31DC2014: Day 30-Inspired by “a tutorial”

Good evening lovelies,

So wow this week was crazy,it swallowed me whole.

I have the last 2 posts for the challenge tonight. I did them today.

chalkboard-nails-31-day-challenge-2014-just-peachyI was inspired by a Youtube Tutorial from cutepolish (see here)

I did have exactly the same colours as her so I used the closest ones in my neon collection that I could.

I used the following polishes:

  • TOY Maaji “Candy Bay”
  • Bourjois “Cerise Noire”
  • OPI “Steady As She Rose”
  • Catrice “For Bright Guys”
  • TOY Maaji “Maaji’s Ocean”

Its just a basic dotticure but I thought the colours looked so pretty together I just had to try it.

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 25-Inspired by “fashion”

Good Morning my dears,

The second I saw my inspiration image I knew I was going to use it for today’s prompt.

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

I am no Fashionista, but I can appreciate a stunning design. What is better than a rainbow coloured dress? Not much!

This dress is from Chanel SS14 Collection.

I used a lot of polishes.

  • SinfulColors “Snow Me White”
  • Tip Top “Sherbet Angel”
  • L.A. Colors Art Deco Liner “Bright Green”
  • Essence “Flashy Pumpkin”
  • Essence “The Boy Next Door”
  • Essence “Prom Berry”
  • Essence “Little Miss Sunshine”
  • Essence “I’m So Very”
  • Essence “Do You Speak Love”
  • Essence “Fame Fatal”
  • Essence “Redvolution”

All the Essence polishes are from the Colour & Go Range.

I mixed all the colours with white polish (Except for the last 4 polishes, because red and white make pink). Each time I added a little more white to make the colours lighter.

I am so in love with this nail art.

I have seen someone else who has used these dresses as inspiration and done the same thing, I cant recall on which blog but she also did a great job at it.

What do you think?

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.

20140815_222048

 

I decided I wanted to do something bright and fun.

So I used the following polishes:

  • SinfulColors “Snow Me White”
  • China Glaze “Flip Flop Fantasy”
  • Tip Top “Purple Bow Peep”
  • Tip Top “Sunkissed”
  • Tip Top “Get The Party Started”

20140815_222548

I used Snow Me White as the base colour and then sponged on the gradient.

I feel like this is so incomplete but Nail Art is getting so crazy and busy I decided to keep it simple and leave it as is.

What do you think?

31DC2014: Day 2-Orange Nails

Hey Lovelies,

Its day 2 😀 and today is Orange.

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

I sat back an looked at my limited choice of orange polishes and decided to deviate ever so slightly and go with a Neon Coral, its still kind of Orange but only a little.

I have been obsessed with neon’s and nudes lately. So I decided that’s what today’s Mani will be.

20140727_200547

I used the following polishes for today:

  • China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy
  • TOY Maaji Sandy Oasis

So I did a neon french.

Saturday Seeds #3

Happy weekend Lovelies,

Hope you all having a good relax.

So I saw this picture and was like wow that would be easy to do… Boy was I wrong…

I love the colours for the weeks challenge but I just couldn’t get what was in my head out onto my nails. It could have been the fact that I have had a really busy week at work and was a bit tired. Or it could have been that I accidentally left this to the last minute. Whatever the case may be this weeks Saturday Seed post is a total Nail Fail!

Ok let me show you.

20140622_201102

 

I used the following polishes:

  • Essence “Loves Recipe”
  • Essence “L.O.L.”
  • Essence “Gorgeous Bling Bling”
  • SinfulColors “Rise & Shine”
  • TOY Maaji “Maaji’s Ocean”

All of these together gave me this…

20140622_205256

I did a gradient using Rise & Shine and Maaji’s Ocean and then used the Essence polishes to do the details.

20140622_205305

I think that I am going to have to add this to my retry list so that I can see if it can be done better, which I know for a fact it can be!

But oh well whats done is done, at least now I learn my lesson and wont leave this to the last minute again.
