September Nail Challenge | Mozaic & Mermaid

Heller Hellerrrr!!

I'm back with entries three and four of @clairestelle8 September Nail Challenge.

The theme for day 9 was 'Mozaic' and I recreated a favourite mani of mine and it came out great. I knew days in advance which colours I wanted to use and made sure I got this one together on time. Here's the link for the first mozaic mani I did. I was dying to try my Oy! Another Polish Joke and made sure to weasel that one in here. I'm really liking this colour scheme.

Day 12's theme was 'Mermaid', and like day 9 I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do and was pleased with how it came out. I made stamping decals for the first time using my Gal Cosmetics stamping plates and Konad Stamper and they turned out way better than expected.

All in all I was really proud of these two manis. Almost made me feel like I got my groove back lol. I hope you guys like them. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Until next time...

September Nail Challenge | Coral & Flowers

Hi again,

Hope everybody's good.

A few months ago I completed the February nail challenge and promised I'd do another soon but then life happened.
 While scrolling through my Instagram feed last week I came across a picture on @gigislacqueredup page of @clairestelle8 September Challenge and decided to give it a go. The last one I did was back in February and I've been meaning to do another but life happened.

Below is the list of entries for the challenge.

Ok, so the plan is to show you my entries for the challenge every Sunday as usual as I have no time to blog during the week. So far I'm off to a bad start lol.

Anyway, they're eight manis to be done in the challenge and I knew from the outset they were going to be a bit of a challenge for me asthe nail art's a tad bit rusty from non-use.

The first mani for September 3rd was themed 'Coral' and I did a simple mani with a gold accent nail. Now being entirely truthful this wasn't what I had planned. I'd initially pulled out the nail vinyls and shades of coral in the stash and got to work. turned out nothing like I envisioned. Hence the boring plain Jane mani.

September 6th's mani was a bit more detailed. The theme was 'Flowers' so I got out the dotting tools and set to work. Here's what I came up with. Not perfect, but I liked it.

So those were my first two entries fort he challenge and hopefully I only get better from here.

Hope you liked them. Until next time...
