Pre Spring Challenge – Day 9 – Rainbow

I’ve got a bit off track with this challenge, it was my best friend’s last day at work on Thursday and all the hoopla surrounding that has got in the way a bit. I did actually do an ice-cream themed mani which I didn’t take pictures of, so I’ve decided to pick up where I left off and take the rest of the days in my own time.

So onto my rainbow themed manicure. If I’m honest I really couldn’t be bothered messing about with loads of bottles to do a full on rainbow, so instead I’ve taken inspiration from 80s UK kids TV show Rainbow. And specifically from Zippy. For anyone who isn’t familiar, this is Zippy from Rainbow:


And this is my interpretation:


Yeah, not working so much, is it..? I’m pleased with the idea, but not so much with the execution – if I were to do it again I think I’d try and fit his whole face on one nail. And I didn’t notice the terrible bubbling on my ring finger until I went to take pictures, no idea what happened there, but it doesn’t look nearly so bad in real life.

Well at least I’ve made it through another day!


Advent Nail Art Challenge Day 6 – White & Day 7 – Ornaments

Two birds with one stone today, a quick mani on my newly nubbified nails to get myself caught up with the advent calendar challenge.

My inspiration here is these Pantone baubles:


I say inspiration, I’ve copied them exactly…



You might spot on a couple of them where I experimented with adding a ring to the end of the baubles, I decided that just looked weird so I covered it over but it didn’t quite work on the red and yellow.

The white is Sally Hansen – White On and from left to right we’ve got:

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure – Grass Slipper
Barielle – Lemondrops
Orly – Ma Cherie
Bourjois – Bleu Violet
Bourjois – Bleu Model

I’ll see you back here tomorrow for something a bit more festive.
