Day 3: 33DC - Tape manicure

Hello cupcakes!

It's a smidgen past day 3 of 33DC so it's way past time for a tape manicure.

For this I used Sally Hansen's Fairy Teal (so gorgeous) and OPI's DS Radiance with some scotch tape.  I didn't got for a tremendous amount of complexity and I still managed to balls it up but let's just pretend that I intended the little notch and the bottom and move on.  So with no more ado and without further delay here it is:

 I feel like this one looked better in person than it does on the photos here but it's still not my best work.  Anyway, onwards and upwards.

Next up - tribal.

Day 2 of the 33DC - Most used colour

Hello gumdrops

Well it's a Wednesday so it's challenge day.

Today's challenge courtesy of the 33DC that The Crumpet is running is artwork featuring your most used polish.

My most used polish is Utopia from Model's Own - it's a fantastic base for most artwork and doubles as a lovely colour in it's own right for work or anything lowkey.  I was just going to have her on my nails with an accent of glitter (Barry M's Rose Quartz) but I'm now pathologically incapable of just having a plain colour so I chucked some dots on there using BM's Matte White. So now I've got a quirky subtle take on a frenchie.

And here we go:

I'll love and leave you until Friday.

See below for some more pretty pretty art.

Day 1 of 33DC - Dotticure

Hello cupcakes!

Oh my, I think I've bitten off more than I can chew. I've decided to try to take part in the 33DC from The Crumpet. There will be three manis a week posted on Monday, Tuesday and Friday from now until 6th December (eek!) So day one is a simple dot manicure.

I used Rimmel's Cranberry Zest and OPI's French Quarter for your Thoughts finished of with the usual Seche Vite. To produce a Dotty skittle mani.

I really, really liked how the flowers turned out. I don't think I've done a flower with dotting tools like this before and the others were just me playing around with the tools that I had to hand.

Have a look see below at how the talented Crumpet's tarts got on with day 1
