Day 26: Inspired by a Pattern

Sister V – source of much of my inspiration for this week, suggested spirals as the pattern for day 26 of the 31 Day Nail Polish Challenge. Ok!

I was also inspired in part by Simply Rins, who did the most gorgeous blue rose manicure (check it out, seriously! She’s AMAZING!), and it made me think about changing the colours in the spiral. I wish I’d chosen more colours, and a more opaque light pink, as it wasn’t visible really except as a texture over the light pink base. Next time!

This is Mode Sweetness as the base, which is a brand new to me polish, with OPI The One That Got Away dotted in the middle part of the spiral, and OPI Who Needs A Prince on the outer part of the spiral.

Have a great day!



Day 16: Tribal Nails

I had nooo idea what tribal pattern to pick, so I perused the internet and chose an image – then based the mani on the top half of this image: (from

I used Kleancolor Metallic Black, Orange, Aqua, and e white, with a KleancolorĀ top coat. I used the orange rather than a yellow just because that orange is so dense, and covers the black easier šŸ™‚

This was pretty tricky actually, but fun.

I did miss some of the cleanup, whoops. But overall, I did like this, but I probably won’t bother again!

Have a great day


Day 15: Delicate Print

Day 15 of the 31 Day Nail Polish Challenge: delicate print.

This was all freehand dotting, as I’m sure is immediately apparant šŸ˜€

I used two coats of Kleancolor Sandstone as the base, and a pink nail polish from the brand Nail Polish for the pattern – topped off with Kleancolor Top Coat. I was going for the paisley – type effect, but think it’s possibly more Vermacious Knid. Which would be awesome, but not delicate.

HaveĀ a great day!
