I hope you are having a lovely start to 2015!
Three Shades Of Purple
Here is my three shades of purple nails for the pick and mix challenge this week.
All The Striping Tape
The three purple polishes I used are
- Chanel – Vendetta
- Barielle – Grape Escape
- China Glaze – Get Outta My Space
I also used striping tape and Seche Vite topcoat.
I seem to always be surprised that using striping tape always takes so long lol.
I have been making stamped decals again! 😀 this time I used images from two of my Moyou plates, 01 and 02 from the Suki Collection.
The polishes I used!
- Barielle Shades – Grape Escape
- Color Club – Ulterior Motive
- Revlon – Sweet Revenge (the pink one from the duo)
- Barry M – Shocking Pink
- Sally Hansen – Ivory Skull
- Revlon – Calla Lily
- Konad Special Polish – Black
- Color Club – Topcoat
Pink and Purple Cherry Blossom
I started off by making the flowers, you can find how I made them here.
I used Grape Escape and sponged on a little Ulterior Motive on the tips as the base colour, when that was dry I applied the flowers using the Color Club Topcoat like glue! 😀
When that was all dry, I applied a couple more coats of topcoat to seal all of my decals in! In some places on my nails there must be at least 6 layers of polish, it feels really thick like Gel! It took ages to dry, about half an hour
I really liked making the cherry blossom decals, even tho the tiny flowers where a bit fiddly to paint! The time it took to get them all on my nails was rather a lot longer than I would have liked, then getting them to stick was a pain! I think that it’s because I made them to thick, but I’m going to have to try out some other clear polishes to find the best one for decal making! 😀
This is still quite a new technique to me, practice makes perfect and all that! 😀
Has it really been over a week since my last post? Ooops! I guess I was so wrapped up in Christmas and other stuff that I didn’t even notice!
Anyway I hope your Christmas has been wonderful and filled with shiny things!
For this I started with two coats of Barielle Shades Grape Escape, which is a lovely purple creme followed by two coats of Orly Can’t Be Tamed, Large purple hex and smaller silver hex glitter in a clear base. It’s a really pretty polish but I found that it needed a lot of dabbing to get an even coat of the glitter.
This ended up as a stamped skittle mani because I just couldn’t decide on what I wanted to do!
I used Bundle Monster CYO set, BM-408 for my Thumb, BM-412 on my Middle Finger, BM-411 for the index finger (mutters about the image not being straight) and BM-423 for my ring and pinky fingers! and finished it off with a thick coat of Seche Vite.
