Nail Challenge Collaborative presents: Blue - Distressed


Hi all!

For my second blue mani this month, I've got something I love wearing, distressed nails. Paired with some textured nail studs.


Polishes:
  • Boulevard - silver
  • Boulevard - blue 1
  • Boulevard - blue 2
  • Boulevard - blue 3
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward


Base: 2 coats of the silver or the darkest blue. Using all the blue polishes I added distressed swipes across the silver nails. Added studs on the plain blue nails and topped everything with Elemental Ward.



Do you ever use the distressed technique? I might have several distressed mani's waiting to go on the blog....

Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does All That Glitters - Feathers


Hi all!

Today my glitter is in two glitter polishes. The first is a crelly glitter and the second is a holo perfection glitter polish. I combined them with some dainty feather stamping.


Polishes:
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Gratuitous Cameo
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Ride Eternal, Shiny and Chrome
  • Mundo de Unas - 6
  • Mundo de Unas - 34
  • Mundo de Unas - 18
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used Hēhē plate 086.





Base: 2 coats of Gratuitous Cameo or Ride Eternal, Shiny and Chrome. I added Elemental Ward to smooth it out, stamped with silver on top of Cameo. I mixed the blue and grey stamping polishes to create a custom colour to stamp on my silver nails. Ended with more top coat.



And another bonus image with direct light to show off the holo glitter polish. I absolutely adore this holo glitter polish. I even own a back up *winks*.


Are there any polishes you have back ups of (aside from your favourite black, white and top coat)?

Love, Brethil

Base: 2 coats of Gimme. I sponged on Kandii and topped it with Elemental Ward.


Of course there's glitter everywhere, even on my skin...

The Digit-al Dozen does All that Glitters - Dark Minter


Hi all!

Today I've got some holo glitter for you! Just a simple glitter gradient with stamping on top, but the holo just makes it look amazing.


Polishes:
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Dark Matter
  • Essence - Holo Rainbow - 02 Holo Maniac
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used stamping plate BPL-026.



Base: 1 coat of Dark Matter. I added the mint green holo with the brush. I tried sponging it on, but the holo glitter is actually silver, the mint green colour comes from the base the glitter is suspended in. I added a coat of Elemental Ward before stamping the leaves on using Dark Matter. Ended with more Elemental Ward.



You can't go wrong with holo glitter, right?

Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does All That Glitters - 40


Hi all!

Welcome to my first full Digit-al Dozen week! The theme is All That Glitters. I'm starting this week off on my 40th birthday... although I don't feel any older than 30 *winks*. So, happy birthday to me. I have this entire week off work to relax and get used to this new age.


Polishes:
  • Polish My Life - My Violet
  • Essence - 183 be my lucky star
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward 

I also used MoYou London's Festive 57.



Base: My Violet nails 2 coats, the other nails 3 coats of be my lucky star (a textured polish). Using thin rectangular glitter I created the number 40 on my nails. I stamped my thumb and little finger using My Violet. I sealed the 40 with Elemental Ward.


Of course I had to add a snowflake, because I just love them...


I had a lovely lunch with my mum today, what do you do to celebrate your birthday?

Love, Brethil

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Metallic + one colour


Hi all!

Today's the first #26gnai for 2018! And we're going metallic! One of my favourite metallic polishes is Book of Shadows by Cirque. It's just this lovely rosey metallic that just goes with everything. I paired it with a cool toned brown polish called Park Ave from NYC. And more snowflakes, because that's my thing.


Polishes:
  • Cirque - Book of Shadows
  • NYC - 246 Park Ave
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used some Whats Up Nails nail vinyls, the merry snowflake ones.


Base: 3 coats of Book of Shadows. I applied the nail vinyls two ways, I placed the snowflake on the nail and then added Park Ave, or I applied the stencil with the cutout snowflake and then applied Park Ave. After adding my top coat Elemental Ward I was done.



Hope you enjoyed yet another snowflake mani.

Love, Brethil
