31DC2014: Day 24-Inspired by “a book”

Good Morning,

Sorry about the delay with this post. I was most annoyed.

Today is inspired by a Book. I tried to decide on a book to use but couldn’t. I had been playing with the Idea of scrapbook nails a while back but never thought much of it.

The concept of scrapbook nails is to take nail stickers and create something different.

20140924_161843I used:

  • Bundle Monster Nail Effects Tribal.

There was absolutely no polish used to make this mani.

The base of my nail art was a really old no name brand (I threw the cover away years ago) nail sticker in a holo silver.

Overall I thought it looked pretty but I think the idea needs some refining.

What do you think? Great way to use nail stickers?

31DC2014: Day 23-Inspired by “a movie”

Hello everybody 😀

Its day 23 and I am starting to lose my steam. I find these last few prompts hella-hard! I only finished this Mani late last night.

Luckily tomorrow is Heritage Day in South Africa so we get to have a mid week break 😀 Yay!

chalkboard-nails-31-day-challenge-2014-just-peachy

 

So as you can see there isn’t much further to go. Yipee! After today’s post there are 8 more to go, I think tomorrow’s prompt is going to be hard but then the rest all look fairly easy.

Anyone have book suggestions? I can see “The Fault in our Stars” being a crowd fav so will avoid that one.

Some of my favourite books are: The beautiful Creatures Saga, The Hunger Games Trilogy, Every Harry Potter Book, Anything Katie Fforde writes and every Nicholas Sparks Novel.

 

Ok so today’s prompt is Movie… This really was tough because I love movies, I don’t just watch them, I disappear into them. I can watch a movie 100 times and not get sick of it (only good movies of course, the bad ones don’t get watched again).

I first settled on P.S. I Love You for today but it didn’t come out good at all so I brainstormed and decided to go with “Babe: Pig in the City”.

Let me just warn you, I was not my most creative.

20140922_210535So the polishes I used are as follows:

  • W Nail Art Pen “Bingo Flamingo”
  • SinfulColors “Snow Me White”
  • Essence Colour & Go “Modern Romance”
  • Models Own Nail Art Pen in Sliver
  • Cina Black Nail Art Pen

20140922_210452So there it is. Babe in the City.

What movie did you do? Or would have done?

31DC2014: Day 22-Inspired by “a song”

Good Morning 😀

Today is Inspired by a Song… I thought about it for a whole of 5 seconds and I knew exactly what song I wanted.

chalkboard-nails-31-day-challenge-2014-just-peachy

 

Its sort of a depro song but man is it stunning! Its called “Black Roses” sung by Claire Bowen aka Scarlett O’Conner from Nashville (The TV Series).

You can see the video here.

Now my only problem was how to paint friggen black roses without just having black blobs on my nails…

 

20140914_110752

 

I  used the following polishes:

  • Essence Colour & Go “Grey-t To Be Here”
  • L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art Liner “Bright Green”
  • Cina Black Nail Art Pen
  • China Glaze “Glistening Snow”

I’m not so great at painting roses, so I just drew them.

What do you think?

31DC2014: Day 21-Inspired by “a colour”

Happy 21st of September, aka Day 21!

chalkboard-nails-31-day-challenge-2014-just-peachy

I have been staring at this option for a while, its rather difficult! But then I was looking through my nail art and remembered how much I loved a mani I did for a review a little while back. I was inspired by the colour combo. I am in love with Rose Gold at the moment! Its one of my favourite metallic colours so I decided to use it as my Colour for today’s  prompt.

20140825_213233

I used:

  • Tip Top “Melting Marshmallow”
  • Revlon ColorStay “Fall Mood”

I then went on to stamp using my MoYou London Bridal Collection Plate.

I thought it came out very pretty but not as striking as my previous mani using these colours (see here).

What do you think?

31DC2014: Day 20-Watermarble

Happy Day 20 😀

chalkboard-nails-31-day-challenge-2014-just-peachy

 

Well I am chuffed with myself. Day 20 done and dusted! 11 more to go 😀 YAY

Let me start by saying this… I Suck at Water Marbling! Suck Suck Suck!! I can generally get it right on 1 nail and then it all goes down hill. So if ever I need to do it I use it as a feature and that it. This time I decided to do my whole mani… Lets see what transpired.

20140825_195047

 

Let me just say it was sheer chaos!

The polishes I used:

  • Tip Top “Sunkissed”
  • Tip Top “Army Vibes”
  • Tip Top “Purple Bow Peep”
  • Tip Top “Blue My Whistle”
  • Tip Top “Get The Party Started”
  • SinfulColors “Snow Me White”

So I used “Snow Me White” as my base and then while that dried I taped up my fingers to avoid a huge clean up.

I then got room temp water (I had to use the hot tap because the cold water was icy cold) and started dropping in my colours.

Dipped in finger, cleaned water and then on to the next finger… It flopped! Big Time! So its safe to say #nailfail.

I’m not a big fan of all the smoke and mirrors some bloggers put up, we are not perfect and nail art can never be stunning 100% of the time. I like to share my failures because when I first saw nail art I was like WOW I need to try that, then I would and it would be crappy and I never felt good. So here it is for all you out there that suck at Water Marble. Welcome to my club 😀

Good morning my Lovelies,

chalkboard-nails-31-day-challenge-2014-just-peachy

 

Today I was in the mood for something a little bit French themed.

I have been obsessed with French Theme anything for years! My first encounter with french themed nail art was Totally Cool Nails tutorial and I attempted the Mani in like 2012 I think???

401944_524550977591011_1112080419_n

 

Ironically today is #tbt so its kind of cool to see what I used to be like. I can actually remember doing this, I remember be so proud of myself!

So todays mani is also inspired by Totally Cool Nails.

20140817_170855

 

So today I used:

  • Cina Black Nail Art Pen
  • SinfulColors “Heartfelt”
  • SinfulColors “Snow Me White”

20140817_170907

 

I actually love this and will be doing it again! Possibly multiple times using various pastels 😀

Share your Halfmoon Mani with me. I would love to see it.
