Today I have this purple gradient to show you! This mani is from a few months ago, but I think it’s too pretty not to share 🙂
The image is from the Bridal Nail 05 stamping plate from Messy Mansion
The Bridal Nail images are not as wide as the MM (round plates) full nail designs these are 17mm x 23mm while the Bridal Nail Full Nail images are 14mm x 24mm. I found that they are a really nice size to work with!
In no particular order I used
- ILNP – My Private Rainbow
- Hit The Bottle – Black
- NYC – Evil
- Sally Hansen – Grape Race
- OPI – I Carol About You
- Bridal Nail Stamping Plate 05
- Seche Vite
I started with Grape Race over my usual topcoat then using Evil (I really dislike the name of this polish), I Carol About You and Grape Race, for the gradient. It only took a couple of layers and dried really quickly. Then a thin coat of My Private Rainbow and a layer of Seche Vite.
Then the stampy goodness using Hit The Bottle Black and BN05, another coat of Seche Vite, a bit of a clean up and it was all done!
I’ve almost caught up with the 52 week pick and mix challenge! Yay! 😀
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 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! 😀 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 😦 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! 🙂
ILNP My Little Glacier and China Glaze I’d Melt For You
My nails today where a bit of an experiment! I was really at a loss about what to do for my post today.
So I closed my eyes and grabbed the first two polishes from my polish pile! Then I did the same with my box of stamping plates!
The polishes are My Little Glacier (H) from ILNP and I’d Melt For You from China Glaze. I also used two of the tinted polishes I mixed a while ago, along with Konad special polish in black. The stamping plate is MM07 from Messy Mansion.
I started with a couple of coats of My Little Glacier, then using the center leaf pattern from plate MM07. Here’s the link to the plate Messy Mansion MM07
Then using I’s Melt for you I added the barbed wire and the roses. I used the dark purple and the dark blue tinted polishes to colour the roses here’s a link to the post if you want more information on how I mixed the Leadlight Polishes
Bonus close up! 🙂
Messy Mansion MM07
I think I’m going to have to try randomly picking polishes and stamping plates again some time!
Here’s my pick and mix mani for this week! I chose holographic from this weeks two prompts!
China Glaze Get Outta My Space and OPI Lincoln Park After Dark.
For this watermarble I used China Glaze Get Outta My Space and OPI Lincoln Park After Dark along with Barry M Black for the base colour.
In the sun
There was even a tiny bit of actual sunshine, in between the rain and hail. Yay! 😀
shades of pink purple and silver
I’m surprised that with using just these two polishes, there are so many shades of pink and purple in this mani!
I think I’m going to have to do some watermarble experimenting with dark colours! 😀
Todays nails are actually the ones I created for last weeks pick and mix challenge, I just didn’t have time to post them, so here they are now 🙂
I used a base of China Glaze Galactic Grey, Over the top I stamped an image from Messy Mansion plate MM16 using Konad SP black Than a coat of Seche Vite and a quick clean up and it was finished!
It took 20 minutes including drying times! 🙂
It’s been ages since my last post! Sorry about that!
Before I run out of time here is my Pick and Mix Mani for this week! This weeks prompts are Red, Gold and Chevron.
Taras Talons Zombie Blood and Revlon Golden
For this I used Zombie Blood from this years Halloween range from the lovely Taras Talons, It really is a glorious red jelly! The green holographic glitters are wonderful.
The gold polish is from Revlon and it’s called Golden.
very festive colours
I didn’t want to add to much gold to this mani, Zombie Blood Is so lovely I didn’t want to cover it up!
So much glitter! 😀
I applies three coats of the red polish then when it had dried I used striping tape to create the Chevrons and the triangle shapes and carefully added two coats of golden.
Lovely, lovely striping tape
This really is such a festive look!
