So again this was a result of wanting to use the same colours for the past few days. This is a saran wrap or cling film manicure in which I put a base colour of OPI’s ‘Steady As She Rose’ on my nails and waited for it to completely dry, then I painted over the top with ‘Sparrow Me The Drama’ and quickly using a ball of cling film dabbed it onto the wet nail polish. I then topped it off with Seche Vite.
So I haven’t done a galaxy mani in a while because my first one was such a success I never tried it again funnily enough, so here was my second attempt at galaxy nails and to be honest I didn’t really like them but I know other people did.
I used OPI’s ‘Lady In Black’ ‘Alpine Snow’ and ‘You’re Such A Budapest’ and Barry M’s ‘Blueberry Ice’ with a makeup sponge.
So for the 25th of the nail art April challenge the theme was gold or silver, so I decided to use a bit of both in this simple manicure.
Firstly I painted my nails using OPI’s ‘I Theodora You’ and topping it with Rimmel’s glitter topcoat ‘Disco Gold’, I then painted my tips in Barry M’s ‘Foil Gold’ and topped that off with Mavala’s ‘Sparkling Gold’ and finally finished it all off with Seche Vite.
For this months nail challenge on day 22 the theme was Earth day as guess what it was Earth Day.
So I decided to do a space view of the Earth, the recycling sign and also a Union Jack, to show my love of my country who recycles almost everything!
I used Barry M’s ‘Emerald Green’ for the pinkie and thumb nail, and for the dark green used on the Earth and recycle sign, I also used 17 ‘Juicy’ for the recycle sign. I then used OPI’s ‘Eurso Euro’, ‘Big Apple Red’ and ‘Alpine Snow’ for the Union Jack and remainder of the Earth. I then topped my thumb and pinkie with OPI’s ‘Lights Of The Emerald City’.
I created all three of my accent nails but freehand painting them on with a small detailing paint brush.
For this months challenge day 16 was match your outfit of the day and I was wearing one of my favourite tips from Zara which was inspired by Victoria Beckhams cat dresses.
So I used OPI’s ‘My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours’ as it was the perfect orange/red colour and then I hand painted the cat onto my middle nail using OPI’s ‘Alpine Snow’ and ‘Lady In Black’.
