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. (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Vampy

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile challenge is vampy. This normally means a dark-but-not-black polish colour, but to me it just means a colour you might wear if you were a vampire! I had one untried which fit the bill perfectly: Catrice Berry Potter and Plumbledore. (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…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the neverending pile challenge is jelly polishes. I don’t have a lot of jellies but it just so happens that I picked two up recently. I didn’t even realise they were jellies at the time but now I got to put them to good use! (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 20: Pop Culture

Hi everyone!

It’s almost the end of week 3 of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge hosted by Gnarly Gnails. Today’s theme is Pop Culture. I struggled for a while thinking of ideas for this theme, but after some thought I realised one of the main aspects of our pop culture is celebrities – whether they are singers, actors, or simply rich ‘personalities’, most of us have at least heard of them and some people relish knowing as many details of their lives as possible. Of course, here in the nail community, different nail art styles are a part of our specific pop culture, so I decided to combine the two and do a recreation of some celebrity nails. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s day 18 of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge and today’s theme is Sci-Fi. This gave me the perfect opportunity to do a nail design that’s been milling around in the back of my mind for some time – Green Lantern nails. I do like Green Lantern, but I’m not really a huge fan… unlike my boyfriend! Green Lantern is one of his favourite figures because the fact that the Green Lantern uses his will to fight is very true to life – each one of us has to use our will to get any of the things we have in life. I do think it’s a very cool concept which is why I decided to represent it on my nails today. (more…)
