Blue!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Nouveau, Strap On Your Moon Boots And Voodoo You Do.

I started out with a couple of coats ofย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

The polishes I used are

  • Barry M – Black
  • Seventeen – moonstruck
  • Zoya – Kotori

This is a very quick and easy mani! ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

GOT Polish Challenge – Over a White Base!

Hello! ๐Ÿ™‚

GOT Polish Challenge Over a White Base

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 :/

got-polish-part-2

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.

Propaganda is getting to be a vhtf polish ๐Ÿ˜ฆ 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.

31DC2014 Day 21 Inspired By A Colour – Blue

inspired by not seeing any blue sky for a while

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!

blue!

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!

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this I started with two coats of Air-kiss from Filthy Gorgeous which is a lovely mid blue cream.

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)ย  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! ๐Ÿ˜€
