Challenge Week 6: Inspired by a Game!

This is a new theme in the 52 week challenge, and although there are a lot of games I love (my family love board games and card games) I couldn't decide what I'd like to do. I wasn't until I discovered an online version of UNO that I decided.

I have awesome memories of playing UNO with my Granda, we'd visit my Granny and Granda every Sunday for dinner, and while the other adults chatted and did boring things, my Granda would always sit on the carpet with me and play (what felt like) hundreds of rounds until dinner was ready :)

So yes, UNO nails it is:









I had a lot of fun painting these, and making my sister play UNO with me once I'd taken out all of the cards for inspiration and taking pictures :)





I used a base colour of green, yellow, red and blue for the coloured card nails, and black for the 'wild card' nail- then I added the white shape over the top with white polish and a tiny nail art brush- and on the very top, the coloured numbers (also with the tiny brush)


Barry M Spring Green and Pale Yellow, 17 Risky Red, Models Own Feeling Blue, e.l.f. Black and Models Own Snow White

I actually painted these nails quite a while ago now, and putting this post together has made me realise how much I really miss it!

When was the last time you painted your nails?

    1. Thanks :) Damn I'm jealous of your polish colour too- I'm getting excited about polish again though! I know, it just feels like such a lot of effort doesn't it... though hopefully I'm getting into a better routine at the moment :)
