Jigsaw Nails

Hey everyone!

These are my jigsaw nails. I’ve always wanted to try these out! They look really good but they did take a long time to do. I used, Essie (blanc), OPI (Strawberry Margarita), and The Face Shop (light purple).

I’m looking forward to wearing them out tonight. Every second Tuesday Greg hosts a Trivia night in one of our local bars. It’s always fun to sit with my friends and do the quiz. I’m always really proud of him and the effort he makes to keep it really fun. Tonight is the last night because we are leaving in a couple of weeks. All our friends will be there and I’m really looking forward to the evening ¬†and of course rocking these nails!!! ūüôā¬†1

Day 11 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Beach

DSC_2934

I did it, I finally did it! I nailed gradient nails! Yay!!! It’s taken me MONTHS!! This makes me so glad I decided to do this challenge! Thanks again to Posh Alcoholic¬†¬†and Mommy Loves Nail Polish for setting this up! I watched a great video on you tube on how to do this manicure and I just followed it step by step. I also checked out this great step by step picture tutorial created by my friend Lekker Lacquer here. I used a make up sponge for the gradient instead of the black nail art sponges I previously used. Then I used my thin black nail art polish and drew on the palm trees. And now, with these nails, I feel I need to be holding a cocktail! ūüôā¬†DSC_2937 DSC_2940

Day 6 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Sun

DSC_2767

I was kinda stumped when it came to the sun theme. I wasn’t sure what to do then I decided to go with a ¬†solar flare type theme. I used OPI’s Color So Hot It Berns and then using clingfilm I dabbed Sally Hansen’s Lightening over it. I like how it turned out. The pictures with the bluish tinge were taken using daylight. The others are from my¬†light box¬† I’m having some color issues at the moment with my camera so I’m¬†experimenting¬†with different light etc.¬†DSC_2774 DSC_2809 DSC_2822
