#OMD3nails! Day 30 – #mynailsandmybag

Hello! I’ve had a little break from painting my nails for a few days since I was taking up a lot of my free time blogging and nail painting. Even though I loved every minute, I figured I should probably escape the nail polish fumes for a couple of days!

I’m back though with little time to spare before the OMD3 challenge is over 😦 I have loved this challenge once again and it’s really been a brilliant opportunity to connect with so many talented bloggers from across the globe and I’ve tried to push my creativity.

Today I will be showing you my nails for the theme ‘#mynailsandmybag’ which I’ve been looking forward to. Ah, shoes and handbags. This challenge has been so brilliant. I decided to create the print on this pretty bag which I got a few years ago as a gift which I believe was part of a Boots perfume deal. I really like the floraly print and the bold red background. Pretty 🙄 I’ll add an image of the print below…

I started by applying a red base coat by Rimmel London in the shade Double Decker Red and used my trusty Barry M nail art pen in white, to create random shapes like the ones on the bag.

Not my favourite design ever but it’ll be interesting to see what they look like in different colours perhaps!

Apologies for my thumb nail. The nail art pen decided to blob all of a sudden 😦 sad times.

As always, I finished off the design with a lovely coat of Seche Vite to add a nice shine although looking back, maybe these nails would rock a matte topcoat! I may just try that.

#OMD3nails! Day 25 – Weather

Hello! Today I will be showing you my design for weather in the #OMD3nails challenge!

Living in the UK, we don’t have the best weather. It’s a case of rain most of the time and on rare, rare occasions, we have a little bit of sun. But even then the bright light and heat is a shock to the sun itself, hence the sunglasses on the sun in my mani 😉

I created the sun accent nail by starting with a pastel yellow base and adding a tiny amount of orange polish around the edges of the nail. I then used a black striper to create the mouth, along with two rectangles which I filled in and some small lines to create the sunglasses.

On my other nails, I decided to go for rain. I didn’t want the design to be too miserable weather looking so I used a pastel blue base coat (No7 Duck Egg Blue) as the sky. To create a raindrop texture, I simply placed spots of top coat onto the base. I was quite generous with the amount because I wanted it to bubble.

I didn’t add a final layer of topcoat the the raindrop incase I flattened the design.

I love the texture, although they flattened slightly, they still look very bubbly and fun. They remind me of bubble wrap and who can resist bubble wrap?
