Purple French with Water Decal

Hello Lovelies

My nails were starting to get to a really nice long length (and all intact!) so I took advantage of this rare occurrence and rounded them off some more, more than my usual sqaoval shape and tried more of an oval shape. 

From here, I had the best intententions of creating a "dramatic" french tip, however in the end it still looked like an ordinary french tip to me LOL.   

I finished off the look with pretty pink flower water decals which I purchased online at KKCentreHk (link below).

Two Shades of Pink...

Hi Everyone, 

Another quick post.  Apologies for the terrible photo, but this was taken when my husband went away on a work trip for two weeks and he was wondering what I was doing to keep myself busy while he was away... so I sent him a picture :)

I used a coat of PicturePolish Fairy Floss, then in an attempt to tone that down I applied a layer of OPI I Theodora You, which is a thick sheer pink.

Over all I was pretty happy with the result.

Ingredients Used:
  • Base Coat1 - Orly Bonder
  • Base Coat - OPI Ridge Filler
  • Colour1 - PicturePolish Fairy Floss
  • Colour2 - OPI I Theodora You
  • Stamp Plate - Pueen05
  • Stamping Polish - OPI Alpine Snow
  • Top Coat - Poshé

#OMD3 - Day 4 - Black & Gold

Every time I think about the theme for today's challenge I keep getting the song "Black and Gold" keeps getting stuck in my head.  lol

Black and Gold are two classic colours and when combined, they reek sophistication.  I feel like slinking into a black, floor length dress and sip martini's at a bar... anyway back to the manicure.  I thought a classic Ruffian manicure would suit this combination perfectly.

I only wish my nails were longer, oh well they're getting there.

my favourite finger :) thumbs up!

  • Base:  OPI Ridge Filler
  • Gold:  OPI Oy-Another Polish Joke!
  • Black:  OPI Black Onyx
  • Top Coat:  Poshé

#OMD3 - Day 3 - Silver

It's only day 3 of the OMD3 Nail Challenge and I'm seeing some pretty incredible designs already!

Here is my design using an amazing silver polish from OPI, that is OPI Push and Shove from the Gwen Stefani collection. When this drys it goes completely smooth.  looks incredible, like real chrome.

I've then layered over some zebra strips to give it more oomph!

#OMD3 - Day 1 - Teal

This is the first time I've heard of the "Oh Mon Dieu" Nail Art Challenge and it looks like a great one too! I'm getting right on this band wagon.

Day1 is Teal.  So wet with a teal marble affect manicure.  Starting with a base of OPI Fly, I then made my first layer of spotted polish, OPI Ski Teal We Drop.  Then a dash of Silver with OPI Push And Shove, the finally a layer of OPI Black Onyx.

It's a technique I saw on YouTube OhMyGoshPolish do a couple of tutorials and I was inspired.  It's like Water Marbling, well it's exactly the same until you spray hand sanitiser or in my case I used hair spray.  

This is the first time I've tried this technique, I really enjoyed the result on my left hand (the photographic of the two) I decided to get the right hand into part of the fun as well. 

Ingredients Used:
  • Base:  OPI Ridge Filler
  • Base Colour:  OPI Fly
  • Spotted Marbling:
    • Layer 1:  OPI Ski Teal We Drop
    • Layer 2:  OPI Push And Shove
    • Layer 3:  OPI Black Onyx
  • Top Coat:  Posché

So many layers, it took me 2hrs by the time I finished both hands!  Phew what a marathon!
Looking forward to more of this Nail Art Challenge.
