Water Marble Wednesday

Hi everyone!

I promised you a new water marble feature in my 1 year of blogging celebratory post, so here is the first marble! If you like water marbles, keep your eyes open for future Wednesday posts.

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

Nail Art A Go-Go Challenge Day 4: Monochrome nails

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the challenge and today’s theme is monochrome nails. That means I can use different shades of any one colour… and of course, I picked purple 🙂 The first idea I had for this didn’t really work out, but luckily I had time for another try and came up with something pretty.tip-top-nail-chic-fairy-dust-sally-hansen-good-to-grape-and-purple-pulse-gradient-half-moon (more…)

31 Day Challenge – Day 9: Rainbow Nails

Hi everyone!

So it’s Monday again… At least today we have rainbow manicures to brighten up the Monday blues a little!

rainbowYay it’s so bright and colourful! This was a fun and colourful mani, and I used by far the most polishes I have ever used for a single manicure… I created a vertical gradient with 2 colours on each finger, and then topped it off with 2 different glitters.
