Hi beauties-it is the last day in Julie’s 30 day nail challenge and today is the recreate your favourite day. It’s crazy to think it has been 30 days since we started this journey, I am so happy with myself that I managed to do each and every day! Well done to all my fellow bloggers who have done some fabulous nail designs over the 30 days – I am forever inspired by you all!
So which mani to recreate? Well I chose the floral day-I couldn’t resist! You know I have a weakness for pretty florals!
My recreated floral is much the same as my original-I just changed the colours. I couldn’t chose a favourite design out of the two if I had to-I love them both! I like the springy colours and how they make my nails look all pretty and girly. I think lilac will be my next floral base.
I cannot believe this is the end of the challenge. Quick Julie, come up with something else for us to do!!
Hi sweeties, it’s day 29 in Julie’s 30 day nail challenge, can you believe there is only one day left?! Today the theme is inspired by a song, and I chose a simple one-Suit and Tie by Justin Timberlake.
I have seen this mani around in the nail world but had never tried it, so I thought this was a perfect chance! A simple suit and tie. I think this mani is really cute!
I chose a dress from the AW2013 collection and recreated the swirly pattern on my nails. I had a few fashion designs in mind, but this one really caught my attention! I think it’s the fact that the sun was shining here in the UK and it looked like a beautiful summer scene, I could imagine being in the sea when looking at it!
I love The Beauty Department blog, so I had to choose one of their tutorials. This is a real pretty, girly manicure that you could do with any colours! I chose to keep my colours the same as the tutorial but I love it as it is so adorable!
I chose to do this challenge on my toes. I chose Barry M ‘lychee’ as a base and Nina Pro ‘Call the Coppers’ as the glitter gradient. I also used an Avon gold glitter a part of my gradient. I used a sponge to create my gradient by painting the copper and gold glitter onto plastic, then picking it up with a cosmetic sponge. Although when I was painting it, I thought it was turning into a disaster, I am quite impressed with this pedi! It’s so sparkly!
I couldn’t chose which one design to go for, so I went for a variety!
I used many of my crackle polishes for this effect. My thumb is a Boots magnetic polish, then I have opi silver shatter on my index and pinkie, another Boots gold crackle on my middle finger and Barry M crackle on top of gold on my ring finger.
I went for a simple tape design as I hadn’t got much time for the colour to dry. When I did my previous tape mani (click here to see) I waited a whole day for the colour to dry, and painted over the tape a day later. These spangly colours remind me of a mermaid.
