Textured Dotted Gradient

Hi everyone!

Today I have some simple but effective nail art to share with you. I’d been itching to do a dotticure, so I decided on a gradient dotticure. Of course, I needed to make it more interesting than that, so I decided to go with textured dots. I did something similar more than a year ago when I first got my hands on the Sally Hansen Sugar Coat polishes. Back then I combined two dot colours on each nail, this time I decided on just one dot colour per nail and here is the result:Painted Fingertips | Textured dotted gradient (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today I have once again managed to combine the #31DC2014 prompt with my own series, Water Marble Wednesday. So far in the series I’ve done a brightly coloured marble and a cute bee water marble. Today, I used my water marble to create a gradient. Painted Fingertips | Water Marble Gradient for #31DC2014 Day 10 - gradient (more…)

Dalmatian Gradient

Hi everyone!

Today I have some simple but very pretty nail art for you. A few months ago I was excited to see Essence release their dalmatian glitter – a black and white glitter topper. I love it and it went perfectly over a gradient!sally-hansen-lustre-shine-lava-tip-top-nail-chic-a-brush-of-lilac-essence-over-the-rainbow-101-dalmatians-black-dress-and-white-tie (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: What was I thinking, buying this?

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Neverending Pile Challenge is: ‘What was I thinking, buying this?’

I have to admit I cheated a little on this one. I know exactly what I was thinking when I bought this! I was thinking that I liked the colours and that I should have at least one bar glitter topper. However, I know that many people aren’t a fan of bar glitter, so I thought it would be a good one to use for today’s theme. gradient_essence_LOL_sally_hansen_pacific_blue_essence_purple_sugar_topped_glitter_sally_hansen_fuzz-sea (more…)

April Tri-Polish Challenge Part 1: Roses

Hi everyone!

My posting schedule is a bit off this week. After the long weekend we took for my boyfriend’s birthday I did my Monday post on Tuesday and only after posting it did I realise I was supposed to do my Tri-Polish Tuesday post.

I took part in this challenge a few times last year but I haven’t had a chance for it yet this year. The rules have changed a little and instead of using the exact same 3 polishes for each nail art design you only have to use the same 3 colours and you can switch polishes each week.

This month the colours are pink, yellow and blue. Here’s what I came up with:essence-colour-&-go-wanna-be-your-sunshine-happy-end-revolution-saphire-roses-nail-art (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 24 – Abstract

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge is abstract. When I saw Gnarly Gnails’ post for day 22 – surrealism – I loved it so much that I had to recreate it for today.
