Zebra or Tiger?

13 Aug

So when I’d finish these nails I couldn’t figure out whether they were zebra print or tiger print, I mean aren’t they just the same!? Don’t the stripes on a zebra kinda look the same as those on a tiger? Zebra….tiger….who knows! Yeah, my brain is having a “weird place” day!

Anyway…..I don’t use this base coat anywhere near often enough! I love the Nails Inc Sprinkles polishes and this one is definitely my favourite with the bright blue and purple/pink/gold glitters. I was tempted just to leave my nails plain, but the blog…y’know! Something about them just screamed for gold stamps over the top, so there you go!

Polishes used:
Nails Inc – Pudding Lane Sprinkles

Striping Tape Frenzy

6 Aug

I felt like I hadn’t done a proper striping tape mani for ages and hence these nails were born!  It literally took AGES to place the tape for these, and ages to take it off…so long that the polish got a little tacky and started pulling a bit with the tape removal so they’re not as neat as I would have liked.  I also gave up by the time I got to my pinkie and just whipped out the dotting tool!!

 Polishes used: 

  • Nails Inc – Seymour Walk
  • Nails Inc – Bruton Place
  • Nails Inc – Notting Hill Carnival
  • Barry M – Lychee

OMD2 – Roses

25 Jul

I knew when I started this challenge that I’d never be able to manage a post for every single category, I don’t think I realised how few I’d actually be able to do though!! Real life sucks! How dare it get in the way of me and my nails!  Hmph!

So, without further delay, here is my contribution for day 25 – roses.  I’ve not had ANY TIME at all to paint my nails this month so the best I could come up with for this day was a quick stamp using my konad plates.

How cute is Mr Seal?  I couldn’t resit posing with him as he matched the colour of my polish almost perfectly!!

Polishes used:

  • Nails Inc – Seymour Walk
  • Rimmel – Sea Green
  • Rimmel – Glitter Top Coat
  • Nails Inc – Matte Top Coat

OMD2 – Ikat

13 Jul

So many options to choose from for this day! I opted for one of the yellow/grey colour combo inspired by these bowls which I now MUST HAVE in my life!!  Grey and yellow is a colour combination that I haven’t really used much but I really like it and this pattern is surprisingly easy to do!  For a first attempt I don’t think these are too bad…they’re not the most symmetrical but I’ll cope! I’ll definitely be experimenting with other Ikat patterns/colour combos in the future!

I know there’s a dotticure later on in this challenge but I couldn’t resist pulling out my dotting tools for this day of the challenge too!

(Another) Interlocking Dotticure!

25 Jun

My good old fall back mani!! Whenever I’m uninspired and just want something pretty on my nails this design always comes out!!  It’s so easy to do, and relatively quick and always gets lots of compliments!

These greens were still left out from my attempt at plaid nails so I picked them up again (I can’t resist a good green!).

  • Nails Inc – Marylebone Road
  • Models Own – Peacock Green
