Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge -Day 11 Stripes

Hi girlies and welcome to my day 11 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! Today I went with my glequins to create the stripes as none of my stripes actually looked like stripes!!

(These photos aren’t good! I couldn’t capture the glequins because the nail polish colour and glequin colour was too similar!)

Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge -Day 3 Purple

Hi girlies and welcome to my day 3 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! I went with Avon Smoky Plumes for this one because of it’s deep purpleness (new word!). I also received my spangly heart glequins today so I used those in a pinky/purple colour on two feature nails.

The heart glequins are thicker than my normal glequins so they are raised from my nail. I don’t know how long they will last…

Birthday Nails!

Hi all! I have done two lots of lovely birthday nails today for my friends. Both manis are to match a dress.

The first is a floral/butterfly mani.
The dress this is inspired by has blue and pink flowers with black butterflies.

The second is a nautical mani.
The dress is this is inspired by is royal blue, so I thought a nautical theme would suit.

As you can tell from the pictures I have used a range of techniques and polishes; glequins, Barry M nail art pens, dotting tools, feather polish and glitter gradient.

What do you think of these birthday manis?

Glequin Half Mani

So I loved my ring finger on my last mani that much that I had to recreate it and mix it up a bit!

I chose a base of Glints of Glinda – Opi, and a glittery black from Avon .

I then chose a variety of coloured glequins to put on each hand.

This is what I came up with:

So I have red, emerald, baby pink, electric blue and lime glequins; different nail, different colour.

This mani didn’t take long considering all my glequins. I love it! It feels glamorous and sparkly.

What do you think?

Birthday Nails!

Hi beauties, thank you all for your super birthday nails suggestions!

I went with a mix of the suggestions, all except animal print. I used Pocket Money Polishes suggestion of Barry M ‘Lychee’, Elise’s suggestion of birthstone nails and Helen’s party glitter idea.

This is what I came up with…

I chose to do a glitter gradient like I have done previously on the lychee polish because it works so well with the dress I plan to wear! I would have preferred to do a silver glitter gradient ideally because there are silver sequins on my dress, but I still haven’t found the perfect silver for gradients!

My glequin nail is emerald green – my birthstone.

It’s not too different to my previous pedi really. What do you think?
