Camouflage Nails

Hello! 🙂

Camouflage Nails

Camouflage Nails

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!

O.P.I Solitaire (and some random studs I found in my nail art box)

Hi!

I decided earlier this week that I really have to start going though my pile of untried polishes, as I have far to many!

OPI Solitaire

So here is Solitaire from OPI! This is a pearly white textured polish with silver glitter, I think it looks a bit like snow!

I didn’t use any glue for applying the studs, I just used an orange stick to press them into the wet polish! This won’t last as long as using glue or using a strong top coat to attach them but it seems to work quite well.

There are two things about this polish that I wouldn’t usually like, it’s white and it’s textured, this is why it’s been in my untried pile for so long lol

Now it’s on my nails I think it looks rather festive! 🙂

Lava and Twilight

For this I used two coats of Sally Hansen Lava from the Lustre Shine collection, Filthy Gorgeous Twilight, quite a lot of striping tape and some french tip guides (I used the pointy shaped ones rather than the round ones!)

so sparkly!

Even though this took a quite a while, the striping tape was not cooperating, I really like this look, and I’ll definitely have to try this with different colours! 😀

I wanted something bright, cheerful and non hallowe’en (I must be ill lol).

Happy Skulls!

Hello! 🙂

Happy Glitter Skulls

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

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.
