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 !

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 9 – Rainbow

For this one, I was inspired by Polish Alcoholic’s Day 3 (Green) mani – such a simple concept, but so stunning !

I didn’t pull it off quite as well as she did, but it is a great way to use lots of different colours in a mani, and I was quite pleased with how it came out (though the orange was a bit thin in places).

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 3 – Green

Well, I feel really intimidated putting my link amongst your gorgeous nail art, ladies ! So I’ve had a big glass of rosé … Here goes !

We all know that there’s just something about gold and green, right?

So this might not look as great in life as it did in my head (hey, it’s often the case, right?), but I went for a circuit board mani :

Butterfly Mani/Nail Art

Hello again everyone!

Even though I’m in France this year for Christmas and the New Year, so not with my family, I’m still very busy with going out to see people ! Since this has turned me into a social butterfly (I’m normally not especially sociable, I have a huge commute to work so it’s nice to spend time at home when I can !), this, along with some beautiful, vivid shades from China GlazeTempestPassion in the Pacific and Sexy Silhouette, got me in the mood for a bit of butterfly nail art.
