31DC2015 Day 10: Gradient!

Painted Fingertips | Water Marble Gradient for #31DC2014 Day 10 - gradient

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme is gradient, and I finally got around to doing some nails I’ve been meaning to do for ages. For this same prompt last year, Sarah from Chalkboard Nails did some fireflies on a sunset gradient. The look was hugely popular and I loved it too! I have finally done my own version. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s the first Tuesday in June and that means the first tri-polish challenge for the month. This month’s colours are nude, turquoise and coral. I decided to start it off with a bang – I’m very proud of these nails. For a while I’ve been admiring the lovely detailed designs done by Vic & Her Nails and I took inspiration from this design of hers for today. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile challenge is indies, and since there’s no chance I have an untried indie, I just have a normal post for you today – although there are a couple of untried polishes in here! (more…)

31 Day Challenge – Day 30: Inspired by a tutorial

Hi everyone!

Yayyy, it’s the second last day of the challenge! I just have to get out one last design tonight and I’ll have DONE my first ever nail art challenge 😀

Today’s theme is inspired by a tutorial, and even though there are tons of great tutorials to choose from, there is one I have been waiting to try since the start of the challenge. Adventures in Acetone does great tutorials and she has one for just about every adorable animal under the sun 🙂animals (more…)

31 Day Challenge – Day 24: Inspired by a book

Hello ladies!

It’s a public holiday (Heritage Day) here in South Africa today, so I’ve scheduled this post and I’m probably lying in bed sleeping in 😀

For today’s challenge, I had to create some book-inspired nails, and I was happy to use one of my favourite books ever: Sabriel by Garth Nix. It’s part of a trilogy (Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen) which were my absolute favourite books as a teenager and are still among my favourites. (more…)

31 Day Challenge – Day 23: Inspired by a movie

Hi everyone!

Today I tried some of the most complex nail art I’ve ever done: Finding Nemo nails! They’ve been done before plenty of times, but I knew I wanted to do an animation for my movie-inspired nails, and Finding Nemo was one of my favourite animations ever. Before I show you the pictures, I want you to focus very carefully: Look at my thumb, index finger, middle finger, CLOSE YOUR EYES FOR A MILLISECOND, and look at my pinkie. Seriously, don’t even THINK about looking at my trainwreck of a ring finger! Sadly I didn’t have time to try redo it! (more…)
