Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge -Day 14 Flowers

Hi girlies and welcome to my day 14
entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! Today I went with my orange w7 polish and white for my accent flower. I used Barry M raspberry for the other flowers.
I used dots to create these flowers and I really dislike them :(

Anna Rifle Bond Floral

Hi girlies! Here is a floral mani for you, inspired by Anna Rifle’s stationary range. I saw a tutorial over at The Beauty Department and fell in love with the simple floral designs so I decided to recreate it!

My mani is slightly different to the original but I still like it lots!
What do you think? I love The Beauty Department.

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?

3D Floral/Safari

Hello fellow nailoholics! I finally got around to trying the 3D flowers that I purchased from Born Pretty Store.

I chose to use one of my teal Nails Inc. polishes as my background. I used my nail art pens to draw a blossom design on my thumb and stuck my 3D flower on using clear nail polish.

I realise now that thinking clear polish would be enough to stick the flower to my nail was a big mistake! I picked up some papers at work today and a sheet slid between my flower and the nail and the 3D flower came clean off :( I have now invested in brush on nail glue (why I never had any in the first place is a mystery!) so I will post a new image of the next 3D experiment soon!

On another naily note, I did a safari manicure on my friend Sarah too.

Nail Challenge Day 30: Recreate your Favourite

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!!
