Tribal Gradient Stamping with CICI&SISI Ethnic Elements | Twinsie Tuesday

The Twinsie Tuesday prompt this week is gradient stamping, so I have tribal gradient stamping manicure. It’s a summery, festival kind of look with a hot gradient, stamped with an image from CICI&SISI Ethnic Elements (plate 33). My gradient is inspired by the colours in the Sky logo. I keep seeing it on TV and […] Read more

Fairisle Christmas Jumper Nails | Twinsie Tuesday

After a bit of a hiatus during December, the Twinsie Tuesday group returns today with a Christmas manicure. I have created some Fairisle Christmas jumper nails, in cream, pink and blue. I have just received the CICI & SISI special Christmas plate, Miss Xmas – Happy Reindeer. I won it in a CICI & SISI […] Read more

Orange and White Stamping | My Job | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

This week the theme for 40 Great Nail Art Ideas is my job, and I have some orange and white, rather eclectic stamping. I’m not enjoying the themes very much. They always immediately prompt me to need to do something freehand, which is not my forte. I need my lines to look straight and my […] Read more

Black With Gradient Pigment Stamping using Bundle Monster Star Dust Pigments

I don’t really know how to describe this post. This design doesn’t have an obvious name. So it’s a black with gradient pigment stamping design using Bundle Monster Star Dust pigments! I’ve used these fantastic Star Dust Pigments to create the base of this design. These are sparkly, duochromatic pigments that come in small pots. […] 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

Silver with Red Diamond Stamping: S is for: Silver

I didn’t mange to post on time yesterday for the A2Z series challenge, and I’m a day late. It’s S this time, for silver. Firstly I painted my nails using W7 Silver Suede. This was given to be by my friend Michelle. She’s just got into painting her nails and has fallen hard, already setting […] Read more

Stamped Blue Roses

This is a manicure from last year. I had worn Nail Geek Dreams for a few days and decided to upgrade it by adding some stamping. I used CICI & SISI plate 03 and stamped some roses using Mundo De Unas Holland Blue. I’m liking the MDU stamping polishes. I’ve had to get used to […] Read more

Revlon Midnight Stamped with Color Club Over The Moon: H is for: Holographic

You’d be forgiven for not realising that this week’s A2Z series challenge is all about holographic … because my camera and lightbox set-up means that I cannot capture holo. I could, of course, have photographed these nails in the sun, but it’s somewhere over Turks and Caicos, Haiti and Ottawa right now. I’ll add a […] Read more

Nails Inc Tate stamped with gold hearts (52 Week Challenge)

As my last manicure was chevrons, I chose the red and gold prompt this week in the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge. The base is two coats of Nails Inc Tate, which came free with Glamour magazine this month. It’s a lovely, deep red, and I couldn’t resist getting it, despite the fact that […] Read more

Autumnal gradient with gold leaves: November Polish Party

For the Polish Party theme for November, the vote was tied equally between autumn and weather. I’ve gone with autumn as I’ve had the idea for these nails ever since I did my autumnal stripes with the same polishes. Because of that manicure, I knew that the polishes would gradient well. They are all Barry […] Read more
