bright shade. What's on your nails this week?

    1. They're not amazing quality but for the price they're pretty good and look really cool! They also came in that cute little bag with the heart confetti, so pretty! If I buy any sterling silver ones i'll post about them with a link to where I got them from. xx

  6. I'm not sure about knuckle rings yet, do they not feel weird having them half-way down your fingers? having said that, they do look lovely on you :) xx

    1. Nope they don't feel weird at all! I almost find them more comfortable than normal rings because you can't feel them between your fingers. Thanks :) xx

  12. I only have one over the knuckle ring but it's really cute and I'd love some more! I like blingy rings so they're perfect for stacking.

  15. These are adorable, but I've been searching for some cheap but cute ones in gold rather than silver. Etsy has loads of lovely ones, but they're a bit more expensive and I don't want to take the plunge and buy some and then never wear them
