November Nailart Challenge-Day 26-Thankful Nails

126

As in the UK we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving I decided to do some themed nails of what I am thankful for, such as love and family. So in with that theme I wanted to do some vintage tattoo nails with tattoo lettering and a heart.

I didn’t use a base on my nails as at the moment I have Gelish Hard Gel in Cover Pink overlays so the pink is the gel.

I used China Glaze’s ‘Liquid Leather’, ‘White On White’ and ‘Ruby Pumps’ and a small paintbrush for everything.

For the release of the new Hunger Games film Catching Fire I decided to do the mockingjay pin and some fiery cuticles.

I used China Glaze’s ‘Liquid Leather’ as a base, then acrylic paints for the fiery cuticles, which I layered on each colour in stripes down my nail.

Then I used OPI’s ‘A Woman’s Prague-ative’ and China Glaze’s ‘Mingle With Kringle’ for the pin.

November Nailart Challenge-Day 16-Floral Nails

As its the winter I wanted to make sure I didn’t do some summery floral nails so I decided to stick to dark polishes and some roses.

I used OPI’s ‘Lincoln Park After Dark’ on the majority of my nails and ‘A Grape Fit’ on my ring finger. I then used a dotting tool to create the roses in the corners of my nails using the opposite colour to the nail.

Then using China Glaze’s ‘White On White’ as a highlighter on the roses, and OPI’s ‘Jade Is The New Black’ for the leaves.

As usual I used Seche Vite Fast Drying Topcoat.

For nature nails I decided to do an autumn/winter theme as that is the season, so I used OPI’s ‘Did You Ear About Van Gogh’ as a base then ‘Rising Star’, ‘Take The Stage’, ‘The Show Must Go On’, ‘Ali’s Big Break’ and ‘Tease-y Does It’ all from the Burlesque collection for the autumn leaves on the bare tree branches.
