Nail Art For Funn’s Family Manicures!!

 

 

 

 

 

I thought I’d share some manicures I’ve done recently. Since I can’t wear polish to work it makes sense to do my mam’s nails and sometimes my aunt’s too!

I’ve actually been painting my mam’s nails since I came home in March. We started with simple colours, then I got her hooked on nail jewels and now stamping! Yay!! πŸ™‚

I used OPI’s Barefoot in Barcelona, and red Konad stamping polish with Bundle Monster’s plate 306.

This is a replica of a manicure I did last year. I showed mam the picture and she liked so I recreated it for her (with the nail jewels of course!)

She’s even learning how to ‘pose’!

This manicure was for my aunt. She wanted Autumn colours so we chose a silver Sephora polish by OPI, Social Climber Β and OPI’s Tomorrow Never Dies. Love, love, love, this colour, and this combo!

My Aunt was diggin’ her chevrons!

Last week we adventured in lace. Mam chose the colours and loved the result! She thought they looked delicate and ladylike. We used Estee Lauder’s Dilettante and Lilac Leather.

I’m thinking I’ll introduce her to textured polish next, and maybe stripes? What do you think? Let me know!!!

Henna Style Stamping

1

How much do I love stamping manicures? A lot! For this manicure I wanted the stamping polish to really pop. I think Barefoot in Barcelona matched up really well with my red Konad stamping polish. It reminds me of henna art. I used Bundle Monster stamping plate BM 306.

It’s a little strange not having to do a specific manicure every day now that the pre-spring challenge contest is over! Congratulations to the winners Short and Sweet in Texas and Up Close and Polished. Both girls created beautiful manicures throughout the contest. πŸ™‚

Day 1 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest (PSCC1) Yellow

1It’s my first time entering in a challenge and I’m a little nervous! I hope my manis don’t look too crappy beside all the others! Today’s challenge was yellow. I used Ciate Big Yellow Taxi, Bundle Monster Plate 311 (BM-311). I also used black Konad stamping polish and gold beads that I picked up in Japan last year and never got around to using.

Thanks to Polish Alcoholic and Mommy Loves Nail Polish for setting this up!
