40 Great Nail Art Ideas- 3 Shades of Purple

Hi there Everyone!!! Todays challenge is 3 Shades of Purple and the prompt is 3D embellishment.
No im not one really for a lot of 3D anything on my nails. I tend to know them off within minutes of applying and glueing on studs bows and anything else more than about 2 mm thick.

Anyways, So I decided to grab some Pretty Serious Cosmetics purple( cosmic comet) and stamp with my new bundle monster plate. and to be honest it kind of turned out pretty meh. So I stuck some 3D bows on it and took some pics.

Not being happy with this I tried again. This time I used some OPI polishes to do a gradient. ( purple Palazo pants, lost my bikini in molokini, a grape affair) then stamped with a hit the bottle purple polish. and finally used a different 3D bow. I was much more happy with that finished effect!!!!

Heaps better!!!!!

Sometimes I struggle with these prompts as I did this week. but the end result is ok I think :)

Make sure you check out everyone else's manis this week!!!!!

Until next time.....

40 Great Nail Art Ideas- Things that Fly

*Press Sample.

Hi there everyone!
So .....School holidays...... 6 weeks of a 5 yr old and a 14 yr old constantly fighting and shouting at each other........ man.....Im looking forward to the 2nd Feb!  
It has been super hard to get any kind of nail art done let alone blog it! I sat for one day over xmas and swatched 7 collections and i have yet had the time to sit and edit and post them :( I only managed to get this done because I sat the 5 yr old in front of the netflix box!

So the theme was things that fly. Well in my house many thing almost fly...usually across the room when the kids are doing my head in! but in all seriousness the main thing that fly are birds. So i decided to do a quick many with some foils from the Born Pretty Store they were super cute and worked perfectly with the theme.

I used Celestial Cosmetics Goblin Orchid on my nails (2 coats) then popped a thin coat of nail foil adhesive on my nails for the foil to stick on. I pressed on the foil once the glue was dry and had holo feathers!!!!!


The nails looks pretty cool in the sun!!! tho i think ill try it over black next time!

The foils are only $1.57 a roll and you get HEAPS for that price!!!! you can find them HERE
