GOT Polish Challenge – Over a White Base!

Hello! πŸ™‚

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 😦 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.

Purple Water Marble

For this I used

  • China Glaze – White on White
  • Orly – Liquid Vinyl
  • Sally Hansen – Good To Grape
  • China Glaze – Bizarre Blurple

I have been a bit lazy with choosing the polishes for this and just grabbed the closest few on my desk. πŸ˜€

I may have forgotten to use tape on my fingers, so the clean up for this took ages! Ugh, and I’m a little bit annoyed about not getting my little finger nail lined up as well as the others.

I really like this colour combination especially the blue iridescent flash from Bizarre Blurple.

So, there it is the 31DC challenge all done, eventually… It only took me a couple of months longer than it should have… Ooops! πŸ˜€

Hello! πŸ˜€

This is my inspired by a tutorial post for day 30, The tutorial I decided to follow is this rather amazing one that I have been meaning to try for ages.

The polishes I used are

  • China Glaze – White on White
  • Chanel – Vendetta
  • China Glaze – Get Outta My Space
  • Revlon – Amethyst
  • China Glaze – Bizarre Blurple
  • Sally Hansen – Good To Grape
Purple Nimbus Nails

Purple Nimbus Nails

I found that the Nimbus technique is really fun! And definitely something that I’m going to try again!

I started out with a couple of coats of white on white as the base, then starting with Vendetta which is the darkest polish I used a cotton bud soaked in acetone and polish to dot on the colour.

When each colour was dry I repeated the process (with a new cotton bud for each colour)

Then I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite!

I couldn’t resist doing a bit of stamping over this πŸ™‚

I used Plate MM07 from Messy Mansion, this is the first time I’ve used this plate and it’s really lovely! I used Konad SP Black then another coat of Seche Vite

31DC2014 Day 28 – Inspired By a Flag

Hello everyone!

For today’s inspired by a flag prompt I decided on the Japanese flag!

I started out with two coats of White On White from China Glaze as the base. Then using Dragon from Chanel and a thin brush I added the red!

The stamp is plate 02 from Moyou’s Suki collection.

This is the first time I have used my new marshmallow stamper, it’s such a different technique than using my usual firmer (but still squishy) one!

I think that with a bit more practice, (especially with the amount of polish on the stamping plate, and getting used to squashing my nail into the stamper rather than rolling it over my nail!)Β  it’s going to be my favorite! πŸ˜€

I really have missed blogging soo much! It’s so nice to have the time to get back to regular posting πŸ˜€

 


31dc2014 – Inspired By a Pattern

Hey everyone! πŸ™‚

Today I have two very different attempts at the inspired by a pattern prompt!

Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to photograph my blue gingham nailsΒ  as soon as I had finished them so they all chipped and looking scruffy, so sorry about that!

Blue gingham Nails

For these nails I started out with a base of white on white from china glaze, for the gingham pattern I used a thin brush and my blue franken polish creation, you can find another post about it right here.

The black polish is Emotions from O.P.I It’s one of the Liquid sand range.

After I had finished the blue pattern I realized that I absolutely hated it! It looks like those dreadful plastic tablecloths! Ugh!

 

Purple stripe nails

These where inspired by the pattern of my fluffy slipper socks lol!

I used two polishes for this, Poke from Illamasqua and Inkwell from Sinful Colors. I Have to say I’m much happier with this than the tablecloth nails! πŸ™‚

I started off with a coat of Poke, then when the first coat was dry I added alternating stripes of poke and inkwell, while the polish was still wet i used a pin to break up the edges of the stripes to give it a slightly fluffy look.

It was so easy! I added a coat of Seche Vite and it was all done! πŸ™‚

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!

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!

It’s not purple but I really like it! πŸ™‚
