#52weeknailchallenge: unused plate

This prompt gave me a chance to use an unused polish too. One that's been begging me to use it.

I started with two coats of Pahlish cozy blankets.
This is a stunner! I fell in love with it when I saw it for PPU one month and I didn't get it. And then it came back and I had to get it!
This polish made me think of marble, so I had to add some marble looking images. I double stamped an image from Lina Make Your Mark 8.
I used a gold stampy polish from BPS and Nicole Diary black for the stamping.
I loved loved this! I wanted to wear it forever!!
What do you think?

#52weeknailchallnge: Easter

This post is a little late. The week before and after Easter has been so busy at work that I did not have the energy to sit down and do a post.

Let me show you what I did even if it is a little late. I started with a coat of Hean City Fashion white. I then did a gradient with Essence love is in the air, LOL, Tip Top blueberry pie, fairy dust and melting marshmallows.
I then stamped images from BP 60 with Nicole Diary NS05 on my index, middle and ring finger.
I kinda like how this turned out with the gradient and the stamping over it. It just all goes. What do you think?
Thanks for reading!

Friday Triad: Inspired by Yulia

It's that time of the month again... I've been thinking a lot of my fellow Triad ladies. Joyce and her kitchen fiasco and Michelle and the flood and her house being flooded. I don't know how these ladies do it! I'm honoured to know them!!

Back to the Triad, Michelle chose this mani by @yyulia_m, surprisingly enough I also had this one tagged for recreation. I was slightly stumped as to how to do it, but eventually I chose a method and went it.

I started with two coats of Pahlish Nagini on all my fingers... On my index, middle and ring finger I used a nail art brush to leave a wavy gap at my cuticle open.
I then added some flower decals I got from Aliexpress. I contemplated stamping and colouring things in and then I decided to go for simple.
I had to add a flash shot of Nagini to show how gorgeous it is and all the gold flakies are stunning!!
I'm certain the other two ladies simply knocked this out the park. So head on over to Joyce and Michelle and give them some love. I can't wait for Joyce to get back into the swing of things... I've been missing her blog posts and nail art.
Thanks for stopping by!

#52weeknailchallenge: Autumn

I was really very tempted to do spring for this prompt, but I decided against it, I guess I can't do spring twice in a year! Or I could, but anyway.

I was browsing Pinterest for some inspo and came across this mani and I fell in love with it. So decided I had to recreate it!
I started with two coats of 3ina 155 on my thumb, index and middle finger. On my ring finger I have two coats OPI don't touch my tutu and on my pinky two coats of essence meet me under the mistletoe.
I then stamped the leaves from Lina summer 2 with Mundo de Unas dark grey.
Matte top coated with OPI and done. I really liked how this turned out. What do you think? Autumn-ey enough?

#52weeknailchallenge: blue and black

This prompt had me slightly stumped, since blue and black is not generally colours that you see together often. So after doing some thinking, matching blues and looking at decals, I finally came up with this.

I started with two coats of Ulta3 black satin on my thumb, index finger and pinky. On my middle finger I have two coats of Hean City Fashion 168. I was slightly concerned that 168 isn't "blue" enough, but it's a shade of blue so it totally counts!
I added a coat of Sinful Colors green ocean, because it looks stunning over black! And to give CF 168 a little sparkle.
I then added a minimalistic decals and done. Easy peasy.
What do you think? I love how green ocean looks. I really need to use it more often.

Thanks for reading!

#52weeknailchallenge: zodiac

For today's prompt I decided to not do any specific zodiac sign... Partly because I forgot I can do one and partly because I didn't have lots of time.

So I started with two coats of Glisten & Glow coffee and cuss words. This polish might as well be me, in a bottle. I'd kill for a decent cuppa and I have a potty mouth, especially if you annoy me. Or piss me off.
Coffee and cuss words is so pretty with the purple sometimes green shimmer. You can actually see the green tint at my cuticle. And the subtle holo! Since I didn't want to cover it too much I stamped a simple design with Nicole Diary white.
The image is from Konad 23 and guess what... This plate has specific zodiac designs on it.
What do you think? I think I really need to do a proper Zodiac mani, maybe next year if it's still part of the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
