Spiralling

20 Sep

Hello! I’m back! My nail polishes still don’t have a home but I couldn’t wait any longer to get them out and start blogging again!

As it’s been about a month since I last did anything more complicated than put a single colour on my nails I decided to ease myself back into the world of nail art with a bit of stamping!

The good thing about having moved is that you get a fresh start and that means I’m making an effort to use some of the polishes that don’t usually make much of an appearance on here but definitely should! It’s like falling in love with my hobby all over again!

I’m looking forward to catching up on all of your blogs over the next few days!

Polishes used:

  • MoYou – Black
  • Barry M – Emerald Green
  • Sinful Colours – Call You Later
  • China Glaze – Smoke and Ashes
  • MoYou Sailor Collection 05

Nebula

20 Aug

I had absolutely no idea where I was going when I started these nails….I just fished out a tonne of polishes I wanted to use, a make up sponge and got to work.  I quite like the finished result, they kind of remind me of nebula with all the purples and shimmery gold colours!

  • Sinful Colours – Nail Junkie
  • Sinful Colours – Let’s Meet
  • Sinful Colours – Snow Me White

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!

OMD2 – Rainbow

I LOVE bright colours!  This day of the challenge gave me a chance to recreate my rainbow gradient from earlier on in the year….I decided to add a waterfall design over the top too, because more colours is good! Bright nails just make me smile 😀

OMD2 – Coral Nails

2 Jul

Day 2 of OMD2 is Coral. For some reason whenever I do coral nails my brain always goes tribal or geometric….geometric won out this time and I’ve done a tape mani randomly placing different coloured triangles on my nails!

I really like the colour combination in these nails, it’s quite striking I think!

OMD2 – Mint Nails

1 Jul

I started blogging just before the OMD challenge last year and it was a great way for me to find out lots of excellent blogs to visit as well as getting huge amounts of inspiration.

The ladies behind OMD are back again with OMD Part Deux and I’ve decided to give it a crack!! I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to take part on every day of the challenge but I’ll  be doing my best to submit entries for as many as possible!

With that said, here are my Mint nails for Day 1.  I’d had this look in my brain for a little while and mint just seemed like the perfect background to try out these little daisies!

The only problem with joining in with challenges like these is that you have to take your nails off before you’ve properly had time to enjoy them! *sad face*

Looking forward to seeing all the other entries and I’m sure I’ll be discovering even more new blogs throughout the month as a result!

Polishes used:

  • Barry M – Mint Green (304)
  • a England – Holy Grail
  • Sinful Colours – Snow Me White

Spring Fail

3 Apr

I really loved my Spring Mix mani that I wore for almost a week (unheard of I know!) so I wanted to use the same colours and try something similar, but different, which in my opinion is a bit of a nail fail!  I kept the majority of the nails really simple with just white dots on a coloured background but then went full out crazy on my thumb and ring finger with a fishtail mani.  I don’t think it works, I seem to be picking really weird colours to work together at the moment, maybe I need my eyes testing!

  • OPI – Honk If You Love OPI
  • Nails Inc – Phoenix Place
  • Essie – Turquoise & Caicos
