Saturday Seeds #1

Happy Saturday Lovelies,

So today I have a super fun concept to share with you that I have been wanting to do for some time now.

Have you ever heard of Design Seeds? It’s this really cool website (with an exceptionally addictive Pinterest too) that does colour combo’s of pretty pictures. I am signed up to their mailing list and get 2 images every night.

I started playing with the idea of using them to challenge myself to do more nail art. I love colours, I have always loved anything colourful. As a child I used to get those art sets every Christmas, the ones with the pencils, paints, pastels, markers and crayons. I would tip them all out, arrange them by colour around me and draw for hours on end.

Ok so let me show you what I’m talking about…


So now you see what I am talking about.

My idea is to do one of these every Saturday and call it Saturday Seeds. I will then only use “tried polishes”. I figure doing that I will get to use colours that never see the light of day anymore. My plan is not to try copy the image but to be inspired by it while using the selected 6 polishes.

Let me show you which polishes I used to get the closest match to the Seeds:


I used:

  • Essence L.O.L.
  • Essence Little Miss Sunshine
  • Catrice For Bright Boys
  • O.P.I Planks A Lot
  • O.P.I Lucky Lucky Lavender
  • O.P.I Steady As She Rose
  • Born Pretty Store White Glitter

So here is what I did.


I have been playing with tape Mani’s lately so decided to apply that technique here using the selected colours and then added a top coat and sprinkled the glitter (which I also proceeded to mess EVERYWHERE!)

What do you think? Excited to see more of these? I challenge you to try this too! It’s so fun!
