31 Day Challenge – Day 21

The first of the ‘Inspired by..’ days. Some of these are really tough, especially this one ‘Inspired by a Colour’.

I kind of just assumed that I can do anything for this, so I was inspired by the neon theme which seems to be occurring a lot in manicures at the moment.

The polish I used is a Colour Unlimited un-named polish, but its a neon coral type colour which doesn’t really show on these photos. After 2 coats I painted a houndstooth pattern using black acrylic paint.

My first attempt at houndstooth and using acrylic paint and I’m pretty pleased with it, I think I just need some more practice!

Return of the 31 Day Challenge – Day 20

So after my hectic week of forgetting my camera and stressing about my life in general, its back to normal business!

WATER MARBLE!

I really like water marble and I’ve done quite a few in my nail art time, but they are by no means easy or clean!

This is not the cleanest of manicures I have ever done, but I love the colours and the messiness did wear off after the next day!

HALF MOONS!

Half-moons are one of the most classic and classy manicures around. You see so many celebrities wearing this look from Lauren Conrad to Dita Von Teese!

What I love about the half moon mani is that you can chose any colours you want, its such a versatile look!

31 Day Challenge – Day 15

DELICATE!

I have just ordered a Konad stamp because I have lots of Konad plates but no stamp to be able to use them! I thought that this would be the perfect use of the stamps to create a delicate print however the stamp didn’t turn up in the post today so I had to think of something a bit different!

So instead of a delicate pattern, what about something delicate on my nails, like real flowers!

Happy Easter everyone! I’ve been super super busy recently and I really do apologise for the lack of posts over the past week 😦

Anyway, on to the nails!

Day 12 – STRIPES!

This manicure was a bit rushed so its quite messy, but overall I’m happy with it and I might have to redo it properly at some point. Its a pastel watercolour nail with black chevrons/stripes over the top!

RAINBOW!

So as I’ve already done a rainbow manicure for the Pre Spring Challenge here, I decided that I’d try something a bit different with this rainbow mani and at the same time show you one of my new purchases!

This is a really simple glitter gradient using my new Technic polish – Carnival!
