Sailor moon challenge: Sailor Venus

I am in such a hurry this will be a quick post. Venus - she's cute but I've never was too much of a fan. Thou her attacks usually looked like a lot of fun.

For this look I wanted to make the same color scheme as on her, I wanted to make the 3 big bows she wore, her stars and hearts she uses in battles and her Venus symbol.

Hope you like it :)




For the look I used:
China Glaze GR8
Ruby Kisses She a goldigger
Essence Do you speak love?, Sunset in paradise, My sunny side
Catrice Earnie & birdy
Rhinestones 
Hearts and stars fished out from two no named Bichuns 

Here is she in action <3

7 deadly sins challenge: Wrath

''Get mad trying a technique you know will be a fail'' were the directions for this weeks Wrath challenge. On a personal note I get angry a lot and am only mediocre at any nail art technique. So I had a lot to choose from. I choose the nail stickers that have been haunting me recently. I had no luck with stickers so far. But for this look it turned out great - some Pride starts to erupt here :)

As a base I used Essence stamp me!black then I made a gradient with Essence night in Vegas (flakies) and China Glaze Luxe & lush (shards). Then I added the stickers from the Born pretty store :) But they were relay 3D so I added 3 coats of Essence gel look top coat :)

I am so in love with this look so this is uber picture heavy :)


 
Here is the gradient before the stickers :)

SWHDNAC: Reptiles vs. LoL Rammus the Armordillo

I had to first of all google what all falls under reptiles. High school is far away. In the game League of Legends there is an abundance of creatures right for thics challenge I could choose between a crocodile and a turtle. *I don't play any of them much* But I had no time to do this look so I opened my LoL picture vault and here was Rammus art :)

So hi's a turtle with spikes that spins and for me personally is super hard to play. The most interesting thing about his is that he does no say much like all the other champions. But just the other day I met the nicest player in the game and he was playing Rammus so I am dedicating this look to him *you know who you are sweetie* :)




Molten armor Rammus

For the look I made a base gradient to match the lava armor hes having in the game. The gradient is made with Catrice Marilyn & me (red), Copper cabana (orange) and Birdy reloaded! (yellow). Over it all I added some Barry M Burgundy croc *how fitting is this for this challenge and the fact Rammus is a reptile*. Then I added some hex glitters from Kleancolor Chunky copper. I relay like how this turned out :)

This is what I choose for this month an all Catrice cast: Denim Blue (blue), Red roberts ford (red) and ASHley (gray).

So this is my 1st day mani - next to the 3 colors I also added Essence stamp me!black to make the wave decals and some fimo slice particles becouse I am so obssesed with kawaii nail art now :) And a few striping attempts :)

TNCC: Week #3 vs. LoL Nidalee the Bestial Huntress

Okee more stamps with League of Legends champions. This week it's Nidalee. I am not rly a fan of her as a in game champion but she is the only one with animal print on her and I am a big sucker for animal print. Dunno she throws spears, set traps and transforms into a Ice age Diego type kitty - a classic sexy cave woman type champion :)

As inspiration I used the 'Jerseylicious skin' since it has leopard spots :)
Hope you like it :)



'Jerseylicious' Leopard Nidalee
For the look I used Essence LE My sunny side as base on my index finger the others have Essence Boho chic. The stamps are made with Constance Carroll Ebony and QA8 plate. Then I filled in the spots with Catrice Oh my goldness! on the index finger and Essence Gorgeous bling bling on the other. As a top coat I used Make up factory top coat no.105. I rly like how it turned out :) Even thou the top coat kind off smeared the spots :)

Sunday stamping: Over a skittle base

I did this look as a comparison then it turned out the colors look way to similar on the camera so I added some matte glitter, matte top coat and some stamps. I must say sometimes the rule: less is more relay does apply to nails.

So here is what we have:
Pinkie and middle are Catrice Wrapped around my finger.
Ring finger has Catrice Blue Cara ciao as base and Index finger has Catrice Raspberry fields forever as base. Over them all I added Sation Men-ipulation matte glitters. I love this topper! A very unique black and white combination. I added some BeauyUK matt top coat. Over it all I added a stamp A48 with Barry M silver foil.
I realy liked the pre-stamp look better :)





Hope you like it :)

White, Kleancolor Chunky holo clover, also Essence High waist pink, Catrice Hugo moss and Planet tokyo and Chine glaze In the lime light (neon). Also I added some rhinestones for her bow details and flowers couz they remind me of her earrings :)

7 deadly sins challenge: Sloth

''(Only if you want) Create a manicure inspired by your laziness ... or whatever ... I'm so tierd''

That was the instruction for this look. I had it all planned out - make a mani inspired by Sloth from the Full metal alchemist Brotherhood anime. There all the evil guys were actually manifestations of 7 deadly sins. And then sloth took over...
As base I used Catrice LE Nude & rude ... Then I fell asleep *SLOTH FTW* and the nails weren't totaly dried so now they looked like there are scars all over the base. Which is kindoff fitting becouse sloth in the show got his ass kicked before he died :) So I rolled with it :)

I made his eyes on my index and ring finger with Essence stamp me! black and white. The red details I made with Catrice LE Madame Butterfly - the same as the red homunculus details on my pinkie. My ring finger are the evil shadows that always around the homunculus in the story. The base is Essence stamp me! Black then I made the eyes and mouth with Essence stamp me! White. I lined them all with Essence LE I love my jeans. The eyes are made with Models own Hedonist.

I hope you like it :) or not I don't care I'm to tierd :)


Here si Sloth in the show - falling asleep during battle *raise your hand if you can relate* :)

TNCC: Week #2 vs. LoL Jayce the Defender of Tomorrow

Some ladies like policemen, some like firemen, some like army men I LOVE men in business suits and tuxedos! So suck it sweat pants industry :)

So when the Debonair Jayce skin came out on V-day I was in love. Jayce on his own is a sexy character - I mean c'mon a snappy dressed millionair with a big hammer what is not to love? And I love playing him couz he's so damn versatile - long range and up close meele :)

So I hope this won't be considered cheating from the group since only 1 finger is stamped but I rly don't have any gentleman like stamps :)


Debonair Jayce <3 note the sexy hair and car he is leaning on <3
So I wanted to make a look inspired by this sexy man and here is what I did ...

Index and ring fingers are supposed to be his hair <3 Somehow it turned out like angel wings :) Base is Essence stamp me! black, the white is free handed with Essence stamp me! white. Then I added some gray streaks with Catrice Captain Sparrows boat.
The middle finger is made with Essence stamp me! white and black as base. I made the buttons with Barry M Gold foil or Catrice Captains Sparrows boat (also used for stripes on the shirt) and Barry M Silver foil.
Pinkie finger has the base Essence stamp me! white and I made an overlapping stamps with BM14 and Essence LE Soak up the sun and Do you speak love?



''Our future will be bright''

*I do believe that handsome :)*
