Reddit 52 Week Challenge: Rainbow

WOO! More rainbows! As you can probably guess by the name of this blog, rainbows are one of my favourite things. If I could choose "rainbow" as a favourite colour, I would. So, I know I did those little cloud dudes with rainbows last week, but this is something a bit different!

Rainbow splatter! This was actually pretty fun and easy to do. But be warned - it was messy. This was full on toothbrush splattering. There was paint everywhere. But look at it! Look at the pretty!

Little cloud dudes with buckets who like rainbows

Hi! Everyone calm down! I'm alive! OK, so you probably haven't been in a mad panic over my absence, but I'm back anyway. I've been all kinds of busy lately. We're planning a house plus I'm trying to get as much Christmas shopping out of the way now as I can and occasionally attempting to have a social life.

This lil bit of nail art is actually from a much larger picture (with a lot more going on) - the idea is part of a painting that I'll finish one day. I've titled this "Little cloud dudes with buckets who like rainbows". I think that about sums it up. They just want to be colourful. Aww..

Reddit 52 Week Challenge: Black and white

It's time for another week of the Reddit Laqueristas 52 Week Challenge. This week's theme is black and white. I have no idea how I came up with this idea. I decided to do some bunnies.. at night. I think it's pretty cute.

NAILgasm documentary - my set of nails!

Hello ladies! I have something a bit special to share today. I'm sure a lot of you have heard of the NAILgasm documentary which is all about the rise of nail art. Here's NAILgasm on Facebook.

These are my nails for the documentary and man, they were a pain to do. Fairy dragons are some of my favourite things to paint when I do actual paintings, but I have never ever tried to paint them so unbelievably tiny. These nails took many hours to do and my poor neck and back were screaming once I'd finished. Either way, I think they're quite lovely!

Reddit 52 Week Challenge: Inspired by a game

This took me somewhere I didn't expect to go! I'm a bit of a video game geek, so I had all kinds of ideas for this theme. I never expected to end up in Candyland. Although, to be fair, one never really expects to end up in Candyland.

In case you don't know, Candyland is a very cute, colourful boardgame loved mostly by little children. The reason I picked it was because I just felt like doing something cute and colourful. Maybe it's all the Halloween stuff I've been doing.

This was an ambitious undertaking, but in the end, I love it.

Dragons and aliens with A England and Cheeky

I took a break yesterday and just chilled with Mini Rob. Today I wanted to use two of my newest acquisitions - my gorgeous new polish from A England and my new Cheeky stamping plates!

A England Dragon is just generally awesome. It has some of my favourite things you can have in polish - green, holo, duochrome and perfect formula. And when I was ordering my Cheeky plates there was one plate that I just loved so much - CH32, the monster (or alien) plate!
