NCC presents: Summary from January and February; collages

I've neglected my summary collage posts from Nail Challenge Collaborative so therefore I'm showing 2 months in a row here. :)

Above is February, the most recent one with the Typography theme. I think my fav here was the white negative space.

Above here are the January theme which was plain and simple, Purple. Here I have much harder to decide a fav, it stands in between my matte cartoon or the stamped gear. ^^

What do you think? Do you see any favorites among these? :)

KIKO - 291, swatch

I have showed this polish in a lot of nail art's lately so I thought it deserved to be seen alone as well. ;) 291 is a purple creme from KIKO covering in 2 simple coats, doesn't it look great? :D

Bought on sale for about 2 euro.

NCC presents: Negative space number nail art in white

Hi, time for my 4th typography inspired nail art for The Nail Challenge Collaborative. :D I knew in advance that this month would be all stamping and I decided that my forth should be numbers instead text. My nails are a bit too long for the number pattern so I quickly compromised and made a gradient to nude and stamped on top and created a negative space. Actually super happy with this one, sometime limitations can create awesome end results. ^^

Polishes used:
China Glaze - Sensuous (yup, the label has disappeared...)
Moyou special white nail polish
Essence - Wild White Ways
Born Pretty Store Image Plate - BP-39 (bought on a sale)

NCC presents: nail polish bottle nail art

Today I'm showing my 3rd typography nail art for the Nail Challenge Collaborative.

I'm not 100% happy with the result, the base polish feels a bit weird in this combo. XD And I redid my ring finger, I think my stamping has improved a lot but it's hard getting text straight. It's not perfect here, but good enough. :) What do you think? :)

Polishes used:
Dance Legend matte top coat
MoYou special nail polish - White
Born Pretty Store image plate BP-29

Claire's - Ditsy Floral Blue, swatch and layering

Here's a fun matte glitter from Claire's. They're a brand I've started to like since I found it in Germany.

Ditsy Floral Blue has matte middle tone floral shaped glitters, matte hot pink hexes, semi matte metallic hexes and matte white and super light matte pastel blue hexes combined with tiny white hexes in two sizes, all in a clear base. Below is two coats and the flower glitter was very easy to get up, no fishing required at all. As for application I dabbed the flowers a bit, as you do with big glitters. I decided to layer this over KIKO - 330, a warm toned pastel purple and I think the result looks really cute. Top coat is a must since of the glitter size.

Bought Ditsy Floral Blue at Claire's for 3.99 euro.

NCC presents: Black and white stamping nail art

Here is my second post for the Nail Challenge Collaborative this month with the theme typography.

Also, email me for more info if you are interested in joining this monthly challenge!

I decided to make a nail art in black and white with stamped details using a bornprettystore image with "do no cross" written all over. Afterwards I realize I should have edited the placing from horizontal to vertical.. but it is a learning process. I still manage to stamp my left hand better than my right but the practice is fun anyhow and it looks good enough irl. Hope you like it. :)

Polishes used:
Nordic Cap - NP12
MoYou special nail polish - White
BornprettyStore stamping plate - BP-66
Dance Legend matte top coat
