OMD3 Gallery (picture heavy!)

by

Hello Hello!

I’m such a Bad Blogger recently. But I did sit down and make a gallery of some of the fantastic entries that we had for July’s OMD3 Challenge! There were a huge amount to choose from, so I tried to mix it up here. There were also many great entries that were hard to link to (if the picture is very small, for example), so do pop over to the reference page and browse around the gallery links there (there’s some little blue guys you can click on to see each theme).

These are all pictures that were entered in the galleries, so I hope you don’t mind me sharing! If any links are broken or you would like the link to your site removed, just pop me a little message :)

Zoya Sailor x Big Ruby Nail Tattoos (Garden Designs)

by
IMG_6982

Hi guys!

Today I decided it was about time I did some nail art again :) so I got the boyfriend to help me pick a polish. He went for ‘the pretty purple’ Zoya Sailor. Which made me laugh, because I really see it as an inky indigo blue… But what’evs!

To add a summery, flowery – but very subtle – touch, I used Big Ruby Nail Tattoos (the Garden Designs pack) near my cuticles.

Eeep! It’s August Already! #OMD3nails

by
Sketchy Header

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.

OMD3 Nail Art Challenge – Watermelon #OMD3nails

by
IMG_6828

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

PicMonkey Collage

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.

OMD3 Nail Art Challenge – Fish #OMD3nails

by
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 :)
