Crumpet's Nail Tarts 26 Great Nail Art Ideas Challenges- Blue & Silver mani

Hello, my lovely readers, I can't believe we are at the end of yet another week. This week has been an exhausting week and now my poor little Lexi is ill too, so plenty of cuddles and kisses. Today's post it a really special one, as I am starting my first nail art challenge. I recently was invited to join the Crumpet Nail Tarts 26 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge, by fellow blogger Bethany from B Nailed To Perfection. This is a bi-weekly nail art challenge that will last for a whole year, the first prompt is Blue and Silver, so let's take a look at what I came up with.



As it is October I just had to do a spooky Halloween mani, and when I thought of these colours I knew straight away the blue polish that I wanted to use. I picked this beauty up recently from fragrance direct, a great bargain.


This stunning polish is OPI Give Me Space from last years winter collection, I have been told this is a close dupe to Zoya's Dream which is on my lemming list. It had a gorgeous deep blue jelly base with tons of blue scattered holographic glitter. This looks just like the night sky, it really has impressed me and I have no idea why I didn't pick this up sooner. Just 2 coats to reach full opacity and an easy to apply formula. 


For my silver stamping, I used a plate I picked up recently for Mundo De Unas. I tried to create the look of a graveyard with a grim reaper, the plate I purchased was ZZ Halloween 01 and it definitely a must have Halloween plate.


There is just about every image you could possibly want to create a spooky Halloween mani, the plate cost $4.50 (£3.67) so a great little bargain. All images picked up really well the first time, it is very deeply etched so I am pretty sure it could stamp well with all different stamping polish, for my mani I used Born Pretty Silver Stamping polish. 

There we have my contribution to the first week of the Crumpet Nail Tarts nail art challenge, I can't wait to see what all the other ladies come up with. I will have all of their mani's and blogs listed down below. I hope you have enjoyed my Blue and Silver mani, and keep your eyes peeled for the next prompt on the 28th. 

As always have a fabulous nail day and I will to all you wonderful people again soon.
