Today’s mani was inspired by W7’s Lava Flow nail polish
More after the jump…
Today’s GOTpolish challenge was orange. Yikes. I never wear orange! Luckily I happened to have some Barry M Gelly in Mango left over from a couple of festive designs, so I was able to submit these butterfly nails today!
I was inspired by the famous monarch butterfly, which looks like this
I created the effect with three (!) coats of Mango. I then used two Rio nail art pens in black and white to draw on the design

For today’s GOTpolish challenge, I’ve done a blue and nude fishtail chevron mani. They’re super simple to do, and you don’t need ANY tools to do them – not even a nail art brush! You can find a tutorial over at Chalkboard Nails
The two polishes are Barry M Gelly in Blueberry and Lychee

Happy Valentines Day everyone! This is my entry for the GOTpolish Challenge Valentines design. It was created using OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and a red Rio nail art pen.
So, why not a more traditional, feminine design? Less because I’m a grumpy git who won’t have anything to do with this romantic nonsense (bah!) and more because the boyfriend is a first aider who likes all things medical!

So, here’s the newest installment of the GOTpolish Challenge 2014! This week’s challenge is green. Not a colour I normally wear, I must confess, so my options for which polish I could use were somewhat limited.
So, to create this mani I
1. Used a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (two coats)
2. Using the regular brush from the bottle, I applied an off-centre stripe of Sinful Colors Exotic Green
3. Using a Rio nail art pen, I drew four lines on each nail
Next week, I have a rather unromantic Valenines day mani for you!

The blue is 17 in Heart Beat, which I picked up for 50p in the Boots clearance recently, so it was something of a bargain! I’m still yet to work out why a pale blue is called heart beat though, as a blue heart normally means no oxygen, so i’s not beating …aaand I’ll leave it there. Maybe they pick the names out of a hat.
I then did a row of overlapping white dots in OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, followed by a line of black dots in Nails Inc New York Noir. Finally, in the centre of each black dot I added a smaller dot of Heart Beat.

I’m also something of a fan of polka dots, and there are loooads more designs here.
This is my contribution for the GOTpolish Challenge stripes week. I’m quite shamelessly following a tutorial here from QTplace, which I have been a little bit in love with for quite some time!
Created using OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Rio nail art pens in black and green, Essie We’re All In It Together (pale pink) and Rimmel Hot Shot (bright pink).

This is my first installment from the GOTpolish Challenge. This super-girly gradient mani uses Nails Inc Elizabeth Street (pale pink) and Rimmel Hot Shot (bright pink), applied onto a sponge and then onto my nail (as per the Polly Polish tutorial). I then put a rhinestone towards the cuticle, affixed with a coat of Maybelline Forever Strong Pro in Crystal Clear.
