The Cuteberry Nail Challenge day 8: Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band inspired nails & September What’s In-die Box? nail mail

Whoa! Long title, hey? Today I bring you day eight ofΒ The Cuteberry Nail Challenge, which is your favourite album cover. My all-time favourite band is The Beatles. I have always loved The Beatles, but it wasn’t until university when I started to fully appreciate their greatness. My favourite album by far is Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. I’m not totally sure why either… there’s just something about it that appeals to me. I mean, this album started the whole concept album trend that was made big by other bands such as Pink Floyd and Genesis.

So I took the inspiration for my nail art from the cover of the album, namely the colours John, Ringo, Paul and George are wearing as well as the white button-y things on the front of their clothes.

Polishes I used:

  • Ulta3 Pink Hibiscus (pink)
  • Ulta3 Coral reef (orange)
  • Revlon Love Hurts (the green side called Love)
  • Mode Cosmetics Hook Me Up (blue)
  • Kiss Nail Art Paint striper in white

I really liked this nail design, even if it may be a little abstract. But there was no way I could replicate the whole album; I’m not even sure if the best nail artists could!

Anywho, this week I also received some awesome nail mail: my September What’s In-die Box?! This month’s theme is Sex and the City. I will be able to give you more information when I swatch them on the weekend, but at this stage I have to say I am a little underwhelmed by the polishes. I love Sex and the City and none of them lived up to my expectations apart from one from Peita’s Polish. I have below the packaging and some bottle shots for you.

It came in perfect packaging, as always! Very exciting to unwrap each polish.

So, that’s it for me. Sorry about another long post but I just have so much to post about lately! By the way, my favourite Beatle is Ringo, if you were wondering. Thanks for reading!

  1. I love the Sgt. Peper design. You chose fantastic colours! And the What’s In-die Box… amazing! I think I have nail polish envy…

  2. Wow, your design looks awesome! I agree with you that it’s not the best What’s In-die Box yet, but Lilypad Lacquer’s City Lights, and Emily de Molly’s Neutral Agreement are quite nice. Hopefully they turnout great once on.
