#52weeknailchallenge: feathers

Sometimes I have an idea of what I would like to do with some of these prompts and then come the time to actually do it. I do the complete opposite!! I intended to use some vinyls and have some pretty glittery feathers and then I went and used decals!

I started with two coats of Orly two HR lunch on my pinky, index finger and thumb. The rest has two coats of Catrice good lack!
I then added some feather decals. 
Top coated and done. In case you were wondering, most of my decals are from Aliexpress. They sell packs of 50 sheets for $2-$4. I don't think I'll run out anytime soon.
What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

#52weeknailchallenge: inspired by a photo

Today's prompt was quite easy to chose.... Michelle had sent a photo to our secret santa group some time ago commenting on how we should do a mani inspired by the design. So I thought that today would be a good time to do just that.
This is one of the many pictures she sent, but this one shows the design the best. Let me show you what I did. I started with two coats of Tip Top perfect look on all my nails.
I then stamped an image from Lina Feeling 09 with Nicole Diary white stamping polish.
And that's another easy mani. What do you think? 
And as always thanks for reading!!

#52weeknailchallenge: pink + white

This mani is somewhat inspired by @chitchatnails. I also decided to use gel polishes as I was planning on wearing these a little longer than a couple of days.

On my ring and middle finger I have Gel-It malibu and on my thumb, index and pinky I have Gel-It tigerlilly.
I tried to do a bit of a dry brush on my middle and ring finger with tigerlilly, curing in between the brush strokes. I also added some gold foil I got from Aliexpress.
What do you think? Tigerlilly is probably not quite pink, but it's close enough.
I had this on for 2 weeks before I took it off, as the foil was starting to discolour where it wasn't sealed properly.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Friday Triad: Inspired by Olga (@son_nail)

It's that time again! I can't believe we at the end of another month. I wonder how many Triad posts we have done already...

So this month it was my turn and I chose this mani done by @son_nail. I had loads of floral and negative space looks saved as inspiration, but I didn't want to do floral and not everyone likes negative space... So I chose the least offensive one! 

I started with two coats of Cirque Colors pebble on my thumb, index and middle finger. My pinky has one coat of Sorbet chic me baby.
On my ring finger I have two coats of a random HD polish. The aztec design (thanks Mich)(now you know where it's from), is decals from Aliexpress.
The leaves I stamped with Munde de Unas caramel from Lina Summer 2. So whilst doing this, I realised that I can't place decals in a straight line.... Even when I use my clear stamper!! 
I do like how this turned out, but I don't love it... It doesn't quite grab me like the original did. I think I should have used a different colour on my ring finger. What do you think?

Head on over to Joyce and Michelle to see how they totally rock this!
