Here are my stormy nails for this weeks pick and mix challenge! I chose the three dark colours from this weeks two prompts.
Nouveau, Strap On Your Moon Boots And Voodoo You Do.
I started out with a couple of coats of 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 🙂
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 😦
Luckily it’s not feeling quite so horrible today so here are my Pick and Mix Challenge nails for this week! 🙂
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…
I really should stop using my expensive perfume for water spot manis… But my fingers really do smell lovely lol!
Here are my nails for day 29! Inspired by the supernatural. Or maybe things that go bump in the night!
The polishes I used are
- Seche – Nouveau
- Chanel – Dragon
- Sally Hansen – Ion
- Butter London – Frilly Knickers
- Filthy Gorgeous – Twilight
- Konad – SP Black
- Sally Hansen – Greige Gardens
I also used stamping plates HD01 for the tree, HD03 for the gravestones and HD04 for the spider web.
I started out with a sponged gradient of Greige Gardens and Ion, then with a tiny bit of sponge I added a small amount of Nouveau from Seche around the bottom edge of my nail.
When that was all dry I applied a coat of frilly knickers then a coat of Seche Vite.
After adding the stamps I used a thin brush to paint on the grass and added another coat of Seche Vite
For the spooky eyes I used my trusty dotting tools, along with Dragon for the red (it was the first bottle of red polish I found lol) and then with a tiny dotting tool some more Twilight.
Doing this really made me feel a lot better about having to cut my nails. 🙂
