Nail Art: Ben & Jerry's Sundae Festival Manicure  

Posted by: Stylishly yours in , , , , , , , , , ,

I went to the Ben & Jerry's Sundae Festival at Clapham Common on Sunday to see my favourite band Doves. My boyfriend was asking me if I would dedicate a manicure to the festival. He reckons it's not very often you can ask for ice cream by giving them the finger! Haha!

This is my craziest nail art to date on this blog, I've used too many varnishes for this project, I can only list them all but it's too difficult to write the entire instruction for them. If you would like to know, email me and I'll explain what I've done with each nail.

Nail Art: Lippy Electric Leopard Manicure (PHD Colour Accent Challenge Entry)  

Posted by: Stylishly yours in , , , , , ,

I've been following Polish Hoarder Disorder (PHD) for a while now. She has weekly nail art challenges. I finally have the courage to submit an entry to this week's challenge – Colour Accent – to create a grayscale nail design and include a pop of colour!

Edited on Monday 26 July 2010 to Add:
The link to other entries for this PHD Colour Accent challenge.
This manicure has also been featured on Models Own Blog this weekend.


This is my submission:

Lacquer Boudoir Entry to PHD Challenge - Lippy Electric Leopard

Here is another look. The Models Own Bubblegum neon pink isn't showing up as neon vibrant in the photo than in person.

Lacquer Boudoir Entry to PHD Challenge - Lippy Electric Leopard

Lacquer Used:

Base Colour:Beauty UKSoft Grey3 coats
Stamp Plate:Konad M62KonadM57Leopard
Stamp Colour:Barry M293Grey1 coat
Lip Colour: Models Own 059 Bubblegum (Neon) 1 coat
Topcoats:Seche Vite83005Dry Fast Top Coat1 coat


Instructions:

  1. After base coat, I applied 3 coats of Beauty UK Soft Grey
  2. I stamped all my fingers except for the ring finger using Barry M Grey for the leopard pattern from Konad M57 plate.
  3. With a small brush, I drew mini lips randomly on my ring finger using Models Own Bubblegum.
  4. Then, by freehand again drew a bigger lip on the thumb again using Models Own Bubblegum.
  5. Going back to the ring finger, with a dotting pen, I drew some leopard pattern between the mini lips with Barry M Grey.
  6. To finish off, I used Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat to seal off everything and make it shiny.
Hope you like this manicure. I only have 4 Konad plates, so I was slightly limited of patterns so I decided to do something freehand. I ordered Bundle Monster plates last week, and they're on their way, can't wait! The challenge was fun, it really got me thinking with the limited plates I've had, I would definitely enter more challenges in the near future!

What do you think of this? Did you enter this challenge?
