#whencolourscollide challenge – Green & Pink

Hello everyone! I’m here with the latest #whencolourscollide challenge, and I have to admit, my heart sank when I saw it had green in it again! Thankfully this time stamping is allowed, and there are no restrictions on what shade of each colour to use. Happy to say I’ve come up with something I like! Oh yeah, and I’ve changed nail shape again – more … Continue reading #whencolourscollide challenge – Green & Pink

Accessorize Glass Slipper

Hello! I wrote last time about how I make up my manicure designs as I go along, well here’s another example! This one though started off with me wanting to use a new purchase, Accessorize Glass Slipper. I get seduced by the cute little Accessorize bottles every time I step in a store (thankfully there isn’t one in my city, or I’d own every polish … Continue reading Accessorize Glass Slipper

#whencolourscollide – Red & Pastel Blue

Others not so much – I’ve yet to successfully watermarble, my freehand sucks and a simple dotticure eludes me. I could just stick to what I’m good at, but where’s the fun in that? One thing I’ve never been much good at is putting colours together – not just nails, but clothing and decor too. I just tend to stick to safe combos.  Hopefully, this is about to change! I’ve recently discovered the When Colours Collide Facebook group, every two weeks they issue a challenge featuring a pair or trio of colours which you have to use to create a mani. At the end of the two weeks, everyone’s mani is added to a huge collage, which you can see at the end of this post. This fortnight the prompt is pastel blue and red. A combo I would never have dreamed of putting together!
