The Reader Challenge + A Quick Look


Reader Challenge.. I can hear a you all asking ‘what is the reader challenge?’.. Well, I am not so sure it is a challenge, but more so for some reader input!

The Challenge is for my lovely readers out there (yes, you!). Have you ever come across a nail art image that you are too scared to try/just don’t know how to go about doing it? WELL! I will try it out for you. I can post up tutorial pictures of how I went about doing it so that you can either just see it done (to the best of my ability) or learn some easy routes to trying it out yourself.

I don’t believe in difficult methods. I think things should be simple yet effective. In my perfect world (aka my mind) I feel being ‘challenged’ at least once a week would be great, but I’ll settle for every once in awhile. I will leave this challenge up on the side bar so that it will always be a constant reminder.

There are a couple of ways to go about this. First, you either have to send me a photo of your idea or just explain it and I will draw it out and double check to make sure it is what you were thinking of. Second, sending your idea and or picture to me – it can be done via e-mail (delaynee88@hotmail.com) or just leave it as a comment and I will get to it.

I am not sure what the response will be on this, but I was working on my nails last night while gaming and figured I would issue this ‘challenge’ and see if anyone would take me up on it.

I don’t care how difficult it is.. I will post the photos up even when I fail – I am trying to have no shame!!

I think it could be a lot of fun.. So please, any crazy/fun/silly/pretty/ugly nail art designs you have come across.. Challenge meeee!! I have a lot of images myself, but I’d like to see what others can come up for me to try.

Thankies for your time!


Now for some quick looks.. My mom had asked me if I would paint her nails for her.. So of course I did! It is like a sickness.. I will people to ask me to do their nails! She said I could do whatever with whatever colours.. But the last time she said that and I tried to use red, well, it didn't happen. Using CG II, Orly Glam Rock, Black SilkLine and my trusty bobby pin..





She is really happy with them and so am I. It allowed me to practice 'cheetah print'. Then, since painting her nails again reminded me of the red nail polish debacle, I decided to use red on myself. I used Essie Lollipop, OPI Alpine Snow, Black SilkLine and my trusty bobby pin..




The bows are not too impressive.. Anyways.. There was my quick (massive) update!
 
Enjoy the rest of your magnificent Monday!!

Okay, I really don't have any specific ideas really.. But I'm always trying to think of ocean or beachy nail art. Also, I think I need to learn how to do cupcakes, my younger sister loves all things cupcake.

Just a couple ideas!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
