Night Watch, Scarab and Noble
Here are my three shades of blue nails for this weeks Pick and Mix challenge!
the Polishes I used are Noble from Illamasqua, this is the light blue cream and it’s been in my untried pile for far too long! Scarab is the blue shimmer, and it’s a Sally Hansen Lustre Shine. Night Watch is also from Sally Hansen and that’s the dark blue!
Yay! Water Marble!
I decided to go with chucking the polish into the cup and giving it a mix, rather than going with a pattern 🙂

Here are my stormy nails for this weeks pick and mix challenge! I chose the three dark colours from this weeks two prompts.
Nouveau, Strap On Your Moon Boots And Voodoo You Do.
I started out with a couple of coats of Voodoo You Do, a dark metallic grey from Color Club. then using Nouveau from Seche, Strap On Your Moon Boots from China Glaze, and some more Voodoo You Do along with a large dotting tool to create the overlapping clouds!
This really is incredibly easy, just have to remember to let the dotty clouds dry before adding the next layer 🙂

Today I have some more Halloween nails to show you! 😀
Messy Mansion MM11
The polishes I used are
- Barry M – Black
- Seventeen – moonstruck
- Zoya – Kotori
This is a very quick and easy mani! 🙂
After painting my nails with the black Barry M polish, I stamped the Coffin image from MM11 with Moonstruck then using a very thin brush I filled in the coffins with Kotori. Then added a coat of Seche Vite.

Including the cleanup this took less than 15 minutes! 😀

GOT Polish Challenge Over a White Base
It seems like ages since I last posted nail art for the GOT Polish Challenge! But that’s probably because it has been ages
For today’s prompt I chose a very simple stamped design, I used White on White from China Glaze… I think my bottle is now more polish thinner than actual polish… It’s probably time to retire it and get a new one!
I used Propaganda from Illamasqua to stamp the image, and the stamping plate is 07 from Moyou’s Suki collection.
Illamasqua Propaganda Over White on White China Glaze
Propaganda is getting to be a vhtf polish 😦 I have only found a couple of other dark blue jelly polishes with a similar colour intensity these are Blue-Topia from Color Club and L’orial Midnight Mistress.
Moyou Suki 07
I think this looks like Willow pattern from ceramic plates lol!

inspired by not seeing any blue sky for a while
Inspired by a colour…
For this I chose a colour I haven’t seen for a while, Sky blue! It has been really wet and cloudy where I live, not very spring like at all!
My first choice for this was going to be purple, I put all of my purple polishes onto my desk (I have a lot more of them than I thought!) and I looked at them, and nothing! not a drop of inspiration! Went and had a cup of tea, glared at the pile of purple polish from the sofa, I’m usually ok at choosing a polish and working what it will look nice with or what kind of pattern it would suit, but clearly not today!
I decided to have a break and pottered off to do some gardening, while I was grubbing about in a pot of lilies, I was thinking how nice it would be to have some blue sky!
For my sky blue nails I used
- 17 – Heart Beat
- Barry M – Blueberry Ice Cream
- Sinful Colors – Paradise
- China Glaze – White on White
- Konad SP – Black
- Messy Mansion – MM14
- Seche Vite
This really was very easy, I used the three pale blues for the very subtle gradient, the clouds I used a large dotting tool, and then stamped the birds over the top!
Sky blue nails
It’s not purple but I really like it! 🙂

After having a quick hunt about on the interwebs for blue nails trying to get some inspiration I came across loads of pictures of Turquoise gem stone nails, and this is my attempt at them! 🙂
For this I started with two coats of Air-kiss from Filthy Gorgeous which is a lovely mid blue cream.
Turquoise Water Spotted Nails
Then when it was dry I used cling film (saran wrap) to apply Catwalk Couture from Seventeen which is a slightly paler blue cream polish, along with a couple of drops each of Golden from Revlon and Antiquated from Color Club, and a tiny bit of Blue-Topia a dark blue jelly also from Color Club I put them all onto a plate and swirled the polishes around a little then gently dabbed the mixture onto my nails.
Then using Twilight from Filthy Gorgeous (which is also a really good black for water marbling) I used the water spotting technique to apply the black, and I should probably stop using my expensive perfume to do water spotting, but my nails smell lovely after lol!
Then I used Color Club Topcoat, and unfortunately ended up with a little bit of dragging on my thumb
I’m definitely going to be doing this again, hopefully when I can keep my nail art on for longer than 24 hours! 😀
