Hey everyone! 🙂
I have to admit that I’m feeling so incredibly un-festive, I have been trying to create christmasy nails but it’s just not working…
I think I’m going to stick with winter nails for now 🙂
This is a base of Snow Me White from Sinful Colors, with a coat of China Glaze Make A Spectacle.
The tape decided that it didn’t want to play nice, it kept curling up at the edges, and generally not sticking to the polish, in hindsight I should have added a layer of topcoat over the glitter…
Then I added a coat of Camelot from A England and removed the tape, then added my topcoat to smooth it all.
Yay for non christmasy candy cane! 😀
Hey Everyone! 🙂
I have finally caught up with the 52 Week Pick and Mix Challenge! Yay! 😀
This week the prompt is Mermaid and the colours are Lilac and Green.
For my Mermaid nails I used
- Sinful Colors – Snow Me White
- Sally Hansen – Moonstone (Lustre Shine)
- China Glaze – Make A Spectacle
- Sally Hansen – Orchid Express (Insta-Dry)
- Maybelline – Flash Cosmic
- Sally Hansen – Blue Streak (Insta-Dry)
- Messy Mansion – MM21
- Konad Special Polish Black
- Seche Vite
I decided to try out a new (to me) technique for this mani. The technique is called Smoosh Attack (amazing name!) and you can find a pictorial tutorial right here Smoosh Attack.
Over a coat of Snow Me White I Smooshed a mixture of Blue Streak, Orchid Express, Moonstone and a a little bit more white polish.
When it was dry I added the glitter polishes Make a Spectacle and Flash Cosmic.
Then I applied a coat of Seche Vite to smooth out the glitter.
Messy Mansion MM21
I used Stamping Plate MM21 From Messy Mansion, I was going for an angled gradient with the scales, but that turned out to be a lot more tricky than I was expecting. But this looks much better than how I pictured when I was planning it. 😀
For the stamping I used Konad Special Polish in Black and Moonstone.
Then I added a final coat of Seche Vite.
Happy Glitter Skulls
These little skulls definitely look happy or at least very pleased with themselves! 🙂
I started out with a white base for this I used Ivory Skull from Sally Hansen, then I added a couple of coats of Make a Spectacle from China Glaze. This polish has to be one of my favorite iridescent glitters, it’s made up of medium small and micro glitter in a clear base. So pretty! 🙂
I stamped with Konad Special Polish in Black using the skull image from Messy Mansion MM22. and you can find that right here! Messy Mansion MM22
