GOT Polish – Purple

Hi! 🙂

Purple Stripe Textured Nail Art

Purple Stripe Textured Nail Art

It’s Thursday so its GOT Polish Time again! The prompt for today is purple! Seeing as they where already on top of my polish pile I used a couple more of the Sally Hansen Nail Prisms, Burgundy Orchid And Ruby Sapphire.

Look at that colour shift!

I started out with a couple of coats of Ruby Sapphire, Then when it was dry I added the tape, then a thick coat of Black Magic from Revlon then while it was still wet I carefully applied a thick coat of Burgundy Orchid, and very VERY carefully removed the tape.

I did this one nail at a time, I think trying to do them all at once would be a world of sticky tape and polish horror…

I’m having to use a hand cream that I don’t really like since I ran out of my beloved Body Shop hemp hand protector… ugh this stuff is so slimy, and bits of fluff keep sticking to me :/

Anyway I didn’t add any topcoat so the ribbed (for her pleasure *giggles*) texture would be more apparent!

the tape took ages!

I think this is a really fun mani, but it took ages, definitely not something to do if your pressed for time 🙂

Seeing as this is a got polish challenge mani here’s the link to the pinterest page so have a look at all the other wonderful purple nails 🙂

Here’s my Inspired by a book mani, I may be cheating a bit by using imagery from the cover, But I honestly couldn’t have come up with anything better than this! lol

Frankenstein - Mary Shelly

Frankenstein – Mary Shelly

  • Nails Inc – Leather Effect Noho

  • Chanel – Dragon
  • E.L.F – Matte Finisher
  • Barry M – Silver Nail Art Pen

This is the first time I have used one of the Leather effect polishes from Nails Inc, I really like the subtle texture of this polish but I found the formula to be quite thick and it took ages to dry.

The red polish is Dragon from Chanel, this polish seems to have turned into my go to red!

For the castle I used a thin brush it paint the image over two coats of black Magic from Revlon, then I added the little windows with the Barry M Silver Nail Art Pen. when it was dry I added the E.L.F matte topcoat.

For the lightning and the stitches I used the silver nail art pen, I didn’t add any topcoat so I wouldn’t cover the texture of the leather polish.

31DC2014 – Half Moon Nails

31DC2014 Half Moon Nail Art

Half Moon Nails

Here are my half moon nails for day 18!

For this I used

  • Black Magic from Revlon
  • Aglaia from 2True
  • Konad SP in Black
  • Pure Midnight From Sally Hansen
  • Seche Vite

Starting with a couple of coats of black magic, I stamped the bottom half of my nail, with Agiaia, I used Moyou Pro plate 05 which is a standard size plate from them, it’s way too narrow and short for me to use as a full nail, but it’s fine to use sideways for half a nail lol!

Then I applied a thin coat of Seche Vite, when that was dry I used ring binder hole reinforcements to mask off the half moons, then sponged on some more Black Magic and removed the sticky rings.

Then for the tips of my nails I sponged on more Aglaia and some Pure midnight, I was going for a gradient but it didn’t really work very well :/

Then I applied another coat of Seche, waited for it to dry then stamped using the same image, but with Konad SP Black and then a final coat of SV.

With all of the topcoat I used for this I’m honestly surprised that it didn’t shrink a lot more!

Starting out with a base of white on white, I built up the gradient with Black Magic, Pure Midnight and White on White   on the makeup sponge, it took three coats, then I applied a coat of confettis and some topcoat.

Then using a bit more topcoat as glue I stuck the nail studs on!

Stamped metallic gradient

Here are my metallic nails for day 8!

For this I used Dazzle from Orly, Black Magic from Revlon and Konad SP black.

I started with a couple of coats of Dazzle, then I created the gradient using Black Magic and a make up sponge.

The using some more Dazzle and konad SP in black I stamped the image over the gradient!

I finished it off with a coat of color club topcoat!

Microbes or Plankton? 2True Artimis Over Black

A little while ago I heard on the nail polish grapevine that 2True Pro Metallica collection are good for stamping, I have never really liked the 2True polishes but as they are on offer (half price in Superdrug) I thought I would give one a try!

And OMG it’s AMAZING!!!

2True Artemis over Black

2True Artemis over Black

This polish is called Artemis, I picked out this one because it’s purple! And if it turned out to be rubbish I would at least have a chrome polish in a colour I like.

But for stamping this polish is incredible, it holds it’s colour really well over black, unlike some other polishes that loose their colour intensity and turn silvery grey.

2True Artemis Messy Mansion Plate MM25

Messy Mansion Plate MM25

I decided that the image to test this polish out with should be very intricate and detailed.  The image is from Messy Mansion plate MM25. I have to say I’m not sure if it’s microbes or plankton lol. The only other polish I have had any luck with on this image is Konad SP in Black. The 2True polish worked so surprisingly well!

I found that this polish is a bit on the stinky side and I did notice there was a bit of staining while I was cleaning up my cuticles, but as I will only be using it as a stamping polish, it’s not too much of an issue 🙂

The image transferred to my nail so perfectly I hardly had to clean my stamper between doing each of my nails!  and there was no dragging when I applied my topcoat!

I’m now going to go buy the rest of this collection! Hopefully they will be just as good! 😀
