Same Colours, Different Looks

Good Afternoon! So while I am swatching, I have a few nail art previously did, but have yet to seen to be showcased here. I have done these for Section two of Tip Top Nails South Africa Nail Art Contest. For section two, participants are required to use only Red, Nude, Brown, Purple and Pink with an addiction of a different colour each week. They are still welcoming participants so feel free to stop by their page and join in the fun!

Section 2, Week 1 : Mosaic and Stained Glass

Lacqueerisa: Mosaic Shards

This is my take for the week. Being a little cheeky and playing with rules. Part of the requirement for Week 1 submission was to use black as outline. Haha! So, I sort of outlined by bordering it, you know? Hahaha! Anyway, if you have noticed this is yet another inspired by Chelsea's Get Nailed! She inspires me so much! Never failed to come up with looks that will just wow me away :D 

Section 2, Week 2 : Flowers!

Lacqueerisa: Graphic Flowers

For week 2's theme I sought to play with negative and positive spaces. My only regret is that the flowers shapes hardly shows. Lol. Pity. I did dry brush strokes as bases for each nail. The flowers were inspired by Baby's Breath and Fire Pink. Well, apparently I have not read the rules closely enough. Black wasn't listed in the allowed colours for week 2. Haha, my mistake there. I have assumed the colours were the same week after week, so..aw my bad. Hadn't meant to break the rules. 

And the list of nail polishes used as well as tool:

And this concludes my walk with this contest. Haha, I have since withdrawed from it. I have tons of other plans for my blog. Pending ideas for nail arts, as well as swatches that are dued. LOL! However, I did have fun participating so far. It's been really interesting coming up with different looks with the same colour schemes. 


  1. I love how your first one turned out! And I can't believe it's the same colors! What a change! When will you know the contest results?

    1. I'm not sure how the judging system goes. But I do know there are still about 10 weeks more. Haha! And thank you! That it's my favourite too :D

  2. I like the first design very much! And the look of accent and little finger nails are so beautiful too! Kinda "sunset in Savanna" :)) Great work!

    1. Thank you! Glad that you're enjoying them, as much as I enjoy doing them! ♥

  3. The stained glass mosiac look is gorgeous!!! So much love for it :)

  4. whoah you really use the same colors for both? Amazing, they look so different *_* I already saw the 2nd one on twitter and already liked it but I must say I'm even more impressed with the 1st one! hihi

    1. Thank you! And they are so simple to do too! (once you get the hang of it!) Mosaics are definitely one of my favs to tackle! I don't think I'd get tired of geometric/mosaic nails any soon! ♥
