Navy and Gold Zig Zags (52 Week Challenge)

I made it to the end. This is post number fifty-two, the last one for the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge. The prompts were dark and grungey and/or zig zags. I chose zig zags, which are also quite dark. But not grungey! The base and plain nails are Chanel Fortissimo. This is a gorgeous […] Read more

Lilac, Violet and Purple Chevrons (52 Week Challenge)

I have some lilac, violet and purple chevrons for this week in the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge. Violet is one of the prompts, and the other is waterfall. I tried twice to create waterfall nails, and they were terrible both times. So this is the third manicure for this challenge. I don’t know […] Read more

Chanel Kaleidoscope With Geometric Stamping (52 Week Challenge)

This week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge calls for a water marble and/or your most precious polish. I have only just done a water marble, so I used my most precious polish, Chanel Kaleidoscope, with geometric stamping added. Chanel Kaleidoscope is my most precious polish because it’s the one that is probably worth the […] Read more

Red, Blue and Purple Water Marble (52 Week Challenge)

I’ve combined the two 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge prompts this week, for a red, blue and purple water marble manicure. I used Nella Milano polishes, which water marbled really well. They spread easily in the water and didn’t split or disperse when I dragged through them. I used The Rubinator (red), True Blue […] Read more

Grey Tweed Nails (52 Week Challenge)

The themes for this week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge are tweed and pale pink. I have done enough pink manicures recently, so I chose to do some grey tweed nails. To me, tweed is brown and smells of urine. (Yes, really! Google it!) But of course there are other types of tweed besides […] Read more

Hot Pink Tribal Nails (52 Week Challenge)

I’ve combined the hot pink and tribal prompts for this week in the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge. I have some hot pink nails in the form of L’Oréal Shocking Pink, and I have added a stamped tribal accent nail. I created the accent nail using the stamping decal method. I did plan on […] Read more

Tie Dye (52 Week Challenge)

The two prompts for this 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge were tie dye and fugly. I didn’t have many ideas about what to do, and I’ve just returned from holiday, meaning I am really busy catching up with things. So I took the easy option and created a tie dye accent nail which I […] Read more

Purple and Lilac Chevrons (52 Week Challenge)

This 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge calls for either a tape mani or a green manicure. I am not at all keen on green, so this was a no-brainer of a choice for me. I’ve created a purple and lilac chevrons manicure. The lilac is Revlon Provence. Provence in France is famous for its […] Read more

Orange and Red Gradient with Swirls Stamping (52 Week Challenge)

The two prompts for this week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge are three colours of red/orange or swirls. I combined the two for an orange and red gradient with swirls stamping. I can’t get enough of gradient stamping at the moment. I think it’s my favourite type of nail art. For the gradient, I […] Read more
