Welcome to another week of my nail challenge. This week has got a bit trickier, but I’m happy with most of my designs. Have a look and see what you think!
Day 9: Rainbow
Converse Nails! They’re not perfect but not bad for a first attempt I reckon. I think I need to grow my nails a bit more, they’d look fab on mid-length oval nails. Will be trying these out again for sure. I used Boots 17 ‘Knockout Red’ (thumb), Models Own ‘Lemon Meringue’ (index finger), Boots 17 ‘Orange Soda’ (middle finger), Missguided ‘Misstique’ (ring finger), Max Factor ‘Purple Haze’ (pinky). Details: white toes are Boots 17 ‘Mini Skirt’; silver rings are Fearne Cotton for Boots ‘Silver’; black details are Models Own WAH Nail Art Pen in Black; laces are Models Own WAH Nail Art Pen in White.
Day 10: Gradient
Simple pink gradient using the sponging technique. I like this one better than the blue I did a couple of weeks ago. I did this on bare nails so it has created a sheer effect. I used Nails Inc ‘New York’ (bright pink) and Nails Inc ‘Candy’ (lighter pink).
Day 11: Polka Dots
I didn’t take much care over this one so it’s a little uneven but I like the colour combo. I used Max Factor ‘Cool Jade’ (background) and Barry M ‘Foil Effects Gold’ (spots).
Day 12: Stripes
Tiger stripes grr! I really like this one. Again, this was the first time I had tried tiger stripes so I went for a very traditional orange and black combo but I’m keen to try out other colours once I have this challenge out of the way! I used Nails Inc ‘Candy Orange’ and Models Own WAH Nail Art Pen in Black.
Day 13: Animal Print
Well as I did tiger yesterday, I went for a trusty ol’ leopard print. This is a ‘night out leopard’. Very glam. I used Barry M ‘Foil Effects Gold’ and Barry M ‘ Gold Glitter’ as the base, China Glaze ‘Harvest Moon’ for the dots and Models Own WAH Nail Art Pen in Black for the details.
Day 14: Flowers
Another new design for me! Kinda vintage-y roses. This one needs more practice, don’t look at the index finger! I used Collection 2000 ‘Button Moon’ (background), OPI ‘Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot’ (bright pink), Nails Inc ‘Candy’ (light pink accents), Rimmel ‘Block Your Green’ (leaves).
Day 15: Delicate Print
Is this cheating? Didn’t think I could handle a delicate print myself so this is a very pretty water transfer. I used Nails Inc ‘Warwick Avenue’ and Geisha Girls Water Transfer from Hail the Nails.
Ooh some of these pictures are very fuzzy – sorry! Click here to see my Week One of this challenge and the full list of what else to expect over the next two weeks. Looking forward to get cracking on the tribal print and galaxy nails for sure!
