40 Great Nail Art Ideas - 3 shades of purple

Hey everyone one.  It's time for another 40 Great Nail Art Ideas mani.  Geez these weeks are just rolling on by!

I can't believe it's Australia Day on Tuesday and I haven't prepared any new Australia Day nails.  I'm going to have to do a rehash post this year I think. Especially as we are going out of town for an extra long weekend, leaving tomorrow.  I just packed up a little nail bag to take with me. Can you beleive I limited myself to only three polishes for while I'm away for 4 days!

Onto today's art.  The theme for this week is three shades of purple, and my individual prompt was pattern on pattern.  Oh how I struggled with this one!  I did attempt some stamping with two designs stamped on on top of each other, but it looked terrible and I didn't even take photos of it,  Then I saw this plate from Messy Mansion and I finally got an idea.

My pattern on pattern is the harlequin pattern base and then the eye mask decal.  I know calling the mask a pattern is a little bit of a stretch, but it's all up to our own interpretation. Right?

My base polish is Picture Polish Wisteria (original version) and the stamping is with a purple Mundo de Unas polish.  The purple in the mask is coloured in with Pretty Serious Poltergeist Puddle.


  1. This would be the best Mardi Gras nail art ever. Also, stunning

  2. Oh my, this must be my favourite mani for this prompt! I love that decal!

  3. This is so great!! Lovelovelove!! And shame on me having that Pretty Serious polish literally years and never getting around to it yet...augh....

  4. They are beautiful! A real piece of art :)

  5. This is a really pretty look! Super creative and very well done!
