Hey! Here are my Tribal nails for day 16!

I wanted something quite neutral for today, so I used Modern Love from Deborah Lippmann as the base colour.

For the pattern I used two nail art pens from Barry M, a black one and a silver one. I drew the black parts of the patterns first, then added the silver after! It was surprisingly easy to create the pattern!

This is the first time I have tried a tribal print mani, I like it, I think that if I had done the tribal print over all of my nails I think it would be a bit much, but as an accent nail I think it works really well! :D

31DC2014 Day 15 Delicate Print Nails

Sugar Sugar from sinful colors With Bundle monster plate BM-406

Sugar Sugar With BM-406

Hi Everyone :) Here are my delicate print nails for day 15!

I decided to use one of my untried Sinful Colors polishes today, This one is called Sugar Sugar, it’s an amazing intense shade of red with a smattering of red glitter, and a slight golden shimmer.  I don’t often really like red polish, But this one is definitely an exception!

The stamp is BM-405 from the Bundle Monster CYO set. I had a little problem with the BM plate, My nails are too long oO in particular my thumb nails… There was about 4mm of gap! And the gap was around 2/3mm on my other nails, But not to be deterred I had a cunning plan to continue the pattern with My Barry M Nail art pen, I think it worked! :D

There was some shrinking and cracking from my topcoat… After my really careful drawing of the unstamped bit of nail, I’m just going to pretend I can’t see it!

Other than my wobbly freehand skills I really like how this looks, I think next time I might try silver stamped over black or grey! :D

31DC2014 – Day 14 Flowers

Pink Roses

My flowery nails for day 14! For a change I decided to stamp with white polish!

I started with a coat of China Glaze White On White, then I used the cling film technique to apply

  • Maybelline – Lilac Charm
  • Sally Hansen – Lavender Envy
  • China Glaze – Get Outta My Space
  • Sally Hansen – Good To Grape
  • Minnie Mouse – Pink

I ended up with really pretty pale pinky/purple sparkly nails that looked like marble!

For the stamping I used some more White On White with Pro collection 07 XL from Moyou.

31DC2014 – Day 13 Animal Print

A little bit late, but here are my animal print nails for day 13!

Zebra Print Nails!

I have to say that this looks much better in real life! My nails look very washed out in these pictures.

I started with A couple of coats of Shabby Drab from Color Club, Purple toned grey polishes make me very happy! and this one is no exception! :D

The stamping plate is Pro Collection XL 04 from Moyou. I used some more Shabby Drab along with a couple of drops of Artemis from 2True for the stamped images, It was quite difficult to see what I was doing with the gradient, the 2True polish sunk under the Color Club so I couldn’t tell how much purple I had picked up!

I’m definitely going to try this again, probably with a leopard print, or snake print… Thinking about it I don’t think I have ever used my snakey stamps… I really have to do something about that! :D

Day 12 Striped Nails! I decided on another simple mani for this one :)

Black and Green Striped Nails Filthy Gorgeous Twilight Color Club Kissy

Stripy Nails

I started out with two coats of Kissy from Sinful Colors, Kissy is a really pretty teal jelly with loads of gold iridescent glitter.

When the teal polish was dry, one nail at a time I stuck on the striping tape and added a coat of Twilight from Filthy Gorgeous, then removed the tape with tweezers while the black polish was still wet.

Then I added a coat of Seche Vite, when it was dry I started on the next nail!
