Hello! 🙂

blue white and silver flowers

For todays pick and mix challenge I have used both prompts! Pale Blue and Flowers! 😀

blue white and silver flowers

medium size dotting tool

For this look I used

  • Azure – Rimmel London
  • Tea Bird – Filthy Gorgeous
  • Snow Me White – Sinful Colors
  • Oyster Bar – Sally Hansen, Triple Shine
  • Matte Finisher – E.L.F
  • Seche Vite
  • Medium Dotting Tool
  • Fine Nail Art Brush

Over the two coats of azure, I applied Snow Me White to the tips of my nails, then I used Oyster Bar to cover the edge (I didn’t use any tip guides so the lines where a bit wobbly).

For the flowers I used a medium sized dotting tool with some more Azure and Snow Me white, then a little dot of Tea Bird in the center.

I then finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite, then when that had dried a coat of Matte Finisher.

FIRE!!!!

Today I have another mani for the pick and mix challenge! This weeks prompts are fire and three shades of green or yellow, and as I’m really not in a green/yellow mood, it had to be purple! 😀

Messy Mansion MM27

For this I used Sally Hansen HD in Cyber, I’d Melt For You from China Glaze (only because it was on my desk and I didn’t feel like hunting through my collection to find another good silver for stamping) and Konad Special polish in Black.

The stamping plate is MM27 from Messy Mansion, you can find that here, Messy Mansion MM27

There was even a tiny bit of actual sunshine, in between the rain and hail. Yay! 😀

shades of pink purple and silver

I’m surprised that with using just these two polishes, there are so many shades of pink and purple in this mani!

I think I’m going to have to do some watermarble experimenting with dark colours! 😀

For this I used China Glaze I’d Melt For You and Morgan Taylor New Year New Blue I picked up both of these from my local Sallys. They where reduced… How could I refuse? lol

I applied two coats of New Year New Blue, this is the first Morgan Taylor polish I have tried, and I love it! the brush, the polish formula and the drying time are all perfect!

I’d Melt For You looks like it will be an amazing stamper, it dries really quickly too!
