GOT2 - Full Challenge In Pictures

GOT Polish Challenge Part 2 - Week 13 - Gradient

The final challenge of the second GOT challenge. Week 13 of the GOT2 (Golden Oldie Thursday) Polish challenge over at Crumpet's Nail Tarts the theme - Gradient.

I love doing gradients and find the manicure so quick and easy (a little messy) but other than that simple.  I saw this on Nadia Alicia's IG account.  If you are not following, you are really missing out.

Anyway, I just loved the colour combination and had to give it a got.  The oldies in this are the China Glaze and LA Girl lacquers. This is my interpretation.

Items used:
OPI Nail Envy
China Glaze - Grape Pop
LA Girl - Turntable
Nanacoco - Love Me Tenderly
Seche Vite

GOT Polish Challenge Part 2 - Week 11 - Red

Week 11 of the GOT2 (Golden Oldie Thursday) Polish challenge over at Crumpet's Nail Tarts. The theme for this week is Red.

I literally did just that, Red.  This is one of my oldest red nail polish that I own.  It is definitely double figure years old, probably 15years or older!  I would love to own more Zoya nail lacquer, but it is just to heavy on the pocket!

I have neglected it over newer reds, so here it is in all its glory and nothing else.
Items used:
OPI Nail Envy
Zoya - Delilah

SIMPLES - Week 4 - Saran Wrap

SIMPLES: Nail Art from Muggle to Mastery - Week 4 is Saran Wrap (cling film to us UK dwellers).

First off I cut and reshaped my nails this weekend. I really liked the length but unfortunately they were getting "too long" for my job (I work in a school, reception year).    I also shaped them back to square nails.  I haven't had them like this in a long while and thought it a good idea, but I am not sure I like them!.

Anyway, back to this week.  I have done this technique several times and it is a real quick and easy to go manicure.  The possibilities are endless. Have a look in this link here.

For this particular one I did a purple saran wrap with a matte top coat, which I really like.

Items used:
OPI Nail Envy
Barry M - Berry
Illamasqua - Poke
Matte Top Coat - Primark
Cling Film (Saran Wrap)
