Rainbow Challenge, Day 5 - Purple

I have been proper looking forward to this day. Now we are getting to the end of the spectrum that I love. But as all good things go to pants, loads of stuff cropped up so I couldn't post yesterday.

However, I decided to go with a Magnetics polish I hadn't tried before because it was a finish I hadn't used this week. As I haven't used my China Glaze Magnetix 'Drawn to You' I thought I would give it a whirl.

I already have magnetx that I purchased from Ebay, so I don't have the official China Glaze ones. I chose the star as it is the prettiest, although it doesn't give as dramatic effect as the straight and diagonal ones.

So, without further ado here are the pictures...

As always these are the other girls taking part, so please take time to have a look at their fabby efforts

Rainbow Challenge, Day 5 - Blue

For me we are still in a nice end of the scale, and it was easier than I thought to pick my blue. My initial thoughts were China Glaze Frostbite as I just LOVE that colour. But today is very warm and humid so I didn't want to slap something to remind me of the winter all over my fingers.

So, with that in mind I have gone with Miss Sporty bright, but light blue, 456 with a top coat of Models Own Indian Ocean.

I love Miss Sporty polishes as they are really inexpensive, but they have lovely colours and they apply really well for me. Anyway. What do you think?

As always, please check out the blogs of the other lovely ladies taking part.

Rainbow Challenge - Day 4 - Green

Well after all my moaning yesterday, I just want to say how much I love green. Green is fantastic, I love all green polishes, light green, dark green, bright green, dull green, metallic green. You add green to the name and I am at the front of the queue begging to put it on my nails. However, this has given me loads of difficulty in what to put on my nails today.

So the short list was as follows...

Left to right

China Glaze Kiwi Cool Ada
Barry M 290 Spring Green
Accessorize Aquamarine Metallic
NYC Mint Macaroon
China Glaze Cha Cha Cha
Models Own Emerald Green
Catrice 740 King Of Green
Catrice 600 After Eight
China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise

Firstly i wanted to do something different to what I have done before, so that is no stamping, no feature nails and no glitter. So out come the stamps. ( also a fabby idea to use two different greens - yay!)

So I decided to go for a light and dark, and had two untrieds that fitted the bill, so bargain. Here it goes...

Mint Macaroon base colour, with a stamp from BM plate 204 in Catrice King of Greens. It is so refreshing after that revolting yellow I almost wept at the beauty of it all. ( slight exaggeration there ladies and gents)

Must admit, I think it would have looked nice with a matte topcoat rather than my normal Seche Vite, but maybe I will use that for another date in our challenge?

As always if you enjoyed this please take the time to have a look at some of the other contributers to this challenge, they are very talented ladies.

Rainbow Nail Challenge - Day 3 - Yellow

Okay, well my first admission is I really really dislike yellow. I don't own ANY yellow clothes, and I only have 4 yellow nail varnishes and one of those came in a set so I didn't choose it!

So, what i did. I wanted to make the yellow as little noticeable as possible, so I covered it up with chunky glitter. If I had chance I would have covered it up with fire!

So what do you think? I don't think it is too bad, although I will never see this colour on my fingers again!

Rainbow Nails Challenge - Day 2 - Orange...

I am going to admit now that orange really isn't my favourite colour. However, due to a recent donation from my lovely mum I did get into it a tad.

Well you asked for orange and you are going to get it.

I started with these, I couldn't choose a favourite. So, had to improvise

The polishes I have used are.... ( from left to right)

Miss Sporty 452
Technic - Juicy Jelly
Color Club - unnamed (came in a set)
Nina Ultra Pro - Orange Flame
Color Club - unnamed ( came in a set)
Miss Sporty - 326

I used Miss Sporty 452 as my base, and my thumb developed spots of the lovely Technic Juicy Jelly

Then came some dots of the colour club peach on my index finger

Then we got some dots on my middle finger with the lovely neon Orange Flame

Dots on my ring finger in Colour Club orange sparkly no named!

Then finally my pinky gets some dots in Miss Sporty 326

And this is the final result on all the nails!
