Nail Art Ideas Linkup – Themes for April

It is with heavy hearts that we announce this. We are discontinuing the Nail Art Ideas Linkup challenge that we’ve been running since there hasn’t been enough interest.

Hold up, we are totally kidding! April Fools!!!

Did we fool you, or are you too clever for our tactics?? Not a chance that we would discontinue the #NAILLINKUP! The only month we are skipping is July. Because that’s when we host our huge 2nd annual 31 day OMD nail challenge! More info on our prompts and prizes in the coming months.
Let’s get back to April! It’s one of the rare months where we can squeeze 5 prompts in instead of 4. For your nail art pleasure, here are our ideas-

Nail_Art_Ideas_Linkup_April_2014_

RAIN (week 1) There’s an old adage that says April showers bring May flowers. Well, maybe not in all parts of the world. But still, we all know about rain! Let’s see your nails painted with rain, droplets, umbrellas, or however you want to interpret this theme!

BIRDS (week 2) Did you know that April 8th is officially Draw a Picture of a Bird Day? Let’s ‘draw’ birds on our nails to celebrate this weird holiday! Of course, you can use a stamping kit or some decals if you’d like.

EASTER (week 3) Bunnies, colored eggs, candies and green grass! We expect to see lots of cute nails for this prompt.

DIAMONDS (week 4) What is the birthstone for April? Diamonds. And we can’t think of a prettier way to decorate your nails. After all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

DOTTICURE (week 5) We like to throw a nail art ‘technique’ in the mix every month and polka dots are a classic!

Here are the N.A.I.L. themes:

*you will not get a bag full of gold if you participate in N.A.I.L.

STAMPING (week 1)- Get out your nail stamping plates and share your one-of-a-kind design! If you don’t have a nail stamping kit then you can stamp something else on your nails. We are flexible.

AQUA (week 2)- Aquamarine is the birthstone for March babies. But really this is an excuse to dig out some of our aqua nail polishes. Honestly, aqua is gorgeous, right?

ST PATRICKS DAY (week 3)- Shamrocks, rainbows, pots of gold, green, green, and more green! We’re sure you can come up with some fun nails for this holiday!

SPRING FLOWERS (week 4)- For many of us it’s inching towards Spring. And who doesn’t love flowers? This theme will get you in the mood for some sunshiney weather.

Announcing the February Nail Art Ideas Linkup Themes!

Hey N.A.I.L. Challengers!! It’s officially February so Brijits Digits, Craftynail, and Eeeek! Nail Polish! have some new themes for you as part of the Nail Art Ideas Linkup. You guessed it- there’s a Valentine’s theme thrown in there. But we promise we won’t get all ‘saccharine sweet’ on you! More on that after the jump! Let’s see the February prompts, shall we?

RED (week 1)- Let’s get back to basics. Red nails! They’re classy and sexy. Show us some nail art using the color red or maybe share your favorite red nail polish with us. This theme is also inspired by Wear Red Day (February 7th) to help raise awareness for heart disease in women.

VALENTINES DAY (week 2)- A Valentines Day theme is basically ‘a given’ for February, but you can get as romantic or as dark as you want! If you love flowers or hearts it’s your time to shine. But if the sight of Cupid makes you want to choke someone… well, then let’s see those gloom and doom designs too!

GRADIENT (week 3)- Gradients are a nice basic nail art technique with so much room for interpretation. You can use different tools, different colors, the possibilities are endless. Show us what you’ve got!

GLITTER (week 4)- The life of a nail polish addict would not be the same without it, yet our glitter polishes sit there unused far too often. Pick through your stash and find your most gorgeous bottle. Flip it upside down now so the glitter mixes up and settles on top. Then you’ll be all prepped for glitter week!

Here are the rules for Nail Art Ideas Linkup (N.A.I.L.)……

  • Do one of the weekly themes, or do them all. It’s flexible!
  • The dates for each week are only suggestions- you can post your nails whenever you want in February.
  • The nail art ideas/themes are open to interpretation so you can create whatever kind of design you want! Stamps, stickers, acrylics- anything goes!
  • We encourage all nail enthusiasts to join in no matter what platform you use; blog, FB, IG, Tumblr, etc…

  • Lastly but most importantly, don’t forget to share your nail pics via the inlinkz below.

GOT Polish Challenge – Stripes

Butter London Chimney Sweep GOT Polish Striping nail art

Today’s theme for the GOT Polish Challenge is Stripes! I decided this would be a great opportunity to use Chimney Sweep by Butter London. I bought this polish a year and a day ago…. And have never opened it o_O

Silly me, because it’s beautiful! And despite being a metallic, it doesn’t streak at all, and dries pretty fast. I used 2 coats over a clear basecoat to make this negative-space striped mani.  Continue reading

GOT Polish Challenge – Pink

Yes I’m back! Back in….. errr, pink actually 🙂

I have a nice red scar running down the side of my hand, but with some awkward posing and strategic placement of my watermark, I think I can blog again now!

So you’ve probably already heard about the GOT Challenge by the Crumpet? Well, the idea is to use an old (+1 year) polish from your stash and do a nail art every Thursday. This week the theme is pink, so I grabbed Designer Satin by China Glaze. I’ve had this polish since May 2012 – when UK suppliers were still allowed to send polish overseas. I used to order from Venus Nail Supplies – but they can’t ship overseas anymore 😦
