2013 Guest Posts

Hi Goddesses

I did a few Guest Posts for other bloggers this year, not all of which got shown.  A couple of these are some of my favourites from this year, so here's a quick recap.


First up is this neon brushstroke mani that I did for Sincerely Stephanie.

 I love the feathered effect, and it reminds me of Native Indian patterns.

This neonorama uses a white base (lately I'm loving NYC), Sally Hansen Limestone, OPI The It Color, w7 Flourescent Pink and OPI Roll In The Hague.

Then we have my guest post for Lucy's Stash - this was my disqualified entry for the piCture pOlish Blogfest because I used green acrylic paint for my leaves - gggrrrrrr.

Lucy has also really encouraged me at various times, so I wanted my mani to reflect the things I have learnt from her -
* use acrylics!  Lucy was the one who really pushed me to give it a go, and I am sooooo glad I did
* practice your brush control
* learn simple shapes, and apply them

So today we have something that looks like vintage roses, I guess.  It reminds me of wallpaper - now THAT would be a tranquil room.

I started off with 3 coats of piCture pOlish Beige, a fantastic neutral, and then added stripes using a thin striper and piCture pOlish Honeydew.


This mani appeared on Smashley Sparkles.

Today's mani is a rich feast for the eyes.  It's got plush red, real gold, and black melodrama.  

The base you've seen before during Bling Week - this is the lovely Cirque Curiosity, a shimmery red, with a layer of Cirque AU gold flakie top coat.

I then stamped over it with this fabulous circles design .... which I forgot to write down.  Sorry, Crumpet smacks self on bottom for being naughty.   I may not know what it is, but it looks cool, doesn't it lol.

I really love the dramatic play off between the 3 colours here, and we also need to give a shout out to Poshe - look at that gloss!
