Rush Hour

Today I have managed to find a lovely new nail challenge that I think I am going to try and get involved in...

I find a lot of nail challenges on some of the blogs I read but find that I never have time to do them!  I barely had time to write this post today!   I am going to try and get involved with this one as I like the themes, but to be honest I don’t know if i’ll be able to change my polish every day, but I will try my hardest...

This one is from the lovely Lindsey at Neverland Nail Blog and is sponsored by Nail Polish Canada – see the picture for details on each day!  I am already inspired (albeit indecisive) for my day 1 nails!

This evening after work I have been invited to the a sneak preview of the autumn/winter range for Front Cover Cosmetics by the lovely Lucy at Gloss Communications.  I am looking forward to seeing their new range, Front Cover was a staple Christmas present for me for the last few years running, the sets they did in Boots were awesome!  Can’t wait to see what they have to offer!  Then I have to run home, jump in the bath and wash my hair with fairy liquid (long story, booked in for a strip and colour change on the 29th October so have to make my hair fade as much as possible between now and then, eek!) and then i’ll settle down to try and do this.  I can’t decide what decade I should pick for my nails out of the following:

1920’s – Flapper chic
1950’s – Full skirts and poodles, ala Grease
1960’s – flower power!
1970’s – platforms, perms and Saturday Night Fever!

I feel like I am swaying more towards the 60’s (just because I think that nail art would be the easier to do, is that bad?)  Also because one of my all time favourite films ‘Mermaids’ (yes the one starring Cher, Winona Ryder and Christina Ricci) is set in 1963 so I could totally draw inspiration from that.  On the other hand I do love Grease and could easily conjure up some Grease inspired nail art with my lovely new nail art brushes!  More about them tomorrow...

Let me know if you decide to participate in the challenge too, it’s my first one so don’t worry if you think you’ll be rubbish – I’m pretty much certain I will be too! 

I'll be sure to do a proper post on my new nail art brushes and the Front Cover event tomorrow too - I'll try and get some decent pictures too although I forgot my camera to have to rely on the iPhone!  Nightmare day! :(
