31DC2019 - Delicate print

In previous years I’ve put a lot of effort into thinking of things that are delicate as well as having delicate prints and then representing those things on my nails. This year I’ve just gone with some simple stamping that absolutely has a delicate feel to it.

My base for this mani is a vertical gradient using a couple of picture polish shades. I love that it’s really subtle and it almost just looks like the edges of your nails are in shadow, not that there is a darker edge from the gradient.  I then just added some fine stamping at the cuticle edge.

31DC2019 - Flowers

It’s a cheat day on the challenge today, cause I’ve gone with some beautiful flower design MILV water decals.  These are some really pretty ones, and the design of them would be very hard to create with stamping. It’s kind of an unwritten rule I like to follow with water decals, I only like to use them  when they have designs I can’t really create otherwise.

31DC2019 - Animal print - Peacock feathers

My home town of Canberra has quite the pride of Peafowl, and apparently this warmer weather is the start of the mating season.  It’s the time that all those fancy boys need to impress the girls with the colour and depth of their train, and the size of their “eyes”, otherwise they will have a lonely spring!

So I’m here to help you out boys with my peacock inspired animal print.  All I can say is that I hope you guys have better luck impressing the ladies than I did when my mum saw these. She asked why I had the Brazilian flag on my nails 🇧🇷?

31DC2019 - Stripes

Loving the colour combo here, not loving my uneven freehand stripes. But hey, using vinyls to make neat stripes is just so much hard work don’t you think?

In past years for this challenge, I’ve used nail vinyls to create my stripes, and I admit that they looked amazingly neat, but they literally took me hours to do. So all things considered, I’m happy to practice my freehand painting and save myself extra hour or two.

31DC2019 - Polka Dots

Today is dots day, and let me say this is the third dot mani I did for this prompt.  The first two were really pretty bad.  First I wore a purple base with a round glitter topper. It didn’t look smooth and ended up being pretty chunky. The second look was a nude shade with tiny pastel dots in a few shades. I’d seen the idea on someone else and it looked lovely, but mine smudged and wasn’t nice. So now it’s design number three.

This one is ok, and what I did like about it was comparing the different shades of grey. When I did the dots, they were all made using black polish mixed with white, and the grey shade is blue tinted. Whereas the base polish, which is also grey, is more of a greige, that is a beige leaning grey.

31DC2019 - Gradient - Fall Autumn colours

Here were are with my Gradient look for the challenge.  This colour combo was right out of my comfort zone, but it sure fits on with an Autumn feel, despite it actually being the start of spring down under.

I used a couple of new Picture Polish Shades, Sienna and Korma. I also added just the itchiest bit of brown polish to the centre of the gradient to darken it up a bit.  To finish the look I applied some gold holographic stickers.
