40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Films

Week 17 of the 52 week 40 Great Nail Art Idea's Challenge.

This week the prompt is Films.

Its been a busy old week all home and work, so I did a simple manicure using decals.

My manicure is based on film icon and legend Marilyn Monroe.  The red nails are to symbolise her iconic red lipstick and the white nails for the iconic white dress she wore in The Seven Year Itch.  I have used nails decals on the two white nails.

I have used OPI Alpine Snow (white) and the red is an un-named red from my daughters glossy box.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - 3 Shades of Purple with Circles

Week 16 of the 52 week 40 Great Nail Art Idea's Challenge.

This week the prompt is 3 Shades of Purple for everyone and my personal pattern prompt is Circles.

I have done a 3 shade purple sponge gradient with gold stamped circles on all but the ring finger.  On the ring finger, I started off with a white base (OPI Alpine Snow) I then stamped with the 3 shades of purple.  I have used BM322 plate.

I am still a novice where stamping is concerned as I don't own any decent stamping polish, but the No7 polish I used turned out pretty well.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Things That Fly

We are now on week 15 of the 52 week 40 Great Nail Art Idea's Challenge.

This week the prompt is Things That Fly.

I had lots of ideas, but when it came down to it, I ran out of time so did a simple butterfly water decal accent nail instead.  The main colour did not photo true, the colour IRL is much more darker and deeper.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Pale Blue Base with Chevrons

We are now on week 14 of the 52 week 40 Great Nail Art Idea's Challenge.

This week the prompt is Pale Blue Base - and the added extra personal pattern prompt - Chevrons.

This is what I have come up with.  I painted all my nails with CG (two coats) for the ring and middle fingers I used cut out sticky back plastic in chevron shapes (I don't own any vinyl stickers :( ), and painted on the darker blue.  For the other nails I free hand painted the tips in a chevron french.  The result....
