The three polishes I used for this look were Barelements Grey along with Avon's Licorice and French White Tip.

This idea has circles inside circles. It has a 70's look to me.
I used Avon's Tweed for the main colour, then created the largest circle with Sunshine also by Avon. The second largest circle was done in Art Orange again by Avon and the next smaller circle was with Orange Orange by Nail Treats. The smallest circle was done using Avon's Cherry Jubilee although it look just the same as the Tweed in this combination.

I used my new dotting tool small end to make the stripes and found they came out nicer than when I had previously used a toothpick to draw lines. I then dotted the colour blobs on with the dotting tool, but used a toothpick to make the messy blob ends.

I am not quite fully awake this morning and forgot at first that it was Toesday, but I eventually clued in. haha

To make these nails you simply put single coats of various colour polishes and then use a brush dipped in nail polish remover to wash away the layers underneath.

"Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue,
And a half penny for your shoe."
At least that's what my mother told me. She was holding on to a half penny for my wedding day, but I don't know if she still has it or has given up on that ever happening.

I tried to capture the gorgeous opal like glitter on these flowers, but the photos didn't turn out the greatest, not a professional camera nor am I a professional photographer that's for sure. >.< I think you can barely make it out if you look hard enough.
I started off trying to make white roses with the powder opal glitter for the rose tips, however the glitter was too translucent and it ended up looking like white blobs with clumps of glitter on them. (lol) So these are my second attempt at doing them.
I thought perhaps I could use my pale grey to do the rose tips under the glitter, so I made large roses on the nails and then I made the mistake of letting the polish dry before adding the glitter. I then used a clear polish, which was too difficult to see where I had applied it and ended up just glittering the entire flower. So, the result is they look like glittery flowers rather than glitter tipped white roses. Oh, well, I may try this again in future.

Today we did Shamrocks in the nail art class I teach. I think some of the ladies were a little shy to try it, but I hope they had fun and learned something anyway. :-)

I really try to clean up my cuticles and make my finger tips look photo worthy. With the naked eye they look wonderful, but once that macro setting on the camera photographs them, they look awful. Maybe I need to get my eyes checked? haha
Here is the tutorial I followed to make these beautiful nails:

For these nails, I used Avon's Romance for the main colour and Decadence for the french tip. I then applied the gems, also from Avon and used top coat to seal them on. I used a clear nail polish for the stripe just above the french tip and while that stripe of polish was still wet I added Avon's Brilliant Chrome powder glitter for the final touch, so the glitter powder would stick to it.
