I’d originally planned to use the lace as a sort of mask, but tests didn’t work. I ended up putting the lace directly on the nail. I think a more delicate lace would work better. Still looked pretty cool.
I love these. Used white pen on top of black to make the firework outlines. Used gold glitter pens to make the sparkles and then used different, chunky, round glitters to make the sparkle flurries. Might have to do a little twinkle-video!
Used the sandwich bag technique again. I had something more elaborate in mind, but there’s always next year!
Used a fan brush to get a line-y goth-y bone effect.
My life’s been taken over with work at the moment so none of my Halloween nails were as exciting as I wanted 🙁 But when it’s a choice between sleep or nails, one chooses sleep! These were done with the sandwich bag technique, and I absolutely love the effect!
Browns, golds, oranges, reds and glitter leaves. Simple sponging of coloured layers.
This was in honour of my littlest sister, who turned 18 at the weekend. We’re always fabulous (glitter) and we like pink. The pink is Ciaté’s “Cupcake Queen” and the glitter is from some random loose glitters.
It’s Web Expo Guildford week, therefore continuing with my “web event themed nails” (see Pubhack and dConstruct). I was so busy this week, these are quite messy, but still a hit. Changed my mind about what I wanted to do part way through. Had intended Xs but just didn’t have the time. Had some chevron shaped […]
I had trouble picking a theme this week, and then remembered I was going to see Ballyturk at the National Theatre. As a result, this week’s theme was Cillian Murphy‘s eye colour—blue. I layered some different blues with a sponge and finished with a layer or two of Barry M’s “Mermaid”.
I wanted to use a theme from something I liked from all the conferences I attended last week. I chose Gav Strange’s giant Gromit from the Gromit Unleashed event. It is easily one of the coolest things I have ever seen. He’s pink and gold with a spiky collar, and who doesn’t love Gromit? I have to […]
I was the lucky one who won a dConstruct ticket in SiteGround‘s draw. Since my glitter nails got decimated at Reasons To (yep, I’m all conference, all week!) I thought I’d change it up. The greeny effect is an interpretation of the website header, the orangey red on the calls to action and the “d” […]
Wishing I hadn’t tipped these. I do like the pink glitter polish, think it would look good worked into space nails.
