Day 9 of the 30 Day Challenge: Rainbow nails

I have to be honest, I did paint this manicure at the beginning of last week. But I have bee absolutely DYING to post it as it is definitely my favourite manicure so far.

I’ve always had a bit of an affiliation with rainbows of colour, so today’s theme is right up my street. I thought it would be a great excuse to get out my dotting tool for a play.

I started by painting my nails with Barry M’s Matt White and then used my dotting tool to paint dots onto my nails in stripes of colour using Bourjois Rouge Escarpin, Barry M Block Orange, Barry M Yellow, Barry M Spring Green, Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream, Models Own Lilac Dream and Barry M Bright Pink. It sounds time consuming but it was actually wasn’t that bad.

This manicure lasted a record TWO DAYS as I loved it that much. What do you think?

Back to school!

So today is the start of Rachel’s 30 Day Challenge, and I thought it sounded like great fun! The idea is that there is a theme for each day of this month that you must make a manicure around, using untried polishes where you can (that is, polishes you haven’t used before).

Today’s theme is ‘Red Nails’ so I dug through my polish box and found Bourjois Rouge Escarpin, a polish I had bought some time ago but have never used. I knew that I didn’t want to just paint my nails with this colour, so I looked through my new stamping plates to see what a could find. The apple was the first red thing I spotted and I thought it would be a cool idea to do a ‘Back to school’ theme.

What do you think?! I think it turned out pretty cool :)

I painted three fingers and my thumb with the Bourjois, and my ring finger with Barry M Matt White. I then stamped the apple using the Bourjois which worked surprisingly well! I then used a tiny paintbrush to dab bits of green glitter from Nails Inc Piccadilly Arcade onto the lead of the apple. I stamped the ABC using another of Cheeky’s stamping plates and Konad Special Polish.

Tomorrow’s theme is ‘Orange Nails’ so I’m starting to conjure up ideas for that already…

For this manicure I used:
  • Sally Hansen – Maximum Growth
  • Bourjois – So Laque! – Rouge escarpin 24
  • Barry M – Matt White
  • Nails Inc – Piccadilly Arcade
  • Konad Special Polish – White
  • Cheeky Mega Image Plate A
  • Cheeky Mega Image Plate B
  • Sally Hansen – Insta-Dri
