Challenge Your Nail Art: Flowers

Thursday, 2 February 2017


Generally speaking I am pretty good at completing nail art challenges, however every now and again I start some and don't end up finishing them for whatever reason.  Challenge Your Nail Art Twelve Days Of Christmas was one of the challenges I failed at (mainly because I was having a lot of Christmas nail fails and then was trying to swatch like a mad woman).  The Challenge Your Nail Art is a bi monthly challenge and I have decided that I am going to give it a go this month.  I have it all scheduled in my planner so fingers crossed I can keep on track with it (and everything else I have planned).  I may need to double some things up but they don't call these things a challenge for no reason do they?  

Anyway the first theme is flowers.  I recently purchased the new Neutral Beauty Collection from Grace-full Nail Polish (which I will be swatching and reviewing soon) and was wearing Lilac Ice when I realized that I needed to do a floral mani.  Easy solved, I used Lilac Ice as my base and stamped using Bundle Monster's Lunar Lines.  Stamping image is from Lina Nail Art Supplies Feeling Shapely 06.  I had planned on filling in the centres of the flowers but I actually really like it with the two tones of purple.

I'm going to apologize for this sunshine picture.  It was actually taken at 8pm (it's Daylight Savings here in Melbourne) and the sun was setting so it's quite yellow toned.

So that's mani number one for this challenge.  Only four more to go.  Seems achievable but let's see how I go.  Are you joining in with this challenge?

    1. Thanks Vicky. I feel it's going to be a bit of a bumpy ride with some of the themes, so it's definitely going to be an interesting month :)
