31 Day Challenge – Day 25

Almost done! I know I haven’t been on top form recently, well, for a few weeks now, but I’m determined to get back on track with my blogging. The blogging community is so great, and I’ve had so much support from you guys during this time s thank you all!

Back to the challenge with ‘Inspired by FASHION’

I really love fashion and for this challenge I wanted to pick up on a trend that is such a classic and so simple to recreate!

Colour blocking is a style that is always on trend, it never goes out of fashion!

The reason I love colour blocking, especially for nail art because its simple and you can chose any colours you want! I love picking colours that don’t normally go, the ones I’ve chosen for this mani are three Strictly Come Dancing polishes ‘Feisty’ (pink), ‘Sophistication’ (brown) and ‘Judged’ (green). I wouldn’t normally put these colours together but the addition of the white acrylic paint really makes the manicure pop!

I just wanted to show you what has happened to my acrylic paint, it started off fairly smooth as you can see in the first picture, but as it dried you can see it cracked a lot and started peeling. I was reluctant to put top coat on it because I didn’t want to drag the paint across my nails. Has anyone got any tips for stopping acrylic cracking?

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!

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!

Napkin Nails Take 2!

So as I wasn’t completely happy with my first attempt at napkin nails I thought I’d give it another go using some different napkins. I was in Webbs with my mum (Webbs, if you don’t know, is a massive garden centre and gift shop) and on the furniture display section was a table laid out with picnic things and cutlery on these beautiful floral napkins, which my mum decided to steal for me! (Technically it isn’t stealing ;))

So anyway, here are the napkins that we ‘borrowed’ from Webbs.

Pre Spring Challenge Day 14/Valentines

So today is ‘recreate your favourite challenge’ day! I thought it would be really cool to recreate day 4’s ‘flowers’ theme and incorporate Valentine’s day into it as well!

I started with a basic rose/floral pattern and gave it a Valentines twist with a cut out heart on the accent nails!

So I haven’t actually been able to get on to my laptop for 2 days, long story, but don’t worry, this is good news for you lucky people because you get 4 manicures for the price of 1!

Pre Spring Challenge Updates

Although the challenge is over now, what a great challenge it has been with so much inspiration from so many bloggers, I started late and therefore I am going to carry on, and try and post a couple of challenges each day!

I have managed to complete the next 4 days of the challenge in 1 day! It’s definitely been a long day!
