Hello!

Candy Corn Halloween Nail Art

Candy Corn

Today I have candy corn inspired nails!

For this mani I used

  • Ivory Skull – Sally Hansen
  • Sunny Days – Rimmel
  • Liquid Vinyl – Orly
  • Black Nail Art Pen – Barry M
  • Hot Chilli Pepper – Rimmel
  • Out The Door Topcoat
  • Nail Tape
  • Make Up Sponge

After my first coat of white polish had dried I used Hot Chilli Pepper, Sunny Days and Ivory Skull to create the gradient, it too ages! It took four layers of sponging to get the colours blended nicely.

The orange polish has a lot more pigment than the yellow so I found (out the hard way, this is my second attempt at this gradient the first was a tragic failure,) that only adding around quarter of the amount of orange polish to the sponge was the only way to stop it from spreading too much.

After my gradient had dried I added a coat of Out The Door… I have to admit I’m starting to miss Seche Vite, but that’s something for another post! When that had dried I used striping tape to create the triangular candy corn shape then carefully painted on a couple of coats of Liquid Vinyl and removed the tape!

I used my trusty Barry M nail art pen to curve the tips of the triangles, then finished it with another layer of top coat.

This mani also covers one of this weeks prompts for the pick and mix challenge! Which is a three colour gradient, I’ll have to see if I have time to do the other prompt later on this week 🙂




31DC2014 – Day 31 Re-create Your Favourite Challenge

Hello everyone! 🙂

This is my last 31DC2014 post! And how could I not do a celebratory 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. 😀

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! 😀


Pink Spotty Nails!

While I was going through my nail art box I found my dotting tools and realized that I haven’t used them for ages, so today I have pink spotty nails to show you! 🙂

I started with two coats of Hot Like Lava from Color Club, it’s such a bright metallic pink! The weather it horrid today all grey and raining so I wanted something bright 🙂

Hot like Lava applied really smoothly and it dries really quickly, the only problem I found with it is the visible brush strokes but the dots cover those 🙂

I used a medium sized dotting tool and Liquid Vinyl from Orly, I used this one because it takes a bit longer to dry than my other black polishes so I had a bit longer to play before it went all thick and stringy!

Unfortunately this really suffered from the dreaded Seche Vite shrinkage :/ but it’s cute and spotty so I don’t mind too much!


Black And Silver Water Marble

This is my first ever (just about) successful water marble! 😀 It’s taken me ages just to get this technique to actually work! *does happy dance*

It’s far from perfect, there are loads of bubbles and I missed a big bit on my thumb :/ also the clean up was an absolute nightmare! Even with taping up my fingers, the silver polish is lovely but the sparkles are really sticky!

I started off with a base of Pumice from Sally Hansen, I created the water marble in a paper cup with two polishes from Orly, Liquid Vinyl which is a glossy black creme and Dazzle which is the sparkly silver metallic.

I found it worked best when the water was slightly cooler than skin temperature rather than at room temperature, I was in my kitchen and it tends to be a bit cold in there!

I am so happy that I have finally managed to do a water marble! 😀
