Day 14 – Recreate

I love the idea of recreating another mani from the challenge for the last day ! My inspiration was 9 to 5 Nails’ Day 4 – Tulip Mani. I’m pretty tired tonight, we just got back from a weekend back home in Blighty, which I shall tell you more about another time ! It was a very long drive home, and the apartment was a bit of a state. The cats seem pretty happy to see us, which is unusual ! So we’ve cleaned up and unpacked and I just thought I’d put up my last Challenge Post before we order sushi and I have a nice, hot shower.

I used a quick lick of CG Ooh la la pink, then CG Designer Satin; I tried to vary the thickness of the black outline to add a bit of interest, but I think I messed this up on 2 counts – (1) this looks much better on round-ended nails and (2) I didn’t bring the tulips far enough down my nails. Never mind, I’ve learned for next time !

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 13 – Sponging

I am so sorry for all of the spamming !

I’ll be back on Sunday, so I’ll post the very last mani then, but since I don’t know how much internet connection I’ll have until then, here’s my post for day 13!

The theme is sponging, and I have seen this mani in pastel colours with white dots before, and couldn’t wait to try it out. I also wanted to see what Lapiz of Luxury and Butler Please (both by Essie) looked like together, and the answer is – very pretty !

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 :

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

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 11 – Beach

Well, I’m going away until Sunday, so I’m afraid I’m about to spam you all with my last manis for the Pre-Spring Challenge ! Sorry in advance, I’m worried that if I schedule the posts, the links might not work properly.

I thought I had such a great idea for this one, but actually it didn’t come out great !

Maybe it would have been better with a little black liner around the swimsuits?
