Pre Spring Challenge – Day 7 – Pastel Tape Mani

I’ve missed a couple of days out from the Pre Spring Challenge, realistically I was never going to manage to do my nails on a Friday – Friday is pub day, so yesterday I had an aborted attempt at combining the themes of Sky and Sun. It was such a disaster I don’t think it will be seeing the light of day.

So we resume with Day 7 – Pastel and Taping. This was my second try and I’m really pleased with it. It’s not often you see my naked nails, but I spent a good long time buffing and moisturising this afternoon so I think they’re presentable.

This is so simple and for once I’m happy with my work, yey for pastels and tape.

The colours I used are:

Orange – Love & Beauty – Neon Orange (it’s really not neon)
Lilac – Essie – Nice Is Nice
Pink – Color Club – I Believe In Amour
Yellow – OPI – Fiercely Fiona
Blue – Color Club – Take Me To Your Chateau
Grey – Sally Hansen – Dorien Grey





Halloween Part 1

I’d like to think I’m ever so British and haven’t been sucked in to Halloween, but in truth my visit to Poundland for decorations took place weeks ago and you will be seeing a spooky cake before the week is out.

So in keeping with the time of year, here are some Halloween nails:




Now I’m terrible at stamping, mainly because I can’t line up the stamp on the nail, but I figured if I made them intentionally lopsided it would solve the problem. A side effect of that is that now I’m not sure if you can tell they’re spiders, but I’m proud of my best attempt yet.

To create these I used:

love & beauty by Forever 21 Glow In The Dark nail polish in Neon Orange (this categorically does not glow in the dark)
Orly Liquid Vinyl (black stringy bits)
Konad Special Polish in black
Sinful Colors Snow Me White

What do you reckon?
