31 Day Challenge 2014: *26*

by - 10/02/2014

When it came time to take my fashion nails off and tackle the PATTERN prompt... I blanked. Totally spaced. No idea what to do. So, I did a plastic wrap manicure.

Pink, Purple, and Blue Saran Wrap Mani

When I topped it with Seche, I contemplated stamping it after letting it dry for 10-15 minutes. But I couldn't do it. I liked the saran wrap mani too much to risk losing all my progress. So, I went to bed, and wore the above mani all day yesterday.

Last night, I was in a braver mood, and I had a base polish that was alllllll ready to play nicely with my newly acquired stamping kit. It's the Fing'rs stamping kit, and I found mine at WalMart. For quite some time, I've been mulling over whether or not to buy myself a stamping kit. This was honestly a great way for me to get my feet wet without spending too much money. You get a stamper, 2 plates, a scraper, and a mini polish for $6.48!

I chose the houndstooth pattern for my stamping, and for my first time, I'm pretty pleased with how everything turned out. Since I'm so behind on this challenge, I wanted to knock another prompt out last night, and took this off immediately after photographing. Please excuse the yellowness of the pics, my Cybershot doesn't like to take pictures indoors.

Not too bad, huh? I was pretty impressed, considering it was my first attempt at stamping! If I would've worn this for a whole day, I probably would've chosen a different color to stamp with. The white makes too stark of a contrast against the base, for my taste, anyway!

Chugging right along to the prompt for Day 27... (you know, on day 32 of the 31 Day Challenge... but who's counting, really?) nails inspired by ARTWORK.
