I’m sorry I haven’t been up to date on my nail challenge in the last week. I just started a new job, working at Sephora! (How exciting, right?!) I’ll try and get back into it as soon as possible. I just wanted to say thanks to all my readers, and I’ll have more posts up soon! We are having a Halloween party tonight (and because it’s also my birthday today!) What are you guys dressing up as? Hopefully I’ll have some pictures up for you guys in the next couple days!
Have a lovely weekend!
Inspired by a book! I went with Harry Potter, even though it has been done quite a bit. It’s hard not to love Harry Potter, especially the books. I remember when I was in grade 7, my teacher was from England and he had brought the first book in the series to read to us. This was before it got crazy in North America. If you’ve never read the series, you totally should. For this mani, I used Toast from Wet n Wild, Forest by JoeFresh, Gold Accessory by Maybelline, Black Out from Wet n Wild, Yellow Umbrella from Sephora, Red Red from Wet n Wild, Let’s Get Lost by Essence, and a black striping polish to do the lightning bolt. I really like how this turned out! (The green on my pinky looks black in the photo, unfortunately, but in person it looks great, I swear!)
I really had to think this one through. Search through Google images, really take note of the colours and the imagery. I didn’t pick just any movie. I went with my favourite movie. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! (Probably a good idea since I know it so well.) This was a pretty fun mani to do and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. Each nail represents a vital part of the movie, in my opinion. I’m not even going to list all the colours I used because there’s too many and I also needed to mix polishes together to get the right colour. I will give you the breakdown of what is on each nail.
Pointer finger-Willy Wonka’s top hat. Middle Finger-Oompa Loompa. Ring Finger-Golden Ticket. Pinky Finger-Lollipop.
My thumb was my favourite nail to do because I think it looks most like what it’s supposed to represent. Here’s a still from the movie along with my thumbnail.
I had a lot of trouble with this. Not with the mani itself, but trying to figure out what song to do. Trying to put a song onto 5 little nails is a lot harder than you’d think. Continue reading
The mani today was pretty much a no-brainer. Inspired by a colour. Obviously I went with my favourite colour. PINK! I did a little bit of a glitter gradient to fancy it up a little. The polishes I used are both from Essie. The glitter is A Cut Above and the base is Mod Squared. I really like how this turned out.
The photo makes the base colour look a bit more purple than it really is. In person it is much more straight bright pink.
The thought of doing water marbled nails was pretty daunting to me, and for good reason. I’ve read lots of horror stories about things going wrong, so I wasn’t very excited to do this. Continue reading
This one was fun. I will admit, however, I did this a while ago, before I even started my blog. It still follows the rules(doesn’t it?). The thing about doing galaxy nails, is that it doesn’t have to be uniform, at all. While there are about a billion tutorials on how to do them, I used it more as a guideline. I’m not quite sure of the polishes I used, but again, not a big deal. Use what you have and what you like.
