Glam Nails: Triangles

So we're nearing the end of the Glam Nails Challenge now and so here's a simple one.

A nice little stamped triangle on the tips of my nails, that almost looks like a leave.

HPB Presents: First Gradient Attempt with the UberMat!

So recently I found a web store that stocks the UberMat in the UK! I was so pleased that I wouldn't have to pay almost what the mat itself costs for shipping that I bought it pretty much immediately. So today is my first play about with it and with the Hobby Polish Bloggers January Link up being gradients I decided to try and create a stamping decal including a gradient.

Glam Nails Challenge: Hot Chocolate

England is currently experiencing a very cold snap, and most places further North have experienced snow recently. Where I am though, all we've had is the cold wind and wet weather. So hot chocolate definitely seems like a good option for the evening. This is also today's prompt for the Glam Nails Challenge.

I thought it would be cute to have mugs of hot chocolate painted on my nails, so that is what I did.

Glam Nails Challenge: Frozen

The 4th Theme of the January Glam Nails Challenge is Frozen. This time I chose this to mean the Disney Movie.

I found a picture showing all the main characters and got to work at creating their outfits on my nails.

Glam Nails Challenge: Plaid

For today's design I went with a simple black and red style plaid. Using three polishes and a thin brush I created this design.

Glam Nails Challenge: Paisley

Prompt number two for this month's Glam Nails Challenge, which is paisley. I wasn't looking forward to this prompt as I think of paisley as intricate and detailed, two things I'm not very good at.

Overall I went with a plain black and white theme, almost like a colouring book.

Glam Nail Challenge: New Year Nails

So as the year starts many people have goals to be more active and live a healthier lifestyle. Although I don't completely agree with this, feeling obliged to make these resolutions just because everyone else is will inevitably end in disappointment when you finally find yourself breaking the resolutions you created, I do think encouraging those who really are committed to keeping these goals can only be a good thing. Surrounding yourself in positivity will encourage happiness in yourself and those you meet.

So inkeeping with the getting active theme I took out my BM-173 plate, one from their active range and stamped a clustering of designs.
