GOTpolish Challenge: Orange

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

GOTpolish Challenge: Valentines Day

image

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!

GOTpolish Challenge: Green

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!

Theme Buffet: Sparkle

It’s a bit past the season for full on glitter, so I’ve gone for something a bit more subtle for today’s Theme Buffet, which is all about sparkle.

I was inspired by the Hubble Space Telescope, and decided to do a galaxy mani using the colours from this photo, which is a 2010 image of the Carina Nebula.

GOTpolish Challenge: Stripes

image

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).

You can see all my other GOTpolish Challenge designs, as they’re released, here.

Will You Bee Mine?

image

An unusually summery design for these cold winter months! I don’t normally do designs which are essentially one picture painted across five nails. In this instance, the dots represent the bee’s path across the sky.

Created using Rimmel Lycra Pro in Aqua Cool for the sky, with Rio nail art pens in yellow, black and dark blue for the design.
