This was my manicure for day 31 of the nail art march challenge pastels theme.

I used Mavala’s ‘Fresh Melon’ on my pinkie, Barry M’s ‘Blueberry Ice’ on my ring finger, OPI’s ‘Sparrow Me The Drama’ on my middle finger, Rimmel’s ‘Marshmallow Heaven’ on my index, and Barry M’s ‘Mint Green’ on my thumb.

I then used my Orly Matte Topcoat and once that had dried I used OPI’s ‘Bring On The Bling’ by using a small paint brush and creating the pyramid shape.

These nails were created by using Barry M’s ‘Matte White’ as a base and then used OPI’s ‘Sparrow Me The Drama’ and ‘Mermaid Tears’ for the gradient. These colours are both from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection and are beautiful on their own and together and were provide a great spring time colour scheme.

I then topped the gradient off with OPI’s ‘Lights Of The Emerald City’.

For this manicure I used OPI’s ‘My Vampire Is Buff’ as a base which is a gorgeous cream colour and ‘Hands Off My Kielbasa’ which are both from the Euro Central Collection.

Easter Egg Nails

These are my Easter egg nails for the bank holiday weekend! I thought my almond shaped nails were the perfect egg shape so I decided to do a decorated egg look.

I used all OPI polishes including ‘Sparrow Me The Drama’ ‘My Vampire Is Buff’ ‘Neon Orange’ ‘Neon Purple’ ‘Big Apple Red’ and ‘Can’t Find My Czechbook’.

I created different sized dots and stripes and chevron with the various colours.

I used OPI’s ‘Mermaid Tears’ as a base for these nails as it matched a top I wore on Good Friday 🙂 I then used ‘Sparrow Me The Drama’ and ‘Ali’s big Break’ for the flowers and used Barry M’s ‘Emerald Green’ for the leaves.

I used a dotting tool for the flowers and a small paint brush for the leaves.

For day 28 of the nail art march challenge the theme was floral so I decided to use Barry M’s ‘Blue moon as a base as its a gorgeous pale blue.

Then I used a small paint brush and used OPI’s ‘Sparrow Me The Drama’ for the base of the roses, ‘If You Moust You Moust’ for the darker pink and Barry M’s ‘Matte White’ for the highlighting detail. I then used 17’s’Juicy’ and Barry M’s ‘Emerald Green’ for the leaves.

This was a really successful manicure and I was very pleased with how it turned out.

This is a mani that was very popular a couple of months ago and I never tried it so as I wanted to use these colours together I thought it was better late than never.

I used OPI’s ‘You’re Such A Budapest’, ‘Anti Bleak’ and ‘Vant To Bite My Neck’.
