Mani Monday – 31 Day Nail Challenge Week Three

Week three! Only one week and two days left. Nails are not damaged from all the polish changing but are a bit discoloured (I blame a very red Nails Inc polish – and my laziness when it comes to base coats). Loving some of the manis this week, wish I could keep them on for longer than one day! Let me know what you think:

Day 16: Tribal
Tried a couple of designs before I settled on this one. The others were more intricate, therefore too messy. I like this one, but I’ll build up my skills gradually untill I get to WAH levels of tribal awesomeness. I used Collection 2000 (or is it just Collection now?) ‘Hidden’ andΒ  Models Own WAH Nail Art Pen in White.

Day 17: Glitter
Amazing new glitter polishes from Barry M in shops now! This one is ‘Amethyst Glitter’, a mix of blue, silver, pink, purple and black round flecks in both small and tiny. Actually couldn’t stop staring at it! Layered here over a pink and purple base but it would be the same in three coasts with no base colour.

Day 18: Half Moons
Wow I love these! Going to try them with a sandy background for the leopard print next time. Very rockabilly chic! I used Nails Inc ‘Milan’ (red), Nails Inc ‘Lower Sloane Street’ (background), China Glaze ‘Foie Gras’ (spots) Models Own WAH Nails Art Pen in Black (outlines).

Day 19: Galaxies
Pretty pretty! I like how every time that you do galaxy nails you will get a different result. I’ve also seen people do pastel ones, or with orange and green so I’m keen to try this one more. For below I used Barry M ‘Black’ (base), China Glaze ‘Frostbite’ (metallic blue), OPI ‘Koala Bear-y’ (pink), Collection 2000 ‘Button Moon’ (light blue), OPI ‘Last Friday Night’ (blue glitter) and Boots 17 ‘Glitter Topcoat’ to finish.

Day 20: Water Marbled
Ugh I hate water marbling. It’s so inconsistent, sometimes it works out great, and other times it’s just a big old mess. This is one of the times its somewhere in the middle. The polishes spread on the water out, but weren’t very opaque. So this is a watercolour water marble. Sorry, couldn’t be bothered spending too much time on this one. I used Boots 17 ‘Mini Skirt’ (white) as a base coat and China Glaze ‘Frostbite’ (blue) and China Glaze ‘Coconut Kiss’ (purple) to marble.

Day 21: Inspired by a colour
So this one is inspired by one of my favourite nail polishes. It is ‘Denim’ by Nails Inc. I decided to take inspiration from the name and go for an acid wash look. I’ll post up a tutorial for this look in coming weeks, but really, just google it, there’s loads of tutorials out there already. I used Nails Inc ‘Denim’ (obv! Blue base) and Boots 17 ‘Mini Skirt’ (white) as well as Seche Vite for the topcoats.

Day 22: Inspired by a song
Is er… missing. Really didn’t want to take the previous mani off! I will either post it through the week or tag it on to next Monday’s super post.
