Day Twenty-Seven: Inspired by a Movie

What movie to choose!!?!?!!?!!?

I'll admit this challenge took me a long time to decide what to do..

I have multiple favourite movies! 

So after many hours staring at the combine collection of MyLove's Blu-rays and my DVDs I decided on a feel-good movie that MyLove loves...

The Wizard of Oz
do you love that movie too?


I hope you can see the connection between this design and the movie...
if not...
My thumb is the yellow brick road..
My index finger is based on Dorothy's Dress...
My middle finger is the colour of the wicked witch of the west...
My ring finger is the same colour as the ruby red slippers...
and, my pinky is to represent the stripy socks of the witch...

Day Twenty-Six: Water Marbled

Now, I love nail polish, I love painting my nails, and I love trying out new designs...
but water marbling is just something I struggle with!

Today's challenge took me a while, and I decide to choose to do "feature" nails instead of marbling all my nails...

I'm pretty pleased with them... but I know I could do better with some practice...

what do you think?





Make sure to check out the other epic water marbling nails!

Day Twenty-Five: Christmas!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
The Internet doesn't really seem to care for Christmas... everything just keeps on going, online shops are still open, and facebook suddenly becomes the "this is a substitute Christmas card"
But for today (and this is pre-posted, that's right I'm not online on Christmas day) here are my nails...

Today's nails are...
Pretty Average Christmas Trees...

Day Twenty-Three: Inspired by Fashion...

Today's challenge was one I have been looking forward to!

I love fashion... and there's so many funky new designs, patterns and fabrics I'm loving at the moment! 

One of my favourite's being Camilla and Marc...

aren't this dressed, tops, skirts and outfits totally beautiful?

I loved this collection so much I just had to do this for my nails! 


and don't they match nicely :) 






(I was hoping the pink would look a bit brighter... like the pink of the tops and skirts in the Camilla and Marc collection)

Day Twenty-Two: Spotty gradient...

So this is a bit of a spiced up gradient...

I tend to think that I've done the gradient look enough times...
and I do really love gradient manicures! 
but for this challenge I wanted something a little different...
and thus,
Spotty Gradient...

Like?

I used:
Revlon (my newest) Dreamer (for the base) 
Kleancolour Neon sapphire and Australis (TBC) for the dots

Day Nineteen: Rainbow nails!!!!



Photobucket
Rainbow nails yeah?


I was thinking, hmm, colourful, bright bright colours?...

Why not do a rainbow...
I'll admit it's not perfect, and it's a bit smudge-y... but actually I like that look, I feel like it looks more arty and old-school watercoloured...

I really like today's nails! 



some pretty cool colours:
Including: Revlon, Revlon Red; OPI (orange), a roll in the Hague; Sally Hansen, Yellow Mellow; Elf, Bright Green; Revlon, (blue) Royal; Revlon, No Shrinking Violet; and Revlon, Plum Attraction...

Day Seventeen: My matching outfit...

Photobucket

Today is one of my favourite challenges:
Matching to my outfit!

I chose one of MyLove's favourite dresses..
Isn't it cute!? I love the floral pattern, and it's a really nice slimming fit
Nipped in at the waist, to give me shape, and flowey in the skirt, to nicely cover my flabby areas...

And my manicure matches! 
It was actually surprisingly easy and quick.
At first I was really disapointed with my manicure, the "flowers" are sploggy white, red and pink blotches and  I didn't think they really resembled flowers at all..
However, once I held them up to my skirt, and put the photo next to the photo of my outfit I was really pleased...
Do you like them too?


As for my outfit...
Dress: City Chic
Cardigan: Glassons
