Hello lovelies! How is your week going? ♥ Last night I was super inspired to sew a little (I blame it on Milla from Lack of Colour, since this started after she posted a DIY bralette tutorial on her blog. Thank you for inspiring me to use all the fabrics I've hoarded in boxes around the house!), but I managed to nearly write this one ready for posting. It's now my coffee break at work, so I'm putting some finishing touches to this one.
So today, I want to share another part of 31-day nail challenge from last year with you.
The first mani today is this watermarble one. I really don't enjoy this technique since it's such a hit or miss - and mostly just miss - for me. I always end up messing things up one way or another so this really is not the way I like doing my nails. But you know, for a challenge...
The color scheme is a bit different here since I was going a Halloween themed nails. I'm not the biggest fan of the colors, but it is something different and the marbling was half decent, so it's not a fail.
I still don't know if I love or hate the fact that the finish is a little "dotty", since the black I used had some shimmer in it - and that made it kind of flake around. On the other hand it goes nicely with the Halloween theme but then it can also look messy to some. So I guess it's up to you whether this is good or not.
The polishes I used here were all by China Glaze: White On White as a base for the marble, and then Home Sweet House Music, Smoke And Ashes, Plur-Ple and In The Lime Light.
The second mani was inspired by a color. A color black(ish), as it was indeed Halloween time around when I was doing these. I decided to do some glittery mix and match here, and I quite like how it turned out.
I liked the color scheme here a lot, the dark polish is one of my favorites and the metallics with it seemed nice to my own eye. Hope you like that too!
I tried out some glitter placement here with diamond shaped glitter sequins. It could've been more neat, but I still like how it looked. I've seen some super amazing creations with sequin placement, and I hope I'll get even half as good at it some day as the masters of sequin art are. It'll take quite many manis to practice, but I don't mind.
The only nail polishs used in this design were Crimson and Getting To Gnaw You by China Glaze. The rose gold studs and gold diamond sequins are from Born Pretty Store (if you shop there, use the code JOHH10 to get 10% off your purchase!).
What do you guys think about these designs? Let me know in the comments below!
That's all for this post, I'm not sure if I will post again tonight or if it'll be tomorrow, but I hope you'll stay tuned for that anyways. This week, I'm hoping to post at least one outfit, one beauty post and one recipe. I'm not sure if that will happen, but I will try my best. If you have any requests for future posts, you can leave them down below so I can put them on my list of future topics! In the meantime, follow me on Instagram and Twitter (I'm @silvertigo on both!) for more updates daily. My Twitter is a weird mix of style, beauty and sports - mainly F1 - but if you're into that, I wish to see you there. I'm slowly getting more into Twitter again and I would love to connect with you there!
Have a lovely day ♥
