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.

Hello! Today I will be showing you my design for day 10 of OMD3nails which has a floral theme. I will be going back to some of the prompts I missed but I really wanted to do this prompt first. When you get inspiration like I did, you have to run with it!
Today’s mani is inspired by a pretty little daisy necklace which was a Christmas present from my bestie, Holly (thank ewwww 😀 ) It’s a silver flower with a gold centre. I decided to emphasise the amazing centre which reminds me of the gold beads in my primark nail wheel. I seriously would suffer in this challenge without that nail wheel. Thanks Primark. 🙄
I reversed the colours slightly. I worked with white petals on a silver background instead of creating silver petals. I used Rimmel’s ‘Your Majesty’ polish as my base and a white nail art striper from claires accessories to create the petals.
I started with a point in the middle of my nail and simply added white brush stroked to create the petals. I then added a topcoat and an extra blob of a clear polish in the centre and placed on the gold beads. I couldn’t resist and took a close up macro shot of this accent. I think that the simplicity and the colours work well for this design and I’m actually really pleased with how they turned out 😀
I think it would be a bit too much if I created this design on each nail and I feel the same way about a lot of my other designs during this challenge which is why I’ve been focusing on accent nails.
That is all for today’s prompt. Like I said, I may jump back to some of the other prompts but my aim is to complete at least 15 entries out of the 31 prompts! Let’s hope.
New post soon! Make sure you take a look at the other designs in the link up below! Thanks for reading!
