Girly gothic grunge…

Hello out there, well I’ve been a somewhat slack blogger,  I swear the days do not have enough hours in them! Or maybe I am totally crap at managing my time, or both! So today  I have a simple stamping mani, that I actually had in my head for once. I’ve started with Color Club “Cool Breeze” as the base. Over that I’ve stamped very subtle stripes with Ulta 3 “Gold digger” using Messy Mansion plate MM06. Then I stamped in black the skeleton portrait from BM-612, and the ornate patterns are from The Bridal Nail 06 plate. Adding OPI Matte top coat and a couple of gold studs from Born Pretty store to finish it off.

I’ve started a photograpy course…. can you tell? Photography has always been a struggle for me, so I know I can’t get any worse! Oh and if you’re looking for Greek pottery, you’re in the right place, its just been awhile 😉

Ornate pink stamping..

I’m at a loss for a funky titled name for this post. I don’t know about you but I’m sick of Xmas manis!!!!!!! But then again I can’t say I like Xmas too much, I always have to work and its hectic. The roads are busy, the shops are busy, people go a little crazy. If you don’t have lots of family or friends you end up feeling lonely. When asked where my Xmas spirit is, I usually reply…”I drank it!”  Anyway onto to the nails…

For these I stamped with my own pink/magenta (unnamed) polish over a black base using Moyou london plates 07 and 08 from the Fashionista collection. The fleur de lis 3-D nail “stud” is from Born Pretty I think. Stay sane til Xmas!

Pink Halloween…

Well it seems this is a popular look this time of year! In my browsing of nail art today, many designs popped up like this. A gradient with a spooky scene. I wanted to create a scene of bats flying from the woods, across the suburbs to invade the city, or something like that!

Pink Halloween

I started with a couple of coats of Color Club “Jackie Oh!”, then sponged some paler no name pink on the tips. Then working from the middle up I sponged Color Club “Jack ‘n Jill” and “Ulterior Motive”. Finishing around the cuticle line with Chi Chi “Sophisticated Sassy”.  Then I stamped with black using plate BBF 02 for the house and the bats. BM-224 for the spooky trees and plate Fun 2 for the city skyline. I love pink and black together!

Day 12 stripes…

Well we are nearly half way through the challenge! This is another first as I’ve never done a tape mani before.

Day 12 stripes 2

Over a base of pale pink, I applied some tape (cut with fancy scrap-booking scissors) and painted in the bright pink. Then since the first layer took sooo long to dry I painted the black and silver in freehand. Added some acrylic gems, a stud, topcoat and was done! Quick and easy!
