Textured Quilted Manicure - Tri-Polish Tuesday

Continuing with the blue & pink theme for Tri-Polish Tuesday but with something entirely different from previous weeks - a textured quilted manicure!
Textured Quilted Nails
I painted all my nails except the ring finger with Maybelline Dazzling Diva, a fine silver glitter. I painted my ring finger with Claire's Sand Effect in Silver. Once my base polish was dry, I used strips of striping tape to mark out the quilted pattern on the rest of the nails. Its really important to make sure your base is dry - a quick dry top coat can help here.

Hot Pink Manicure with a cherry blossom accent - GOT Polish

I have been looking forward to this manicure because I like wearing a pink manicure from time to time - they are like the equivalent of comfort food in manicures for me! Nothing too out there, sweet and pretty!
I love OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips and wanted to keep the focus on the polish itself. So I kept my nails simple and just added some rhinestones to the pink painted nails. For my accent nail, I painted it with OPI Alpine Snow and stamped it with Konad Black.

Coralicious Leopard Print for Golden Oldie Thursday

The prompt for the day is a Coral. I chose a very bright coral for my manicure today. And I thought it would be fun to add a leopard print to go with the bright nails!

It looks a bit red in the photos but the coral I have on here is Rimmel 60 Seconds 430 Coralicious. I love that name too! And this is the perfect summer polish - so bright and cheerful!

Speckled Colour Block Mosaic Manicure - Tri-Polish Tuesday!

I have the speckled blue, pink and yellow Models Own polishes here again in a colour block mosaic manicure.
I started with a base of Barry M Matt White and waited for it to dry completely. I did the nails one by one - marking out the blocks with striping tape. I filled the blocks in with Models Own Speckled Egg Nail Polishes in Duck Blue, Dove Pink and Goose Yellow.

Roses and Pearls Spring Manicure - GOT Polish Challenge

I have another Spring Manicure on the blog today! The colours I have used in this manicure are just perfect for spring, in my opinion. And when you think of Spring, you have to have some flowers so I did some roses on my accent nail. And to top it off, I thought I would add some pearl studs.

Starting from the thumb, the nail polishes used are Revlon Cupid, Barry M Gelly Greenberry, Rimmel 311 Spring Yellow, Barry M Matt White and Barry M Gelly Blueberry. On the accent nails I did freehand roses with the colours on the other nails and the leaves with Sally Hansen Insta Dri Emerald Express.
