The colours are gorgeous and my nails are much shinier than the picture shows. Thank you Santa!
What do you think? Did you have any polish from Father Christmas?
Hello you lovely bunch! I haven’t blogged in forever! But I have been watching you all! I have been very inspired by all the Christmas nail art that I have seen, so painted a little mix and match festive nail art today. And guess what?! It didn’t make me feel sick yippee! Hopeful that I can paint my nails a little more from now on!
Anyway, here is my first festive nail design. Candy Cane Toes
I love my little candy cane toes! I used Barry M white for the base and Barry M red glitter for the stripes. I used some washi tape for my big stripes and stripping tape for my smaller ones.
My second festive nail design is Mix & Match Festive Fingers!
I couldn’t choose 1 design, so I chose 5! I have a Santa thumb, Christmas tree finger, reindeer finger, snowman finger and a pudding pinky! I free handed all the designs here.
I stumbled across a new blog today and was immediately inspired to try out a new nail technique. Kelly, over at Getting Girly with Konad, did a white and pink “Saran Wrap” mani. Now after a little research I found that “Saran Wrap” is cling film here in the UK! I was in love with the white/pink colour combo so decided to stick with that for this pedi. So I painted my base, two coats of Barry M white and Seche. Then I waited a good 20 minutes for it all to dry. Then I painted Opi Pink Flamenco and quickly used my cling film to dab off the polish. Then I painted a light glitter topper and Seche to complete my pedi.
I love how simple this is and how it looks different on every nail depending on how hard/how many times you press the cling film down. It would be easy to make an old mani look new again by using this technique over dry polish. It looks sort of like I could graffiti on my nails now, such a super easy nail art technique. What do you think?
Hi girlies and welcome to my final day 25 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! I decided to only do a few of these challenge days because I am so busy at the moment, I am currently on holiday and will be until the 23rd August so I am sorry that I’m not posting much!
I decided to try out watermelon nails for this day and was inspired by the
“I carried a watermelon!” line from Dirty Dancing.
I used an Avon polish called Watermelon and my lime Barry M polish. Then I used my darker Barry M green and my Barry M pens for the details. What do you think?
