Todays nails are actually the ones I created for last weeks pick and mix challenge, I just didn’t have time to post them, so here they are now 🙂
I used a base of China Glaze Galactic Grey, Over the top I stamped an image from Messy Mansion plate MM16 using Konad SP black Than a coat of Seche Vite and a quick clean up and it was finished!
It took 20 minutes including drying times! 🙂
The pick and mix prompt I have chosen for today is Camouflage!
I haven’t tried Camo nails before and I actually really like them! It’s a very easy technique so I’m definitely going to be doing this again 🙂
As it’s winter (not that it’s snowing here) I decided on using Arctic Camouflage colours!
Glittery Camo Nails
The polished I used are
- Barielle – Out-Grey-Geous
- Sally Hansen – Midnight In NY
- China Glaze – Pelican Grey
- China Glaze – Galactic Grey
- ILNP – My Private Rainbow
- Seche Vite – Topcoat
I started out with two coats of Out-Grey-Geous, when It was dry I applied Pelican Grey in squiggly lines and splodges with a thin brush, when the pale grey was completely dry I did the same with Galactic Grey, but overlapping the colours slightly. When I had applied the Midnight In NY I thought it wasn’t quite sparkly enough so I added a tiny bit of My Private Rainbow over the black.
It really was, bumpy and uneven by the time I had finished, so I added two layers of topcoat!
Grey, Black and Silver Camouflage Nails
Today I have some very Anti Valentine’s day nails to show you!
Anti Valentines Day Nails
I don’t think I could have made this any less valentine’sy!
I started out with two coats of Pumice From Sally Hansen, then using a make up sponge I applied patches of Pure Midnight which is also a Sally Hansen Polish.
Then I used a combination of cling film and tiny bits of sponge to add Barry M Grey, China Glaze Galactic Grey and Color Club Shabby Drab to create the stone effect.
Anti Valentines Nail Art
I used two Bundle Monster Plates BM-426 and BM-413 for the stamping, I used Konad Special Polish in Black, then with a thin brush I added some Lumin-iceant from Color Club to the letters.
I also used Lumin-iceant for the stamping on my thumb, unfortunately it doesn’t show as well as I would like 😦
Anti Valentines day Nail Art
I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite, but then decided it would look better in matte so I added a coat of Matte Finisher from E.L.F!
I think that’s enough hate nails from me! And I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s day what ever you are doing! 🙂
