August Tri Polish Challenge Day 4

Image
The final day of this month's challenge and the weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter. This look was inspired by a comment made by Angie over at Our Painted World http://ourpaintedworld.wordpress.com/2013/08/22/august-tri-polish-challenge-mani-2/

 It might be a little early but here are some Autumn/Fall leaves.

More details after the jump.

I simplified this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5by8-8m2uM design by Robin Moses to something more on my current level.

I can't believe August is almost over! I've got a couple of more detailed looks to post over the next couple of day but today's mani is a nice quick, simple one.

August Tri Polish Challenge Day 2

For day 2 of the August Tri Polish Challenge I had a go at painting with polish rather than my usual go to acrylic paint.

David Bowie Impressionist Concept Nails

On 13 August I went along to Eden Court Theatre in Inverness to watch a live stream from the V&A Museum in London of David Bowie Is... a look through the exhibition of costumes, artwork and various other artifacts from the archives.  The theatre got a mention at the start of the broadcast as the most northerly and the audience in the cinema cheered.  To celebrate this I created a mani inspired by my experience of David Bowie over the years.

This is my own simplistic take on the fabulous ArcadiaNailArt's Magical Forest Tim Burton Inspired Nails http://youtu.be/QXmK_mA237g.

More details and lots more pics (I painted both hands again!) after the break.


MSMD Monday - Emily's Army

Image
I took a few of my nail things with me when I went away on holiday recently.  As we were staying with friends it made it easy to set up a little nail station and start painting to get us all ready for a night out.

While we were away we went to see a young American band called Emily's Army on the last night of their UK tour at the Garage in Islington, London.  I was inspired by the album artwork for their latest album Lost at Seventeen and translated this into a bit of nail art. Emily's Army - Lost at Seventeen Artwork

Just a quick post to finish off the July tri-polish challenge.  This is a look that the Nailasaurus is creating a lot at the moment and can be seen if you click here.

July Tri-Polish Challenge Day 3

I had these pictures taken and was planning to set them up to post before I went away on holiday.  Unfortunately I wasn't quite as organised as I wanted to be and the posts were never written.  I'm playing catch up now so should have a few interesting things for you over the next few days.

This was just a quick mani using the chosen colours for the tri-polish challenge Barry M Cyan Blue, Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream and Barry M Mint Green.
