Tie-dye water marble in black and purple

#clairestelle8challenge had 'out of comfort zone' as a theme and it was quite obvious that water marble should be my choice.😝 I ended up with something looking like a tie dye, or octopus tentacle. I dunno. But I liked it.

Polishes used:
China glaze - Violet Vibes
Depend cosmetics - nr039
Depend cosmetics - matte

Nail Challenge Collaborative - Winter nail art, summary

As I mentioned before Collages might pop up. In January the theme for Nail Challenge Collaborative was winter. I've already posted my 4 manis on IG but I wanted to show them to you here too. :)

One gradient with Ninja Polish - Melted snowman. XD

Two manis stamped with snow flakes.

And one freehand of a poor polar bear on a melting piece of ice. Done with nail polish. ^_^ This is obviously my favorite.

Feel free to join this monthly nail art challenge. Find us at Facebook by searching for Nail Challenge Collaborative. :)

Here's a simple design for another Instagram challenge called When Colours Collide, this time the color theme was Silver&grey, Metal studs and a water body tattoo which I used on my nail as an accent.

Hello 2017 & Penguin freehand nail art

Needless to say 2016 wasn't my year for many reasons. Personal issues made my motivation at the bottom and my nail art'ing was sparse. To make it worse I had computer problems (which of course could have been solved with an excellent economy). To sum it up, all things which could go wrong at the same time did. I hope 2017 will be much better. :)

I'm not really expecting anyone of my old followers to still be around. I feel like I'm doing this for my self. Building up my searchable archive as I intended before, to easier see what I've done and my improvements etc.

I'm that kind of person who likes things in order. Therefore I debated with my self how I should handle the blog thing. I've posted things on IG which I haven't posted here. Should I try to catch up? Should I give up and just keep doing IG only? I've decided for a yes and no on the catching up, I won't force it though. I like the routine to post the same content on both channels on same dates.

So, I've updated my blog design a bit. Not sure I want to keep Blogger though, suddenly it feels awfully dated, but that's for another day. This is better than nothing for the moment.

First up is this penguin nail art for an IG challenge called Glamnailschallenge. Simple freehand with nail polish. Actually my first ever penguin nail art. :) And I'm really proud of it.
