52 week pick and mix challenge - brush strokes

Good day all,

I'm back with another installment of 52wpnmc the first theme for the week is brush strokes.

I thought long and hard about this because I didn't want to do distressed nails last time I did them it failed and I just can't be bothered again so I decided I would try the waterfall mani again, I followed the tutorial that was done by sammy the nailasaurus HERE. She does awesome nail art and tutorials.

For this mani I used Nails Inc The Bolders, BarryM Gold and a no name silver. The Nails Inc polish is just gorgeous it is that lovely Christmas red and I have had so many comments about the red and how lovely it is.

52 week pick and mix challenge - Books & Brown

Hi all,

Sorry for the absence all week but me and my fiance and the dog went away just a little break but needed to recharge. I am back and feeling more like me. This weeks theme for the 52wpnmc is brown and books, as I am still not feeling 100% myself I combined the prompts and sort of tweaked them.

For this week I used Colour Club Poetic Hues, W7 Suede, BarryM Espresso and Color Show Brick Shimmer.

I thought I'd try and do newspaper nails, I know I know not quite a book but I don't read all I do read is the Metro on the way to work haha so this is the closest I can do.

52 Week Pick and Mix animals wild

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the lack of posts this week I think this will be the only one this week and I will only be doing one next week. I have been very drained and tired over the last week or so and I have got some time off work next week so I am hoping to recharge relax and get back on the band wagon.

This weeks theme is wild animals and I decided I would kill 2 birds with one stone. A month or so back I asked for any requests if people wanted me to do any nail art and the lovely Emma at Ems Little Corner suggested freehand animal print. I decided cheetah print would be a good one.

I have used W7 Hip Hop, BarryM Tangerine, W7 Suede and BarryM Matte Black.

52 week pick and mix challenge 3 shades of blue

Hi again everyone,

Sorry this is on the last day I've had a horrendous cold this last week and I'm wiped out.

Today for the 52WPNMC, the 2nd theme is 3 Shades of Blue. I decided I wanted to try layered stamping I got out all my plates and sat there thinking which ones would work best together and which polishes are good for stamping. I chose my polishes fiarly easily as I have lots of blue polishes I used BarryM Blueberry, BarryM Cyan and Kiko 266 Ultramarine Blue, I used BarryM white to break it up a bit. I used stamping plate Moyou London pro collection XL 06 and Cheeky plate

I tried to do different patterns on every nail.

I really like my middle and ring finger nails best check out the link below for more lovely nail art. So I am off to go and curl up in the bath because I feel horrendous and I will be back next week.

52 week pick and mix challenge Domestic Animal

Hi all,

This post to you today is totally about my dog my lovely Springer Spaniel Ralph. I saw the post done by MO at Pretty Quirky and I thought about how I would do ralphs face on my nails.

He has a mainly brown face and I just couldn't figure out how I would differentiate between his nose and face and eyes so I wussed out and did a side on view of him stood.
