• Hi everyone!


    Another episode of My polish, your plate where Michelle and I challenge each other to do a manicure with the polish one of us chose and the stamping plate picked by the other. This time Michelle went for OPI Was It All Just a Dream? from the Grease collection of 2018 and I chose the daisy-like image from the fifth row, second column of Lina Feeling Shapely! 05. Let me show you what my version of the combination looks like:

    A couple of days ago I had some time to spend while waiting for my online meeting to begin and I ended up on a website that allows you to generate color palettes. So I clicked a bit, clicked some more and I ended up with a palette of dark brown, pale peach and coral... and I thought it would look great on my nails. So after the meeting, I went through my stash, selected some pretty colors and here's the result:

    The 22nd installment of the 52 week nail art challenge is Science... and I was totally lost when it came to thinking up an idea for science nail art. So I turned to Google and looked at science-related pictures. After some clicking I ended up with a series of pictures of DNA strands under a very strong microscope. I haven't been able to figure out why but all of them were dark blue with lighter, almost glowing blueish strands (maybe a lighting thing or coloring to help them stand out better). And there it was, the inspiration for my nails:

    As May is coming to an end, here's another installment of the Friday Triad manicures. This month I got to pick a manicure for Juanita, Michelle and myself to use as inspiration for our own nails. I chose this beautiful design by Jeanette from La Dame Nails. I love the mix of designs and the shiny foil so I decided to try and incorporate that in my manicure, but I didn't feel like doing animal print. Instead, I opted for flowers and leaves. So without further ado, here's my version:

    This week's prompt is Pet. We don't have pets at the moment but ages ago I was the proud servant of the sweetest little cat, and I do mean little as even the vet repeatedly told me she was really tiny, even when she was 18+ years old. I've had to say goodbye to her years ago, but at times I still miss that warm, purring bundle on my lap while I'm working at the computer. But, as my husband has developed an allergy to cats, the only ones that will enter our house are the ones on my nails:

    I guess the title says it all, even though the water is actually acetone 😉 I had so much fun doing this and it's just about the easiest thing ever. Let me show you what I did:

    Another week, another manicure for the 52 week nail art challenge. This week's prompt is Gradient and I went just about nuts with all the possibilities. I finally settled on coral to nude polishes and some stamping on top:

    The second My polish, your plate for this month and again a blue one, but I'm not complaining, I love blue! This time Michelle picked the squiggly lines at the top of Pueen plate 107 as image and I chose Color Club Crystal Baller as polish. Let me show you what I did with the selected items:
