Here’s another one where I knew even before the challenge what I wanted to do. I’ve been wanting to do this colour/pattern combo for ages and the delicate print task finally gave me the opportunity.
This is two coats of Alix Avien No 60 — the first polish ever I have to get a second bottle of because I’m running out (I blame the black and white challenge 😉 ).
I stamped this using Barry M Cobalt Blue and one of my favourite Konad plates.
Ooh, sweet china. 😀 And I’m half-way through the challenge now. 😀 😀
In other news, I’ve been running injury free for a few weeks now (also did a race last weekend) so I’m starting a half marathon training plan next week. Also defending my Master’s next week. Busy week.
If it feels like I haven’t done a pink Wednesday in forever, then it’s probably because I haven’t. 😉
So, here is one. I updated my mani of Barry M’s Fuchsia with a taped triangle in Wild and Crazy’s Anchorage — a perfect light gray one coater with silver micro glitter, yum! — and added a black rhinestone. I loooove those black rhinestones and I’ve had them forever, but this was my first time trying them out.
I know this is the day that’s all about pink, but look at Anchorage! It was among my first polishes and probably the cheapest I own 😮 but for me, it’s utter gray perfection. 🙂
I have two blurple cremes that I utterly adore and that are quite similar — H&M Blue My Mind and Misa’s Throw Me Something Purple Please. They both are on that fine line between blue and purple with Throw Me Something Purple Please just a smidge more on the purple side and a little bit less saturated. Honestly though, without having them side-by-side, most people wouldn’t tell the difference. 🙂
So, here is Throw Me Something Purple Please (picture it slightly more purple as my camera always favours blue) with a rainbow accent nail.
I used Alix Avien No 60 (a white creme) for the base of the accent nail and then I used a dotting tool (since I don’t own nail art brushes!) to create a rainbow in the following colours: China Glaze Hey Sailor! (red) Alix Avien No 180 (orange) Essence Sun Dancer (yellow) SpaRitual Yes, I Can! (green) Barry M Cobalt Blue (blue) and Alix Avien No 168 (purple).
I also went Orly shopping the other day and picked up two bottles each from the fall and holiday collections! 😀
