GOT Polish Challenge – Pastel

GOT Polish Pastel

GOT Polish Pastel

Here are my Pastel nails for today’s GOT Polish Challenge!

GOT Polish Part 2

For this I decided to have a try at water spotted nails and it was surprisingly easy! ๐Ÿ˜€ The Polishes I used are Lathering Lilac which is another of the free ones (that I haven’t used) from Bizzybee and Pink Flamingo from Barry M

I started with two coats of Lathering Lilac, when that was dry I used Pink flamingo for the water spotting. I have to say it’s a really fun technique, loads easier than water marbling!

Then when that was dry I applied a coat of color club top coat, then a final coat of Matte Finisher from Elf

GOT Polish Challenge – Yellow (Or My Fried Egg Nails)

Got Polish Challenge Yellow nail Art

Fried egg nails

Here are my yellow nails for the GOT Polish Challenge! I really don’t like yellow nail polish so this was actually quite difficult for me to come up with anything interesting, I was just staring at the bottles of polish waiting for some kind of inspiration.

I only have 3 bottles of yellow nail polish and one of those is new, so my yellow choices where rather limited, eventually I chose this!

Bizzybee

This is a polish I have had for a while, it came free with some cleaning stuff oO (I’m not going to start on gender stereotyping… But Yay for free nail polish lol)

Fried eggs

I don’t like fried eggs, and I don’t like yellow nail polish so it’s a match made in heaven (or hell depending on how you look at it)

I applied two coats of not marigold yellow then added the egg whites with China Glaze White on White and a large dotting tool, then for the yokes, some more Not Marigold and a medium sized dotting tool!

GOT Polish Challenge – Ruffles

Woohoo! I actually managed to get this post done in time! ๐Ÿ˜€ So here are my ruffle nails for the GOT Polish Challenge!

Here is a quick recap of the rules:

  • The polish you use should be at least one year old.
  • If you havenโ€™t been a polishaholic that long, you can use the oldest polishes you have.
  • The polish should be previously used, but if youโ€™re stuck, you could free a yearling from Mount Untried.
  • You can use more than one polish as long as it fits the theme and the rules.

For my ruffled nails I used Azure from Rimmel (untried as far as I can remember) and White On White from China Glaze (which I have had for ages)

Blue Ruffle Nail Art

Blue Ruffles

This was my second attempt at a ruffle mani, the first time I tried this technique I ruffled my whole nail, and OMG it made my nails look so wide oO it was like my fingernails had been replaced with toenails D: I have wide nails anyway and I can’t stand anything that makes them look even wider!

So for my second try I decided on a french tip, I think this looks quite nice, like clouds or waves ๐Ÿ™‚

To do a ruffle mani it is actually really quite simple, just slightly overlapping rows of dots. Just make sure the previous row of dots is dry! I used a medium sized dotting tool!

As my camera was being nice to me today here is a close up! ๐Ÿ˜€

Purple Zebra Gradient

For my purple nails I started with a coat of White on White from China Glaze, then I used Baptiste and Poke from Illamasqua and a little bit more White On White for the sponged gradient.

For the Zebra stripe stamp I used some more Baptiste and Moyou Pro plate 04XL.

Look at that sneaky bit of glitter on my middle finger… Grrr! It must have hitched a ride on the sponge, I didn’t notice it until I was cropping the photos!

GOT Polish Challenge – Orange!

I don’t really like orange nail polish, so I don’t have that many (by not many I actually only own two and I got those recently)… so I used the most orangey colours I have that meet the rules for the GOT polish challenge!

GOT Polish Orange Water Marble

I used Roguish Red from China Glaze… it’s a very orangey red, it’s probably why I haven’t used it very much, it being to orange, it’s from the 2012 Halloween collection. The other polish I used is called East Austin and that’s from Color Club, it’s a light bright pinky orange, and it’s been sitting unused in my nail polish box for quite a while!

I tried out a lot of techniques with these polishes and none of them worked well, both of these polishes are rubbish for stamping, then I tried a gradient but the color club polish ate my sponge oO so that was a massive fail, and the polishes on their own aren’t orangey enough… I was about to give up on the challenge for this week.

I’m so glad that I decided to give water marbling another try! This is my second successful water marble ๐Ÿ™‚ and I’m so glad that it worked so well!

I may have forgotten to tape up my fingers… So the clean up was an absolute pain lol!

Crumpet’s Got Polish Challenge – Valentines Day

Here are my Valentines day nails for todays got polish challenge! I have to say I’m really not into the whole Valentines day thing, I find it all far to commercialized and a bit cheap… But enough of me grumbling lol!

GOT Polish - Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day Nail Art

I started out by making the little stamped decals using Bundle monster BM-401, for the stamping I used Konad special polish in black.ย  Then color club ulterior motive for half of the hearts and Maybelline Flash Cosmic with a coat of Barry m shocking pink over the top for the rest.

While I was waiting for my decals to dry I used Sinful Colors Bubbly and Barry m shocking pink to create a sponged gradient, Bubbly is a polish from my unused pile along with the Maybelline glitter polish. Then I stamped with China Glaze Cosmic Dust using Moyou Pro Collection XL plate 04 for the leopard print.ย  I used topcoat to stick on the decals, and added a few dots of Ulterior motive. then another layer of top coat to even it all out!
