31 Day Challenge – Day 31: Re-create your favorite challenge

2 Feb

It’s the last day of the challenge today!! The challenge was to re-create your favorite challenge, I thought about this for a while because there were several I’d like to try again but finally decided on the rainbow challenge.

I used the same polishes and process as in the original challenge, but I tried doing some white clouds on the bottom and ended up not liking them so I sponged over them. I think my dots are starting to look better!

So that was the 31 Day Challenge, I know it took me forever to finish it but I had lots of fun and I got to try some new things that I probably would not have tried by myself. :)

31 Day Challenge – Day 30: Inspired by a Tutorial

31 Jan

For a while now I’ve wanting to try Wacky Laki’s Blue Jeans tutorial, and today’s challenge seemed the right time to finally give it a try!

Here are my Blue Jeans nails!

Blue Jeans nails

I applied China Glaze First Mate for the blue base and used Wet n Wild French White Creme for the sponging and details. It’s not as neat as hers but not too bad for the first try. I need more practice with the toothpick, I’m not sure my pocket looks much like a pocket! :P

My index finger is still icky so I cropped it out of the first picture, but at least the cut doesn’t hurt anymore. And there is only one challenge left, it’s been lots of fun!

Thanks for looking! :)

31 Day Challenge – Day 29: Inspired by the Supernatural

29 Jan

For this inspired by the supernatural challenge, I thought of some fairy like images in my Red Angel stamping set, fairies are supernatural right? :P
I’m only taking pictures of three fingers because I got a nasty papercut right at the cuticle on my index finger, so I don’t want to paint it and it looks all swollen anyway.

Inspired by the Supernatural

I started with Sinful Colors Black on Black as my base color. Then I applied a light coat of Lynnderella Bride of Franken (I love this so much!!). For the stamping I used Color Club Lumin-icecent, Foil Me Once and Perfect Mol-ten and images from plates RA-111, RA-112, and RA-113. I added some random flakies around the edges with Finger Paints Motley. I really love how this turned out so I have a few more pictures!

I love how from different angles I can see the flakies and the tiny holo glitter, it’s so pretty!

Open bottle of Bride of Franken. Doesn’t it look magical?? :)

Thanks for looking!

31 Day Challenge – Day 28: Inspired by a Flag

26 Jan

Today’s nails are inspired by a flag, and I chose the flag from Peru since that’s where I’m from. The flag has three vertical stripes in red, white and red, so this a very simple design.

French White Creme and Hey Sailor

I freehanded the stripes with Wet n Wild French White Creme (I’m using this a lot during this challenge), and China Glaze Hey Sailor. I should have used tape or something so the lines would be more straight!

31 Day Challenge – Day 27: Inspired by Artwork

24 Jan

Today’s nails are based on a painting we have hanging above of our fireplace. My husband got it at an auction a couple of years ago, and I wasn’t sure about it back then but now I like how it looks in our living room! :)

I flipped the first picture around because I painted this upside down and didn’t notice until I was almost done. I probably shouldn’t paint my nails right after taking my medicine (I’m starting to feel better though)!
I started with a coat of Wet n Wild French White Creme, and then sponged several different polishes. I already forgot everything I used, some of them were Essie Borrowed and Blue, Orly Mint Mojito, Zoya Yummy. I used a brush and Color Club Artsy Crafty for the trees.

And here is a picture of the painting:

Thanks for looking! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! :)
