31DC2014: Day 29-Inspired by “the supernatural”

Are you ready to feel the spook?

I wasn’t sure at first what I was going to do but then I decided on an idea that is rather spooky.

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

 

 

Being so close to October & Halloween I wanted to get practicing and so I decided to do a Haunted Graveyard Mani.

20140928_210957I tried to stick to a halloweeny colour palette.

I used:

  • Essence Colour & Go “Grey-T To Be Here”
  • Catrice “For Bright Guys”
  • Essence Breaking Dawn Part 2 “Edwards Love”
  • Essence Colour & Go “Black is Back”

20140928_210908I painted the light grey base & then did a gradient using “Edwards Love” then I painted on the haunted details. Right down to the dark moon and looming mists.

What do you say? Are you ready for Halloween? I know I am, Im busy hunting down a new challenge to do (See last years on here)

31DC2014: Day 27-Inspired by “artwork”

Happy Saturday my lovelies,

Today is day 27, so 4 days to go. Its madness I tell you, time flies too quickly.

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

 

I saw this piece on Pinterest a little while back and fell in love with it.

20f3a7eceb88765741e027469e94e04fThis is just such a pretty painting.

Its by Sharon Cummings and you can see more of her work here https://www.etsy.com/shop/BuyArtSharonCummings.

20140924_212500I used:

  • Essence Colour & Go “Black is Back”
  • Tip Top “In The Navy”
  • Essence Colour & Go “The Boy Next Door”
  • Essence Colour & Go “Absolutely Blue”
  • SinfulColors “Snow Me White”

I started with the black as my base colour, I then dotted big blotches of white and left it to dry. Once that was done I painted on the blues from lightest to darkest.

20140924_212756This feels like dinosaur skin hehe but the effect is great and very similar to the painting.

What do you think?

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”

20140914_105602

 

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

What do you think?

31DC2014: Day 18-Half Moons

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???

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.

31DC2014: Day 11-Polka Dots

Happy Happy Thursday everyone :D,

Day 11 has arrived and it brings forth one of my favorite Nail art techniques… Dotting ❤

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

 

I have more dotting tools than I do nailart brushes… I have a spare set just in case I loose one.

So for today’s Nail art I wanted to do something different. I decided on Matte Nails 😀

20140815_234643

 

I used the following polishes:

  • China Glaze “Flip Flop Fantasy”
  • Essence Colour & Go “Black is Black”
  • Essence Nail Art Special Effect! Topper (matte) “Soft Touch”
  • Essence Nail Art Special Effect! Topper “Hello Holo”

I started with a base of “Black is Back” and then added 2 coats of “Soft Touch”. Then I dotted on some holo and neon dots and Tah-Dah!

Its a Dotticure.

31DC2014: Day 7-Black & White Nails

Hello Lovelies,

Wow 1 week down!

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

 

Today is black & white.

20140814_210222

 

I used:

  • SinfulColors “Snow Me White”
  • SinfulColors “Black on Black”

I decided to do some stamping… But it wasn’t so successful. I just couldn’t get clean lines. It drove me bonkers lol.

In the end I gave up after multiple attemps.

20140814_210236

I used my MoYou London Festive Collection Plate 04. I love this plate because even though its a Christmas plate I can use some of the images for anything!

Anyone have tips to getting a clean lined stamp? My frustrations could be measured on the Richter scale!
