31 Days of Nail Art Challenge - Day 6 - Purple

I know, I know, I haven't posted for ages! (well almost a week actually) And I am sorry, but it's because my camera is being majorly weird and won't let me upload anything! :'( 

I've temporarily fixed it, it's a long story but my method of moving photos isn't particularly good for the camera so it better fix itself soon! 

Anyway, on to the post that was supposed to have been posted on Monday:


Purple.

My favourite colour.

A colour I used to wear but only had 3 shades of, one being a hideous sheer pearly grey toned lilac.

But now I have waaaay more, much nicer, shades and I love almost all of them.

Here's the problem: I don't like this mani. Well I do, but not in the photos. The colours look off, the sparkle is dead and it just looks messy. I wish it would look more like it did in real life but oh well, just try and imagine it.

So here it is:

I used a base of Kiko 245 and the did the stripes freehand with Andrea Fulerton Flip Flops in Ruby and Millie. On my accent nail I used the Andrea Fulertons to create a pink to blue gradient, but the colour disappeared in the photos :(

Strange angle but it shows off the gold and silver tones:
Weird underwater photo that is probably the most colour accurate and shows off the duochromeness:
There was a hell of a lot of gold and silver duochrome in real life but it just didn't want to show up in most of the photos....

And don't forget to check out what Stephanie and Wendy have created this week!
