Pick n' Mix 52 Week Challenge: Plaid + Orange, Red, Teal

These nails seemed to take hours to do. I used striping tape to get the teal and red lines and had to wait until each stripe had fully dried before going on with the next line.

31 Day Challenge: Happiness

Other than getting my index finger covered in acetone this does make me smile. The knitted stamping plate I used is really what makes me happy, as soon as I got it I knew there was hundreds of ways I could use it.

31 Day Challenge: Waterspotting

I really don't like these nails, so much so I left cuticle oil on for the photo which I rarely do. I struggle with water marbling, and water spotting is a very similar technique. I didn't have any spray hand sanitiser, not sure if you can get it in the UK? I tried hairspray which didn't work. In the end I used acetone on an paintbrush to flick on to the water.

From the top ten polishes I chose my top three;

3) OPI - Do You Have This Color In Stock-Holm? - This purple is a gorgeous cream finish polish, it looks vibrant in the bottle but translates to the nails quite a bit darker. 

2) Nails Inc - New York Noir - This polish is a one coat black cream finish polish. It is great to wear alone, or as a base. I also found that I could use this to stamp with. Something which I have gotten a lot of use from during 2014.

1) W7 - Twilight - Meaning that Twilight is my favorite nail polish of 2014, I did struggle to choose between this and the black however the black wasn't special enough to win. This is a purple to navy (with a slight lean to pink) glass flecked duochrome polish, which works on it's own or over a dark base. I liked this polish so much I used it to create a 'dragons egg'. It is dark and magical and that is what I really like.
