Artsy Wednesday - Blue


The theme for Artsy Wednesday this week is Blue!

I had a plan for this week that sounded great in my head. It ended up being a disaster! I did this design on my pinky and hated it but though I should keep going, maybe it would look OK once I had finished. Wrong. I did two more nails and gave up. Here's my failed attempt at blue nails:


Ewwwwww! I started with China Glaze - Secret Peri-Wink-le and then stamped with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Blue It using Bundle Monster plate BM10 (first set). I used the stamp for a guide to keep my beads and rhinestones straight. Then I applied some top coat in the middle of the stamp and started placing the beads. 

Moving on...I though I'd try another design and it was fine until I smudged two fingers!



For this one I used a base of China Glaze - Secret Peri-Wink-le and the stripes are China Glaze - Dorothy Who?.

    1. I didn't leave it on long enough for it to dry so I was able to slide most of it off :)

  8. In the first one, the colour of the blue rhinestones against the secret peri-wink-le is actually gorgeous. You definitely had a nice colour scheme going.

    The second one is simply lovely.

  9. Oh, one of those days, I know them hahahaha.
    I like the second attempt, and am pretty sure the first one would have been awesome too, but look at the bright side, if it had dried completely it would have been murder to remove... :)
