12 Days of Christmas: Ugly Sweater

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Challenge Your Nail Art 12 Days of Christmas challenge is ugly sweaters. Ugly sweaters aren’t really a part of Christmas here since it’s summer but I think they are a pretty well known Christmas image. I realised I had never done argyle nails before so I decided to go with Christmas coloured argyle sweater nails. Painted Fingertips | Ugly argyle sweaters (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge is Santa and/or Elves. A while ago a friend sent me a picture of a Santa hat nail so I decided to go with Santa and elf hats and coats. Painted Fingertips | Santa and elf hats and coats (more…)

August Tri-Polish Challenge: Octopus nails

Hi everyone!

This month I am taking part in the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts Tri-Polish Challenge once again. This month’s colours are red, blue, and yellow. At first I had trouble coming up with good ideas for these colours (and I still need a couple more ideas!) but then I saw these adorable nails done by Wondrously Polished and I got inspired! essence-wanna-be-your-sunshine-sinful-colours-neptune-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-octopus-anchor-seahorse-starfish-nautical-nails (more…)

May Tri-Polish Challenge Part 1: Leadlight Stamping

Hi everyone!

This month, the colours for the Tri-polish challenge are red, green and purple. I decided it was a good opportunity to finally try out a technique I’ve been seeing a lot of lately: leadlight stamping.

As far as I know, this technique was pioneered by Messy Mansion, who even brought out a whole range of polishes especially for it. The idea is that you stamp over a light background, then fill in the image with very sheer jelly polishes so that you can still see the stamping through them. tri-polish-challenge-may-stamping-leadlight-moyou-suki-collection-07-sinful-colros-hey-you!-sally-hansen-good-to-grape-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-essence-absolutely-pure

The Neverending Pile: Drugstore Polish

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Neverending Pile Challenge is a drugstore-available polish. For me, that’s almost all I own, since most other polishes are out of my price range. I used polishes from a few different brands, including 3 untrieds, and I decided to try creating some stamping decals again. essence-colour-&-go-hello-spring!-revlon-whimsical-stamping-decals-sinful-colors-fig-catrice-keep-pool-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-bm-321-m64-stamping-plates (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 26: Graffiti

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge is Graffiti. What better to use than one of the Nails Inc Graffiti polishes? I decided to combine that with my first splatter manicure.

Hi everyone!

We’re into the second week of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge and things are getting a little more complicated. This weeks themes are all about ‘art101’ and require a little more thinking than week 1!
