July Tri Polish Challenge Day 2

Image
Whew it has been a busy old week this week and I'm frantically playing catch up.

I loved the look I did for day 2 of this month's tri polish challenge and ended up wearing it for a whole week.

Delft Nails

I've been having a play with my acrylic paints again! I thought I would take the colours from a Delft tile and make them work on nails. This was the result:

My goodness, I can't believe it is that time again.  I've been working so hard and lost track of time, I thought the challenge started next week, just as well I was a bit more organised than usual.

My chosen polishes for this month are:

Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream
Barry M Cyan Blue
Barry M Mint Green

I was considering saving this for Monday/July's Tri Polish Challenge but I just can't wait to share it with you.

I was browsing Pinterest for inspiration when I cam upon this adorable little number http://pinterest.com/pin/404549978998030788/.  I gave it a go and this was the finished result:


More details and an alternative take on the design after the break.

Barbed Wire and Roses

Image
I had a colour combination for a dark mani that I wanted to do but I wasn't sure about what form it would take.  After a bit of internet browsing I hit upon the idea of barbed wire and roses, but, everyone else used stamps to create the look and I didn't have anything suitable.  No problem I thought I'll just paint the design.  This was the result:


Details, more pics and a bit of a variation on the idea after the break.

This is a look that was inspired by a couple of Robin Moses designs.

Wednesday Work Nails - I have a herring problem

Image
This week I have been looking at my untried polishes.  I picked up OPI - I have a herring problem from the sale shelf in my local Sally's a while back when I was looking for a neutral colour to wear to work.

MSMD Monday - Bright Leopard Print

Image
It seems everyone has done leopard print...except me.  This look isn't really inspired by any one person or image it was more a feeling of everyone else has done this, why haven't I?
