Nail of the Day – Blue on Blue Orly Nail Polish

Another Monday has come!  I’m starting to love Mondays now, only because I get to try my hand at simple nail art.  Of course, there has been absolute fails, like last week’s Jin Soon Choi inspired nails.  Everyone at work thought I put some white-out (aka liquid paper) on my nails!! LOL!  massive fail.

 

This week though, I tried my best to be as steady as possible.  I decided to use Orly nail polish – In The Navy, a dark blue colour and Blue Belle, a sheerer metallic light blue colour.  The colour combination turned out pretty well!  I’m actually really loving it!

 

I decided to do something really really simple with dark blue base and round light blue spots.  I created the spots using reinforcement rings (you know the little round stickers you put around punched holes on paper).

Antipodean Beauties – Pop of Colour

I’ve been missing out challenges lately. BAD!  Sorry!  This week, however, I present to you..

Pop of Colour

 

Instead of one pop of colour, I thought I should do a look with a variety of colours that are nice and bright.  Why do one colour when you can have a few, right?  The colours I used were mainly blue and purple.

 

Well, here it is..
