So anyhoo, today is day 5 of the Flip Flop Challenge, and the theme was 3D or decals. (As an aside, my right hand is so cold I'm actually struggling to type...time to put the heating on I think!) Um...yes, so, as it happens, this theme fitted perfectly with the manicure I'd already done for this month's Polish Days! Is that cheating?
This month's Polish Days theme is nature. I've been loving The Polar Bear Family and Me on the BBC (I haven't seen the last episode yet, and god help anyone who tries to ruin it for me *glaaaaare*) so I created these cute little polar bear nails!
More velvet nails!
I used Barry M Matt White under the flocking powder, and Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream with a rubbish Saffron glitter that never dries, hence the state of my thumb nail.
I literally love polar bears so much. The guy on the program got to hold a little baby one, and I don't think I've ever been so jealous of anything ever. He did also have a bear having a good go at eating him...not so jealous of that one. If anyone's interested, the program's on You Tube (as I discovered when I went to watch the second episode on BBC iPlayer and it was gone! Almost ruined my day!).
I drew the face on with a Sharpie. I then went and did some dishes (a rare occurence) and both face and flocking powder were still intact.
So I have two sets of links for you today! All the other Flip Flop ladies and their 3D or decal manicures, and the Polish Days participants - I can't wait to see how everyone else interpreted the nature theme. Enjoy!
