Clairestelle8March Challenge: Holi

Here's the 7th prompt in this challenge, and my first attempt at splatter nail art. This is an unpredictable technique, that I decided to do with a couple of contrasting colours.

Clairestelle8March Challenge: Flying

Today is a tutorial that I'm not too happy with the outcome for. I tried to create a skittle design but I don't think the design moulds too greatly together. Fingers crossed you guys think it's alright.

Clairestelle8March Challenge: St Partrick's Day

Hello there!

Today is a simple little tutorial to create a little clover for your nails. A little late for St Patrick's Day by now I guess but it may carry the spirit on.

Here's what you'll learn to create:

Clairestelle8March Challenge: Mosaic

So many of you taking part in the Clairestelle8 March challenge will realise that this is not the next prompt and that I have in fact missed one. This week has been pretty busy and I just didn't have time to do two designs. But if there is time near the end of the challenge I may go back and do the clothes inspired theme that I missed out, as I did have a clear idea about what I wanted to do.

This design is a quickie, I did it on the sofa while watching tv, so it is definitely one that newbies in nail art can try. I just used three colours, a black polish and base and top coat. As well as a striping brush.

Clairestelle8March Challenge: Sport

This is a day late to what the challenge wanted but it's better late than never. I took inspiration from the Tennis that was broadcast yesterday in England and have set up a little doubles tournament on my nails. Ok. So maybe it's not as active as it could be but all the equipment is there, two rackets and a ball. So you just need to grab some people.

ClaireStelle8March Challenge: Blue

So I finally got myself into gear and prepared to embark on doing another challenge. I always feel apprehensive about doing these as they often have more than one prompt to do each week and for me that is often very hectic, but this month see's in the holiday and so as my university work begins to slow I may be able to squeeze in a design or two more than I would normally. Hence why this is the second design this week already!

Haha, so here it is the first theme is blue and so I created some lovely little Smurfs.

Read on for more information about the challenge I'm doing and how I created this design.
