Hair loops…

So I thought mushing the colours of all the different elements (water, rocks, tree) into an ‘unusual’ ombre, and I think it kinda worked! I swithered between painting trees on top, or her loops of hair braids – it’s obvious what one won, but I just hope I made the right decision.

Eye See You…

So this time I was inspired by the models wonderful eyes and lashes, so beautiful! I just wish I had some false lashes laying around as they would have looked way better on the design than cut up strips of painted paper…

This design is also quite fitting for Halloween, if you stare at them for long enough they do start to get a bit creepy especially because they’re not symmetrical. Obviously the lashes are not for practical every day wear, but after taking them off, it’s a totally wearable design.

Scaled Mountains…

So as soon as I saw the sort of fish scale mountains, I knew I wanted to use my new round glitter from Cosmic Glows. I cannot wait to use these again to create a mermaid look with my new charms from BornPrettyStore too, it’s going to be so pretty.

CraggyRocks…

So ModelsOwn are having another ‘1234thumbwar’ competition. Head on over to their Instagram or Facebook for more details. Here’s my first entry! Can you tell what part has inspired me? Correct, the rocks to the left of the picture.

ModelsOwn: Eyeshadow Leopard…

So this is probably my last entry in to the ModelsOwn competition as it closes in a few days. This time round (which is the 5th time) I took inspiration from the models eye-shadow and combined it the little toy leopard in her sash – the outcome being a ‘quirky’ take on leopard print, even if I didn’t have the correct colour palette…

ModelsOwn: Daisy…

So after using studs* from BornPrettyStore in the OMD3 Challenge, I thought I’d try and do the same to create daisies inspired by the earrings the model is wearing.

They didn’t turn out quite as pretty, mainly because I forgot the caviar bead ring which helps tidy it up a little, but I suppose I achieved what I was aiming for – a daisy. Seeing as the studs are actually multi-coloured, I had to paint them white which is why they look a little gloopy too. If I had taken more time, it would have looked better – however they are a little impractical to wear and I knew I’d be taking them off immediately

ModelsOwn: SaranSmoosh…

So, third entry into the competition! I’m determined to win those prizes, it’s an amazing bundle to get a hold of. (I’d also probably have to buy some more storage for all the polish…) I decided to use cling-film, ‘saran wrap’, inspired by DumbGirlNails as she introduced a different way to use it to me. I’ve always used scrunched up cling-film to blot on the polish, however her technique was to place the cling-film over the wet polish and just smoosh it about. The way Michelle’s nails came out are so pretty, I think I need a little more practice as I ended up with my base coat lifting up and everything. However, over-all, I’m happy with how the whole thing turned out.

ModelsOwn: Second try…

So this is my second entry for the ModelsOwn competition. This time I was inspired by the cable-tie looking spikes poking out of the sash. Maybe a little bit safe and boring considering how exciting the photo is but…

ModelsOwn: #1234ThumbWar…

So ModelsOwn are holding a competition (#1234ThumbWar) where you create nail designs inspired by a photo they posted. Unfortunately my orange photographed more red, and now all it reminds me of is Cadbury Cream Eggs! This is my first entry, you can enter as many times as you fancy so expect some more from me.
