31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 9: Rainbow Nails

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 9: Rainbow Nails

I feel like there aren’t really many things you can do with Rainbow as a theme. As such, I think I’ve used some artistic license here. But I like the results, whether or not you think they satisfy the Rainbow prompt…

Happy Easter! Good Friday Nails

Happy Easter! Good Friday Nails

I’ve seen a lot of bunny and chick nails over the last few weeks, but these don’t really say Easter to me at all. Spring, sure, but Easter is about more than that! As a Christian, Easter for me is about the death of Jesus and his resurrection 3 days later. So I’ve got two sets of Easter nails to show you – one for today, Good Friday, when we commemorate Jesus being crucified, and then on Easter Sunday I’ve got “He is Risen” nails.

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

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 3: Warm vs. Cool

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 3: Warm vs. Cool

EDIT: Please vote for these nails in Grazia’s Manicure Monday competition!

This prompt had me stumped for ages. Someone in the Polish Passionistas group posted this image of what Warm vs. Cool means – essentially warm colours are pink/red through to yellow, and cold colours are yellow/green through to violet. This did not help me much. If I ever have to do this prompt again I will be totally stuck because this was all I could think of!

A Wheel Load of Pink

A Wheel Load of Pink

This has been sitting in my “to-post” pile since last month, when I spent the weekend looking after my poorly partner with nothing to amuse me but a whole load of pinks and neutrals. For my sister’s baby shower I had intended to do pink manicures and take a wheel of simple designs with me to inspire people. Sadly, I never got to do that, but I did the wheel of designs anyway. Except I didn’t go in for the simple so much, with a lot of them.
