Eeep! It’s August Already! #OMD3nails

Well August has rather crept up on me! and so has the end of the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge. As I post this, you still have a couple of days to get any last entries in, so go-go-go!

As for me, I have 3 nail arts that I did for the challenge, and never got around to posting (I am so undisciplined in my blogging!)

Fire

I used the gorgeous Wild at Heart by Anny – a pinky-coppery-gold duochrome nail polish. Two coats of that over my clear base coat, and I followed that with some free-hand flame shapes, with A England Camelot.

Jewels

I thought of emeralds for my ‘jewel’ nail art. So my main polish is Android  by Dance Legend. I also used ILNP MutagenA England Camelot and a Barry M Nail Art Pen in White for my ring finger.

Love

I wanted to avoid being too girly about this theme! So I used Denim Delight and Million Stars by Gosh as my base colours – the stamping is a Vivid Lacquer plate, with pretty sketchy hearts that I layered up over each other.

Eeep! I haven’t posted for over a week!
Sorry about that, guys – I got a new spindle to play with, and fluff + wet nails… well that’s not an equation I want to solve!

Anyhow, I’m glad to see that OMD3 is still rolling on – and here are my watermelon nails, which was for day 12 sheepish grin

Polish Used – Bright Pink – China Glaze Mediterranean Charm / Dark Green – Illamasqua Muse / Aqua Blue – China Glaze Aqua Baby

OMD3 Nail Art Challenge – Book #OMD3nails

by
IMG_6840

I’m a real bookworm, so it might sound surprising that I found it hard to do the ‘book’ prompt for this challenge !

I decided in the end to do newspaper nails, with a base coat of the fantastic white Butter London Cotton Buds, then I realised I didn’t have any rubbing alcohol (or vodka!) around… so this is done with just water. It looks a little faded, but I think the effect looks pretty good anyway :)

OMD3 Nail Art Challenge – Cats #OMD3nails

Hiya! here’s one of my catch-up manis. I was inspired by this fantastic tutorial by Pack a Punch Polish. It’s simple and cute, and I decided to do two ‘cat face’ nails, and use my Vivid Lacquer stamping plate for some kitty paw prints. Since my cats are grey and ginger, I used Elephant Walk and Bare if you Dare as base colours, both by China Glaze.

IMG_6874

Hiya! Life seems to be conspiring to make me run late in this challenge! Don’t worry though, I have done the nail art, I’ll just have to do some quick posting to catch up :)

Today’s prompt is ‘fish’ – I picked my koi design from the VL012 stamping plate, and used the bubbles from the same plate too.

Polish used : Anny Something Blue (light blue) / China Glaze Aqua Baby (dark aqua) / A England Holy Grail

OMD3 Nail Art Challenge – Glitter #OMD3nails

by
IMG_6785

Here’s (at last!) my glitter mani for OMD3 Nail Art Challenge.

I used NCLA polish for my base colours – Dead-End Gorgeous, and a gradient done with Rush Hour and Clear the Runway. Then I combined careful strokes of Shimmer Polish, using Taylor and Vanessa, to make a vampy, elongating and simple glittery mani :)

OMD3 Nail Art Challenge – V-Shape #OMD3nails

by
IMG_6719

Good evening! I’m skipping yesterday’s prompt (glittery) for now – yesterday was Gym Night (and fitness takes priority over nails), and although I did prepare a mani, I’m not totally happy with it. don’t worry – I will catch up!

So today’s prompt is “V-Shape” – I decided to do something a little different, and I used water decals in strips of animal patterns to make my chevrons – the base colour is Catwalk Queen, a gorgeous pale, peachy matte polish by NCLA.
