OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 22. Animal Themed

You’ll have to excuse my frazzled brain. We’re into a third week of this heatwave, and although I love the sun, I’m starting to find the lack of sleep a bit hard to cope with. So be prepared for a seriously abstract mani, haha!

I have issues with birds; I’ve always been scared of them. The fluttering and flying makes me nervous, and they just look so strange, and sort of gross. But this weekend, whilst I was sweating it out in the garden, I actually enjoyed watching some sparrows dancing overhead. There’s a clan of about 8 that have been dancing around in our garden (sooo funny, to see our indoor cats watching them!) and it was fascinating to watch these funny, chirruping little balls of brown feathers suddenly become gracious and athletic, diving around in the sky – it was as if they were totally transformed !

So I really wanted to do a bird mani tonight, and had a funky parrot on my VL 001 plate to test out !

Pool Side Mani – Metallic Ripples!

This is the last post for today, I promise! I have to get this one in today before the competition closes, otherwise I would have held off to save you the spam 😉

So you might say I over thought this mani a little – you’d be right !

I wanted a mani that didn’t just make me think of the pool side, but that I’d like to wear by the side of the pool, too, and I came up with a metallic ripple mani 🙂

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 21. Stamping

I’m so glad I had this one pre-prepared ! (there’s no point denying it, my fingers are their old colour and my nails aren’t so long)

I had a French mani for work one monday, and on my way home (I have a very long commute) couldn’t decide what to do with it ! Sabrina suggested flowers, and I decided I would stamp them to pre-prepare a mani for the challenge 😀

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 20. 3D

Whoops! I’m behind again…

In my defence, I have a very good reason. You see, we’re having a huge heat wave at the moment, which (1) makes a lot of my nail polish a nightmare to work with. And (2) means I’m not happy unless I’m getting a tan ! you’ll have to forgive me – and I promise, I am using SPF !

You’ll also have to forgive me that I’m struggling to get my colours right now, the tan’s developing on a daily basis, and I can’t quite keep up with what colour my skin is supposed to be, lol

The challenge is hotting up now, so this is the last opportunity I can see for keeping it simple !

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 12 – Stripes

I do love dark nail polish, and I realised that I haven’t had a very dark mani in this challenge yet, so I grabbed one of my Christmas Box Sets that my boyfriend got me from Models Own and my Models Own Pro in black and got to work with the striping tape !

I’m so happy with how this one came out, though I did do it at the end of a long night, so admittedly was a bit slapdash – as my cuticles will confirm :

Day 12 - Stripes

The polishes all have a bit of a metallic sheen to them, and I just love how the flash brings that out :
