Blue Roses - My Crumpet Amateur Nail Art Contest Entry

Greetings All!

So, Debbie over at The Crumpet hosts a monthly nail art contest. You can read all about it HERE, but basically if you have less than 100 followers, you can enter your nail art, and people vote for which one they like the best. The theme for this month is blue, and after I did my Grey Roses, I wanted to do them using another colour, so why not blue?

I used 6, yes 6 untried blue polishes for this manicure! I started with Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Himalayan Blue, a lovely fresh bright blue. This is 2 coats, with matte topcoat.

Then while sifting through polishes to find some blues, I decided I wanted to add a bit of glitter. I used 1 coat of OPI Last Friday Night, and another coat of matte.

I drew on the roses using Collection 2000 Button Moon, and the details in BMX Bandit. I got both in my first polish swap! With Claire from Kerruticles. We both got multipacks of Collection 2000 in Poundland (3 for £1!) so we swapped some duplicates.

I added even more petal detail with OPI Blue My Mind, and drew the leaves with OPI Into The Night. To be honest, I think I probably used too many polishes. It's a bit busy, and I prefer the grey ones!

A quick reminder, you can enter and vote HERE, you can enter until the 23rd of March and then voting begins. I guess I should ask you nicely to vote for me, but really you should just have a look and vote for your favourite!


  1. These are very pretty, original idea to do the roses and the petals blue as well as the background! X

  2. You do yourself a disservice - I think these are fab!


I love it when you awesome people leave comments! I read and treasure them all, and I'll always respond to a question as soon as I can.
