MTV Nail Challenge 10. Watermarble & Gradient

mtv-challengeIt is finally here, the last day of the #MTVnailChallenge… 

I have had so much fun with this challenge and getting to see all the wonderful interpretations from all the ladies involved!

Todays final challenge was somewhat scary to me! I have never ever been a fan of water marbling and pretty much have failed at it many times!

But this time I was pleasantly surprised by how well it actually turned out. For a change I used my Tip Top polishes to do the water marble and it was as easy as pie (Never understood that saying, Pie is not that easy hehe)

So for my interpretation of the challenge I used the following polishes:

Polishes Used

Tip Top Nail Addict in 137 Army Vibes

and Tip Top Nail Chic in 991 Blue My Whistle, 966 Blue Meets Green and 974 In The Navy!

I started with the water marble first before doing my Gradient.

See how beautifully the Tip Top polishes spread.

I ran out of sponges so I had to rethink how I was going to do the Gradient. I ended up going with a dotted gradient.

I actually love this mani to death! I am going to say it is my favorite out of all the ones done in this challenge. I am really glad that I can end off on such a high note.

This has in fact changed my opinion about the water marble technique completely! I am in love lol.

For the last and final time go take a look at the other ladies involved in the challenge:

mtv-challenge

This week marks the end of the challenge and I am most proud of myself for sticking to it and doing all the challenges even if one or two were a little late.

When I saw today’s challenge I was pretty excited. I have always wanted to do Galaxy nails and to incorporate a rainbow edge would be pretty cool as well!

So for this mani I used a tone of different polishes so the list today will be rather long so please bare with me 😀

MTV Nail Challenge 6. Violet & Tribal

mtv-challenge

Today’s challenge is number 6 on the list. It is required that we use Violet polishes & incorporate Tribal print.

So here is my take on it.

My print is more to the African Tribal side because we live in Africa.

I was really happy with this BUT I could not get my hand steady! It was driving me crazy. When working with nail art like this I find it much easier to use Nail Art pens! I even went as far as going to Maskscara to buy myself a black Cina Pen but they didn’t have any stock *weeps silently! I placed an order for one though so hopefully I will get it soon 😀

Anyway back to the challenge.

I used the following polishes for my Tribal Mani:

Polishes Used

L.A. Colors Art Deco Liner in NA948 Vibrant & NA922 Magenta

Essence Colour & Go in 133 Oh My Glitter & 148 Prom-Berry

And lastly my most prized polish… My Silver Models Own Nail Art Pen

It all came together to look like this

MTV Nail Challenge 4. Green & Flowers

mtv-challengeChallenge 4 really got my creative juices flowing. I wanted to do something fun and feminine.

I took inspiration from a blogger known as “Little Nails“, I think she is uber talented as she paints both her left and right hand Identical! I find it rather difficult to do that myself lol.

Polishes used

I used so many polishes for this mani and it took me over an hour to finish it. (Before I could even take a photo my bf had to show me which nail was his fav and ended up touching it before it was completely dry so he smudged it a little… Was not impressed)

I used all Essence Colour & Go polishes:

136 Loves Recipe

150 Upper Green Side

151 We Rock the Green

106 Free Hugs

108 Ultimate Pink

137 Wanna Be Your Sunshine

103 Space Queen

4. Green & Flowers

I was really impressed by how cute this came out.
