Instagram Fun Twin Nails no2

Continuing with my recent Twin and Mani Swap series …
Today I have another #bestietwinnails post for you that I did with the lovely Kim ig @kimmarieex.
We chose a more simple, elegant design and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Our inspiration came from a design by ig @newlypolished that Kim liked. 
Here is the original design that we based our nails on.

image

Here is my recreation. I had some trouble getting the design as I wanted with the stripping tape as my nails are a different shape.

image

Here is Kim’s recreation. I think she has done an amazing mani and got the pattern perfectly.

image

Here are both pictures together

image

I would like to thank Kim for joining me with this I had so much fun and love our chats over on Kik…….

Collaboration for Autism on instagram Roar for Autism

The lovely @amcpolish on instagram decided to do a collaboration called #roarforautismawareness where those who decided to contribute did a blue mani with animal print. Such an amazing idea to raise awareness for this very much misunderstood disorder. Of course I had to contribute a design. We are not to post our contribution design until after the collaboration picture has been posted so I created my design and emailed it off.

image

Then excitedly waited to see the completed collaboration.
This was my design done on my cinderella (dominant) hand.

image

Kept it simple with a vertical gradient of 2 no name blues topped with CG Fairy Dust and blue acrylic for the leopard print.
And here is the completed collaboration picture.

Can you find mine…..let me know.

Autism Awareness Nail Art Challenge

April as some of you may know is Autism Awareness Month. Many people do many different things to try and raise awareness for this much misunderstood disorder.
As I am part of the wonderful nail community I found a challenge specifically for this.

image

image

I am quite proud of myself that I managed to do all of the challenges although sometimes I did combine 2 into 1.
Blue Flowers

image

I really love how these turned out. I used a no name nude base and everything else was done with acrylic paints.

Rainbows

image

So bright and colourful with puzzle shaped clouds. Base of Sinful Colours Cinderella and the rest done with acrylic paints.

Blue Gradient / Ombre

image

Simple gradient using Sinful Colours Snow me White and Colour Club Endless Summer with random glitter placement.  How hard is it to do the random placement without it looking neat ?

Puzzle Pieces

image

As you can probably tell from the next picture I prepared this in advance colours is ed are on the net picture description and used acrylic paint to do the puzzle pieces.

Ruffian

image

Not something I have done before and deffinately need practice. I used Models Own Duck from the Speckled Eggs Collection and Colour Club Halo Hues Blue Heaven. Accent nails I also added China Glaze For Audrey and Colour Club Endless Summer.

Awareness Ribbon

image

Used a base of Freckles Polush Blue Lagoon and the rest was done with acrylic paint. I didn’t feel competent enough to try the ribbons with the puzzle pieces pattern on them so did them separately.

Blue Fishtail and Handprint (2 challenges combined)

image

Really not happy with how my fishtail braid turned out as had some trouble with the opacity of one of the polishes but do want to do more of these. I followed a great tutorial from @emilynailsxo on instagram http://instagram.com/emilynailsxo and you can find her awesome blog here http://nailsxo.com. I love how braids look so will deffinately keep practicing using this tutorial. Guess you know what they say “practice makes perfect”. Quite happy with the hand prints although you can’t see them all that well.

Plastic / Saran Wrap

image

image

A technique I have wanted to try but hadn’t got round to it. So was really happy being able to do this and loved the way it came out so much that I even did my cinderella (dominant) hand aswell. CC Blue Heaven, Endless Summer and CG For Audrey. So happy with this. Added studs from Ebay on my swatch hand in dark and light blue.

I really enjoyed doing this challenge to raise awareness for Autism as it is a cause very close to my heart as my 3 yr old granddaughter Bella has this disorder so I see and hear the negative and ignorant comments and reactions first hand.
Please take abit of time to read about Autism and make this disorder more understood in our word.
Thank you
Lisa
