31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 28

28 Oct

Squee! Getting so close to the end!

Today’s challenge is ‘inspired by a flag’. Now I dunno about other polish fiends, but since the Olympics resulted in an outright explosion of flag-and-other-patriotic manis, I became a little bit sick of them. I wanted to do something a little different, and as MaSucree said, “A lot more unique!” than a lot of the other flag manis out there.

I decided to spell out ‘flag’ in nautical signal flags!

I did it for the lulz ^_^

I really love the ‘L’ and am keen to do checkered nails again! The ‘F’ was a complete nightmare though. Signal flags are square, so trying to do the diamond really didn’t translate so well >_<

Polishes used were:

  • China Glaze Hey Sailor (red)
  • China Glaze First Mate (blue)
  • China Glaze Liquid Leather (black)
  • Santee Beach Yellow
  • Jordana White / Jordana Pop Art Contemporary White

I still think this was a fun one to do, and I’m happy that I came up with something a little different 😀 I got the inspiration from another Studio Ghibli film, Kokuriko-zaka Karaor From Up on Poppy Hill. The main character raises signal flags every morning in memory of her father.

Til tomorrow~

Del’s 31 Day Nail Challenge: Days 1-3

3 Oct

Gosh I have been so epic fail D: I had all these things planned for the blog, and then BLAM! World of Warcraft has stolen my soul again. I know it’s a pathetic excuse, so I’m not offering it as an excuse. I offer it as an explanation :O

Seriously, so addicted again. *shakes fist at Blizzard*

ANYWAY! I’m going to be posting a few things in one post today, because I had intended to start the 31 day challenge thing that every nail blogger and her dog has already done, on the first day of the month… It’s now the third. Eep! Luckily I actually had some photos set aside early for the first few days!

Delindel’s Galaxy NotD

15 Jan

Hmm hmm hmm, let’s conveniently overlook the fact that I’ve been silent for almost a week now, and get right back into it with awesomeness and a bang! THE BIG BANG. I decided to make my very first attempt at some fancy nail art (i.e. not just a tape mani or some lovely layering) today, and thought I’d share both hands with you – the not-so-good practice on my left hand, and my slightly better-looking right hand when I started to get the hang of it XD

I am of course talking about the galaxy nail trend that has been around for a few months now. I used this tutorial over on Beautylish, but I’ve seen other tutorials that are basically the same thing floating around the internet.

Anyway, while they are by absolutely no means perfect, I’m quite pleased with them as my first try ^_^
