31DC2014 Day 31: Honour Nails you Love

Hi everyone,
So for today's inspired by challenge (well, Honour Nails you Love), I decided to do my best to recreate a design by one of my favourite bloggers, Brit Nails. For those of you who haven't heard of Allie or her blog, she is a very talented nail artist. She creates great nails art and her swatches are just stunning - I don't think there's a colour which doesn't suit her long nail beds!
Anyway the design I decided to recreate is one called Geo Lines and here is my recreation:


I used Barry M Gelly CoconutModels Own HyperGel Turquoise Gloss and LA Colors Art Deco Nail Striper in Black

31DC2014 Day 30: Tutorial you love

Hi everyone,
so continuing with my little catch-up I though I'd post the penultimate design in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - a design inspired by a tutorial you love. As soon as I saw this prompt I knew I'd have to use one of Jessie from Nailed it NZ's tutorials because her designs and tutorials are just amazing!
I decided to go with Jessie's Converse nails (see tutorial here) because I found her tutorial for this design really useful, here's my recreation following her tutorial:


I used  Sinful Colors Island Coral, Models Own HyperGel Purple Glare, Models Own HyperGel Top Turquoise, Models Own  HyperGel Sundress, No7 Stand Back, Sinful Colors Snow Me White , Rimmel I love Lasting Finish Your Majesty and  LA Colors Art Deco Nail Striper in Black

31DC2014 Day 29: Supernatural

Hi everyone,
First of all I'd like to apolagise for not posting the last 3 posts for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I actually started University tiwards the end of the challenge and with freshers week and enrollment I was quite busy and I didn't have time to edit my posts. I did all of the designs and photographed them, I just didn't edit them and post them. Therefore over the next few days I shall post the remaining posts and a big roundup post towards the end of the week.
So for today's first prompt Supernatural (well day 29th's prompt) I was really stuck for ideas. I decided to go for fairies as my theme, but in the end I wasn't that happy with my result. 
Here is my design:


I used Seventeen Chateau and No7 Nail Striper in Silver

31DC2014 Day 27: Inspired by artwork

Hi everyone,
So today the theme is inspired by artwork. These inspired by prompts are actually a lot harder than I anticipated and once again I found it hard to decide on my inspiration. In the end I decided to go with Roy Lichtenstein, who is famous for his pop art style artwork. Here is my design:



I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White, No7 So Simple, Avon Nailwear Pro in Real Red, Barry M Nail Art Pen in Black, Fing'rs Heart2Art Catch So Greys, Models Own Nail Art Pen in Yellow, Models Own Nail Art Pen in Blue
