Happy Easter

Image
As I'm not religious, Easter for me means creme eggs in multi packs in the supermarket.

This design was suggested to me by a colleague at work who had seen it on the facebook page of a local nail bar. You can see the design here: https://www.facebook.com/279377018743419/photos/pb.279377018743419.-2207520000.1398016565./832146996799749/?type=3&theater.

This is my version of the Creme Egg splat design.

Lacquer Legion - Reinvention

Image
This theme had me a bit puzzled but I while watching tv I was struck with an idea.  This is less about me reinventing a design and more about where I am at in my life.  I'm reinventing myself from the 80s, back when I had time to think about make up and nail polish.  In this vein I thought bright colours and bold print and came up with a tiger stripe design over a bright yellow (very 80s).

Film Noir Nails

Image
On 24 January I went along to a screening of an independent British film called Emulsion (http://www.emulsionthemovie.co.uk/).  It's a very stylish film noir with a fantastic twist at the end and I left feeling inspired.

Image
This was a difficult one because I had to choose favourites.  I cheated a little bit as I used acrylic paint as well but my 3 favourite polishes are in there.

I've skipped over a few prompts as I'm not happy with the designs I created.  I may post them up later but for now I'm just going to concentrate on sharing the ones I really liked before moving onto a new challenge and posting more regularly.

Next up a mani with the same pattern in 3 colours:

33 Day Challenge - New Technique

Image
It took me a little while to think of something I hadn't already tried and then I realized I hadn't used the saran wrap technique.  This was really easy to do and I rather like the look of the finished effect so I think this will be one I will be using quite a bit in the future.

33 Day Challenge - Colour you own the most of

Image
This past year my polish collection has grown at a rather rapid rate.  However I seem to have bought an equal amount of colours but pink won out by one polish.

33 Day Challenge - Inspired by Europe

A bit late but I am getting around to posting up the manis I did for the 33 Day Challenge.

I chose Venice as the inspiration for the Europe theme.
