30 day challenge.. Day 23-25

This challenge is now starting to get very interesting Ive been able to do alot of different nail art because of this challenge. These past couple of days Ive been mixing a matching different things like water decal, acrylic molds and free hand.

Day 23 mani inspired by a movie. I am a big kids a love watching cartoon movies and the movie I love and have watched a bunch of time is UP. Kevin is my favorite!

Day 24 mani inspired by a book.  I like to read Urban erotica so I picked a book I read recently Candy Licker by Noire.

Day 25 mani inspired by Fashion. I could not find a cool outfit that inspired me but I did find a bag. I have a thing for purses and my dream purse is of course a Louis Vuitton.

 That's it for today I have 5 day left in this challenge and I'm kinda sad that is coming to an end because it has been so fun and its inspired me to do some really cool manis.

Day 22 mani inspired by a song

I was really excited about this one because I love music and music videos are always very inspiring. I knew the video had to be from from Jessie J because her videos are so cool and have so much stuff going on. I finally decided on one Jessie J- Price tag.

And this is what I seen in the video that gave me the inspiration to this mani. Of course you have to have the price tag and for the other design was to match her outfit. 

Im pretty content with this mani just wish the price tag would have been a little neater. This is now one of my favorite songs.

Day 21 Mani inspired by a Color

Today I was searching for the Wet N Wild On the prowl collection when I seen this beautiful scarf and I just love the color and I went home without the scarf because I was broke so next best thing was to go home an paint my nails that same color. It was pretty hard since I forgot to get a picture of it but I managed to find a similar color OPI I eat mainely lobster. It went on smooth in 2 coats I was unable to capture the gold shimmer in it.

I love this color! I always fall in love with pink with a gold shimmer in. What color can you not resist to buy and wear no matter how many you have?

30 day challenge.. Day 18-20

Hello Ladies Ive been playing catch up with my 30 day challenge mani's since I started work again but Ive managed to get myself caught up. I have my manis for the past 3 days.

Half moon- I had a hard time with this one because I wanted to do a glossy bright pink and a matte black. I did 3 coats of Essie Punchy Pink with top coat and used binder paper reinforcements to create the half moon with Orly Matte vinyl. In this process I messed up my middle finger so I'm just not going to show it lol.. (not flipping you the bird)

Galaxies- For this one I kept it simple and just used a bunch of different glitters and hope that they would look like a bunch of planets and stars. 2 coats of Lippmanns Bad Romance, 1 coats of sinful colors hottie and China Glaze Techno.

Water Marbled- I am horrible at water marbling I can never get the polish to spread, do a design and actually re-create it on every nail. So I look to Youtube and seen a video of someone doing a water marbling design over a gradient of colors while using black and a translucent white. I used polishes from China Glaze poolside collection and a black and white polish. 

I liked my galaxy mani the best out of all the other were just a mess and it was also that I didn't take my time on them.

Day 11 (polka dots) & Day 12 (stripes)

Hello Ladies I have fallen a little behind on my daily challenge so I decided to post them together. I am back to work so its going to get a little tougher to post daily but I will try my best.

For my polka dot challenge I keep it pretty simple. Did 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri whirlwind white and stamped polka dot with all 4 colors from the Essence Whooom Boomm Collection.

Now for my stripes I did a a coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind white and stamped stripes with Orly Fancy Fuchsia and Konad black. 

That is all for today. Not very exciting I took both of these manis off pretty quick. Have a wonderful week ladies!

Day 10 Gradient

Hello ladies today I am a little late to post my Day 10 mani because I was getting my giveaway together so I posted that first since I've been promising it for a couple weeks now. I was pretty stuck on what colors I was going to use for my gradient. Then after looking at my swatch wheels I noticed I have a lot of blue holo polish. So I tried a out a bunch of colors together in a swatch wheel and finally found 2 that looked good together but I needed a 3rd color. Then I figured id mix up a 3rd color. For this mani I used Glitter gal marine blue, China glaze DV8 and the 3rd color was a mix of DV8 and GR8 and lastly I finished it off with a coat of OPI Whats Dune?

I couldn't get good pictures of the holoness since it was night time by the time I took photos of it. I am pretty content with this one just wish I had a better 3rd color that went along with the other 2. I'm probably gonna keep this mani and add a design over it like fish scales since it reminds me of a mermaids tail. Thank for reading ladies.
