This week is the beginning of the 52 week pick and mix challenge! (I would have posted this earlier but I have been away)
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.
Teal Grey Gradient Scales
This challenge looks amazing! I love how relaxed it is 🙂
52 week pick and mix
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!
Teal And Grey
The stamp is from Messy Mansion stamping plate MM21 along with Konad special polish in black!

Green Splatter Nails
Here a are my green nails for day 4! I really couldn’t decide on which polishes to use, So I ended up using nearly all of them (well the green ones)
- Sinful Colors – Pistache
- Color Club – Artsy Crafty
- Barry M – Acid Yellow
- 2True Metallica – Arete
- Sinful Colors – Rise And Shine
- China Glaze – OMG a UFO
- Color Club – Perfect Mol-Ten
- Zoya – Logan
- Sally Hansen – Grass Slipper
I started with two coats of base coat (green stains my nails more than any other colour) then a coat of Pistache.
After that had dried, using a cotton bud (q tip) with the ends cut off I blew the green polishes onto my nails.
I alternated between light and dark shades to make sure there was a good mix of green!
All Of The Green!
This was really messy and took ages to clean up but it was a lot of fun! 😀
