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

Hello everybody ๐Ÿ˜€

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 ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 4-Green Nails

Its day 4 My lovelies,

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

Green nails for days ๐Ÿ˜€ lol I spent a good few days brainstorming for this one. Its not lie when I tell you that 1 third of my collection is purely green nail polish so to narrow my colour selection down was crazy difficult. I ended up using a huge amount of polishes but the overall look was so cool.

This mani actually didnt even take that long considering the long list of polishes.

20140729_213943

 

So I used the following polishes for this mani:

  • China Glaze “Unpredictable”
  • Tip Top “Army Vibes”
  • Essence Colour & Go ” Upper Green Side”
  • Essence Colour & Go ” Walk On The Wild Side”
  • Essence Colour & Go “We Rock The Green”
  • Essence Colour & Go ” Splash!”
  • Models Own Silver Liner Nail Art Pen
  • Cina Black Nail Art Pen
  • L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art Liner “Bright Green”
  • Seche Vite

Its Stained Glass Nails or Mosaic Nails, I cant decide which one to call it.

I just painted on the colours at random and then added a coat of Seche, then outlined all the colours and then coated seche again.

Easy as Pie ๐Ÿ˜€

Halloween Challenge- Gothic

halloweenchallenge

 

Having a Gamer Bf is sometimes a blessing and sometimes a curse! Its a blessing when he is playing his games and not interfering and you get hours to sit and play with your polishes. Its a Curse when you have posts to do and he has been playing for hours on the only PC available and you miss out on 2 challenge post days.

Lol

So the Challenge is Gothic and boy was it a challenge! I googled and looked up every possible polish related post to get inspired. Eventually I gave up and just winged it…

Gothic Mani

I was really impressed with the end result! I used a few different polishes.

For the Base, Essence Colour & Go 144 Black Is Back, L.A. Colors Art Deco Liner in NA914 Red, Models Own Silver Nail Art Pen, Tip Top- Sexy In The City Sprinkle Beads and Tip Top Nail Chic in Matt-Nificent (Ring Finger only).

I hand drew the Rose on my finger and was mighty chuffed when my friend asked me is it was a sticker hehe.

 

So That’s my Gothic Nails.

What do you think?

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.

So for this mani I used a tone of different polishes so the list today will be rather long so please bare with me ๐Ÿ˜€

So yesterday was post day for the MTV Nail Art Challenge and I was supposed to post my interpretation of the Metallic & Halfmoons challenge so here it is :p

MTV Nail Challenge 6. Violet & Tribal

mtv-challenge

Todayโ€™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 didnโ€™t have any stock *weeps silently! I placed an order for one though so hopefully I will get it soon ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway back to the challenge.

I used the following polishes for my Tribal Mani:

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 polishโ€ฆ My Silver Models Own Nail Art Pen

It all came together to look like this
