Friday Triad: Inspired by Kakine Nail Art

Hey look at that... Three posts in one week. That's probably not gonna happen again. Anyway, it's time for another Friday Triad. Today was Michelle's choice and it was inspired by this post of Kakine (Hope I got that right). If you want more info on our Friday posts, head on over to Michelle's space... She's way more organised than me and always has a little story.

Count on Michelle to choose pink and super complicated swirls... So I knew I didn't want to do pink, I was considering a gradient, but I chose the lazy way out (it's starting to be a trend here). I started with two coats of I love Hean black on my thumb and pinky. On my index, middle and ring finger I have 2 coats of Hean 281 from the jungle pop collection.
The Jungle Pop collection is really one of my favourites.... Okay, I stamped a swirly cloud image from HeHe 41 with essence black stampy polish. I top coated and waited for that dry. Once that was dry, laid down some pointy vinyls on my index and ring fingers and painted I love Hean black on the sides.
I left my middle finger as is, just to see those lovely swirls... I really like how this turned out, I also got a couple of compliments on this.
What do you think? I think I passed... It is my turn to pick the next inspiration, I hope the girls will like it. Do pop on over to Michelle and Joyce and give them some love!

#52weeknailchallenge: rainbow

Okay seriously... I cannot handle my allergies anymore, it is driving me up the wall. I'm almost constantly sneezing, my nose is blocked most of the time and therefor I haven't been sleeping all that well either. And my nose is so sore from blowing.... Kill me now.

Anyway, this weeks prompt is rainbow and I totally cheated on this! I wanted to do a awesome gradient, but I was lazy. I think I started with a white base, but I can't remember. I didn't make any notes on this.
So I got 50 sheets of water decals from aliexpress for next to nothing. And there were so many random decals. Full nail images, single images, you name it.And this swirly one was among them.
This counts as rainbow right? Right?
That's it for my scum rainbow nails... What do you think?

And as always thanks for stopping by!!

#52weeknailchallenge: inspired by a book

OMG you guys, I completely forgot to post this last week. So here is my quick catch up. I had an idea in mind for what book I wanted to use as my inspiration but it didn't quite work out. So when I mentioned my lack of anything book to our Friday Triad group, Joyce came up with the best idea ever. The newspaper transfer thingy...

Obviously I had no newspaper at the time so I settled for this...I started with two coats of Ulta3 lily white on all my nails. I then took a piece of sponge and sponged on Tip Top toasted nuts.
The image I stamped is from BP-76 and I used Sorbet chic me baby.
Once that was dry I top coated and then added a coat of OPI matte top coat. I kinda like how this turned out... It felt like pages from a book and had that brown colour most books have.
What do you think? And thanks for the idea Joyce!

#52weeknailchallenge: purple

I can't believe we are almost half way through the challenge. Year is half way done.

For the purple prompt I wanted to do a gradient, but first I have a swatch for you. This is two coats of I love Hean 903 from the winter collection. Well I think it's the winter collection...
This is a very pale lilac. And almost seems dirty.
For the gradient I used Tip Top surfer girl, grape dance and purple bow peep.
It's a little bumpy, but I didn't put top coat on yet. Once that was semi dry I added some flower decals from aliexpress.
I really liked this gradient.
I'm kinda bummed about the lines that showed after the decals. I should have top coated before the decal and I've told myself that so many times, but I keep forgetting.
What do you think?

Thanks for reading!

#52weeknailchallenge: inspired by a game aka gambling

I had no idea what I was going to do for this prompt and I was checking out my stamping plates to find some inspiration. So I settled on HeHe 54 which had an image of playing cards and decided that was going to my theme. Playing cards.

I started with two coats of I love Hean 424 on all my fingers except my middle finger, which has two coats of Ulta3 lily white. I then stamped the clover image from BP-63 on all my fingers except my middle with Nubar silver mist.
While all of that was drying I made decals from the playing card image with essence stampy polish black and Sinful Colors snow me white. For my middle finger I made a decal from plate BP-63. The yellow is Hean City Fashion 171 and the red is Essence santa baby.
Once the decals was dry I put them on my clear stamper and then placed them on my nails, to avoid bubbles and to get them where I wanted them.
What do you think? Does this pass for a game? When I showed BF he said it's not a game, it's gambling... But hey, even that is technically a game?
