Day Twenty-Seven: Inspired by a Movie

What movie to choose!!?!?!!?!!?

I'll admit this challenge took me a long time to decide what to do..

I have multiple favourite movies! 

So after many hours staring at the combine collection of MyLove's Blu-rays and my DVDs I decided on a feel-good movie that MyLove loves...

The Wizard of Oz
do you love that movie too?


I hope you can see the connection between this design and the movie...
if not...
My thumb is the yellow brick road..
My index finger is based on Dorothy's Dress...
My middle finger is the colour of the wicked witch of the west...
My ring finger is the same colour as the ruby red slippers...
and, my pinky is to represent the stripy socks of the witch...

Day Twenty-Six: Water Marbled

Now, I love nail polish, I love painting my nails, and I love trying out new designs...
but water marbling is just something I struggle with!

Today's challenge took me a while, and I decide to choose to do "feature" nails instead of marbling all my nails...

I'm pretty pleased with them... but I know I could do better with some practice...

what do you think?





Make sure to check out the other epic water marbling nails!

Day Twenty-Five: Christmas!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
The Internet doesn't really seem to care for Christmas... everything just keeps on going, online shops are still open, and facebook suddenly becomes the "this is a substitute Christmas card"
But for today (and this is pre-posted, that's right I'm not online on Christmas day) here are my nails...

Today's nails are...
Pretty Average Christmas Trees...

Day Twenty-Three: Inspired by Fashion...

Today's challenge was one I have been looking forward to!

I love fashion... and there's so many funky new designs, patterns and fabrics I'm loving at the moment! 

One of my favourite's being Camilla and Marc...

aren't this dressed, tops, skirts and outfits totally beautiful?

I loved this collection so much I just had to do this for my nails! 


and don't they match nicely :) 






(I was hoping the pink would look a bit brighter... like the pink of the tops and skirts in the Camilla and Marc collection)

Day Twenty-Two: Spotty gradient...

So this is a bit of a spiced up gradient...

I tend to think that I've done the gradient look enough times...
and I do really love gradient manicures! 
but for this challenge I wanted something a little different...
and thus,
Spotty Gradient...

Like?

I used:
Revlon (my newest) Dreamer (for the base) 
Kleancolour Neon sapphire and Australis (TBC) for the dots

Day Nineteen: Rainbow nails!!!!



Photobucket
Rainbow nails yeah?


I was thinking, hmm, colourful, bright bright colours?...

Why not do a rainbow...
I'll admit it's not perfect, and it's a bit smudge-y... but actually I like that look, I feel like it looks more arty and old-school watercoloured...

I really like today's nails! 



some pretty cool colours:
Including: Revlon, Revlon Red; OPI (orange), a roll in the Hague; Sally Hansen, Yellow Mellow; Elf, Bright Green; Revlon, (blue) Royal; Revlon, No Shrinking Violet; and Revlon, Plum Attraction...

and here you have my 'alligator sky' nails...

Day Sixteen: Metallic epic-ness

Photobucket
Today's challenge Metallic, Awesome! 
I had recently received in the post my new OPI "goldeneye" nail polish... 
I thought perfect, I can show it off in the metallic challenge! 


Boy did I change my mind... I had decided I wanted to use both gold and silver.. and since I liked my new gold more I would do a slightly uneven design and split the colours on my ring fingers and thumbs... 
I painted the silver (a BYS pretty cheap one) and thought, right, now to add the gold...

I began painting with 'Goldeneye' (and don't get me wrong I like this polish) but it totally didn't match! 



I was a bit concerned as I didn't have many other gold's... I had 'gold get 'em' from Revlon, but that was much too sheer for my design...
In the end I accidentally picked up my gold shatter...
I remembered a friend saying that if you don't paint shatter on top of another nail polish it doesn't shatter...
This being said I thought, hey why not try...
So removed my base coat and painted my nails, and wa-lah...

Gold and Silver Manicure. With Studs. 

Watch out for my nail-art-spam...
