31 Day Challenge 2014: *05*

I don't know about you, but I'm soooooo glad that Friday is FINALLY here. It's just been one of those weeks, you know? Holiday weeks are always difficult for me. Having that extra day to spend with Peanut makes me reeeeally miss her during the rest of the week. I'm definitely looking forward to weekend snuggles!

The 31 Day Challenge is still going strong, and I'm still going strong with it. Ask me how I feel in a week or two, when the prompts get harder, though! Green is gone, and BLUE is the color of the day!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Rainbow Honey 488nm
2 Coats Rainbow Honey Best Friend (accent)
1 Coat Sinful Colors Clear Coat (non-accent)
1 Coat Seche Vite

Part of my goal during this challenge is to use mainly untried polishes from my stash. A challenge in a challenge, if you will! I've been planning to wear 488nm for blue day since I first checked out the prompts. :)

488nm was part of the August Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag. (I'll be posting more about that soon!) It's a sky-blue polish unlike any other blue in my stash. Honestly, I'm not sure that I would've picked this color out for myself. That's probably the coolest part about the whole mystery bag concept. I also ordered Rainbow Honey Best Friend at the same time. It's a glitter topper with a clear base, super-fine blue sparkle and matte glitter in white and black triangles, coral and yellow stars, goldenrod hexes, pink hexes, blue hexes and green squares. There's a lot going on inside the bottle, but the triangle glitter was the main draw for me.

Application was great with 488nm. I definitely could've used 2 coats, but something always makes me paint on that 3rd one. Best Friend is defininely a glitter that you have to finesse onto your nails. Despite my best efforts, I still ended up with bubbles on all of my accent nails.

The prompt for tomorrow is VIOLET, and I've already got about a million and one ideas about what I could do. Okay, not really, maybe more like 7 or 8, but still. Which one to choose?!?
