40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Geeks

Image
The theme for this week is Geeks.  I'm posting late this week as I had to get my geek on and set up the Xbox One my son got for his birthday.  He is finally home from hospital for a few days and getting the chance to use his new console for the first time.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Teal

Image
The prompt for this week is Teal.  For all the colour weeks in this challenge each participant is also given a different pattern or technique.  My technique for teal was reciprocal gradient.


I thought I would use a stamp to overlay the second gradient rather than the usual tape technique.  This also shows I couldn't make up my mind which pattern to use on the stamping plate so decided to use more than one.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hobbies

I had great plans for this return to blogging by starting a new nail art challenge.  I still intend to take part in the challenge but sometimes life goes and throws a big spanner in the works.  At the beginning of September my son was admitted to hospital and diagnosed with Adult Acute Myeloid Leukaemia or AML for short.

He is still in hospital after having his first cycle of chemotherapy which lasted for 10 days! This means at the moment my hobby is hospital visiting (the hospital is 60 miles from home). As I don't like driving into the city (Google Haudagain Roundabout to find out why) and there is very limited parking I am taking the bus to the hospital which takes just over 2 hours.
