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.

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 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 😀

Everything was just sponged on at random over the white sponging. I used “Absolutely Blue” as the base colour.

31DC2014: Day 17-Glitter

Happy Happy middle of the week 😀

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

 

We are almost at the end of the Styles section. I normally manage to get this far, I struggle when it comes to the “Inspired by” section. Eeek its so close.

Anyway so today is Glitter, so lets get “Sparkly”

20140817_152418

 

 

I used:

  • China Glaze “Glistening Snow”
  • TOY “Lila”
  • L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art Liner “Vibrant”
  • Born Pretty Store Glitter Kit 

As with glitter, I always struggle to capture how it looks in real life on camera. So I did the usual flash and no flash

Below is with Flash

And without flash.

This challenge is starting to get tough, its difficult to be inspired every single day. But I am going to trudge on and finish this challenge!

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 6-Violet Nails

Hello my Lovely readers,

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

Day 6 is my favorite by far! Hello purple polish! Its my fav polish colour of all!

20140814_193940

I used:

  • China Glaze “Tail Me Something”
  • Tip Top “Surfer Girl”
  • TOY “Lila”
  • Essence Colour & Go ” Break Through”
  • Essence Colour & Go ” Oh My Glitter”

I did a drip mani, but it looks like a melted purple candle.

Tail Me Something is a texture polish so it stands out above the rest. Really gives that melted wax feel.

31DC2014: Day 3-Yellow Nails

Morning Lovelies,

Its day 3 today and that means Yellow nails 😀

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

 

I had so many ideas for this but in the end I settled on a soft delicate look.

20140727_204324

I stamped today! I used my MoYou London Bridal Collection Plate 07.

The polishes I used are as follows:

  • SinfulColors “Unicorn”
  • Essence Colour & Go “Hello Marshmallow“

Its really plain and simple but oh so pretty.

I was really happy with the way it came out.

20140727_204317

What do you think? Yellow is also one of those tough colours. Hard to use as the main focus colour.
