Tomb!

Hello ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve almost caught up with the 52 week pick and mix challenge! Yay! ๐Ÿ˜€

Gravestone Nails

Gravestone Nails

From last weeks two prompts I chose to use just the Non US brand of polish.

This is Tomb. Tomb is part of the 2014 Halloween collection from the lovely UK indie brand Tara’s Talons

Tomb

Tomb

Tomb is a Grey Jelly base with loads of mixed pink and purple glitters along with holographic micro glitter!

I absolutely love this polish! It’s all of my favorite polish colours in one bottle! ๐Ÿ˜€ Look at that holo sparkle! Oh and It looks so squishy!

Moyou Gothic Collection 04

I couldn’t resist doing a little stamping over this, with a name like Tomb it needed some gravestones!

The image is from Moyou Gothic Collection 04 and for some reason the stamping was not working ๐Ÿ˜ฆ this was the third try, and I’d had enough so I just tried to tidy it up a bit with my Barry M Nail Art Pen…

couldn't resist adding the gravestones.

At least they look like gravestones now rather than a dreadful mess lol! ๐Ÿ™‚

Camouflage Nails

Hello! ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

Nouveau, Strap On Your Moon Boots And Voodoo You Do.

I started out with a couple of coats ofย  Voodoo You Do, a dark metallic grey from Color Club. then using Nouveau from Seche, Strap On Your Moon Boots from China Glaze, and some more Voodoo You Do along with a large dotting tool to create the overlapping clouds!

This really is incredibly easy, just have to remember to let the dotty clouds dry before adding the next layer ๐Ÿ™‚

Pick and Mix – Grey and Purple

Hello!

Grey and purple water spot manicure

Grey and purple water spot

Sorry about the lack of posts this week, I have had really horrible back ache :/ it means I can’t sit for very long, or lie down or stand for that matter… So doing nail art and writing blog posts haven’t really been happening ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Luckily it’s not feeling quite so horrible today so here are my Pick and Mix Challenge nails for this week! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sinful Colors Amethyst and Seche Nouveau

Sinful Colors Amethyst and Seche Nouveau

I decided on a water spot mani because, I haven’t done one for a while and the other things I tried for this looked rubbish! :/

The purple is Amethyst from Sinful Colors, and the Grey I used for the spotting is Nouveau from Seche.

My one issue with this is how bubbly my topcoat is! Gah! It might be a reaction with the perfume or with the polish itself…

Spotty Nails!

I really should stop using my expensive perfume for water spot manis… But my fingers really do smell lovely lol!




Teal Gradient

Hi!

This week is the beginning of the 52 week pick and mix challenge! (I would have posted this earlier but I have been away)

THE RULES
Each week, there are 2 prompts. It is your choice whether to do just one, both, or combine them.
The first option is a pattern – these are alphabetical.
The second option is a colour or a range of colours. As far as possible, these should be oldies or untried.

For the gradient I used Rise and Shine from Sinful Colors and Mind Your Mittens from Essie. This is the first time I have tried Mind Your Mittens, its been sitting in my polish box for ages and for some reason I just keep overlooking it, it really is a lovely dark grey/blue!
