31 Day Challenge 2014: *27*

by - 10/02/2014

Technically, yesterday was supposed to be that last day of the #31DC2014, but I'm a liiiiiittle bit behind. So, last night, I did 2 manicures in an attempt to catch up and bring this thing home. Pattern nails were first, followed by nails inspired by ARTWORK...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Wet N Wild LAC-My Mani?
Sally Hansen Grape Jelly
Sally Hansen Ice Tint
Sally Hansen Jell-ous?
Sally Hansen Sea Through
1 Coat OPI Pirouette My Whistle
1 Coat Seche Vite

You know, this is another one of those prompts that stumped me for a little bit. I'm not artistically inclined, which might make you wonder why I chose to take on a nail ART challenge. Some days, I wonder the same thing! But, for the most part, I've really enjoyed the 31 Day Challenge, and that's kind of the point. To be challenging... right?

This past summer marked the release of Sheer Tints by OPI, followed by Sally Hansen's Triple Shine Palm Beach Jellies. With both of those collection came along something called a "watercolor" manicure. That ended up being the inspiration for my artwork nails, once I painted on 3 coats of Wet N Wild LAC-My Mani.

I've actually wanted to recreate this look for a while, but I've had such issues with white polish in the past, that I never bothered trying it. So glad that this popped into my head last night. I like it a lot, and will probably do something like this again in the future.

Next up... Day 28! No idea what I'm doing with this one either, seems to be a theme lately, huh? Nails inspired by A FLAG. This would be a lot easier if all flags incorporated glitter. Just sayin'. o.O
