The Nail Wheel Of Fortune – Month Three – August 2013 – Neon and Glitter

The Nail Wheel of Fortune

Month Three

August 2013

This month I made my Nail Wheel of Fortune a little different. All my swatches correspond to a spreadsheet and every swatch has it’s own number. Since summer now seems to be drawing towards it’s end here in northern England, I decided that I wanted to wear more neon colours and more glitters. So I used random.org to pick a number, and the first glitter or neon varnish under that number on my list is the one I wore.

And so this post is super late in going up, but one of my best friends came across from America for a visit and we went to Edinburgh, so I’ve been busy having fun!

So the first glitter randomly chosen was Lac Attack’s Muggles. I was originally going to layer this over E.l.f’s Lilac, but when I went to get that varnish E.l.f’s Mint Cream caught my eye and that is what I ended up using as my base colour.

The Nail Wheel Of Fortune – Month Two – July 2013

The Nail Wheel of Fortune

Month Two

July 2013

So for the month if July, in an effort to wear some of my less used nail varnishes, I resurrected my Nail Wheel if Fortune idea, where I have been randomly picking a nail varnish to wear, click here to see the inspiration behind the idea and here to see the first month. The exception to this rule is when I decided to do nail art, which happened on a couple of occasions this month. I also tried to change my nail varnish at least every other day.

The first colour I randomly picked was Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear’s Crushed, which is a lovely metallic orange colour.

The Nail Wheel of Fortune – Month One – February 2013

The Nail Wheel of Fortune

Month One

February 2013

The first month of randomly picking which nail varnish to wear!

The first random colour I picked from my nail wheels was China Glaze’s Pool Party. And my automatic thought was “why am I doing this?!” I only really wear neons in the summer and I think I wore Pool Party on my toes constantly for about two months last year. I created an accent nail with a new-to-me nail varnish, which is Lime Crime’s Pastelchio (I love this nail varnish).

The Nail Wheel of Fortune!

So, for the month of February at least, my Nails of the Month post is going to be a little different. I’ve decided to do what I’m going to call the Nail Wheel of Fortune. This was inspired by one of my favourite people to watch on YouTube, ChaChaCakes. If you haven’t watched her videos, check out her channel here, I totally love her and the all the videos she does, but especially her nail varnish videos.
