I kept my base of yesterday and just painted over it a coat of Barry M Shocking Pink, outlined with black and added the white line and dot, topped off with a coat of OPI Nail Envy - et voila - Cartoon Nails. This is my first attempt at these nails and I must say they turned out pretty darn good :)
Barry M - Shocking Pink
Art Deco nail art liner - White and Black
OPI Nail Envy - as Top Coat
Don't forget to check out the other ladies also taking part:-
I am taking part in this challenge as organised by Kerrie Black of Pishposhandpolish. We are doing this challenge over five days (Monday to Friday).
For this I thought I would try the waterfall nails as made popular by Sammy of The Nailasaurus. My strokes weren't long enough and I think my nail bed is too long. I will have to have another go at this technique and make sure I use longer strokes.
Nails Inc - Elizabeth Street - pale pink for the base
for the waterfall effect:
Nails Inc - Eccleston Mews - dark pink
China Glaze - Pool Party - Neon
OPI - La paz-itively Hot - medium pink
Seche Vite top coat
I have some decals to show you today (will do a swatch post with them soon). I had wanted some of these for a while and I had researched all sorts of different stores online to buy from. In the end, even though reviews for this site were mixed and some quite negative, I took the plunge and ordered me some decals from Aliexpress.com. From placing the order to delivery it took 13-14 days for my order to arrive. I am so happy for the fast shipment, packaging and delivery and also the products. The communication with the seller was fantastic and very helpful.
I have to say I also placed an order with another UK based online store about two weeks earlier than Aliexpress (9 September) and I am still waiting for delivery!
Onto the products I ordered for a total of about £15 ($25 US)-:
Letter Crown Anchor Nail Water Decals (pk 20)
Metallic Gold & Black Zipper Nail Water Decals (pk 20)
Oriental Floral Geisha Girls Nail Water Decals (pk 20)
1000pcs Round Multi Coloured Metal Studs (2 pks)
I will definitely be ordering from Aliexpress again. Have you ordered from them, what did you think?
