31 Day Challenge 2015 Day 3: Yellow

I buy a lot of polish and associated things from the Facebook group UK Only Polish & Beauty Swaps and Sales. I picked up a load of packets of fimo slices and I’ve been itching to use them for ages. For the yellow nail prompt I borrowed an idea for cocktail nails that I really, really liked from Glowstars last year and came up with these – glasses of fizzy lemonade!

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 3: Yellow Nails

I’m back from London! Kate Bush was INCREDIBLE. What a privilege it was to see her! I did special nails which I’ll show you later in the week!

Barry M brought out their new collection of Autumn inspired Gellies just a few weeks ago, and I got my hands on all six of them on Monday night. I couldn’t resist using one today: a fabulous burnt yellow called Mustard:

Tri-Polish Tuesday #3: Blue, Yellow & Pink

Another Tuesday already? It must be time for another tri-polish design. This one is inspired by Nuthin’ But A Nail Thing.

Tri-Polish Tuesday #2: Blue, Yellow & Pink

Another Tuesday, another inventive way to use three very bright colours. Today I have outdone myself:

Tri-Polish Tuesday: Blue, Yellow & Pink

I’ve been meaning to get around to doing one of these for months! I’m thanking my lucky stars I had a weekend all to myself and I filled it with nail art. It was great!

I’m very pleased with this. The point of Tri-Polish Tuesday is that you have three colours and you’re only allowed to use those, black and white, gold and silver and glitter toppers. The colours for April are Pink, Yellow and Blue. A bit close to primary colours for me and I struggled to think of a design for a while but then I figured I’d just go for a simple gradient. And somehow, three colours have become many!

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 14: Sweets

Another prompt, another perhaps unoriginal but whole new to me design. I love an excuse to do something new with caviar – follow the tag to see some of my other hair-brained ideas. When I was trying to come up with a sweet-inspired nail art design my first thought was liquorice allsorts! My favourite ones are the jelly ones covered in little beads of sugar. A nail art match made in heaven!

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 7: Primary

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 7: Primary

I confess, I had to look this one up. It’s so long since I had to remember the difference between Primary, Secondary and whatever other colours that I wasn’t sure whether Primary was *just* red, blue and yellow, or whether or not green etc counted. They don’t, by the way. Primary colours are Red, Yellow and Blue.

Having catalogued my collection, I noticed that I often stick to the same set of colours most of the time. As part of this challenge I intend to use as many polishes as I can. Today I got in two untrieds. Yay!
