GOT Polish Challenge – Yellow (Or My Fried Egg Nails)

Got Polish Challenge Yellow nail Art

Fried egg nails

Here are my yellow nails for the GOT Polish Challenge! I really don’t like yellow nail polish so this was actually quite difficult for me to come up with anything interesting, I was just staring at the bottles of polish waiting for some kind of inspiration.

I only have 3 bottles of yellow nail polish and one of those is new, so my yellow choices where rather limited, eventually I chose this!

Bizzybee

This is a polish I have had for a while, it came free with some cleaning stuff oO (I’m not going to start on gender stereotyping… But Yay for free nail polish lol)

Fried eggs

I don’t like fried eggs, and I don’t like yellow nail polish so it’s a match made in heaven (or hell depending on how you look at it)

I applied two coats of not marigold yellow then added the egg whites with China Glaze White on White and a large dotting tool, then for the yokes, some more Not Marigold and a medium sized dotting tool!

Sparkly Blue Water Marble!

I actually had some time to do some nail art! Yay! 😀 So here is a very sparkly water marble!

The polishes I used are

  • White on White – China Glaze
  • Tempest – China Glaze
  • Thinking Of Blue – Sally Hansen
  • Dive Deeper – Sally Hansen
  • Sparkling Silver – No7
  • Topcoat – Color Club

I started with a coat of White on White, when that was dry I taped my fingers and started on the water marble. I started with two drops of Thinking of Blue, Tempest then Dive Deeper, followed by two rounds of one drop of each polish in the same order (if that makes any sense)

I created the petal pattern by dragging the polish out from the center with a tooth pick, and then back from the outside to the center between the petals.

After I dipped my nails, waited a bit for them to dry and cleaned round my cuticles I added a coat of Sparkling silver then I finished it off with my top coat!

I really do like how my middle finger turned out! 😀


GOT Polish Challenge – Ruffles

Woohoo! I actually managed to get this post done in time! 😀 So here are my ruffle nails for the GOT Polish Challenge!

Here is a quick recap of the rules:

  • The polish you use should be at least one year old.
  • If you haven’t been a polishaholic that long, you can use the oldest polishes you have.
  • The polish should be previously used, but if you’re stuck, you could free a yearling from Mount Untried.
  • You can use more than one polish as long as it fits the theme and the rules.

For my ruffled nails I used Azure from Rimmel (untried as far as I can remember) and White On White from China Glaze (which I have had for ages)

Blue Ruffle Nail Art

Blue Ruffles

This was my second attempt at a ruffle mani, the first time I tried this technique I ruffled my whole nail, and OMG it made my nails look so wide oO it was like my fingernails had been replaced with toenails D: I have wide nails anyway and I can’t stand anything that makes them look even wider!

So for my second try I decided on a french tip, I think this looks quite nice, like clouds or waves 🙂

To do a ruffle mani it is actually really quite simple, just slightly overlapping rows of dots. Just make sure the previous row of dots is dry! I used a medium sized dotting tool!

As my camera was being nice to me today here is a close up! 😀

Hallo again! 🙂 Here are my Purple nails for this weeks GOT Polish Challenge 🙂 Sorry about the lack of posts last week I have had a really crazy week! I’ll tell you about it in my my post tomorrow 🙂

Purple Zebra Gradient

Purple Zebra Gradient

For my purple nails I started with a coat of White on White from China Glaze, then I used Baptiste and Poke from Illamasqua and a little bit more White On White for the sponged gradient.

For the Zebra stripe stamp I used some more Baptiste and Moyou Pro plate 04XL.

Got Polish Challenge -Skittle! Matte Black and White.

For the GOT Polish Challenge this week I have this black and white matte skittle to show you 🙂

But first here’s a quick recap of the rules!

THE RULES

  • The polish you use should be at least one year old.
  • If you haven’t been a polishaholic that long, you can use the oldest polishes you have.
  • The polish should be previously used, but if you’re stuck, you could free a yearling from Mount Untried.
  • You can use more than one polish as long as it fits the theme and the rules.

I used three polishes for this, (four if you count the matte topcoat) White On White from China Glaze, Barry M Black and Konad SP in Black.

My camera decided that it hated these nails so there’s only one picture today :/

Black and White Matte Skittle

Black and White Matte Skittle

I started off by painting my thumb, index and ring fingers with two coats of the White polish, and my middle and little finger with two coats of the Black

Starting with my thumb, the stamp I chose is from plate MM09 from Messy Mansion, then I applied a coat of my usual topcoat and waited for it to dry.

I used a makeup sponge for the gradient on my index finger, it took two coats before I was happy with the amount of black.

My middle finger was easy, I just applied the white polish with a medium sized dotting tool.

The water marble on my ring finger was a bit of a pain, the black polish was a bit too thick to spread on the water, so I ended up using  a little dish to thin some of the polish with a little acetone, I used a striping brush to add drops of it to the water. I’m really happy with how it turned out! all those different shades of grey!  My water marble was going so well, until an annoying little bubble that I didn’t notice before I added my topcoat and I ended up dragging some polish across the design. Grr!

I changed my mind on what I was going to do on my little finger. Originally I was going to do something with striping tape but after doing all my other nails I really didn’t feel like doing anything complicated so I just taped over the end of my nail and applied white over the black, I should probably have just removed the black polish and started again but for some reason, I didn’t think of it at the time lol. It took three coats to cover the black, and the edge is a bit fuzzy. but I think it turned out ok! 🙂

Then I decided that it needed some nail studs so I stuck them on with some more topcoat, when it was dry I applied a coat of Matte. And it was all finished!

Crumpet’s Got Polish Challenge – Valentines Day

Here are my Valentines day nails for todays got polish challenge! I have to say I’m really not into the whole Valentines day thing, I find it all far to commercialized and a bit cheap… But enough of me grumbling lol!

GOT Polish - Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day Nail Art

I started out by making the little stamped decals using Bundle monster BM-401, for the stamping I used Konad special polish in black.  Then color club ulterior motive for half of the hearts and Maybelline Flash Cosmic with a coat of Barry m shocking pink over the top for the rest.

GOT Polish - Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day nail art

While I was waiting for my decals to dry I used Sinful Colors Bubbly and Barry m shocking pink to create a sponged gradient, Bubbly is a polish from my unused pile along with the Maybelline glitter polish. Then I stamped with China Glaze Cosmic Dust using Moyou Pro Collection XL plate 04 for the leopard print.  I used topcoat to stick on the decals, and added a few dots of Ulterior motive. then another layer of top coat to even it all out!
